Interstellar may have vanquished your dreams of becoming an astronaut already, but if you still have the desire to head into space, these photos may make you think again. Some demonstrate just how dangerous it is to be an astronaut working in the field, so to speak, while others sort of look like Hell incarnate.
Take the black hole photo, for example. It doesn't make space look like a very friendly place. Bowie may have wondered if there was life on Mars but lots of people wouldn't want to find out after seeing the Sith-like image of the Dark Planet. It almost screams, "Run away and never come back!"
