“A purple nebula, in honor of Prince, who passed away today” tweeted NASA on Thursday April 21st, 2016 along with the passing of musical superstar Prince. The image is that of the Crab Nebula which NASA had reiterated that it was “an iconic supernova remnant in our Milky Way galaxy”.
Well done NASA. This is by far the most epic and wonderful tribute that anyone could have asked for. Especially someone like Prince, whose music pulled on the heartstrings of millions throughout the decades.
This year has been tough on us with losing celebritys who have had such a crucial impact on our upbringing. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Harper Lee, Natalie Cole, and Lemmy Kilmister just to name a few. One can only hope that they’re rockin’ out on the other side. Please 2016, on my behalf and the behalf of others, be more kind to those we have grown up with.
