With my keen eye for astrophotography I'd say this is definitely a crack in the universe. An image like yours can't be faked unlike the lunar landing stuff.

The latest images from the Planck space telescope prove the whole universe is sub-standard. Shoddy workmanship if you ask me.

What do you expect! You send a plank (may be bad spelling...) into space. Just one plank - without any significant DR. It is bound to get substandard pictures - if any... Duh!

Its not really a crack, its a joint.
A universal joint.
(These occur quite often, in fact there are several in my jeep.) ;)

Actually, what we need here is some duct tape. It has a light side and a dark side and binds the universe together.

It is sad however that there seems to be an abject lack of seriousness concerning an image that I struggled so hard to bring to fruition. 
A stake through the heart would be a delicate way to phrase my feelings.     :'(      :)

Its a photograph of the universe taken through a filter composed of a thin sheet of ice with food coloring added taken at sub-freezing temperatures and the filter was cracked when a polar bear took a swipe at your camera. :D

Chauncey, if the Planck image inspired your picture, then that's great!  If you decided it looked like it after the fact, I guess that's interesting too.
