The basis of this abstraction is the photography of galaxies. Once an advanced telescope takes a photograph of a galaxy, that photograph is then enhanced with vibrant, gem-like colors. While outer space is darker in reality, such enhancements are made to bring small but significant details to the surface, to give scientists the visuals that they need to study features that would otherwise not be visible to the naked eye. With that said, the colors that one sees in a photograph of a galaxy, or of any celestial mass, serves the viewer both aesthetically and functionally.
