Want to see outer space in all its 3-D glory? Then the first thing you should do is toss away those headache-inducing glasses.

Instead, all you have to do is cross your eyes, thanks to industrial engineer Jukka-Pekka Metsävainio, who's figured out a computer method that allows him to render his photographic images in stereo, according to the London Telegraph.

Just stare at these images on your screen and unfocus your eyes. At first, you'll still get double vision as each eye sees the two images separately. But if you move your head forward and back from the screen, with a little patience the images will eventually overlap and let you see a stunning single image in 3-D.

So—were you able to make it work for you?
