This website allows you to determine which nearby stars are about to enter your personal light-cone. By this reckoning my birthday is only 2 weeks away from reaching this beauty. HR 483 is a lovely little binary with good potential for hosting life.

This is a beautiful slide show of astronomical images starting with the Pleiades and leapfrogging out to the Hercules cluster of galaxies, and looking back in time from Copernicus to the age of the trilobites.

These images are awe-inspiring.

Herschel and Planck are on their way to L2, and soon I hope we'll be seeing new and exciting discoveries from the science teams involved.

[personal profile] purplecthulhu, a friend of ours, and one of the scientists involved, posts his first impressions here. Well done PC!
