Space Nerds Unite


Okay, so anyone who knows me well is aware that I am passionate about a few key things.

Art, cheese, and space. Well, nerdom in general, but especially space.  At least once a week I find myself on the Hubble site, looking through the gallery. In fact the Carina Nebula is my desktop backrgound and my screen saver is, you guessed it, images from space.

So, when I found out that Hubble turns twenty today (As my friend and fellow Tog, Josh Wellington says “it’s almost old enough to drink.”) I was super excited!

So here is a tribute to you Hubble:
