Star Light, Star Bright


This image released by NASA, captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, shows spirals of dust swirling across trillions of kilometres of interstellar space. This image is Hubble's latest view of a distant star, named V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon)(AFP/NASA/HHT)

Granted, I'm a space geek and I'm also a little drunk...but that is cool.

Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars...let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars...

As opposed as I am to his other initiatives, Bush's space proposal has my almost undying support. I know we have homeless in the United States that could use our assistance, but the scientific advances that could be made in the attempt to land a man on Mars could far outweigh a few street-corner deaths. Seatbelts, satellite TV, bar coding and smoke detectors are all things that the space program have given the modern world thanks to the dream of "the final frontier."

Wow. When I first saw this, I thought it looked like a winged dragon wrapped around a red gem or planet .. like something you'd have on a necklace. That's purty!

TV, that is a great description! I can totally see that in the photo, now.
