While I was away….

While I was away for my two-day-long holiday:

  1. WordPress chose my post about Libya and Yemen to be Freshly Pressed! Huzzah! That’s very nice, and a warm hello and thank you to all newcomers!
  2. Twitter macher Andy Carvin rescued a kitten!
  3. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released pictures of galaxies eight billion light years from earth — as taken by their “Dark Energy Camera“!

Oh, and Mitt Romney was revealed to be exactly who we knew him to be.

Way to wait for me to catch up, universe.

    Your link led you astray, I’m afraid – the Blanco telescope hosting DECam is run by the National Optical Astronomical Observatories (NOAO), funded by the National Science Foundation, not NOAA.

    Still cool, though!
