Woot.

And if you don't know what Hubble is, it's a satelite that was launched 20 years ago. Since then, it took amazing pictures of the universe.

You can look at them here; http://hubblesite.org/

Heh, I have birthday on the same day as the Hubble telescope. :P I was in the Tycho Brahe Planetarium yesterday, where the telescope was the theme, and there was premiere on a new, beautiful IMAX-video about the telescope.

Have you seen the new picture released two days ago from Hubble, Mystic Mountain?

Yeah! I saw that just yesterday on an APOD poll! Hahaha, STScI-PRC2010-13a, nice name.

I was at the Challenger Space Center yesterday, and I told some people that were there with telescopes that I had something wrong with my telescope align thing, and they said they would check it out whenever I go to one again, and they let me join them by having my telescope there as a VIEWING telescope! YAY!!!!!!!!!
