First of all, welcome to the Forums. Hope you'll still have lots of enjoyment here.

That is an awesome photo! Surely the best I've yet seen of the Crab! Thanks for posting.

I was reading that European astronomers have discovered 32 new planets outside of our solar system! Some of them with maybe the potential for life. :big_eyes:

Cool! I've got dibs on a nice secluded island with a sunbathed beach. But wait, they won't be anywhere near the sun. So make that a Gliese 581 bathed beach. :D

I believe that some of them are closer to the local Sol than Mercury is - major SOL block might be required :wink: :big_eyes:
