Pillars of CreationI am an astronomy nerd.

My fascination with all things "out there" likely came first from numerous childhood trips to the Morrison Planetarium and then from the pictures taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Not interested, you say?

Take a look at these Hubble photographs. I suspect you'll change your mind.

Helix NebulaIntrigued?


Now take a look at the The Best of NASA Photos,Vol. 1 DVD, which is available at several of our libraries. You won't be disappointed.

Another fascinating documentary is 400 Years of the Telescope: A Journey of Science, Technology and Thought.

If you're interested, let me know. We might even schedule a showing at the library!
