Interesting story behind that picture....

One of the technicians accrued a few hours of time through working on the Hubble telescope... so to use it... he trained the scope on an area that was thought to... have nothing in it.... annoyed the hell out every astronomer in the world....

And that's what he found..... from memory... there's over 75,000 galaxys in that photo....


That patch of sky they looked at is rather small too.
If you picture how big a marble looks being held up to the sky, while being held by a person 10m away from you, that is the area of the sky Hubble focused on.
And it revealed that many galaxys
Rather humbling really

(Not a TED talk, but I find it fascinating)

Not sure if this one has been posted before. Gives you a different perspective of IKEA.

So the kid in the middle is ten.

The first few months were spent sitting around waiting for it's eyes to open (or is that puppies)

Then the throwing up bit.

Then the falling over a lot phase.

more throwing up

Eating dirt...

blah blah blah

That cant leave more than 6 years of proper practice potential.

What are you waiting for people. Learn an instrument before you drop dead suddenly!
