Cosmic Thoughts

Frustrated with another SPL weekend ruined by weather (though, on the plus side, the referees can’t send any Aberdeen players off), I decided to trawl the ‘net.

The Hubble Telescope site has some new photos of 30 Doradus, it’s “only” 180,000 light-years from earth and, beng a small galaxy, “only” consists of about 10 billion stars.

Pretty amazing, to see the universe, considered to be 14 billion years old, is still growing.
