...pity, i like to remind members that we are a community that can find a great deal of wealth within the rubble of past conversations.

...in any case,

this link works though, and if you love the stars, their exhibit may be worth visiting.

cheers!

News from Mars: A mile-deep ice crater and marsquakes

The European Space Agency released an image taken by its Mars Express mission on Thursday, showing the crater filled with water ice.

The ancient name of the island of Cyprus, “Alasia” has been given to a star shining 137 light years away while the name of Cyprus’ most ancient doctor, “Onasilos”, will go to the giant gas exoplanet orbiting the star in the constellation of Ophiuchus.

Tuesday night's full moon will be the biggest of the year, as the moon is quite close to its perigee, its closest approach to Earth.

On April 7, the moon will be just 221,772 miles from Earth, some 30,000 miles closer than it was just two weeks ago.

"This proximity will provide the largest appearance of the moon for the whole year, commonly called a supermoon," according to NASA.

The moon will appear biggest around 10:30 p.m ET on Tuesday evening. It will be highest in the sky around midnight.
