Today's post is a little bit of a cope out. I saw this video on another blog that I follow and just had to share it, if you haven't seen it already. It's the Known Universe, as mapped so far. Amazing, props to Leviuqse.
In some sadder news, the Space Shuttle Discovery's last flight is scheduled to take place on February 24 at 16:50 (4:50PM) Eastern time. It's been plagued with delays because of external tank problems. We don't need the tank blowing up on lift off. Hopefully all will go smoothly with this somber occasion and NASA can continue to look forward with new technology and new missions.
Now for the lighter side, CATURDAY!
This past summer, Maryland had a notorious stinkbug up rising. It wasn't that much fun, but our cats had fun with them. Anyways, here we are in the second half of winter and they still pop-up every now and again, especially in warm places like houses. This morning I found this sitting outside my door.
