Hubble Space Photos

If you looking for some creative background for your desktop computer, why not a space photo from Hubble Space Telescope?

There are lots of creative images to choose from. They are inspiring to wonder just what is out there.

Website Description

Named in honor of the trailblazing astronomer Edwin Hubble, the Hubble Space Telescope is a large, space-based observatory, which has revolutionized astronomy since its launch and deployment by the space shuttle Discovery in 1990. Far above rain clouds, light pollution, and atmospheric distortions, Hubble has a crystal-clear view of the universe. Scientists have used Hubble to observe some of the most distant stars and galaxies are yet seen, as well as the planets in our solar system.

Hubble has made more than 1.5 million observations over the course of its lifetime. Over 19,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers have been published on its discoveries, and every current astronomy textbook includes contributions from the observatory. The telescope has tracked interstellar objects as they soared through our solar system, watched a comet collide with Jupiter, and discovered moons around Pluto.

Bullet Point to Blog Section

This was generated by Copy.ai:

I originally carried the idea of a social news platform around in my head for a long time. It was not until I saw the result of another programmer's experiment with Reddit that I realized it could work. I took the basic concepts of his Reddit clone and started developing my own ideas.

I knew about Reddit for quite some time but never really understood what it is all about. After using it for a while I was hooked, and couldn't help but think that I could do something similar, but better.

The idea behind cryan.com is to create a simple, fast, and easy-to-use social news platform where everyone can submit links to interesting Internet tools and websites they have discovered during their surfing sessions.

Cryan.com tries to provide an intuitive interface so that anyone can quickly post links to interesting websites that would otherwise be lost in the flood of information on the Internet.

This site is a collection of internet tools. Some are fun and can be used to kill time, some are very useful, some are only useful when you have the right programming knowledge, and some others are just cool.

Letter to Yourself in the Future

Have you set goals for 2022? Want to make some accountability? Why not write a letter to your future self?

The website futureme.org lets you create emails that will be sent to you in the future. You can set the date to be 1 year, 3 years, 5 years or more.

The site has been around for 20-years. So it's not going anyplace - certainly worth a simple letter so say "Hi!"

Good news is the service is free!

Website Description

Way back in 2002, we had a crazy idea that it would be fun to get a surprise letter from the past. So we spent a couple of weekends making FutureMe. Here's what the original version of FutureMe looked like!. We told some friends...who told some of their friends...and so on...and now many, many millions of letters have been written to the future. Some of these letters have been delivered from the past, and many more are still time-traveling into the future.

NightSky this Month

The Boston Museum of Science puts out a handy graphic of what is in the night sky over New England. This is useful to look at when you are about to venture on a nighttime journey - such as walking the dog.

If you are not in New England, you can check out if your local science museum has a similar guide. The ASTC Travel Passport Program at the Association of Science and Technology Centers is a useful reference to find your local science museum.
