Book Update and Some Ramblings

The book is finished – well except for reviewing the proof copy sometime this week.  Hopefully everything will check out okay and the book will be available in the next week or so.  It has turned out to be a lot more work than I had imagined!  I’m looking forward to getting back to doing some writing, instead of editing, formatting, and tweaking the cover graphics.

In between real work, and working on the book, I’ve tried to keep up with the latest developments in space and astronomy news.  I’m just amazed at the images that keep popping up from the rejuvenated Hubble, the Spitzer telescope, Chandra, and now the marvelous images from WISE and Kepler, among others!  If you have any interest in what is out there in the cosmos, it’s a great time to be alive.  The pictures that are coming back from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and Cassini are amazing! And, there is more to come with the soon to be launched James Webb Space Telescope, and the Mars Science Laboratory- Curiosity.

With all this information flooding in, there is bound to be some amazing discoveries about the Universe we live in.  Can’t wait!

Till next time,

RC Davison
