A Universe Abounding in Galaxies

This is the International Year of Astronomy, and as I heard on the news this morning, we all get to participate in a truly beautiful astrophysical project. When I first saw pictures of galaxies, whose size is unimaginable and whose shapes are as diverse as people’s fingerprints, I wanted to know more. But most of all, I wanted to look at those photographs. I even put up some of them in my first place overseas, as a reminder that space is vaster than I can imagine, and that the dimensions of my life and all its content, including the “problems”, are negligible compared to what is going on “out there”. Let’s check out the web site, look at these objects and enjoy the Universe!
