Oh, how I love The Bad Astronomer, let me count the ways.
His tweet alerted me to the first images to come back from Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Gorgeous images they are, with my favorite being of Andromeda. I mean, is this not a stunning image?
I love it so much it’s now the background on both my Twitter page and my phone.
Even more exciting for me – I know some of the people who worked on WISE. I can look at its beautiful images and take pride that people I know were responsible for them.
That is really the ultimate coolness.
