Happy New Year

I’m going to be away from a computer for a while, so I wish you all a Happy New Year. To put things in perspective here are a couple pictures from NASA:

the first is of a spiral galaxy showing how small we are in the scheme of things (Credit: NASA/Hubble):

the second is the picture the Apollo 8 crew took of the Earth as they were orbiting the moon 45 years ago (the picture was taken on 12/24–a nice Christmas present to the world; Credit: NASA):
