A word of our times: DELUSION -- Being sure something is true in the face of all evidence that says it is not.

Wait, ISO 400K should introduce MASSIVE amounts of noise into the images.
Edit: That said, I fully support the spirit of this project. We need more people to see stars first hand.

So has he brought science into the main stream? There's a difference between pop science and actual science. Clicking "like" on a pretty Hubble telescope photo doesn't confer nerd-herd.

" I have to ask the first question of Mike Brown: is this all about penance for being the assassin of Pluto?

MB: If you were to ask my daughter, she would say yes. She is the one who told me that I need to go find a new planet to make up for everybody hating me about the old ninth planet. I would say no. I would say it would require much more foresight to have known that this was going to go on. "
In a couple of weeks, Caltech astronomers Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin will be staying up late over six autumn nights, scanning part of the sky via the great Subaru telescope in Hawaii. They’ll be looking for something their data tell them is there, but which they have to see with their own eyes: a newfound ninth planet in the solar system.

Congratulations to +European Space Agency, ESA on their first release of science data that will allow better understanding of the origin, structure, and evolutionary history of our Galaxy.
JUST RELEASED: #Gaia first sky map

The first catalogue of more than a billion stars from ESA’s Gaia #satellite was published today – the largest all-sky survey of celestial objects to date.

On its way to assembling the most detailed #3D map ever made of our #MilkyWay galaxy, Gaia has pinned down the precise position on the sky and the brightness of 1142 million stars.

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.
