Top of the Heap!

Galilean Telescope, 1661
We were all witness to Monday's Riddle, and Lizzy's review of Sleuth or Dare by Kim Harrington cracked open the case. Friday, we have something fun in store, and Saturday, we'll witness your thoughts on The DMS Wants to Know. Today, we thought it would be fun to shout out to something that we've been able to witness by just living in the world right now!

This week's top of the heap: Amazing space / cool telescope technology

Fairday and Lizzy: Here's to the awe inspiring space that surrounds our world, and thanks to the many advancements in technology that have given us the insight to know that we are a part of it all! 

We've come a long way! Gran Telescopio Canarias







Witness the amazing expansion of our universe!

  7. I love seeing pictures from space. It's crazy to see all the color and shapes that make up stars. They have their own landscape that look like mountains, clouds, or sometimes animals. Great post (:
