Hubble Telescope
Pillars of Creation.jpg
Since its launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has captured half a million images – in black and white. Zoltan Levay of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, reveals how his team creates the spectacular colour pictures we know. He also explains how the finished images are interpreted to unlock the secrets of vast galactic clouds of dust and gas, and tell the story of the birth and death of stars.

Curiosity touches down on Mars!
Neil Armstrong
Curiosity
On July 20, 1969, I was minutes away from my 11th birthday as I watched the black and white grainy transmission from Tranquility Base on the Moon on our television set. I was both desparately trying to stay awake and at the same time hoping that the actual stepping on to the Moon by Neil Armstrong would be delayed so that it would occur on my birthday. By minutes he walked onto the Moon on July 20th. I can only be content knowing that somewhere on Earth it was already July 21st!
There will never be another first like this one. It was not just the first walk on the Moon, it was the first walk by Homo sapien sapien on another world! To paraphrase Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, Neil Armstrong now belongs to the stars. Godspeed Neil!

NASA -Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon during the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, has died, following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures. He was 82. 
Armstrong's words "That is one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," spoken on July 20, 1969, as he became the first person ever to step onto another planetary body, instantly became a part of history.

THE GUARDIAN--This week we've assembled a panel of experts to feed your appetite for information about Nasa's new star, the Mars Curiosity rover.

The plucky robot landed on the red planet at 6:14am UK time and immediately sent back images of its surroundings. Guardian science correspondent Ian Sampletakes us through the complex landing procedure; planetary scientist Geraint Jones from University College London tells us what it's like to be in the control room back on Earth when your lander reaches another planet; and our new astronomy blogger, Stuart Clark, walks us through Curiosity's scientific goals.

Persistance and Determination
 
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge
30th president of US (1872 - 1933)
