Re: Cover Picture

I agree! The cover pic is a beauty. The nebula--if that's what it is--appears to be shaped like a human heart.<br><br>Donald
A really good story can compensate for less-than-brilliant writing, but brilliant writing will not save a bad story.

Re: Cover Picture

The photo is of light echoes from a supernova remnant called Cassiopeia A. The image is a composite of X-ray, optical, and infrared light exposures that have been digitally combined.<br><br>Like most of the Aphelion covers, the image was taken from NASA's Astronomy Photos archives.

Re: Cover Picture

Yep, it's specky all right. Would make a good poster, especially for the highlighted authors!
