Very well deserved. Every time you post I'm newly thrilled by that image, made possible by an almost impossible building which in itself embodies an astronomical theme given a new astronomical twist by clever photography. I hope the musician understands all the layers. Is the music any good? Heck, I may buy it for the cover anyhow.

ESA published Emily's collage of asteroids and comet nuclei on its web page "Call for media: reacting to the threat of asteroid impacts."

Link to Image page

Congrats to Emily. smile.gif

I see Ted Stryk's name through the credits as well.

You can actually listen to snippets of the music here on the record label page of the CD:

As to whether Mr. Minasi understands all the layers of the image. Well, he is from Rome, I believe, and would then know the Pantheon very well.

Wether you fancy Carl Sagan or not here's something where several UMSFers are involved:

Being behind the curtains on this I am really proud to see how people put their hearts into it... smile.gif
Stu, Nick, Lyford...thank you for everything!

Wow! Nick and Stu... such marvelous writing. And Ustrax (or should I say, Tatoo) thanks for telling me about "zee plane, zee plane"! smile.gif

I never would have seen it if you hadn't pointed it out to me.

Thanks, man! (insert blush emoticon here.) All kudos to Rui & the Kepler project for providing the opportunity; it's a humbling thing, was very honored.

But I'm the pollywog among some big frogs indeed in this pond. Lyford's score is not only professional in its quality, but it hits all the right notes in your heart...haunting, beautiful.

Stu's story is...God, please, just read it, everybody. I still see the images he wove, and won't ever forget them.

Thanks, guys. I am quite pleased with how that story turned out. smile.gif

And Nick, don't you dare put yourself down like that. Your essay is extremely personal and deep, deep from the heart, which makes it a fine piece of writing.

As for Lyford's music, well, it's now on my phone and I'm looking forward to listening to it next time I go up to the castle to stargaze.

A great story, Stu! I guessed the twist kinda quickly, but even so!
Just a minor correction though: 51 Pegasi b (the first found orbiting a normal star) was discovered in 1995, a year before his death, so I'm sure Carl knew about extrasolar planets.
But that's a tiny nitpick!

Yeah, bit of a clue the story being part of celebrations of Carl Sagan's life, hard to get around that! laugh.gif

Good point on the 51 Peg date, that totally slipped by me. Put it down to "artistic licence" wink.gif
