    I'd love to do a degree in Astronomy, but the job prospects aren't all that great.

    The saddest thing about this is that the photographer's father died during the exposure, and he said "I can make out the position of the sun on the day my dad died"

    :(

    tangentially related to astronomy, but still a fun read
    If this doesn't blow your socks off, then Hogan, who has just been appointed director of Fermilab's Center for Particle Astrophysics, has an even bigger shock in store: "If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram."
    This is good news for anyone trying to probe the smallest unit of space-time. "Contrary to all expectations, it brings its microscopic quantum structure within reach of current experiments," says Hogan. So while the Planck length is too small for experiments to detect, the holographic "projection" of that graininess could be much, much larger, at around 10-16 metres. "If you lived inside a hologram, you could tell by measuring the blurring," he says.
