"Professor Goddard does not know the relation between action and reaction and the need to have something better than a vacuum against which to react. He seems to lack the basic knowledge ladled out daily in high schools."
--1921 New York Times editorial about Robert Goddard's revolutionary rocket work.

"Correction: It is now definitely established that a rocket can function in a vacuum. The 'Times' regrets the error."
NY Times, July 1969.

Andromeda Galaxy

Saturday evening I spent the night with Joe Marzullo shooting images in the newly opened space along side of my residence in Whiting.  During the time from setup to closing around 1:30 I had imaged the Andromeda Galaxy thru Astrotech 111edt, 3- 20 minute images 1x1 (1390x1040) combined for color, RGB.  (By the way, the Milky Way can be seen from this site) I combined this image using MaxIm DL/CCD, slight processing, needs some sharpening.  We had a GREAT!
