Thanks again to the wonderful advice of Dr Ashen I've given the site a little spruce up, with a lovely banner knocked up by the wise one merely as a proof of concept, but I think it's lovely so I'm using it. Hopefully the new template is easier to read - let me know if you don't like it. Also I'm testing whether this still works in people's RSS feeds and so on, as you may have noticed I've successfully hidden the 'blogspot' from the site's address.
Let me know if you have any problems.
And to make up for all the house keeping updates here is a picture of the Phoenix Lander in the process of Landing on Mars, as seen by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Humanity, being awesome, yesterday.
Humanity sent a piece of moving metal and plastic through the solar system whilst getting another piece of metal and plastic to watch. We are awesome.
