    Knowing that space tastes like summer fruits is definitely no bad thing!
    Thank you very much, and I’m glad you enjoy reading what I write. Feel free to stop by anytime… :)

    Haha… Actually, a similar thing happened to me at first. I didn’t notice the bio because I was so impressed with the picture.
    It helps to know the background though — it really adds to some of the portraits. Jocelyn Bell-Burnell, for instance!

    Anytime. I thought they were so brilliant, I couldn’t not post the link!

    Those are some great shots, but I had no idea who everyone was and was wishing there was a bio or something about each person.
    Then when I got to the last picture I saw the bio on the side. >_<

  5. Those are amazing. I love it! Thanks for sharing.
