April 30 2016 Astronomy Newsletter


Hi everybody

Here's the latest article from the Astronomy site at BellaOnline.com.

Doodles for Women Astronomers
Since 2013 four outstanding women astronomers have been honored by a Google Doodle. None of the Doodles have had a worldwide reach, but there is a link to each delightful drawing and I've given some biographical details. Read on to meet this stellar quartet.

*Happy Birthday*
The Hubble Space Telescope was deployed on April 25, 1999. It's 26 years old now.

On April 28, there are three astro birthdays.
In 1900 Dutch astronomer Jan Oort was born. The Oort Cloud is named for him. http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art41894.asp
In 1906 Dutch-American astronomer Bart Bok was born. “B Is for Bok Globule”: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art300907.asp
In 1928 American planetary scientist Gene Shoemaker was born.

The first article I wrote for BellaOnline six years ago was “What Herschel Found in a Dark Cloud”: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art66753.asp It referred to ESA's Herschel Space Observatory, an infrared telescope named for William and Caroline Herschel. It lasted beyond its projected date, but the mission finally ended on April 29, 2013 when the coolant ran out.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/323/1/Astronomy or in response to this email message. I welcome your feedback!

Do pass this message along to family and friends who might also be interested. Remember it's free and without obligation.

I wish you clear skies.
