I'm back from Moscow. It was a very interesting experience. I'll try to post some photos and maybe some more on the trip later but I've got a week's worth of email to work through so it probably won't happen right away.
The first news I came across after getting home (and back online) was that the Advanced Camera for Surveys onboard Hubble has been down since the 19th. ACS is an amazing instrument and I sure hope they can get it back up soon.
