HELLO FOLKS. My apologies for the lack of updates on SpaceInfo.com.au in recent weeks, but your editor has been away conducting astronomy lectures aboard a cruise ship (the wonderful m/s Oosterdam, of the Holland America Line) on a journey to various tropical paradises scattered throughout the Pacific Ocean. Having now reluctantly returned to reality, it’ll be back to normal with SpaceInfo.
Lots of people aboard the Oosterdam asked me where I got all the incredible images of space that I showed during my lectures, and I promised to post some links. So here we go.

There are other telescopes up in space too – here are a few:
And then there are all the wonderful ground-based observatories — here’s a small selection:
For keeping an eye on the Sun and solar activity, try these sites:
Here are links to some of the spacecraft missions that are exploring the planets of our Solar System:
My thanks to everyone aboard the m/s Oosterdam, both crew and passengers, for making the journey so enjoyable and fulfilling.
