visionsoftheuniverseThis event made me think, once again, about how images from space are presented: what orientation to give them, what colours to use to augment those not visible to the human eye? This is not a neutral process.

I would love it if someone wanted to attend and comment on the above issues for Space Policy....!

But none can deny that the images that come out are just stunning.

Event in Greenwich--I think it's about 8 pounds to enter. Website here
