PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE
One of the most powerful ways to keep our work on track and focused is to look up and beyond our immediate day-to-day activities. In keeping with the long weekend holiday here in US, this offers some interesting, and thought provoking, links you might like to check from time to time -- when you need a break and there's no holiday to fall back on.
Wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page is a huge undertaking. It's a free worldwide encyclopedia with a twist. This encyclopedia allows everyone to join in the fun of creating a book of common knowledge. It encourages readers to review, add to and edit information available in just about any topic you can imagine. If you see something that isn't exactly correct or complete -- you can now do something about it.
That telescope NASA dropped off in space in 1990 continues to work -- and, we are privy to some of the most awe-inspiring views of the universe. When work gets out of hand, you might want to take a step back and take a peek at the bigger picture:

NOTE: This link died some time ago but Linda Cormick recommended this one to replace it: http://www.frontiermultimedia.com/deepspace.htm You really must check it out. It's spectacular!! Thank you Linda.
http://hubblesite.org/gallery/ A pictorial "tour" of our universe through Hubble's eye, the Gallery presents myriad stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae, and strange celestial phenomena in full color and exquisite detail.
http://heritage.stsci.edu/ A brand new picture is released each month.
Have a great rest of the holiday!!
