Now it can be told! This was approved for funding at the end of 2008, but we didn't feel we could say anything until it was actually happening, which only started after the Hubble data started to come in. Still more details in Pamela's blog post any minute now.

Surely a great scientific achievement!
Oh let me just a moment stay
where time is not and angels play the paeans of the galaxies;
then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!

OK, my pleasure. And thinking ahead I see the next steps: webcomic > movie > Oscar.  :D Ha, yes, I'm daydreaming.

I regret to announce I have already planned a geeky sequence of some of the science bit - which will probably not make it to an Oscar.

Only if I can play my own part there as well and still be in the directers/editors team. ;D

NB At this point the discussion turned to possible meet-ups around the US, with certain people getting more and more ambitious. I really hope it happens and am even wondering if there is time to get a visa . . . See here for meet-up details ;D
