Hubble and Voorwerpjes!
« on: June 06, 2011, 06:05:47 pm »
This just in - I'm still pumping my fist in the air:

"We are pleased to inform you that your Hubble Space Telescope Cycle 19 proposal

   Title:  Giant Ionized Clouds Around Local AGN - Obscuration and
           History"

That is, detailed Hubble imaging of some of the most promising Voorwerpjes selected by Zooites and confirmed with our spectra.
Twenty-one orbits in all.


More details when I calm down! The Zoo rules!

21 orbits is a lot. And the referee's comments are wonderful - for once noting that this is a high risk/high reward proposal and yet going for it anyway.

Bill - should we post the proposal? Thank you all so much for your part in making this happen!
