Space - the Final Frontier. The Black. The Intergalactic Highway. The Galactic Empire. Whether you prefer Space Pirates, Space Cowpersons, Space Officers, or Space Princesses, there's a sci-fi for that.

In our view, that doesn't make them any less valuable to astronomers studying them, which is the whole point. It also makes them way better eye-candy for the rest of us to gape at, so we're just going to be thankful for it, rather than nitpicky.Read More
