The University of Toronto is trying to sell of the land that the observatory sits on. :censored:

The Royal Ontario Museum used to have a planetarium, but now it is mothballed and they are trying to put up a 45 storey condo there.

I think video games and Star Trek Next Generation killed interest for a lot of young 'uns for astronomy. How's that for irony? I mean, who wants to crawl to Mercury when Captain Picard has been half-way across the galaxy and back!

I used to be a big astronomy freak. I once fancied myself to be an astrophysicist one day (now I can barely spell it!), until I realized in grade 12 calculus that my math stank to high hell. Still, one of my class mates is a big shot physicist/lawyer working in California, and another of my buddies is a hot shot SF writer.

Sigh, if only I had kept up my studies, kept my willy in my pants and stayed in university.

I so wish I could see planets in space! I love this stuff... I think it's beautiful. I just wish there were color images!

I love anything to do with astronomy :) Something about space and other planets fascinates me and it appears I'm not the only one on here who thinks that way. :)
