Astronomy Winner

Today the Royal Observatory Greenwich in London opened Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2012, which runs until February 2013, admission free (CLICK). The best of over 800 entries to this year's competition are on display and they are stunning. Shown is the overall winner, also the winner of the Deep Space category, Martin Pugh's terrific photo of M51 The Whirlpool Galaxy consuming its neighbouring galaxy like some gigantic amoeba. BBC News has posted an excellent video by Paul Kerley with voiceovers by two of the judges (CLICK). All religious nutters who believe in some humanoid god creating the world - especially those lunatics rioting or killing in purported defence of their faith - should be made to watch this video to see how infinitesimally small we are in the vastness of the cosmos.
