An art history major in college, I decided to take astronomy to fulfill the science requirement. The first class was fun, the second a nightmare of equations. "You can drop out," my roommate promptly informed me. I gratefully and immediately re-registered for a geography course in the history of urban transportation which was marvelous. The above new Hubble photo is why I love astronomy. It's stunningly beautiful, and humbling, and looks like a Michelangelo.
