Viva Hubble!

As if we need another reason to FIESTA down here in San Antonio, let's all hoist a pint to the Hubble telescope - it's 18 years old today!

To help celebrate Wired Magazine has posted an amazing slide show of some of our beloved Hubble's shots from deep space like this one of the ESO 99-4, above.

"ESO 99-4 is a galaxy with an unusual shape that is probably the remnant of an earlier merger process that has deformed it. ESO 99-4 lies in the constellation of Triangulum Australe, the Southern Triangle, about 400 million light-years away."

That's Right,

Go Spurs!
