The Golden Age of telescopes

Check out science reporter Joel Achenbach's article in today's Washington post -- it's a Tigger-like bouncy relishment of this Golden Age of telescopes in which we find ourselves. Good to see NASA's internal science vs. moon/mars budget tension getting publicity. And despite a few factual errors, it's a great example of how to communicate science to the public concisely and enthusiastically, w/o dumbing it down too far.

Why'm I reading the Post at 2 am? I'm clouded out at the telescope, of course! (No one told the weather about that golden age thing.)
