Nice, very nice

I've always wanted to see a greater implication of big internet compagny into the astronomical research and it seems I will get to see this. According to this article on CNN google is going to work with astronomer in the futur LSST (Large Synoptic Survey Telescope) and it should provide the world with terabytes of astronomical data that the public will be able to access. That should be really nice for astronomy and provide a wide ranging outreach unpossible before.

All told this is very nice, much more interesting then Boisclair's much anticipated departure from the PQ leadership (which I'm not gonna comment about you probably already know what I think of the men and his decision to quit didn't change it.)
