APOD is edited by two of the cooooolest people on the planet: Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell. Not only are they very very cool, they are also┬áincredibly nice, extremely smart (wise, too, which is even better), kind and generous, knowledgeable about all kinds of things, and funny, shoot-milk-out-your-nose funny. Oh, and attractive, too! With Robert’s boyish good looks and Jerry’s movie-star handsomeness, their rockin’ coolness and their winning personalities, I don’t know how they stay so modest, but they do, which is why one of the (current, perhaps shortly former) Asterisk volunteers is writing this — they were too modest to do so.

(I love this job!)
