As taxpayers we finance the most advanced look into the cosmos ever conceived. We share the results of this exploration/adventure with ease. This just might be the best bargain we ever got.

I have been checking the site on a weekly basis and have been using the pictures as rotating desktop wallpapers.

I have been looking at APOD at least 10 years. In the late 80's, I was introduced to the night skies when I took a job in far west Texas and had the opportunity to visit McDonald Observatory on numerous occasions. In 2001, I was given a new teaching assigment and subsquently discovered APOD which became my "morning coffee". Due to the nature of my teaching assignment, I was able to use APOD's pictures with my students as a means encouraging science.

To this day, APOD is still part of my daily routine. The heavens are magnificient and thank you all for sharing it with the public.

I've been following APOD for about 5 years ever since I discovered it! I've shown it to a number people at work and they have been wowed by the images
shown on a daily basis. My father introduced to astronomy at lectures at the University of Toronto when I was a kid.
He would have loved this site!

Images from space are some of the very few places of peace, far above and hopefully forever divorced from the crazy space we inhabit. For a few moments, every day for at least ten years, ... Thanks for spending tax dollars in a way that doesn't promote divisiveness and violence.
