APOD: APOD is 25 Years Old Today (2020 Jun 16)

Post by APOD Robot » Tue Jun 16, 2020 4:05 am

Image APOD is 25 Years Old Today

Explanation: Welcome to the quadranscentennial year of the Astronomy Picture of the Day. Perhaps a source of consistency for some, APOD is still here. To help celebrate APOD's Silver Anniversary, some of APOD's TVAoTaSMD have recorded a birthday greeting and thanks to APOD's readership in today's featured video. Many have also highlighted a few of their favorite APOD images. In collaboration with NASA through APOD, these and other volunteers help to inform the world, in most major world languages and over most major media platforms, of NASA and humanity's growing knowledge, active exploration, and inspiring visualizations of the amazing astronomical universe in which we live. APOD's founders (still alive!) would also like to offer a sincere thank you -- not only to our TVAoTaSMD -- but to APOD's readership for continued interest, support, and many gracious communications over the years.

Without eyes we cannot see. Without maps travel is perilous. This gives us the two entangled. May it become a centanarian fixture for humanity.

Heartiest congratulations to APOD for completing 25 years as a shining example of everything that is good about the internet. However, I think it's a year late in welcoming the quadranscentennial year, given that today is the start of the 26th year... Today is, however, the quadranscentennial (25th) anniversary!

Happy 25th Birthday. I visit APOD most days. Here is the first APOD picture I saved from back October, 2002 (if my notes are correct). Over a hundred more since then.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday
As a college student back in the '80's I was inspired by my astronomy professor. I check apod website first thing every day thanks to him, and you.
Keep up the good work!

The APOD image of Mars from July 16, 1995 got me hooked. Until I got flatscreen monitors, it was my background image at work and at home.
Thank you!
