My congrats to the Herschel and Planck spacecraft teams for the successful launch of their missions! With all the news about Hubble right now, it's easy to let it slip by, but these are very ambitious missions run by the European Space Agency, and will contribute mightily to our knowledge of the Universe, how it got started, and what's in it now.

More astronomy, more science! I'm all for that.
