Where Are We? In the Universe, That Is?

If you're like me, then the first thing you do when you enter a mall is look for the map.  I don't care if I've been to that mall 500 times, I need to know where all the stores are!

Getting a taste of fall-like weather

What Does a Black Hole Look Like? NASA Took a Pic!

Beam me up, Scotty, I thought they were kidding about "black holes."  Not true.  They are real, and NASA has taken a picture of one.
