You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Pluto Fan Club

A nice page on the Oliebollen site that offers a “Pluto Fan Club” to kids and adults who care enough to step up to bat for the little dwarf. The protest culminates in a Facebook page where you can join other dissenting opinions online. There is also this children’s activity for a Solar System mobile which I have seen first-hand.

    Kudos to the organizers–this is terrific, a chance for kids to lend their voices to the cause of reinstating Pluto’s planet status. It’s great knowing there are people making sure that everyone, child and adult, gets the chance to learn about the planet Pluto and know that there are many people around the world, including professional astronomers, who still view Pluto as a planet.

    Thanks so much for the nice post! Its great to find fun & interesting sites like Wanderingspace.net!

    One correction - the link you provide to the mobile project takes you to a different one. The project for kids that we offer can be downloaded from the page http://www.oliebollen.com/funstuff/index.html

    Great Page.
    Being from Pluto it’s really refreshing to know that some earthlings are with us! We are really upset about the arrogant decision of your Scientists and governments to demote us.
    As far as were concerned Earth is a Minor Planet! (call that an orbit!) and ask anyone from Neptune (last time I was there, hardly anyone knew where earth was!) Anyway thanks for your support.
