The mission of Alliance is to promote public awareness, appreciation and education in astronomy and related sciences. Next out are the deep-sky objects — star clusters, nebulae and galaxies, things that appear as "faint fuzzies" without (and sometimes even with) a telescope. ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft is set to complete its incredible mission in a controlled descent to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on 30 September. All of the line drawings were done with Create on my old NeXT machine or with Freehand on a wintel laptop and Macintosh at home.

We see a giant yellow star explode, and it destroys Romulus. So Brunner put astroinformatics to work: He developed an algorithm that allows astronomers to estimate an object’s distance just by analyzing imagery, giving them a much bigger data set for studying the 3-D structure of the universe. “This will be really important with LSST,” he says, “because we won’t be able to get spectra for 99 percent of the objects.” The interdisciplinary marriage between computer science and astronomy has not been fully embraced by either family yet, but that is changing.
