This is great information and am very happy that you posted this. I realize that we live in a multi demensional world (3-D). Being a Draftsman I work
in 3 dimensoins all the time and it ocured to me that most telescopes look in the northern hemispher, not to many in the south that i know of.
Countries like Africa, South America, so on do not have them in the numbers we have in the northern hemisphier, and yes the space telescopes can see
in both, but we are talking about the majority of them that are actualy diligently studied are in the north. This leaves a huge % of the sky
Another thing stuck out as I read this thread, How many times have you heard of an astronomer talk about stars traveling towards or away from us?
Most I ever hear about are their properties, and besides if one wer to be comming our direction at first wouldn't it look as if it wer stationary, or
only seeming to creep up slowly? Then as it aproched it's speed would increase as gravity took over, besides we know Galxies collide all the time. Is
it so far fetched to think that stars can also?
Great info and the fact this is such an old article makes it even better..You go Grandpa!
