For those of you who get Universe Today by email, you’ll notice this is the 1000th issue of the newsletter. 1000 issues. Wow. That’s several hours a day of my life for nearly 6 years. Here’s a link to the first edition of Universe Today, which went out to about 10 of my closest friends (aka “Test Subjects”). And here’s a link to what the website looked like early on.
There have been a few design changes and technology upgrades over the last 6 years, but I’ve really tried to keep Universe Today faithful to its original goal: encapsulating the major events in space and astronomy in a consistent, easily digestible format. And as long as I’m around, that will always be the case.
For the longest time, it was a one-man effort, but that’s changing now. I’ve got lots of help these days. From the moderators and community support team in the forum, to the freelance writers contributing stories.
A big thanks to all 27,000 subscribers. Your feedback, friendship and emails make it all worth while.
Here’s to another 1,000!
P.S. Yes, that’s another shameless picture of Chloe and Logan. Here’s a bigger version.
