Overwhelming and beautiful. May 6, 2013 Posted by Mookie
Today's Elemeccan revelation is based very much on the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field. For those who don't know what that is, the Hubble telescope focused on a very small portion of the cosmos, where no light had been detected by previous telescopes. After a series of very long exposures, it revealed the light of ten thousand galaxies. Not individual stars. Ten thousand collections of billions of stars.

Existence is awesome, in the very grandest sense of the word.

There's going to be a slight change in the end date for the comic. I've been saying for awhile that I wanted to close the comic on or before May 21st of this year, which would be its eleventh anniversary. But, after some last minute counting, I determined that if I were to end the comic on May 24th instead, I would go over my self-imposed deadline but end on exactly three thousand comics produced.

So I'm going to do that, because I think that's awesome.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
