Hi Gang,

Astronomers over at the Very Large Telescope or VLT have discovered an amazing binary star system. The two stars are so close together that they actually touch! This is going to lead to a couple of possible astronomical delights. Supernova or black hole are just two of the possibilities for this system out in the Tarantula Nebula. Take a look at the news release here http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1540/?lang

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
