And so endeth the Year of Astronomy... tomorrow we usher in The International Year of BioDiversity!
I'd like to give a big shout-out to all my Google followers, Twitterati, Myspace and Facebook friends, regular readers and commenters... and even the casual e-mailers who simply ask questions about studies, wondering if it's the right choice for them. I'm so grateful to everyone who has been supportive of my blog and the NASA programs in general!
It's been an amazing year writing about new studies, meeting new subjects and keeping up with all the exciting news about space exploration in 2009.
Also a very special thank you to all the busy contest entrants who were very instrumental in helping Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts this winter, resulting in more readers, increased rankings and many new blog reviews that tell directory readers we have news here at Pillow Astronaut worth following!
The winner of the Apollo 40th Anniversary T-shirt, Yeşim Moğulkoç of Ankara, Turkey, sent me a beautiful picture of her wearing her Christmas present. Glad you like your prize, Yeşim! You sure look great in it! Happy New Year everyone...
