National Geographic's elegant infographic displays 50 years of space exploration in a colorful map of our planetary neighbors.

The "Fifty Years of Exploration" map, created by Sean McNaughton and Samuel Velasco for National Geographic, outlines humanity's journeys into space, starting from the early failed mission to Mars and Venus to the current flight of New Horizons.

Which reminds me, I was going to mention Time's publication of Great Discoveries : Explorations that Changed History. Some really great stuff in there. I'll have to see if I can come up with a link.

That is incredibly cool. Thanks for posting, Toff :)

Incidentally, I always feel slightly guilty when I omit the accent over your O ... is there a keyboard combination I can use to put the right o in?

I could teach you to type an ö, but instead I will teach you to just to copy'n'paste right off the screen whenever you need to duplicate some weird word you see. Works like a charm for every accent you see!

Well, duh. I should have thought of that. Thanks :) /facepalm

ö > Hold alt and type 0246 then release alt.

Find out more of these combos by looking at your "Character Map" (Start > Accessories > System Tools. under windows. You're on your own for other OSs)
