Buddies in Celestial Studies

Setting: an observatory
Personae: two cosmologists

Who do you think you are bro, Tycho Brahe?

Well, technically you could say that, I was raised by my uncle!

Smart as*! Anyway, do you have any scruples about using the Hubble image?

Whatever suits you.

I think it looks cool.

If I’m Tycho, then I guess that makes you Anders Vedel – so pardon me, but your kinda cool is questionable.

I may be your tutor, and a few years older than you, but I try to listen, don’t I? I just can’t imagine what else could look better than that nebulae!

You shouldn’t let the confines of exploration limit you, my friend. Let your imagination free you!

I’m perfectly capable and willing to learn a thing or two, but don’t waste my time, kid. This better be good!

See, I’m thinking of taking more of a Kepler type of approach, we’ll need to do a bit more than just observing and actually spend more time analysing. The image is good, and we should still use that, but if we can add our own twist to it, it’ll make for a better presentation. We should just take the raw and turn it into a relevant and useful form! That’s really all there is to magic!

    An amusing dialogue, Heath, with some impressive characters called to mind. Interesting last couple of sentences. 🙂

    I think you know my style well by now, Millie… I just can’t help myself… some characters just seem to reside somewhere in the back of my head and they often pop up when I’m pondering a particular subject which may be somewhat related to them 🙂

  3. More analysis- yes, and let it be real analysis, not just “informed opinion”.
