This has been a good year for the space and astronomy enthusiasts. As well as the 25th anniversary in orbit of the Hubble Space Telescope (whose photo of the celebration of the birthday of the star cluster Westerlund 2, leads this entry), there have been several missions that have shed new light on places in the Solar system which, until now, had been almost hidden to us as Pluto or the surface of a comet during its perihelion.
