Elizabeth is a professional belly dancer, a flaky computer scientist, and a returned Peace Corps volunteer. She lives in Georgia (the state of the U.S., not the country) but is nonetheless somehow not a combination of stereotypes from Gone with the Wind and Deliverance. Her personal blog is Coffeefied. Operafied. Fluffified. Beglittered.

    The Magellanic Clouds are gorgeous- did you know they contain the largest stars that have ever been discovered? Look up R136a and the Doradus Nebula!

    I find the new human discovery fascinating too- one minor point though- Elephants also grieve and bury their dead and return to the grave sites year after year
