Space & Astronomy News + Solar System Animations
The “world” wide web is full of sites about astronomy. What makes this one different from the rest?, the reader may ask. A good answer to that question is that it simply is. For once, this website won’t pretend the reader is unintelligent like the most popular websites on astronomy do. Unlike “Them”, Rediscovered Astronomy will treat the reader as an adult. While it will provide the audience with information about astronomy, it will not insult the reader’s smarts. Overall, this website publishes articles on astronomy, space, and aerospace -aeronautics and astronautics alike. We especially focus on news from astronomers, astrophyscists, and space engineers that go far and beyond. It is in this way that our journey began.
A word from the Editor
Ever since I experienced a major solar eclipse in Mexico during my childhood, my interest in astronomy grew. Later in the decade, when I heard the statements of a world renowned astronomer about changes in our solar system, I was to say the least astonished! Unfortunately, his radio interview was not broadcasted on the mainstream media and it is a shame not many had the chance of paying attention. Sadly, most astronomers did not talk about it despite the fact that each one of his predictions have been confirmed and discoveries [which he had predicted] have been announced in the last decade.
Later on, I was never able to track the interview to its original source and copies of it have not been found on the web or anywhere else. So I cannot verify the identity of the astronomer.
But I have to say people at least need to be paying attention to the stars. Look up at the sky and stand in awe. Space is full of surprises.

Just recently the discovery of 2012 VP113 was announced which along with the already known Sedna, point to a very different outer Solar System. Only time will tell, but it is probable that more Sedna-like bodies will be found and perhaps, something bigger.
