    A great space for [proto]stars of benevolent luminosity to bask in each other's light while in a celestial hot-tub and no towel [Don't Panic! - Adams RIP] required.

    By acting like a lunatic I was able to exercise some 'influence' on a few brilliant luminaries and they seem unperturbed and welcome my orbitting. Things are now appearing more celestial and I'm relishing being etherial (& elliptical).

    If I had more (but don't)… >2 thumbs (which I'm all [lefty 2]) aimed to the Heavens.
