Hi Justlooking, great handle :)

I'm 50 this year but I did approximately 94.4762% of my astronomy learning as a boy so I only expend mental effort in keeping up with new stuff.

The stars and planets haven't changed but our technology has bounded forwards. We're all learning something new. You'll soon catch up :D
