In which I win a Prize

Telescope
In particular, the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronomical Society, Division for Planetary Sciences.

The citation can be found here...

They get the name of one of my books wrong, it is Turn LEFT at Orion, but then you shouldn't believe half of the nice things they say about me, either...

I am embarrassed to admit how pleased I am!

Congrats! Clearly these people are not Bugs Bunny fans or their brains would have defaulted to "turn LEFT at..."

Congrats
When they weave a prayer rug, they always weave in a deliberate mistake, so that while you are at prayer you will be reminded that only Allah is perfect.

Following your lead, I updated the Sagan Medal entry.

Say, the other medal winners are notable enough to deserve their own entries. But I'm not going to remedy that today.

Billions and billions of congratulations!

(I expected, in this crowd, to be spared the making of this joke. The sentiment, however, is entirely sincere.)

(This is one of the canonical views of the Chicago skyline, but fewer people probably know that it's the view from the Adler Planetarium, making it extra appropriate here.)
