Google has partnered up with 19 national research institutions to developpotent software to process the estimated 30 terabytes of astronomy imagery…that will stream nightly from the newly built Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, or LSST, slated to go online in 2013“. 

Can you imagine having the cosmos at your fingertips and browsing via one of the most powerful terra based telescopes in existence?  If that’s not the very definition of a nerdgasm, I don’t know what it.
