***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    NASA's Opportunity rover, launched in 2003 to study Mars' surface, spent 15 years exploring more than 28 miles of the planet's surface before finally failing during a planet-wide dust storm last June. This is the last panoramic photo taken by the rover on the rim of Endeavour Crater.<br />

    NGC 1333, a stellar nursery in Perseus. This large molecular cloud lies just 1000 light-years away, and spans 15 light-years. The reflection nebula contains hundreds of newly formed stars (less than a million years old) hidden within the dust cloud.

    No, it's not a photo of a star taken on a hazy night. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of the elliptical galaxy M49 that contains ~200 billion stars that are roughly 6 billion years old. At the center is a supermassive black hole with ~500 million stellar masses. The galaxy lies ~56 million light-years away.

    M15, a 13 billion year old globular cluster, sits just outside the Milky Way at a distance of 35,000 light-years. The cluster is ~200 light-years in diameter. It's one of ~170 globular clusters located around the halo of our galaxy. Globular clusters are dense structures often containing hundreds of thousands of stars.

    If our Sun was located in a globular cluster, our night sky would look a bit like this:

    M11, the Wild Duck Cluster, is located ~6000 light-years from Earth. Astronomers believe the cluster is only 220 million years old. The open cluster contains ~2,900 stars, and is only 20 light-years across, making it one of the most dense open clusters known.

    A wonderful image from Hubble of the central 40 light-years of the M2 globular cluster. M2 is one of the largest globular clusters that sit just outside the Milky Way. It is located ~55,000 light-years from Earth, and contains ~150,000 stars in a total diameter of ~175 light-years. The cluster is believed to be 13 billion years old.

    The first-ever picture of a black hole. This supermassive back hole sits in the center of M87, a massive elliptical galaxy containing several trillion stars in the Virgo galaxy cluster 55 million light-years away. The mass of the back hole is 6.5 billion times that of our Sun. The bright ring is a disk of gas that orbits the black hole. As the gas orbits at very high speed, friction causes the gas to heat to extremely high temperatures.

    ESO's telescopes (where I work) where used to generate a large percentage of the data which photographed the first black hole.

    The two side boosters from SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket prepare to land back at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on April 11, 2019, after successfully launching a 6000 kg Arabsat-6A communications satellite into orbit. The center booster of the three booster rocket successfully landed shortly after on a drone ship in the Atlantic.
