The pictures are really good though. Wish it wasn't so much trouble to view them. Guess I'll go to NASA and see them there.

It's ridiculous that I should have to scroll down after every slide change. The screen should stay put where I place it or you should get rid of the advertising at the top of the page. I should be able to click next without having to readjust the page every single time. I won't finish this slide show or watch another one here, that's for sure!

just above the adds and to the right is a collapse button, use it and try the slide show.

This has driven me nuts for years. There are ad's everywhere and no "collapse button" I can find anywhere. Any button I click on just takes me to the advert itself.
