Throughout the month of March, Robert Gendler's astrophotographs are on display at Grumpy Bert gallery in Brooklyn.

NEW YORK -- An astrophotographer who has snapped images of the cosmos from a driveway in Connecticut is taking center stage in a Brooklyn space art exhibit.

Robert Gendler has loved snapping pictures of the night sky for years. What started off as a vague childhood interest in the cosmos has become a hobby that Gendler has carried with him through most of his adult life.

"I picked it up as a hobby in Connecticut and started taking pictures," Gendler said. "It became a real passion."

Gendler's work is being presented here at the Grumpy Bert gallery in a show entitled "The Universe in Color." His work went on display this month and will remain on the gallery's walls until Sunday (March 31). Usually, his photos have a home in the hospital where Gendler works as a radiologist.

"I have a passion for the visual," Gendler said of his hobby and chosen profession.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
