Since the dawn of the Internet, there have been countless things that have come and gone. To some of them, we can easily say good riddance (flashing rainbow icons? the used-to-death phrase of the "information superhighway"?)
In other words, not many vestiges of the Internet circa 1996 remain, but one important one does: the Webby awards. Presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, the Webbies are still one of the most prestigious digital awards around.
Suffice it say, we were thrilled to hear that "Chandra's Hot Universe: Exploring the X-ray Universe" has been selected as an official honoree in the Technology category for the 14th Annual Webby Awards. There were nearly 10,000 entries from all 50 states and over 60 countries. Thanks to the Webbies for acknowledging Chandra — it's one remnant from the 90s that we're certainly not embarrassed about.
