Kudos to the METRO

Back in January I reported on the shoddy journalism that produced two articles in the Daily Mail and the METRO newspapers. Both articles referred to a recent image from ESA's Herschel Space Observatory as being from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. I was particularly frustrated by the one in the METRO because they generally do a pretty good job of covering space/astronomy news.

I'm pleased to say that, following my email to them, the METRO have corrected their online article. They even added that some of the Herschel image was taken with ESA's XMM.

Well done METRO.
