Re: 68K/PPC compatible Sierra-Adventures on classic macs

I am not familiar with old Macs, so I probably will not be of much help. Are the SQ1 and LSL1 the AGI or SCI versions? Is there any kind of setup program?

Re: We finally took a photo of a black hole

That sounds like more than a little tyrannical of a point of view to have to me. Not directed at you per se, but to those that pontificate on what they know little of. It has led to some outrageous conspiracy theories, some of which present a huge danger like the antivax movement that is literally ...

I was going to post the first image. If I had done what she had just done I would be giggling, too. A scientist is one who never loses their childlike sense of wonder.

Easy fix. Fly to London, Canada - meet up with DPX and Maia while you're there (Canada's such a small little country, I am sure they're close!) - then tour the US and meet those of us that live in the states!
