And is there a chance that someone might put in that option soon?

Astronomy is still in beta. No SE sites are added to the Data Explorer or the Data Dump until they come out of beta.

Ok, how long after they leave beta before they show up? One of my users is really curious to run his own queries. –  jcolebrand Oct 4 '11 at 3:26
    
@jcolebrand It shouldn't be long. Paraphrasing Jeff, new sites aren't added until there's a significant amount of data to work with, but Bicycles and DBA should be the next two in line. –  Bill the Lizard Oct 4 '11 at 11:23
    
Merci. I told him "just give it another 6 weeks, we just got out of beta" and so that would seem to be in line. –  jcolebrand Oct 4 '11 at 15:09

Astronomy is still a beta site, and that is the reason why there is not yet an option for it in Data Explorer. It will eventually added as option, once the site is in beta phase after X days; this is what happened with other sites.
I guess they want to first be sure there is enough useful information, or the site is going to pass the beta phase.
