Thankful Countdown to 11/24/2011…

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here are a few things news topics in astrobiology/planetary/climate science that I’m thankful for: 3… The Phobos-Grunt spacecraft has started phoning home! This doesn’t necessarily mean the mission is saved, and it may even be past the point where a fully functional spacecraft could reach Mars, but this is a case where “no news is BAD news.” Things have changed for the better over the last 48 hours or so. 2… Scientists that continue to pursue the....
