Countdown to 11/23/11


4. As Shawn mentioned yesterday, neutrinos have once again made headlines recently where the OPERA collaboration has verified their measurement using a different beam and some groups have refuted their claims (surprise!). Here are 158 papers debating this issue.

2. In other news, humans on the other side of the world are shipping a robotic lab to Mars this weekend! You can track the shipment on this website: http://marsprogram.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/

1. Call for abstracts now open for AbSciCon 2012. The abstract submission deadline is Jan 31. Here is a list of all the sessions.

I wonder why it isn’t simply called Astrobiology Conference.
