    Lots of astrobiology/planetary news lately…

    3… Scientists just discovered a new moon orbiting the dwarf planet Pluto.

    2… I know some of you have been nervous about rumored cuts to the NASA’s Astrobiology Program. Well, late last week the program announced their plan for the next few years in an email to PI’s (which was subsequently passed on to Space.com). There’s really good news here: the plan is to make selections each of the next two years, and into the forseeable future.

    1… More NASA Astrobiology news! The due dates for the next NAI proposals were announced today. Put your teams together (or join one) by January 31. Details here.

    … LAUNCH!
