• The Countdown 8/1/2011

    Just finished an interesting suite of model runs before typing this up quickly and heading to bed…

    3… Mark your calendars! AbSciCon 2012 will be held April 16-20, 2012 in Atlanta, GA….

    2… SpaceX has its eyes set on Mars. Compelling vision, to be sure. But let’s get our astronauts safely to the ISS and home again first, OK?…

    1… That’s no moon…. The Dawn team released stunning photos of Vesta today… there will be some excellent science coming out of them, but for now I just want to soak in their grandeur and beauty….

    LAUNCH!
