• Yesterday’s Countdown today…

    I was wiped last night and couldn’t write. Here are a few things from the last two days to take note of:

    3… RNA tagging is here! Some brilliant folks figured out how to make videos of RNA movements in the cell, with the details published in this week’s issue of Science. I’m sure you’ll be seeing some astrobiological applications of this work over the next decade.

    2… Science also gives the scoop on how the MSL team chose Gale Crater as the landing spot for Curiosity…

    1… MSL and Mars are also featured in a segment of today’s Science Friday episode, along with Earth Trojan asteroids, and the upcoming Juno mission. If you’re missing it now, catch the podcast afterwards!

    LAUNCH!
