• Belated Countdown 7/14/2011

    I watched Harry Potter Part VII Part 2 last night, and didn’t get home until nearly 3. So I’m doing the countdown now…

    3… JWST will need extra cash to launch by 2018. Needless to say, given the current plans to cancel the telescope in the House, this will be difficult to come by.

    2… Forests are even more important that previously thought in taking up atmospheric carbon, according to a recent report in Science.

    1… Dawn is scheduled to enter into orbit around Vesta late tonight. More on Dawn and Vesta soon, as this will be next week’s “mission of the week” here at PaleBlue.blog. (And yes… I realize we haven’t done that feature in a while.)

    …. LAUNCH!
