New items on the website: Rover update and [email protected]

I just wanted to point out a couple of new items on the website. A. J. S. Rayl has posted another of her lengthy and very detailed updates on the status of both Mars Exploration Rovers.

And there are two items of note on [email protected]: as Amir Alexander writes, scanning of the aerogel collector has begun at Johnson Space Center. This is the necessary step required before all of you who signed up can begin work on the [email protected] project. Also, today's Planetary Radio features an interview with Stardust science team member Andrew Westphal, who's coordinating the [email protected] project.

And now to try to make some sense of my 15 pages of notes from today's VEXAG meeting. Stay tuned...

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?
