New stuff on the website

I've just (belatedly) posted a new entry from Tyler Nordgren's "Stars Above, Earth Below" odyssey through America's national parks; this one is from Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Maine.

Also posted today was Lou Friedman's reflections on the significance of the space age.

Don't forget to enter this week's Mars trivia contest.Planetary Radio this week features Ben Shelef talking about space elevators, and me talking about the Division of Planetary Sciences meeting. I'm not at my most coherent, but I tried to round things up (and also promised more Iapetus and Pluto images, which I MUST post this week. Well, maybe Pluto will come next week.)

I don't think I've posted a link yet to Amir Alexander's latest Stardust@home update on "the delicate art of picking picokeystones.
