Just pointing you to two new items on the website: I just posted a preview of the impending Rosetta flyby of the asteroid Steins, about 30 days away, including an encounter timeline. And there's a new installment -- the penultimate one, I'm sorry to say -- in Tyler Nordgren's "Stars Above, Earth Below" blog. As always, he has wonderful pictures. This is one of my favorites so far.
