Just for fun: the spacecraft bulletin board at JPL

I had lunch with a friend from grad school at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory today. When you walk "on lab" (as they say at JPL), this bulletin board greets you at the far end of the open quad at the JPL entrance. It's a wonderfully old-school way that they keep up with where JPL has spacecraft (or instruments on spacecraft). I always like to pause and take a few moments to take in all the activity before I walk on.

Sorry that the text at the bottom isn't totally legible, but with some effort and help from the little cartoon representations of the spacecraft and the general shape of the text you should be able to puzzle out all the different missions pictured. JPL's busy!
