Enjoy tonight's nearly-full Moon! I couldn't resist posting these snapshots that Alice Wessen took of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's costume contest. There were many costumes that were not on space themes, but I had to feature some of the marvelously geeky space costumes here!Alert Society members may recognize Orion as Rachel (Zimmerman) Brachman, who used to work at the Society and who now has a great gig at JPL! Alice wrote on her facebook page that as the "solar system" lady walked off stage, a small planet fell off her costume, and everyone shouted "Pluto!!"
But none of the space costumes won the contest. The winner was, naturally, a dancing gorilla.Happy Halloween!

Fifteen years ago, Society members and passionate space advocates like you helped save the Pluto mission. Now we can do the same for missions to Europa and Mars.
