Tomorrow the family heads away from home for three weeks, two weeks of which I plan not to work at all. The blog will continue; I've been working hard to accumulate extra posts, so there should be something new every day for the next couple of weeks. But I obviously won't be on top of breaking news. I planned the trip to fall between Hayabusa's return to Earth and Rosetta's flyby of Lutetia. Following Hayabusa has totally wiped me out, so the break couldn't have come at a better time. I'll hopefully be energized by the two-week break and blogging live again before the Lutetia encounter happens.
