Join me tomorrow (Thursday) at noon PDT / 1900 UTC for the Planetary Society's weekly hangout! No guest this week; instead, I'll talk about some of the things I enjoyed at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. I hope you will all ask lots of questions about the news I've been reporting this week. Feel free to get the ball rolling by asking questions below!
