Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 31: Uranus

Emily Lakdawalla • December 31, 2009

Did you think I was going to skip Uranus? How could I?

Worsening outlook for Spirit

Emily Lakdawalla • December 31, 2009

I just got a press release from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory that made my heart sink; the extrication effort for Spirit is not going at all well. I did not want to keep sounding a knell of bad news. But once in a while, I do have to report bad news.

2009: The Year in Pictures

Emily Lakdawalla • December 31, 2009

At last, I've posted my annual Year in Pictures feature. Go check it out!

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 30: Tempel 1

Emily Lakdawalla • December 30, 2009

Looking over the list of planets, moons, and smaller bodies I posted so far, I realized I didn't have an image of a comet yet.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 29: Rhea

Emily Lakdawalla • December 29, 2009

Rhea? You might be asking. Rhea? When Saturn has so many more interesting moons? Hear me out.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 28: Ariel

Emily Lakdawalla • December 28, 2009

Here's yet another of the moons of Uranus for you: Ariel, a near-twin in diameter to Umbriel, but apparently with more interesting geology.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 27: Prometheus (hot off the presses!)

Emily Lakdawalla • December 27, 2009

This one is fresh from the spacecraft! The data were captured yesterday, December 26, by Cassini during its best yet imaging encounter with the small ringmoon Prometheus, and showed up on the Cassini raw images website today.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 26: Titan

Emily Lakdawalla • December 26, 2009

Titan is a weird alternate-universe Earth, surprisingly similar to our own planet in some ways, but not at all like our planet in others.

Planetary Society Advent Calendar for December 25: Double planet

Emily Lakdawalla • December 24, 2009

To those of you who celebrate the holiday, merry Christmas! I hope Santa was good to you.

Happy Christmas on Mars!

Emily Lakdawalla • December 24, 2009

This was so cute I had to repost it -- and record it too.
