We present an update and a video about the successful design, construction, and testing in a vacuum chamber by Honeybee Robotics of a prototype PlanetVac system, a new planetary surface sampling technique, sponsored by The Planetary Society. PlanetVac is a reliable system that effectively vacuums up planetary surface materials.
Bright and early this morning, we NASA Social folks met at the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex for a tour of the space shuttle Atlantis. This is the first shuttle I've seen in person, and it was a stunning sight to see.
Tonight, I'm on The Big Bang Theory with Bob Newhart. I hope you watch closely enough to notice the pin in my lapel. It's our pin, The Planetary Society logo pin. It's the coolest logo pin ever. So, you're probably wondering how to get one. Join The Planetary Society by November 15, and we'll send you a pin.
