I'll be on vacation from June 8 to 16, and I will be leaving my computer behind, a prospect that I find a little scary but which I know will be necessary for me actually to enjoy my time off and spend time with family instead of checking up on Phoenix every day! I'm sorry to those of you who have been relying on me for Phoenix news, but I have lined up two guests to fill in during my absence who I hope will not only provide you with continued news but will give you a new perspective on things.
It's possible but not certain that I'll post one more update on Phoenix before I go, but if I don't find time to write tomorrow this will be my last post until Monday, June 16. I hope you enjoy the contributions of the dueling Jims during my absence!
P.S. this is my 1500th post. Wow.
P.P.S. a little humor for the weekend's funny pages, thanks to "Airbag" from unmannedspaceflight.com:
