Happy Easter!

There's no better way to show reverence to your lord and savior than to make cheap, dollar store, chocolate symbols of his long painful death... Happy Easter!!!

ALMA is working!

"Mat Kaplan traveled to Chile's Atacama Desert for the inauguration of ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter submillimeter Array. Here's the video that complements his coverage on Planetary Radio.  Watch the giant dishes do their cosmic dance!  Feel the wind at 16,500 feet/5,000 meters!  See the custom-built, 28-wheel transporter pull a 110-ton dish onto its back!  Hear ISS astronauts congratulate the international ALMA team!"

Arthur C. Clarke

Dr. Clarke passed away in 2008, 5 years ago today at the ripe old age of 90. He was a visionary, predicting the concept of telecommunications satellites in geostationary orbits, and writing some excellent science-fiction novels as 2001: A Space Odyssey and my favorite of his: Rendezvous with Rama.
