Sorry, no time for a synopsis of this one:
Cross your fingers…. The Redcoats are about to land on the Red Planet. Check out the Beagle 2 website to keep track of how they do. ETA is Christmas Day, 2:54am GMT. Thanks again to Glen for the keen link – also if you haven’t already, check out the call sign the probe is scheduled to play. Pretty neat.
MoveOn is sponsoring a contest to find a 30-second commercial that summarizes all the reasons why Bush shouldn’t be re-elected. They were more successful than they thought. Over 1000 potential ads were entered, so they need your help to judge the ads and pick your favorites. You don’t have to watch them all; just 20 at a time whenever you can. Who knows; you might find a real gem!
I came across this site accidentally, doing a search on futuristic designs from the 50s. What I found was a CafePress site run by a guy who does artwork in two categories: really pretty Celtic stuff and really neat-o “50s-vision-of-the-future” stuff. I thought it was a fascinating combination, one that really appealed to me, and I figured some of you might be intrigued as well…
Planning a trip through space today? Well, why not check the weather? You never know when those magnetic storms might hit!
