Please treat other forum members with respect and courtesy. Constructive comments without bad language are what we're looking for here. Everyone was a beginner in Astronomy once and even those of us who are very experienced can make mistakes.

We'll check the forum from time to time. Bloggers who we feel are not acting in the spirit of colleaguiality will have their accounts disabled...

Hope you enjoy sharing opinions and experiences...

Have fun

Anyone else hear about Curiosity. It is going to investigate a rock outcrop (Shaler) then start driving toward Mount Sharp, it's going to be a 5 mile drive (Expected to take at least a year due to them only being able to travel a couple hundred feet per day, and possible interesting targets and their going to avoid the Sand Dunes as much as they can).
My reaction when they announced that: YES!!! FINALLY!!!

Like the images of the Rover .
This would make a nice model !

This is a "crowd science" project that I thought people might be interested in taking part in. It runs lots of projects - from Astronomy and galaxy identification to Greek history! It's a very interesting website with lots of things to do.
