Venus to Pass in Front of Sun

Filed under: Space — Patterico @ 10:26 pm

It happens tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10:19 PDT, according to Reuters (so you know it must be true). But we probably won’t be able to see it from the U.S. very well.

It’s a rare event and a big deal, folks. Pay attention to the news tomorrow.

BUSH TO LET HUBBLE TELESCOPE DIE

Bush is canceling necessary trips to the Hubble telescope, a decision that is seen as letting Hubble die. I am not happy about this. But I’m sure Matt Yglesias approves.

Filed under: Space — Patterico @ 7:27 pm

Bush says we should send people to Mars. Sounds good to me. (Via Calblog.)

He also says we should build a permanent station on the moon. That sounds good too.

MARS IN COLOR: COMING SOON

Filed under: Space — Patterico @ 7:54 pm

Many people are excited about the Mars pictures, but are asking why they are all in black and white.

Ask no longer. Color pictures are expected tomorrow.

I, for one, am excited. This ain’t Formula One racing, but it’s pretty cool.
