Swedes Reach the Moon!

Click on the image above to see the lonnnnng, slow route that was taken to get to the moon. Thrifty Swedes, they reached the moon with lots of fuel left over!

SMART-1 is the first of ESA's 'Small Missions for Advanced Research in Technology'. It reached the Moon using revolutionary propulsion techniques and carrying a battery of miniaturised instruments. (click here for ESA web page about SMART-1).

Launched by the ESA last year, this is a Swedish built spacecraft and is only the second ever using an ion-drive as its main rocket.

Mae in NYC

Hi, Andersons,

I saw Mae in NYC last Saturday night. I was there for a conference. Mae, my brother Terrell, his girlfriend Jen, and I all went out to Dragonfly, a Filipino restaurant in Greenwich Village. Then, we went to Cafe Reggio, and then we went to Upright Citizens Brigade, a standup comedy and improv group. Fun show. It was great to see Mae. I had a whirlwind trip, but NY was fun.
