I have been tremendously busy this week with JREF stuff, so I've been letting some news and other things slip behind me. I'll try to put down my thoughts on the gassy Mars news soon, but until then, please feel free to comment on my Pope article, find out how far away the horizon is, or listen to an interview I did with Lab Out Loud, the official podcast of the National Science Teachers Association. Here's the direct link to the MP3. We talked JREF quite a bit, as well as IYA 2009.
More later. Promise.
