A few quick Space links to cap Friday night.
On Bad Astronomy: Atlantis’ final reentry was caught from the IIS in this amazing picture. Also, an amateur astronomer managed to catch the IIS and Atlantis in broad daylight, 1.5 hrs after sunrise. Awesome!
Speaking of amateur astronomy, this iPhone telescope clip would be awesome. If only someone would actually manufacture it! I’d buy two.
NASA has some stunning high-res pics of Vesta, an asteroid in the belt on the outskirts of our solar system and second only to the dwarf planet Ceres in mass.
And last, but certainly not least, HOLY FUCKING SHIT RUNNING WATER ON MARS. Sure, it’s just a trickle, but it’s there. Incredible. I’ll have to go into the implications another time; for now, time to get my weekend on.
