*cricket sound*

Sorry for my lack of posting lately.  I’ve been very busy, and haven’t been very interested in doing much typing.  Of course, I keep track of things that are going on in the world of science and space.  I just want to mention a couple of things.

First, Kepler has been launched on the search for Earth-sized exoplanets by using the transit method.  I know the first results won’t be available for a while (they need repeated transits to confirm a planet), but I’ll be keeping tabs on it.

Second, the launch of Discovery keeps getting delayed.  It’s supposed to deliver more solar panels to the station for the anticipated increase to 6 crewmembers.  When the new solar panels are attached, it will be the 2nd brightest object in the night sky, brighter than Venus!  I’ll be looking up quite often, I think.
