It's been said that during the 1800's; during the Leonid meteor shower, 200,000 meteors could be seen per hour. That's 3,333 per minute, or 55 per second. That is a shower I would love to see.

That's what probably made him so brilliant.

NASA's Mars Rovers Set Surface Longevity Record
05.19.10 -- NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Project will pass a historic Martian longevity record on Thursday, May 20.


I was looking at this site the other day. I didn't realize that two of the Mars rovers (Spirit and Opportunity) are still running around up there collecting data. There are some good videos about them on the NASA site.

Amen. The Blackbird is the greatest plane ever built. In college I had friends interview with Lockheed and I would tell them to ask the interviewers about the Skunk Works.

I agree that they need to expand the Dulles hangar. They have so much stuff (and such huge items like the Blackbird and the Shuttle) that it makes the hangar seem kind of small.
