And speaking of insanely awesome photographs... well, here's a view of the Space Shuttle you don't see every day!

Also, an update on the Planetary Body of the Year contest, as run by Mrs. Lyons second grade class... to date, the kids now have over 200 votes!

Looks like Pluto is in the lead, followed closely by the Asteroids and Neptune...

Way to go, readers! Of course, it didn't hurt that this also hit Facebook and Twitter, and spread a bit from there. Thanks for reading the childrens' letters and participating in their project. At least one other teacher on my Facebook feed said she intended to repeat the assignment with her own class... pretty cool!
