Please leave comments and ask lots of questions. My objective is to get people excited about science generally, and to provoke in them a renewed sense of wonder.
If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome. I will be attending the NASA Tweetup for the final launch of an American Space Shuttle, Atlantis’ STS-135 mission. NASA has a full schedule of activities planned for us on July 7, including a tour of the Vehicle Assembly Building, retraction of the Rotating Service Structure at Launch Pad 39A, and several speakers. The launch is scheduled for July 8 at 11:26. I will be posting here and on Twitter about what I am doing and what I am learning, and I encourage you to experience this historic event with me through these social media channels.
