Crypto, they substitute kerosene. It adds a nice jet fuel-ish taste to the skin.

Good morning bar! Heading out today. My own "then came Elorrum" except in a subcompact. Still more detritus to deal with. Thank god for dumpsters. I have tried to donate and recycle. This last bit is really trash.

About this banner... I hereby give you, Elorrum, permission to exceed the posted speed limit. If 'they' give you any argument about it, just tell 'em I said it was OK. :wink:

Otherwise, it'll be years before we get to see you!

Sold? I wish. But many hopefully will find new homes. Still enough left to put in storage in Reno. News of a friend in hospital in Sacramento, so going there first tomorrow. Gives me time to clean the car, buff up cloudy headlamps, make some privacy shades for the car, and get a haircut. Sacramento, Reno, then next stop Boise.

Congratulations for the European Space Agency are in order for landing a remote lander on Rosetta. I'd heard about it, but I'm sure I'll get to see some of the telemetry data. They're doing a robotic core, and I'm guessing that they'll do digital image maps of Raman spectroscopic results to determine mineralogy and overall lithologic composition. Complex stuff, but once you have the basics down, you can pretty much look at the digital images to determine rock textures, intergrain boundaries, and such to come up with what's needed.

I await results in future issues of Meteoritics.

Got some rain, so yay.
I'm so hoping my concrete I poured yesterday is good......gotta go check.

quite the comet intercept, for sure. It'll be interesting, not only to see what is learned of the comets composition, but, how long the probe actually stays on the comet and where it goes and can see.
