First off, I apologize for the lack of posting again, to all two of you reading. There’s… stuff… going on, so that’s been distracting. Beyond the slight personal indulgence of the last post, it’s back to the fun stuff! Writing is therapeutic, right?
So the UVa astro-kids got together to watch the last Presidential debate of this wild election season last night. 7 people, 5 Macs, and 1PC, it was quite a sight. I was watching the great liveblog over at Amateur Scientist which was thoroughly entertaining. Regardless of your political affiliation, you have to be appalled at McCain’s lack of knowledge or awareness when he continues to harp on the “overhead projector” at Adler Planetarium. I bitched about this previously, along with every other astronomy blogger on the ‘tubez. Citizens, arm yourself with knowledge. Learn all about this incredible planetarium projector, to which the money was never actually allocated, and donate to this excellent educational tool!
