I presume that, like me, you are appreciating what a great time of year this is. The weather, the greenery, the outdoor activities, patios and skin (finally!) exposed to air! - I mean, what's not to like?? With all these things going on, I felt it was time to put together a list of events and todo's, along with a smattering of interesting, dare I say artsy, little tidbits. So, here goes... Enjoy!
Coming up on July 4th, the Juno Jupiter Mission will be orbiting Jupiter. Since this is a few weeks off, here's some information and a super exciting Hollywood-style trailer to satisfy all of your space travel ya-yas.
