This is a quick month, and it is time again! We will meet at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Plano, off of rt 75 at 15th street, at 6:30 pm on Sunday, Feb 24.
There are a number of activities going on, in our Chapter, National, and at NASA:
>the regional Science fair, and the first ever Dallas Chapter prizes being awarded on Feb 23. We will have details!
>The preparations for URC are getting into gear, with a record 15 teams registering this year (gulp!!)
>I’ve downloaded the Adobe InDesign software package, and we are gearing up to start work on the paper editing.
>The call for papers went out from National for the annual convention, to be held at Boulder this year in mid August.
>the poster contest from national
>progress and activity on the Zooniverse ‘Planet Four’ wind streak mapping project. I’ve done a few dozen photos – it is neat to be looking at actual pictures of Mars and to be working on an actual Mars Science project.
>Curiosity went drilling, and NASA has agreed on a 2020 rover, mission TBD. Meanwhile, in Washington……
See you there this Sunday!!
