Overnight Open Thread (10 Jan 2014)

While the media has wall to wall coverage of 'Bridgegate', here are 24 underreported Democratic scandals. Free press? Never heard of it.


Lessons Learned From Comet ISON

10 lessons from the "Comet of the Century". Now while ISON was a failure for backyard viewing, we still have things to look forward to this year.

On May 24 of this year, Earth will pass through the trail of Comet 209P/LINEAR, possibly producing a spectacular meteor shower. In August, the Rosetta spacecraft will rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and then (all going well) drop a lander onto its surface in November. Just before that, on October 19, Comet Siding Springs will squeak 110,000 kilometers from Mars. The comet will pass so close that its coma (glowing envelope) will enshroud the planet and perhaps noticeably alter its atmosphere. Every spacecraft on and around Mars, including NASA’s upcoming MAVEN probe, will be watching.
