Sorry for airgap between posts (in case anyone noticed). Have just been to the US for a geeky-space holiday with my husband. Please note, in this context he is the geek, not me.
Enjoyed wandering up the Mall and spotted this wonderful plant.
We spent hours in the National Air and Space Museum (hours, hours and hours) but between the command modules and lunar artifacts I found an exhibition on 'Looking at Earth' once again marvelling at how far we've come from this
to this (realtime satellite images).
