Mars = the best planet. This is a well-established fact in nature.
Tomorrow one of the people at NASA who have been operating the machine we have on Mars will come and hold a lecture about what they’ve found here! This will, I hope, be amazing, almost as amazing as hearing Neil DeGrasse Tyson talk. And what a change from University of Gothenburg! Last week I was going to go to a lecture by Julia Gillard, Australia’s former prime minister who is most famous, outside Australia, for putting a conservative in his place in a spectacular manner. I mistook the day, though, so I missed it, but still… these things happen all the time.
