Nice to feel you again.
"In December of 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt spent about 75 hours on the Moon, while colleague Ronald Evans orbited overhead. The crew returned with 110 kilograms of rock and soil samples, more than from any of the other lunar landing sites. Cernan and Schmitt are still the last to walk (or drive) on the Moon."

Storm clouds on Mars, as it nears its closest approach to Earth:
"In April, Earth and Mars will converge for their closest approach of 2014. Opposition occurs on April 8. That’s when Mars rises in the east at sunset, almost perfectly opposite the sun, and soars overhead at midnight shining 8 times brighter than a 1st-magnitude star."
Astronomers are already capturing great views of the Red Planet.
The photograph above is from Anthony Wesley:
"His high-resolution image shows orographic clouds over the Elysium volcanoes just north of the Martian equator and an even brighter blue cloud over the Hellas impact basin in the southern hemisphere. Hellas is the lowest point on Mars, and some of the haze evident there could be icy fog."

Play-journalism works, according to The New York Times:
“‘It is the gamification of content,’ said Joshua Benton, director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard. ‘Take the same dynamics that lead games and social sharing to be addictive and use them in a way to connect to content.’”
Think crossword puzzles and NCAA brackets, but for the digital age.
It’s gamification. And the results are more traffic, more clicks.
That’s me, Travoltified. Some 100,000 people an hour did this.
Jude Stonz. I like it. Wish it were Jude “Heisenberg” Stonz.
