If this is Google's idea of an April Fools' stunt, it's pretty amazing.

Humanity - via NASA - has arrived in orbit around Ceres! Go to this link and watch the video. Wowzer.  What a year it's been, with landings on comets and discoveries near Saturn and approaching Pluto and discovering scads of extrasolar planets and finally getting satellites out there to study the Earth (after a previous administration sabotaged science)...  amazing times of which we should be proud!

Indeed, the most amazing thing is that we... aren't!  The cult of fear-mongering cynicism has grown so intense that hardly anyone can stand up, anymore, and shout out the window "I AM A MEMBER OF A CIVILIZATION THAT DOES STUFF LIKE THIS!"

Watch my rant about how we need to (aggressively!) fight cynicism with pride and joy.

Today is Amelia Earhart's birthday, July 24, 1897
Here are three quotes from her:
"Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done."
"Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others."
"The stars seemed near enough to touch and never before have I seen so many. I always believed the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, but I was sure of it that night."
Here's a link to more quotes on her official website:
