Terrific explanation +Emily Lakdawalla 
I am a moderator on one of the big science communities and shared your blog post.  
It was one of the most popular posts I have ever done.

You are an excellent teacher and explainer. It is a pleasure to read your materials.
You were one of the first people I circled on Google+ when I first got on, and I am so glad I did.

Thanks.

I'd love to see more photos from Venus' surface! Could we drop a probe inside a heat, pressure and sulfuric acid resistant bubble? Or is that too many things for one material to do ? :)

I'm really psyched about a new feature we just built into our website that allows me to show these before-and-after comparisons: http://www.planetary.org/blogs/emily-lakdawalla/2014/05191401-rover-dust-before-and-after.html

Rosetta is in the final stage of its approach to comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Yesterday, the spacecraft successfully performed the first of ten burns it needs to match velocity with the comet.

Emily - did you hear about Colin Pillinger's death? He was involved in Rosetta (among lots of other things that he's done). Very sad :( http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-27322166
