Mars Approaches

Or rather, we approach Mars.

Actually, I suppose it's mutual.

Anyhow, while you're over at TCS, check out this excellent article by Sallie Baliunas on the upcoming near-pass we're going to have with Mars:

This year Mars and the earth will be extraordinarily close -- on August 27 the earth will sweep closer than 35 million miles to Mars. It's enough to give earthlings Mars Fever.

Remember, you read it here first. August 27th should be a banner day in the blogosphere. We've got some big stuff planned for that week. I hope everyone else decides to join the party.

UPDATE: Pejman has caugh the fever. Maybe we should have one of those blogwave deals on the 27th?
