Mars Party - Fri.Aug.29.03
Count slowly: one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand.... You just got about 30 km closer to the planet Mars.
Earth and Mars are rapidly converging. On August 27, 2003--the date of
closest approach--the two worlds will be 56 million km apart. That's a long
way by Earth standards, but only a short distance on the scale of the solar
system. CU won't let us in on Weds - but it's free on Friday! Mars
will rise just before 11pm so first we'll check out the best rooftop deck in Boulder for
an weather / cloud check.
