Hi, everyone! Just thought I'd introduce myself. I haven't actually been to any meetings or anything, but hopefully I'll be there on Sunday (does anyone know how long it usually goes? I might have to work in the afternoon). Pleasure to meet you all :)

Except you, Eric :P

I am planning on attending. There was some talk on going as a group, but it didn't really get planned (stupid work taking me away from fun).

Hope to see you!

Mark, that is awesome.  Wow!  Thanks so much for sharing.  I'm showing it to my daughter right now.

I thought this was cool and worth sharing with the kids, especially if they're science fans or you're trying to foster an interest in science.  It's called "The Scale of the Universe 2."  Make sure to explore both sides of the scale.  You can click on any object to learn more -- from string at one end of the scale to the observable universe at the other -- and even Russell's Teapot in between.
