Science news tabs on my browser. A couple times a week I open them all up and sort through articles that catch my interest. I mostly followed the SpaceX Dragon launch on space.com but also on NASA website,too, especially for ISS docking vids. Quite cool. Missed my scientific calling in life.

It's never too late. When I graduated from SCC, there were two of us with 4.0 GPAs graduating. Me and a woman in her 60's or 70's (I don't recall which.)

Thanks for that. I will get back to it someday. May be in my 60's or 70's by then, but what the heck.

So, How many moons in our solar system have we discovered as of 1994?

62

Almost half of them were discover by the Voyager Program.

And, it amazes me when I think of how little this program cost us.

:blink: 40 years is cheap? :blink:

Would you give up your next 40 years to find out how many moons there are in our solar system?

Not my chosen field, but if it were that would be quite an accomplishment.

Now, to send one thru a blackhole to be returned as one of the supreme
powers in the universe... :roflmao:
