I'm going to Mars

Well, not really...but my name is. This weekend, NASA launched a new probe to the red planet. Included was a small optical disk that includes a number of stories and books about the red planet, including The Martian Chronicles and Green Mars. Also included on the disk were the names of every member of the Planetary Society, which includes my name is going, even if I'm not. Now let's just hope that it's part of the 33% of probes that actually manage to land.

My hope is that by the next time they do something like this, I'll have a Mars story that's worthy of making the is, after all, one of my favorite subjects to write about.
