Marching for Science, or Why I am Behind at #365papers

I’ve been doing so well. Papers read and posts written for 107 papers thus far this year. Then suddenly… Silence.

It’s not that I haven’t been thinking about science. Quite the contrary.

I haven’t been reading or posting because I went there. I marched. In Washington DC. With 40,000 of my science colleagues.

With planning the trip, travel, and actually being there and trying to take in all of Washington’s museums and sights, well… It just didn’t happen.  Nevertheless, I will catch up. I have papers selected. I’m ready to read.

In the meantime, enjoy some photos:

I’m ready!
The family is ready, too!

And some science:

Visiting the Udvar-Hazy Center (part of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum)
Space Shuttle Discovery. I admit I cried when I saw this.
The heat shielding tiles on the Space Shuttle have been through a lot!
What a sight! (I might have been really taken by the Space Shuttle!)

And my solitary souvenier:

A good start to every day!
