Damn, when will the Genesis Wave start circling the planet?

RIP Genesis, BTW, has it been confirmed on Bloody-Disgusting.com?

BD.com is usually about 2 days behind on the news since all they do is take news from other websites and re-post it (sound familiar?).  So we won't know until Friday or Saturday.

Just watched it on the link Dale provided.  Looking at it was sad knowing that they were concern about it hitting hard and messing up the data it had collected.   Hopefully they can still use some of the data.

Star Trek references on a Star Wars board, buddy.

We may as well be strangers in a strange land ;)

Really cool.

And dammit, I forgot each time to make the drive out and watch (I certainly had the time). Would have been cool to have been there, being this is the most significant advance in spaceflight to take place during my lifetime. Bummer.
