Noted. Thanks, Dan. I'm looking forward to more upcoming info regarding this. I just hope youngsters in school are following this and learning much from it in their science classes. The 60's saw a great explosion of interest due to the Moon launches, and we are long overdue for another one.

I wasn't impressed with the 'Lucifers Hammer' novel or movie; we certainly don't need it in our back yard. Watching comets cruise through is fun though.
