Between my last post and this one, I’ve traveled on a plane from Tucson back to Washington, DC. My jet lag will be opposite to what the Phoenix scientists face. And my homecoming, unlike Peter Smith’s, means that I will be devoting less, not more, time to Phoenix. But my posts won’t stop, they’ll just be sluggish, as if I’ve got dust on my solar arrays.
I’m pleased that Nature sent me to cover the landing, but the magazine will be far more interested in the the scientific discoveries that are going to emerge. I’ve saved a few things to write for the magazine, so stay tuned!
