George,

I believe that when you first mentioned at a meeting that you were ordering the RASC books I said I would like one and I believe I paid you then.  Is that correct?

Just as George finished his presentation and brought the guests out the moon popped over the roof line! 

Matt and George showed Alberio and other bright sky objects (I wasn't paying attention). I showed the moon and highlighted crater Tycho and got carried away about Tycho Brahe and the data Kepler could get only after Tycho died and the nose thing, etc, etc.
Of course many folks were underdressed and cold so that limited observing time for many to half an hour or so. 

The written reviews NBG collects were great to fantastic. George had 'em in the aisles. 
Amy, thank you for opening up and helping out.

Saw it in IMAX are lynnhaven last night. Loved the movie, but next time I am bringing my ear plugs! Thought I was back in the carrier!

Interesting note about gargantuan (the black hole), kip torn and the graphics company feed actual formulas for the computer to show the lensing around the singularity. It took around 300 seconds of computer time per frame of video to generate the image. Two science papers (physics and computer programming) are being written from the results.

What's Her Name and I caught the 3:15 PM iMax at the VA Air & Space Center.

IT WAS AWSOME!!!!!

Well worth the fifty five minutes trying to get back to Chesapeake.

There were a couple of inconsistencies, like when he enters the black hole there is enough turbulence to destroy the space ship, however he survives the same turbulence in his flight suit...

But an AWSOME movie, none the less, GO SEE IT IN iMax...
