Well he started way back in the late 90's and originally was out to fight bad astronomy, Like planet X and the Mayan callender. Now he's famous and worked on Hubble so does lots of stuff. He has access to a lot of cool departments in NASA and Europe.

Speaking of Mark, anyone know how he's doing? Improving, I hope.

And where's Mikey? He hasn't been on in a while. :?

Well he did have a lot on his plate after Sandy and the injury. I assume he's just getting on top of things.

True, but that happened several weeks before he dropped off the radar, and he seemed to be on the mend and keeping on top of things. Anyway, if you or Tsu happen to speak to him give him my best.
