Weekly Wrap-Up

Weekly Wrap-Up

It’s been a busy week this week. India suffered through a series of massive power outages that lasted for days. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab is gearing up for the Curiosity rover landing on Mars this Sunday night/Monday morning. Photojournalists have been busy around the world capturing images of daily life, strife, and the Olympics in London. Jeni L. from Jonestown, PA won our Sizzling Summer Sweepstakes. All in all, this weekend looks to be just as action-packed as the week preceding it has been. I know that the Geek Club is going to stagger in half-exhausted Monday because they’re planning to go to Times Square to see the Curiosity landing. That will be taking place at 1:30 am Monday Eastern Time (10:30 pm Sunday Pacific Time) in case any of you are curious. Also, History Geek has begged me to include this video in the wrap-up for anyone who hasn’t already seen it:



Now that you’ve watched that, let’s get back to Earth and recap the big stories you might have missed this week if you aren’t following us on Twitter.

That’s all for this week, folks! Have a great weekend and we’ll see you again (with a full recap of the Curiosity landing from the “OMG Space Is Cool” club) on Monday!
