Yes folks! My sources tell me its now the Chinese year of the pig! OINKOINK.
I'm pretty bummed, I missed the launch. It was scheduled for Friday but got scrubbed. They ended up launching Saturday, but I forgot to check the Saturday launch window. Oh well, the THEMIS satellites are still very cool. I was talking to my friend Paul (Heh, I should now say Dr. Paul. Congratulations!) about them and we figured how the early part of the mission may be able to back up some ideas he has about day side Pi2.
