eros crater

NEAR-related quote of the day, regarding the weak gravity of the asteroid Eros and the large crater seen in pictures taken yesterday: “If you were running down the wall of the crater and you were running back up, you’d probably just leave.” (Joseph Veverka, Cornell scientist, from MSNBC) That’s so damn cool.

Thanks a ton, David — it’ll be a stressful month, for sure, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel (getting to be a kid doc).
