Realistic Space Battles and a Blog About Craters

Two quick links to hold you over until my AGU coverage starts on Monday. First up, Joe Shoer has a great post on his blog about what space battles might actually be like. This should be required reading for sci-fi authors, especially those with hard sci-fi leanings.

Second, Jim Richardson, a researcher here at the Cornell Astronomy Dept. has started a new blog about impact craters. One of his first posts had some very interesting pictures of nuclear explosion craters as analogs for impacts.

That’s all for now, stay tuned for AGU updates! I’ll also be tweeting from the meeting as @marschronicler.

    You’re at a conference? Feh! Clearly, I am the superior procrastinator!

    Thanks for the plug, as always!
