OK: now that the AFC had decided it's champion for this year: one main question now arises:


Who ITH designed the Seahawks' (presumably standard "home"?) uniforms? Darth Vader? If you wanted to to highlight the teams into "humans" vs. 
"robots" for TV, you couldn't do worse than this....


Also: said robots don't seem to have had their "defense" programming updated....

Two Important Space Milestones

We've had two important space milestones these past few days. Though neither represent a breakthrough in the what, both are breakthroughs for the who, and the how.

MOM being placed in vacuum test chamber.


Both are significant for various reasons.
