Over on the right-hand side of the blog, there is a "new" poll (it's been up for a week, but I haven't mentioned it yet) asking your opinion on NASA's biggest success since the moon landings. Feel free to register your opinion. If you don't see a choice you like, feel free to add it in the comments to this post. I'll talk about the results and my opinion once the poll closes.
NASA had a good weekend -- the shuttle Endeavour safely launched on a mission to add more living space to the International Space Station, and the Spirit rover on Mars called home to say that it was a little low on energy, but otherwise is doing fine.
I, on the other hand, am having fun trying to define my "teaching philosophy" for job applications. It is a one-to-two page essay that everyone asks for, but nobody has ever bothered to tell us postdocs what it is supposed to convey. I've found tips online, and find that if I read enough helpful hints, they all contradict each other. Thanks a lot.
