More posts about the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) NASA Tweetup (Nov. 25 & 26, 2011) will follow soon but in the meantime, enjoy these snapshots. Additional photos can be found on my Flickr account.

Oh, and don’t ya just love this retro photo of me and my siblings at the Kennedy Space Center from 1981? Pretty awesome and yet, 30 years later, NASA still excites me, maybe even more.
