Mars has even less to do with Chinese restaurants (I really don't think there are any up there) than Miffy, but hey, the truth is I'm thinking so dang much about Chinese restaurants in my offline time that it's just too much to blog about them... you'll just have to wait for my show at Mills if you want to know what I've been doing in the Chinese restaurant department. Anyway, about Mars, you should go look through a telescope. Tip: the lines are much shorter to look through the independent telescopes set up by assorted folks & the image is just about the same as through the big, official telescopes.
