Kind of cat busy today so here are some links that are taking up room on the top of Chrome right now:
An article here from the Globe & Mail on Georgia, the first in a series. It begins with Svaneti.
Wikipedia in Latin asks us today if we know that "...anno 1868 primum textum lingua Protoindoeuropaea (sc. Fabulam Schleicheri) scriptum esse?" (the first text in Proto-Indo-European, Schleicher's Fable, was written in 1868?)
An article here from Space.com talks about the possibility of a moon around Vesta, one of the first thing Dawn team members will be looking out for. Dawn is now just 25,000 km away from Vesta. It's been almost 6 days since the last image was released (taken on the 1st at a distance of 100,000 km) so we're due for another one very soon. Arrival is on the 16th, so just three days from now.
