Yesterday, I was in a live video chat session with several other scientists and science journalists. I wrote up the details of it yesterday, and it went pretty well! We had a lot of fun talking about the new GRAIL Moon mission, the fiery future return of Phobos-Grunt, 2012, and of course President Obama's purported teleportation trip to Mars many years ago. Wait, what? Well, if you wanna know more, now you can: the video's online.

The plan is to do these every week on Thursdays, and have a rotating cast of characters over time. I hope you like it. And I strongly suggest people join up over at Google+

. I really like it there, and post quite a few things

you won't see here or on Twitter.
