Apologies for the silence on the blog lately. I’ve been trying to get caught up with work since I got back from the north woods of Michigan last sunday. However, I thought I should take a minute and mention the forest fires in LA that are threatening JPL . People on the MER team have been sending occasional updates and photos over the last few days as the fires inch closer to the Lab.
Best wishes for those in the LA area affected by this fire. Stay safe! No homes are reported lost yet, and let’s hope no telescopes or NASA labs will be lost either!
Emily Lakdawalla also has a post full of info about the fires over at the Planetary Society blog.
