People of the Internet, I’ve been away for a while due to an unpleasant combination of personal and professional reasons. It led to a lot of pain and a lot of soul searching. But that’s behind me now, and I have a renewed enthusiasm for writing, blogging, and science. Today, I have a special announcement:

The 2015 Mission to the Solar System

In 2015, Planet Pailly is launching a yearlong mission to explore the Solar System. Blog posts over the coming year will visit all nine eight planets as well as several of the Solar System’s other areas of interest. Here is our mission itinerary:

  • January, 2015: The Sun
  • February, 2015: Mercury
  • March, 2015: Venus
  • April, 2015: Earth
  • May, 2015: The Moon
  • June, 2015: Mars
  • July, 2015: The Asteroid Belt
  • August, 2015: Jupiter
  • September, 2015: Saturn
  • October, 2015: Uranus
  • November, 2015: Neptune
  • December, 2015: Pluto/The Kuiper Belt

Be advised that the “Mission to the Solar System” series will include numerous highly technical diagrams like the one pictured below.

So I hope you’ll join me for this sciency adventure. Also, please check out Planet Pailly’s new mission statement as well as the new page for ongoing series, and stay tuned for updates regarding my other major projects (especially Tomorrow News Network).

Our Mission to the Solar System officially begins on Monday with a post entitled “The Sun’s Gone Wibbly.”
