For sharing the frustration, exhilaration, challenges and rewards of flight operations via marsandme.blogspot.com , Scott Maxwell wins the 3rd UMSF Spirit Award, the final award of the 2009 round!


Holy smoke. Doug dropped enough hints that I can't pretend I had no idea the award would be something like this, but I can say I had no idea how touched I'd be. (And how much sorrier this makes me that time pressure eventually forced me to stop taking the notes I'd have needed to continue the blog indefinitely; it has a good while to go yet, but it doesn't go forever.) My reaction is a complicated mix of proud and humbled and thrilled and honored, all of it feeding into a determination to continue to earn this.

Thank you.

I'm both amazed by how good our Admins have been in their selection and by what the selected people have delivered.
To the one that post on UNMSF, Veronica, John and Scott (welcome!) I want to express my gratitude hoping the other winners also read us and understand our important they are for us too.

"it has a good while to go yet, but it doesn't go forever"

It doesn't?!?! ohmy.gif Take the award back!!!! laugh.gif

Seriously, congratulations Scott (and welcome to UMSF! Finally!!!!), your award - like everyone's - is richly deserved. With the possible exception of SS I'm not aware of anyone who's done more to spread the word about the magnificence of MER, and support our gals.

Congratulations to all the awrd recipients, they've all, through their efforts, helped make people Out There aware of just how exciting, valuable and rewarding science can be. No small thing in this celebrity-worshipping, bling-obsessed age.

Scott, it is never too late to start taking notes again! - I love the personal insight they have given into driving the MER's.

Congrats to all winners.
