Eight years! blink.gif
EIGHT years!! wacko.gif

UMSF marks 8 years on February 8th.
All hail to Doug (djellison) for making our lives so dependent on our daily fix of space images biggrin.gif

In the category of things that have changed since UMSF was born....

Indeed a milestone, and all credit to our Chairman! A remarkable achievement, sir.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

The thanks should really go to the members for the content, the Planetary Society for their support, and the admin team of Glen, Dan and especially Emily for keeping us all on the rails.

I'm just along for the ride smile.gif

Just imagine what the next 8 years could hold.
