Come sail away, come sail away...

...solar sail, that is. The oft-delayed Cosmos 1 solar sail project is finally set to launch Tuesday, on my (and Nevsky's) thirty-fourth birthday. Hopefully, the ship will handle the solar wind far, far better than I've been handling the arrival of yeah-it's-already-happened-but-now-I-can't-bullshit-myself middle age.

Hmm, looks like I've turned a scientific milestone into a navel-gazing angst feast. Oh well. If you really care, you can read the Slashdot article while I go watch I Love the 80s.
