- News In The Community
- Upcoming Events
- LOTS of certification opportunities!
- And more!
Did you know that on October 31, after decades of delays, the James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble's successor, will take off on a rocket? It will then park itself on the shady side of Earth and help us discover even more about our infinite universe!
We'd love to hear what celesteal event you're looking to the sky for in the upcoming year. Please leave your answer in the comment section below.
While we're on the topic of things shooting off to another level, we have to mention our top performers in the December Points-a-palooza contest. Dawn Schumacher was #1 with 26,784 points, followed by Austen Brown (23,839 points) and in third place Joann Strommen (15,920 points). Altogether, the entire Community took advantage of the adjusted points and accumulated nearly half a million bonus points! Please be sure to visit their profiles and congratulate them!
And now, on to The Buzz...
