Poll #1988290 Space mission publicity

I have heard of the following missions independently from your journal.

Cassini-Huygens (NASA-ESA mission: spacecraft currently in orbit around Saturn)
11(44.0%)
JUICE (ESA mission: future spacecraft, to orbit Jupiter and the Galilean moons)
1(4.0%)
Cluster (ESA mission: set of 4 spacecraft currently studying Earth's space plasma environment)
3(12.0%)
Rosetta (ESA mission: spacecraft orbiting a comet, soon to release a lander)
10(40.0%)

I would not have heard about these missions if I didn't read your journal.

Cassini-Huygens (NASA-ESA mission: spacecraft currently in orbit around Saturn)
2(7.7%)
JUICE (ESA mission: future spacecraft, to orbit Jupiter and the Galilean moons)
12(46.2%)
Cluster (ESA mission: set of 4 spacecraft currently studying Earth's space plasma environment)
9(34.6%)
Rosetta (ESA mission: spacecraft orbiting a comet, soon to release a lander)

I keep up with space science news through various media channels.

Yes, pretty regularly
4(28.6%)
Only when it hits the headlines
10(71.4%)
It's not really my thing
0(0.0%)

I reckon I'm somewhere between 'pretty regularly' and 'headlines' when it comes to space news. Not least cos I follow your good self and Dave C here and on Twitter.

Add in a cosmologist and you've got most of the (science) space bases covered, I think!

I've always been a little interested, but having a friend involved in space science definitely makes me pay more attention to it. :)
