Friday's Unscientific Poll: Cassini postcards [20160129|10:59]

[Cassini swag: 3 lithographs, a Grand Finale flyer, bookmarks, postcards, NASA stickers, Ring World DVD, info cards for Saturn/Titan/Enceladus/Iapetus]

A couple of weeks ago, I contacted JPL to ask to replenish my supplies of backlit Saturn lithographs. I was put in contact with a new outreach person, who promptly sent me a list (a list!) of available outreach materials, the existence of which I had not previously been aware. I looked at the list and said yes please, one of everything if that's not too greedy. I was expecting not to get all of it.

I was wrong. Earlier this week I received a message from Stores saying, "You have a package waiting for you." I dashed down excitedly to pick up my box. The Stores person looked at me and laughed. "You're going to need a trolley."

I don't have the time at present to assemble swag packs for people, but I can send out the postcards (on the lower right in the photo). They have a good deal of information on the back, so any message from me will be quite short. Would you like one? If so, please fill out the poll below. The answers are visible only to me. Alternatively, you can PM me. (seismic & imyril: you do not need to fill out the poll.)

Poll #2034978 Cassini postcards
This poll is closed.

I would like a Cassini postcard, please! Here is an address where it will reach me.

ETA 01/02/2016: I've closed the poll because I've run out of stamps!

After this term is over I'll do another postcard round, and there will also be swag packs on offer although I'll have to be more selective with those or the postage could get prohibitively expensive.

I was provided with an abundance of Galileo postcards. I gave them out every time I spoke, for years, but I still have a whole lot of them. And the orbiter is vapor in Jupiter's atmosphere now.

They seem quaint (though better than most other images we have of Jupiter's neighborhood) now.

Maybe people will want them again when nostalgia for the Nineties peaks.

New Horizons stickers have been pretty popular. I left Maryland with 200, and I'm running low. Gave out a bunch last night.

Grouting was particularly excited to receive a postcard from (very, very approximately) Saturn! Thank you.
