Luna will be in sharp focus in 2017 as the US experiences a total solar eclipse and five teams try to land a rover on the Moon.  

Total Eclipse of the Sun

On August 21, citizens in the US from California to the Carolinas will be able to view a total solar eclipse for the first time since 1979.  The track of totality will start in Salem California, before crossing Boise, Idaho, Omaha, Nebraska, Kansas City, St Louis, Nashville, Athens, Georgia and ending in Charleston, South Carolina.  Starting at 10:20 PDT and ending at 2:47 EDT, the transit will cross all four time zones in the lower 48 and take more than 6 hours to complete.  Virtually slicing the country in half, this means that there will be many opportunities for anyone that has never seen an eclipse to do so.  If not, the consolation prize is that the Sun’s track will present more than ¾ of the lower 48 with 90% totality.

“Do you swear to tell the data, the whole data and nothing but the data, so help you Intel?”

“Dwee Doo.”

When you think about it, it almost seems like a plot for a sci-fi movie.  The police, while investigating a murder, bring in for questioning an Android.  Said Android was witness to murder.  The prosecution via the courts compels the Android to testify as to what it heard when the murder occurred.
