Lunar Advent

Sorry for the short entry. Busy drawing rockets and astronauts with my kids. This is our Lunar-Landing Advent Calendar. We're having oatmeal in plastic baggies and Tang for breakfast tomorrow!

You're... you're turning science into a religion, complete with holydays...
I kinda dig that, but I also find it a little creepy. Of course, it looks like you're doing a fantastic job of getting your gets interested, and that's the important thing.

P.S. Why does the moon have a paw print on it? :-D

Yesss.... (twisting handle-bar mustache) it does seem like I'm turning it into a religion doesn't it?
Seriously, I am deliberately turning it into a cultural tradition. A lot of our holidays are really more cultural than they are religious, when you get down to it, and that's all I'm doing here. My real focus, as you point out, is telling the story, to generate interest in scientific exploration.
Also, I can't take credit for the "paw." That was my five-year-olds work.
