FF: The last Democratic President to nominate a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was Harry Truman in 1946. Every vacancy during the 70 years since then has occurred during a Republican President's term.

JPL, where Dr. Hetfield did his research, has one weekend a year in which they let the general public on the grounds. They don't let you go in the buildings, but they bring a lot of cool stuff out, and have the scientists there to answer questions.

We took the kids there this year. It is a zoo, because the place is actually pretty small, and there are probably 10,000 people trying to get in.

But they have some really cool shit going on there...

FF (ok... worthless fact): SirC's brother got his undergrad from CalTech so Mr. Hatfields in good company

(fwiw he, SirC's brother, then got his Ph.D. from Princeton. SirC, on the other hand, was obviously an underachiever)

I always loved astrophysics and astronomy, and still read about it a lot, but from a disciplinary standpoint I cannot handle the calculus. I'm good at math in almost all respects, but I have a disability of sorts when it comes to calculus, which hampered any foray into physical chemistry I might have been able to make.

Good for both of them.
