YAAAAAAAAAAY! That means I can absolutely attend again.  With the other dates, there was a conflict that would have caused much groveling and presents at the feet of my wife otherwise.   Much happiness on my part!

All I know is might give that padding we need to arrange the money to ensure we can attend.

May day weekend now.

 

And that's significant?

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day

 

Denton's fairly far from Austin, so not too many Texas socialists there.

 

In the US the day following  Tax Freedom Day  should be the holiday celebrated by workers. April 22nd this year (...being the first day of 2014 US workers were working for themselves instead of paying for some level of government).

In the interest of getting the thread back on topic, these dates in space exploration history include the following events:

May 1

  • 1965: Luna 5, USSR Lunar Soft Lander, launched. The lunar soft-lander failed and impacted the moon.

 

May 2

  • 1885 Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck was appointed extraordinary professor of theoretical physics in Kiel.
  • 1961: Manned Mercury-Redstone (MR-3) launch postponed because of rain squalls in the recovery area.
