(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Other than a burst of posts about Space Access '11 (see much more about that conference here), I haven't blogged much in the last few weeks. This is due to a combination of getting ready for a new addition to the family, lots of visitors, and other activities unrelated to blogging. I wouldn't be surprised if my posts continue to happen at a slower rate than before. I expect to be thinking more about catching up on sleep pretty soon. In the meantime, here's a roundup:

The Student Launch Initiative is taking place this weekend. The following tweet has a key hashtag and video link, but there's also lots more from SLI_1milehigh:

@SLI_1milehigh: 47 teams are competing today, including 17 middle/high schools and 30 college/univ ( #Watching_Rockets_Launch live at http://ustre.am/rrlz)

The deadline for the next tweet is now in the past, but there are still ways to get involved.

@gozerog: Last day to submit your entry into the 2011 Weightless Object Contest. Click here to enter http://bit.ly/fKSS6C

From the site:

Submit one photo of an object you would like to see weightless by April 15. ZERO-G will select the Top 5 entries and publish them on ZERO-G's Facebook page ...
