- Presentations from the OPAG Spring Meeting were released online. The presentations included details on the new Joint Science Definition Teams for the Saturn/Titan and Jupiter/Europa Flagship mission concepts and the Io Volcanic Observer, a possible Discovery-class mission using new Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generators.
- I processed more Io images and posted them on my Images Website. These include Galileo images acquired during the I27 flyby (including Amirani, Zal, and Shamshu), New Horizons images, and Voyager images.
- Kilauea is still 'sploding.
- A new anti-radiation drug might make interplanetary manned spaceflight a little bit easier, but probably won't be the solution for living on Io.
