    For those who may not know.....

    An object in space which has a "tail", it is not created because the object is moving.
    It is caused by the heat of the sun and the sun's solar wind (remember, light has mass and most
    of the solar wind is made of plasma).

    The tail ALWAYS points away from the sun, never behind the object (unless the object is heading straight
    into the sun).

    The tail is usually created around 90 degrees in relation to the forward motion.
    That is, if the object was heading straight at you, it's tail would stretch out to the side.
    (Think Donald Trump's hair blowing in a crosswind).

    On July 23, this Long March 5 heavy-lift rocket rose from China's Hainan Island Wenchang Satellite Launch Center. It carried an orbiter, lander, and rover on the ambitious Tianwen-1 mission to Mars.

    Tianwen-1 was the second of three missions scheduled for a July departure to the Red Planet. The United Arab Emirates launched its Amal (Hope) Mars probe on July 19. And NASA's launch of its Mars Perseverance Rover from Cape Canaveral is scheduled for July 30.

    Those are the last planned Mars launches for 2020 - the 'minimum-energy launch window' for a Mars expedition is coming to a close this year, and will reopen in 2022.

    This is a most opportune piece of information, sir - because my birthday just happens to fall in May.

    So pandemic or not, I'd better get out there and do some celebrating - because my birthday will not next fall in such a miraculous month for more than 800 years !
