No Math Coaching on 2/21:

Because it's winter break in our local schools, Basic Math Club and Advanced Math Coaching will not meet on 2/21.  We'll return to our every Tuesday schedule the following week.

Watch a satellite launch:

Giang Lam is my partner in leading Advanced Math Coaching.  He works in the aerospace industry and his company/team is involved in a satellite launch that is now scheduled for sometime next Wednesday (2/21).  It was scheduled for last week, but upper atmosphere weather patterns prohibited it.  To get updates on its status and to watch the actual launch live, go to Spaceflight Now.

After several weather delays, the launch occurred on 2/24/2012.  Here's a photo of the actual launch.
