Re: Space Calendar - "Forthcoming Attractions" for 2004

I was browsing various threads earlier today and came across a request for any links to websites which give details of space activities for the year ahead. I know of one, an excellent one from JPL, but as I can't find the actual posting again I figure I'll just start from scratch. So, here you go, hope this proves useul to whoever asked the question...

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/calendar

There is a LOT of detail on here - anniversaries, launches, astronomical info, but it is an official JPL site, updated regularly to take into account slips in schedules and timetables etc. I find it an invaluable resource as a writer and Outreach educator.
