Mars Curiosity Landing Site Named Bradbury

Nasa announced yesterday that The Mars Curiosity landing site has been named Bradbury after literary legend Ray Bradbury who passed away in June of this year.

Henceforth known as Bradbury landing, the site unnamed until its official dedication and naming yesterday, which would have been Bradbury’s 92nd birthday.

All of this points, to me, to things being right with the world (and to the fact that if there was ever a time to buy a copy of The Martian Chronicles signed by Ray Bradbury, it’s now). Somewhere, I like to think Mr. Bradbury is very pleased by this turn of events.
