The Open University's Space Safari project - which allows schools to explore the Solar System online - has sent Jonti Horner to Mallorca and Jemma Davidson to Texas. The pair will be reporting back through the Rocks From Space blog.
Jemma will be reporting from the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston, while Jonti is Mallorca for the OU's Observing The Universe residential course, where students are getting the chance to use some serious telescopes to observe the night sky. Join them to see some great pictures from the observatories and hear about the latest developments in space research.
