  1. In the top photo, the gent holding up the left side of the birthday-card banner is Dr. Louis Friedman, executive director of the Planetary Society.

    He’s about to step down after 30 years in that job; the new executive director will be Bill Nye, the Science Guy.

  2. @Bill — Thanks for the identification. Dr. Friedman had been announced in the press releases as someone who was going to speak in favor of the resolution, but when I looked at his photo on the Planetary Society website I couldn’t convince myself it was the same guy.

  3. FWIW, I didn’t recognize Dr. Friedman either, and I had done volunteer work in his Planetary Society offices and saw him daily for a while — but I saw a picture of myself from 1984 a few hours ago and compared to a photo taken last week, I wouldn’t have recognized *myself*, either.
