* COUNTDOWN BEAGLE - ADVENT CALENDAR *|
Finished off the ECA today! Had to really, because the mailings for S269 and S365 have been sent out - and I really must get on with those courses if I can. I might have to look at the ECA again, although I think it might be good enough - I hope so.
Done the map-reading stuff and have just completed Chapter 4. I find it rather difficult to differentiate between the altitude colours on the map (totally different answers to the questions than I should've had!) - but apart from that, all is coming together nicely! I am totally amazed by the sizes of the volcanoes on Mars! A volcano (Alba Patera) with a base diameter of 1200 km - incredible!
The books arrived yesterday and I'm already nearly through Chapter 3 of the coursebook - just can't stop reading - seriously interesting!
