Build your own: Phobos

I spotted a great post on the Planetary Society blog via Cosmos4u. Emily describes architect Chuck Clark's model for building your own Martian moon which he'll be presenting at the Lunar and Planetary Science conference next week. She presents a printable map of Phobos and then shows a photo-diary of her building it. The final results look pretty good. Fun for all the family!

Once you've made a moon you could try making models of INTEGRAL, SOHO, Mars Express, Mars Pathfinder, or ExoMars.

Cut-out

Hopefully someone (cough, cough, Pamela) might interview Chuck Clark for a podcast.
