Not into one-ups-manship things, but here I succumb: I work in the
Ops Center of the Hubble project, and so much data goes through here I
see a small fraction of it...and when something IS put out for public
(ie, it's on the news, in the papers, etc) I typically don't know about
'til a friend or relative calls me up a week later to ask me about
I sit on the phone stupidly saying 'wha..?'

I get asked about all kinds of other space projects/missions all the
too. And have no clue about most of them.  :-(	No more than anyone
