TMJ is now Planetaria!

PLEASE NOTE: This blog formerly known as The Meridiani Journal is now Planetaria (http://planetaria.ca)! TMJ was first started in 2005 when the primary planetary exploration missions at the time were the Mars rovers Opportunity (landing in Meridiani Planum) and Spirit. Now there are many different missions happening as well as thousands of exoplanets being discovered, so the new name is a better and simpler reflection of that. The old domain for TMJ still works and now redirects to Planetaria, as well as all previous links.

Blog update: new theme, image galleries, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pocket

I’ve been revamping the blog a bit again, with a new WordPress theme, Retina, and a few other additions. The theme is nicely responsive for smartphone and tablet screens. I’ve updated the header image for a new look. I’ve tidied up the image galleries and will add more as I can. I’ve added a “Pin it” button to images, which shows up on the images themselves when you hover over them, for faster posting to Pinterest. Also, in the social sharing footer on posts, I’ve now added Pocket for easy saving of posts. The “about” pages have been updated too. I’m still tweaking things a bit, but this is the basic idea. There is also now a LinkedIn group page as well as an Instagram for the blog!
