    Jim, this was a good show! And we can look forward to this rare event of planet Venus. Congrats to our astonomers for all their hard and dedicated work.

    I do wonder if we will ever populate another planet.

    thanks Jim and Kurtis for this wonderful story. We’ll be thinking of you through this great event.
