Results of Two Polls

Two polls posted on this blog have closed relating to preferences for the next New Frontiers mission and whether to post full or summary posts to news readers.

The preferences for the next New Frontiers post have remained fairly steady for most the several months that the poll was open:

South Pole -- Aitken Basin Sample Return
  21 (9%)
Venus in Situ Explorer
  71 (31%)
Comet Surface Sample Return
  22 (9%)
Network Science
  9 (3%)
Trojan/Centaur Reconnaissance
  19 (8%)
Asteroid Rover/Sample Return
  25 (11%)
Io Observer
  38 (16%)
Ganymede Observer
  21 (9%)

Votes so far: 226 

NASA is saying that it will announce the selection of two to three candidate missions for further study in January.

Reader preferences for posting to news readers was over whelming:

  9 (15%)
Full posts
  48 (84%)

Votes so far: 57 

I have set the site settings to full posts.  Please let me know if there are any hiccups.
