LATE ADDITION: The Mars "Insight" probe has landed successfully on the Red Planet. For a look at what that means, and plenty of ways to connect, see daily photos from the surface of Mars, videos of many mission and design aspects, and what's ahead for planetary exploration, our pre-landing edition is still here, just below, with a wealth of clickable links.
The FOLLOWING is the edition as originally published before the landing.
On this date in 1865 “Alice in Wonderland” was published in America. Of that anniversary, Lionel of "Lionel Media" observes, "how apropos that was and is as we slither down daily the rabbit hole: Defined as entering into a situation or beginning a journey that’s complex or chaotic."
Talk about multiple applications, down through time. The sorta thing artists love.
