At the buzzer!!!!!!!!
For the moment, forget SPB, forget the Hubble breakdown, forget it all. A couple of match ups came down to a few last minute votes.
IF the results hold (and they should,) Voyager 1 & 2 beat Cassini by 29 votes and Expedition 1 beat MRO by 84 votes. Throughout the day, these missions swapped leads and battled for advantage. You can whine about SPB and multiple voting all you want, but there was drama at 11:59pm, and it was AWESOME!
Congratulations to everyone, and specifically to Voyager 1 & 2 (Vger lives) and Expedition 1. You fought hard and won!
On a sad note, Apollo 13 gets bounced. Hubble?!? What happened?
Well, you get one day to rest, and then back to voting. Although, SPB can probably take a few extra hours off and still win.
Round 3 should be fun.
Check out the match ups and then get ready to vote.
Apollo 11 vs LRO
Freedom 7 vs Mars Pathfinder
