It may be a little late to plan your 2016 summer vacation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t lay some groundwork for next year. Whet your travel appetites by dreaming of attending the Great Wildebeest Migration in Tanzania and Kenya in May and June or the annual North Padre Island Sea Turtle release in Texas, or book your airfare to visit the Atacama Desert in Chile, where astronomy buffs can catch some of the clearest skies in the world. Bon voyage, nerds!
