Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It's NASA's Man of Steel!
With nerves to match. Astronaut Greg Chamitoff has found yet another move to stave off the loss of the Exchange. Now it is up to the "wizards of the coast" to find an appropriate reply for YOUR consideration.
The youngsters from Stevenson Elementary School are expected have to have their choices available late tonight (in west coast US time), so Earth's inhabitants can vote for our 13th move.
Check back tonight and see if the K-3 National Champions have found a piece of Kryptonite to use against the man from outer space!

If you want to be more ready when the voting choices appear, you can move the pieces freely to analyze in the Chess Viewer and try to find that piece of Kryptonite yourself!
By the way, this isn't the only game Greg has in progress. He also has games with six Mission Control Centers around the world, and you can view those games in the Chess Viewer by clicking on "Game List."
