Jupiter flyby video you have to see

This is gorgeous and mind blowing and worth every second and I am amazed.
Full screen this movie and hit play. Sound discouraged.
The creepy music was also used in a pivotal section of the movie 2001

Giant chamber on the moon

Yes, it is true, there is a giant sink-hole on the moon that was recently discoverer by the Indian Space Research Organization. This massive underground chamber exists near the moon’s equator. Apparently they seem to believe that it would be perfect for housing a moon base, or perhaps a giant Space Wyrm!

Discovered by the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, this chamber is more than one mile long and 393 feet wide. There would be lots of benefits of building a moon base in there, mainly for protection from the nastiness of the surface of the moon. It’d provide a nearly constant temperature of -4 degrees Fahrenheit, unlike the surface, which fluctuates between 266 degrees and -292 degrees. And it would provide protection from radiation, micro-meteor impacts and dust.

Yeah, that’s what we thought too!

Bomb the Moon!

No, really, Bomb the Moon

Quite frankly, given this country’s previous administration penchant for randomly bombing foreign countries, you would have think that this was something that they would have developed. Still, you’d be wrong, because it is not that kind of bombing.

Astronomers and space enthusiasts around the world watched as Nasa sent a rocket into the lunar surface.

The 2.2tonne rocket that launched the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) created ‘a dimple’ a third the size of a football pitch on the Moon at 12.31pm (BST).

The LCROSS probe followed four minutes later. It detected the heat signature from the first crash although no flash was immediately evident. It searched for ice and water before colliding with the surface.

It will have relayed this data back to Earth including pictures from the onboard cameras. Anyone can watch analysis of the event online through the Nasa TV website.

You can read a long, dry and probably boring article here (and Walt probably will), or you can just watch this vid and get the highlights. Still, it is worth at least scanning the article, as it does have some cook images attached to it.
