ESA's Interactive Guide

The European Space Agency has an online interactive tool for you to become (re) acquainted with our Moon. See it at http://lunarexploration.esa.int/#/intro. The videos, documentaries and visuals make for stunning presentations. And perhaps make you want for even more. Maybe via an International Moon Village noted at "#ESAmoonguide". Enjoy!

This Project Apollo Archive was created by Kipp Teague on Flickr in 1999, and recently was updated with new versions of the original NASA photo scans.

Free Ride on the SLS

skyfireSo what do you do when you've got a giant rocket ready to launch but no payload? This apparently was the situation for NASA's Space Launch System team as they prepared for their maiden blast-off. Smart minds being what they are, the team opened up the faring availability. From this came the option for up to 13 CubeSats. Lockheed Martin, not being a slouch in anyway, offered SKYFIRE for free. This 6U CubeSat is destined to go to the Moon. There it will survey the landscape looking for water. Lochkeed Martin in exchange provides the data. Quite the amazing win-win scenario isn't it!
