Is the Moon hollow (and if so, why?).

The History Channel’s Ancient Aliens TV series examines the theory and evidence that supports the less-crazy-than-it-first-seems Hollow Moon theory in a clip from Season 11, Episode 11, entitled Space Station Moon. Actor David Niven wrote his auto-biography entitled The Moon’s a Balloon – did he have inside knowledge? Was he an alien, too?

Moon discovered in another solar system (yes: it’s the first exomoon).

Using NASA’s Hubble and Kepler space telescopes, astronomers have uncovered tantalising evidence of what could be the first discovery of a moon orbiting a planet outside our solar system. This moon candidate, which is 8,000 light-years from Earth in the Cygnus constellation, orbits a gas-giant planet that, in turn, orbits a star called Kepler-1625. Researchers […]

Failure is not an option. Or was it?

This makes for poignant reading after Neil Armstrong recently passed away from heart failure. It’s the U.S. President’s planned speech in the event the first manned landing on the moon went tit’s up and the astronauts died on the lunar surface (or in space on the way there). The last days of Camelot, it brings […]

The sleeping of the dream.

You’d have to be on Mars not to have heard that astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the surface of the moon, has sadly passed away aged 82 following a spate of heart illness. As much as his death, we mourn the sleeping of the dream of the manned exploration of space. […]
