Want some perspective? Here is the Earth and Moon, as seen from Mars.
NASA is aiming to do some dope shit in the 2020s. Expecting to launch spacecraft to study Jupiter’s asteroids, and also another one made of metal. Sounds dope! I’m, uh, just not optimistic about us/them making it until then.
Fuck! Looks like today’s posts are all about space. How is this, how is this for your astronomical-prostate? Astronomers have spotted a double ring galaxy. Yeah, it’s rad, right? Yeah, it’s rubbing right up against the space-gland, innit?
Mars got itself some gorgeous craters, with some gorgeous hued slopes.
Well, I saw goddamn. I already thought that space was bad ass. But apparently there are structures out there called “megamasers”?! Tremendous.
Man, Saturn is decently away from the Sun. Like, you know. 888.2 million miles. But that doesn’t mean sunlight can’t illuminate its north pole.
The Sun was straight celebrating the end of the year, too. Sending some energetic particles to smash into the Northern Lights in Canada.
Ain’t no seasons in space. None, none at all. But that don’t mean its gorgeous glimpses don’t provide invocations of places, times, and specific sentiments. Like a Winter Wonderland.
Bummer! Big bummer for the European Space Agency. Images provided by NASA suggest that the ExoMars lander exploded as it attempted to land on the Red Planet.
