Jim Irwin will always be remembered as the astronaut who walked on the moon and discovered God. Upon his return from space, he would try to find Noah's Ark amongst many other biblical projects. Sadly, he was also the first of the twelve moonwalkers to die.
The fourth man on the moon was nicknamed "Sarsaparilla" because he never touched a drink. He was a methodical, meticulous man who always dotted the I's and crossed the T's. He was also the only astronaut whose private passion was for painting.
Since the earliest days of computers, scientists have looked into their potential for simulating the cosmic processes that led to the creation of the near limitless amounts of galaxies in the observable universe. The shortcomings of previous computer technology limited their practical applications in this regard. However, thanks to the levels of processing power offered by modern computer hardware, along with refinement in algorithm scripting, simulations are reaching a point where they can begin to accurately replicate the mathematical values involved with the development of an individual galaxy. What’s more is that computer technology is advancing exponentially, meaning that progress is accelerating at a truly impressive rate.
This article is food for the mind decorated with thoughts that will make you wonder about what exactly is above your head. The past few years when looking in the sky I have noticed that some new stars shining in the sky. These are not just ordinary stars but shine in different colors. It is a known fact that some stars with different colors that shine brightly and sometimes shine with a fading to them. What makes these stars so noticeable is a simple fact that they are different.
A cosmonaut found himself floating calmly in the void of space. He was relaxed, his fingers locked behind him, cradling his helmet, legs crossed and supported by one another. He drifted freely and at ease through the endlessness. At this particular moment he was half awake, suspended between waking reality and altered levels of consciousness. Spending so long drifting had allowed the spaceman to become not only an explorer of the cosmos but also of his mind. He had become skillful at manipulating his mind and perceptions on higher and expansive levels. His current state was one of his favorite places to be mentally; it was a fun swinging feeling between two worlds, on one end reality, on the other his own unconscious, a plethora of worlds. A blurred line between what was, and what wasn’t. But he was not interested in either of these polar points currently. He was busy examining his state suspended of perception, observing, thoroughly, all around him, the void.
NASA is the epitome of can do attitude. It prides itself on getting the job done and done well, so how come duct tape has played such a major role in the space program to date?
Are you ready to make your mark in outer space on an orbiting habit? Are you interested in seeing a permeant presence in space? Do you want to be able to support this vision of future? Well, Asgardia The Space Kingdom is waiting for you. Asgardia is not a place as of yet but its founder is now creating plans for a future space colony envisioned like something out of science fiction.
When we think of NASA, we usually think of things like spaceships, astronauts, and Tang. However, the founders of NASA were less like the nerdy scientists you are used to seeing and more like juvenile delinquents. You may be surprised to find out that the founders of NASA were actually involved in things like wild sex parties, occultism, and public indecency?
As pretty much everyone knows, we have almost reached the point of no return on the consumption of our planet's resources. This can be proven with a simple google search. What you will find in that search is that every six months we use all the resources the world can naturally reproduce in a year, meaning every year's worth of resources takes two years for the planet to reproduce. So with this in mind, we as a species have turned towards the stars to look for a new home. The problem is other planets are light years away; for those that do not know, a light year is the distance which light can travel uninterrupted in a year. With light travelling at 186,000 miles per second, it's quite a distance. Now scientists say since we are a solid object moving through space, we will never achieve lightspeed, but could come within a few decimal points of it, which is awesome; but then we are left with a few other problems.
Man has always had a desire to explore. The Earth was the first place to explore. Christopher Columbus explored and discovered North America. Lewis and Clark traveled across America in search of the Northwest Passage. Within the last fifty years, mankind has been setting its sights on a new frontier to explore: space. The government has been providing funding to explore outer space. There is just one problem: it is expensive. The government funds a lot of organizations and some would argue that space is a waste of money, but that is not true. Money is supposed to be used on relevant things and this is one of them. Space exploration is a good use of the government’s money.
When you’re little, you think you’re invincible. You think that when you grow up you’ll be a super hero or world-famous. It’s not uncommon to for people to ask questions like: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?' The common answers you’ll hear are: fireman, police officer and astronaut. I was definitely one of those "astronaut kids." Who am I kidding? If you asked me today, at 26 years old, what I would like to be when I’m older, I would still tell you I want to be an astronaut. I’m a space-nerd. I love all things astrophysics, jet propulsion and space shuttles. I’m sure you could imagine my excitement when I was invited out to NASA Marshall in Huntsville Alabama this past February to tour their facilities and get a behind-the-scenes look at the flight hardware for the Orion Stage Adapter!
A UFO sighting on the Moon is making the rounds in Europe with photos taken by an amateur astronomer showing what looks like a black triangle spacecraft hovering above the surface of the Moon.
