Oh man, must be awesome to be an astronaut.

Although I read yesterday that they lost all comms with the ISS when upgrading some software. That must have been scary as [Censored].

I've always loved this video. There's a nice quietness about it, there's no reason for it, it's just a first person view of being in space (and messing around with Soyuz switches!).


This is also pretty cool. Mike Massimino is awesome.

If you want to survive out here, you've got to know where your towel is.

NASA have just released this:


This will be a human spaceflight mission in 2021, it will involve an unmanned probe capturing a small near-earth asteroid and bringing it into a high-lunar orbit (essentially giving the moon it's own moon) where it can be visited by a human crew.

It's a possibility that 2021s scheduled EM-2 mission, which was originally going to be an Apollo 8 style mission, may follow this architecture.

The asteroid itself would be very very small, smaller than the Orion crew vehicle, probably around 10 metres across.

Aw Sad still, this would be totally awesome, like something from a sci-fi movie. Nobody has ever seen an extraterrestrial object up close (of course apart from the burnt up meteorites), and nobody has been to the moon in god knows how long. Shove that alien rock in moon orbit and send people up there now! Razz I don't want to wait 10 years!

NO WAY!! THATS AWESOME!

To the NASA thing, it will be barely visible, but you'd need a telescope to see it, as its the same size roughly has the asteroid that flew by last month, and that was barely visible.

Awesome Idea, I hope this goes thru

I dunno if this counts
But I dunno about you guys, but I put on a pair of warmer clothes and have just waked outside and sat down, there is not a cloud in sight (despite that fact it's 7:35 pm), the stars are out (despite the street lights) and the moon is at (about) 85-95% full, it's absolutely beautiful and so peaceful!!
Just perfect
Gonna pull me telescope out again

The stars aren't exactly breathtaking in central Glasgow, but some nights it's nice.

Absolutely sensational seeing Stars properly. With no street lights or light pollution disrupting the beautiful view. Last time I saw that I was at RAF Elvington.

Phun phact:

Ping-pong balls are made of a stuff called celluloid, which is similar to gun cotton (aka flash paper, aka nitrocellulose). This is very flammable and is prone to ignition.

In fact, in the old days ping pong balls were made of acidified celluloid, which was even more unstable and could randomly ignite during a game; Over time, the composition would become increasingly unstable, and a slight spark (or even heat from friction) would ignite an old ball.
They also burn hot as heck.

If you cut a hole in a ppball, stuff it with another shredded one, wrap it in foil, leaving a hole, and ignite the inside, it'll create an awesome smoke grenade. (When I say awesome, I mean lots of fire and a bit of smoke)
