    Being one of the Gen-X old heads in dese parts, I’m old enough to have lived through Apollo astronauts driving dune buggies on the moon, the first color pictures and TV broadcasts live from Mars, the first real detailed pictures of the non-Jovian gas giants and their moons from Voyager (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune), the Space Shuttle and the Hubble telescope:









    But I still think, even with all that, New Horizons and it’s humble pics of Kuiper Belt objects are still the neatest space event in my lifetime. With a fucking orangutan running our country, it’s good to remember that there are intelligent women and men in government that can still get shit done BILLIONS of miles from Earth, with a device the size of a minivan!

    Hard to image that both Voyager probes, now nearly half a century old are still sending data to this day from interstellar space...with 8-track tape decks for computer storage. That 70’s Show ...

    As far as the Snowman. To me this is obviously two asteroids that have collided. Multiply that by a couple of thousand times and you may have a new planet form.

    The Voyager probes :lawd:

    Speak of the devil...

    China just landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon: state media

    China announced that it successfully landed a probe on the far side of the moon Thursday.

    “This space mission shows that China has reached the advanced world-class level in deep space exploration,” said Zhu Menghua, a professor at the Macau University of Science and Technology, the New York Times quoted. “We Chinese people have done something that the Americans have not dared try.”

    Menghua also claimed it was something “that the Americans have not dared try.”

    China landed a rover on the moon in 2013 but this is the first for a probe to land on the side of the moon that faces away from the Earth.

    The country said that it plans to fully operate a third space station by 2022 and to put their astronauts in a lunar base no later than 2032. They also intend to begin sending probes to Mars.

    “This is a major achievement technically and symbolically,” the Times quoted Namrata Goswami, an independent analyst who wrote about space for the Defense Department’s Minerva Research Institute. “China views this landing as just a steppingstone, as it also views its future manned lunar landing, since its long-term goal is to colonize the moon and use it as a vast supply of energy.”

    Yeah, the Trumptards will go military complex apeshit over this, when right-thinking people will be like, “Oh, China, you finally landed on the Moon A HALF FUCKING CENTURY AFTER NASA...”

    Also, the European and Japanese Space Agencies have been kicking ass with all their asteroid explorations, so don't want to be jingoistic. I’ve yet to see China do anything impressive, and I could care less about Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson rushing to put the first rich, Starbucks-swilling tourist fatass in orbit...
