etheria said: one time a reporter told buzz aldrin that he should admit the moon landing was fake and aldrin punched him in the face. and this wasn’t that long ago.

Yup.  True fact.  But it’s kind of commonly accepted that you just don’t tell someone who landed on the Moon that it’s bullshit, because then they have to punch you in the face.  For their honor.  It’d be like challenging Buzz Aldrin to a duel.  A Moon duel.  With Moon rules.

Point and Shoot
Nautilus Magazine

I made this piece for an online article about Lagrange points. I wanted to make a simple image that would help readers visualize the points (they resemble “the points of a drawn bow”) as they read the article. I was working on this at the same time as my Station Zero piece, so I was neck-deep in vintage sci-fi art reference. :)

Holy shit, you guys.  Apparently, when I was little, my grandmother came across a folder of a bunch of old NASA (press release?) stuff from the 70s that used to belong to my grandfather, and thought I might like to have it.  I didn’t appreciate it at the time, so I just squirreled it away in the bottom of one of my desk drawers.  But now I appreciate it SO HARD.  I found the folder when I was cleaning out my old room.  Totally unexpected.  There’s a bunch of Apollo 16 stuff.   And a booklet about Viking I.   And other stuff.   Hnnnnngh.  I’ll probably post some more scans when I have time, but for now:  There are these stickers.

Japan Makes Awesome Anime of Their Latest Rocket Launch with NASA

Today the NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched a Japanese H-IIA rocket with the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory onboard. The joint mission will collect data to map global rainfall and snowfall every three hours. And there is an awesome anime about that. Because Japan.

I refuse to believe this is not a 100% factual representation of how every joint JAXA / NASA space project works. I’m pretty sure NASA gives their people special quasi-futuristic NASA clothing like that for when they travel to Japan.
