There is no dark side of the moon

Recommended Posts

Scientists have discovered a 25-mile crater produced during the UK’s worst ever asteroid impact and warned ‘there’s a possibility’ of another space rock causing a similar level of destruction in the future. Evidence of the ancient disaster was first found near the Scottish town of Ullapool more than a decade ago, but the huge hollow left behind by the 13 billion ton space rock has now been pinpointed.

Just been to see Apollo 11 at the IMAX. Incredible viewing, the launch sequence was ferocious!  

Amazing to see so much footage that's remained in the vaults for so long. It really didn't look or seem like 50 years ago.

It's always the footage you've never seen before that amazes.

 

I watched the Senna film in Spanish and still thought it was great even though i couldn't understand it, the cinematography is amazing. I expect this would be doubly so.

 

What the Imax was made for i would suspect.

Since 2007, astronomers have been finding very brief, powerful signals from across the cosmos in observations gathered by radio telescopes. In the past week, researchers pinpointed the location of a non-repeating signal for the first time, and two days later, another group announced they'd discovered nine more. The sources of these so-called "fast radio bursts" remains a mystery, but recently researchers have been honing their ability to locate their origins.

Would not get you half way across the Atlantic in a private jet alas. 60m for the flight I read. The us (Tito?) guy paid the Russians 20m and that was a good while ago when Russia was still wild.

Current tech (soyuz). In the next few years this is what Musk, Branson and to a lesser extent Bezos want to do. It'll be half a million to amillon quid in ten years. I'd charge them a fuckwad more than what's quoted. Tourists subsidising space missions and science. Damn right.

I should've clarified that the unseen 70mm film footage was taken on the ground.  Unless people are thinking NASA have CGI created Johnny Carson in a sun hat.

Just to repeat, all conspiracy theories are based in antisemitism.

Khazers aren't really Jews though, are they?

Aye, the "observable universe" just got a wee bit bigger than what we were able to observe before. It will account for a wee bit of the so called "dark matter" which can't, as yet, be explained. Don't know how much it will account for but maybe one day we might be able to explain it all away?
