Titan flash v.12. Herschel Space Observatory. Galaxy Zoo: Hubble. News Blog - Mike Lynch's "Exploding" Telescope. Here's a cautionary story about someone who was careful with his observing gear — and still got burned.

News Blog - Mike Lynch's "Exploding" Telescope

Some of you probably know (or know of) Mike Lynch, an avid amateur astronomer who hosts frequent star parties in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. He's the author of several skywatching books, writes a column for the Twin Cities' Pioneer Press, and hosts an astronomy website. You might not know that he's been a meteorologist for radio station WCCO for nearly 30 years. A week ago Lynch headed off to the radio station after observing the night before with his 14½-inch Starmaster Dobsonian. Pillow Astronaut. NASA-engineered collision spills new Moon secrets. Scientists led by Brown University are offering the first detailed explanation of the crater formed when a NASA rocket slammed into the Moon last fall and information about the composition of the lunar soil at the poles that never has been sampled.

NASA-engineered collision spills new Moon secrets

The findings are published in a set of papers in Science stemming from the successful NASA mission, called LCROSS for Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite. Peter Schultz and graduate student Brendan Hermalyn analyzed data from bits of the Moon’s surface kicked up by a NASA-engineered collision. They found unexpected complexity — and traces of silver.
