A-t-on marché sur la Lune? Oui, ce titre peu surprendre, mais la bêtise des gens, jeunes ou pas, me fait froid dans le dos. En allant sur « You Tube » il y a plusieurs semaines, je suis tombé sur un doc passé sur « Sci Fi » qui voulait démontrer que la mission Apollo 11 et les suivantes ne sont pas allées sur la Lune. Bien sur, cette vidéo est grotesque et les preuves qu’elle dit fournir sont absolument toutes fausses. J’ai donc laissé plusieurs commentaires pour essayer de rétablir les vrais faits de cette mission et surtout critiquer les âneries racontées par ce doc… mais hélas sans grand succès. Voici la vidéo passée sur SciFi 1-Les radiations, ils ont su s’en protéger : Dans le doc, on nous parle des radiations que l'on trouve dans l’espace comme celles de la ceinture de Van Allen. Encore une fois, on cherche à nous abuser. La ceinture de Van Allen est constituée de deux zones distinctes. 2-Les moteurs ne font pas de bruit dans l’espace : Pourquoi dit-il ça en nous montrant Saturne V au décollage ? Conclusion

Société Française d\'Exobiologie - Site Officiel Lunar Missions Ltd - Lunar Mission One Whether you are looking to be kept regularly updated on the progress of Lunar Mission One, or whether you want to influence the future of Lunar Mission One, the Lunar Missions Club is your key to being part of this historic mission. The Lunar Missions Club will be a community which, over the next ten years, will help guide this mission to success. Members of the Lunar Missions Club will be kept up to date with the latest mission developments, receiving exclusive newsletters and updates from the Lunar Mission One team. They will also be able to have their say on some of the project’s key decisions, such as the organisation and management of the public archive, aspects of the lunar landing module design and the roll out of the worldwide education programme. The club will be officially launched in 2015 but early-adopters can continue their discussions through our Kickstarter site until we launch the main club here.

So It Ends for Comet ISON - Comets Well, don't say we didn't warn you. As we hoped all along wouldn't happen, Comet ISON turned into a dud not a dazzle — a speck not a spectacle — a complete, unmitigated flop in terms of any kind of visual display for the world in the December dawn sky. But it sure was exciting while it lasted, and never more so than on November 27th and 28th as it approached and then passed through perihelion while spacecraft watched. Our web traffic spiked through the roof as we posted the ever-changing news to our ISON Updates page. Real-time science is incredibly thrilling in the internet age. Especially when a scientific team as dedicated as the Comet ISON Observing Campaign makes so much effort to keep the world abreast of developments as they happen. To recap: Comet ISON thwarted predictions at every turn. Then, as it disappeared down into the glare of sunrise for viewers on Earth, spacecraft took over. Scientists glumly pronounced near-obituaries on a live NASA webcast. Oh well. P.
