From DFR Technologies, this 1/92 scale kit of the Atlas V models the AV401 Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter / Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LRO/LCROSS) mission. Based around a BT-60 diameter tube, this nice-size rocket doesn't get lost on the launch rack with other models. It stands out because of its unique nose shape and lots of 3D printed parts on the rear end. The rocket also has a pre-applied color body wrap, which means this rocket is easy to finish, and looks awesome. It flies on just about any 24mm diameter motor, so it will give you a thunderous roar when it lifts off.

Tour the Moon Like You’ve Only Imagined: From the Earth to the Moon

I’m not crying, that’s just moon dust in my eye.

Heavily-booted human feet have not touched the surface of the Moon for four decades. But we continue to experience it, day after day, in the images brought to us by robotic stellar explorers. These images are as informative as they are inspirational.

The Center for Lunar Science and Exploration teamed up with NASA to create this simply wonderful fly-through of lunar geography. Thanks to the digital archives of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and many other previous missions, nearly every speck of the Moon’s surface has been captured in stunning detail.

Here, those images have been stitched into 3D fly-bys. None of these are artist’s representations or illustrations. Every image in this video is real. Full screen, HD, sit back and smile.

Let’s keep exploring, shall we?

Evidence of extraterrestrial life could be sitting on the Moon at this very moment [Space]
When you consider the utter vastness of space, it isn't hard to accept that, somewhere out there, extraterrestrial life probably exists. That being said, one can just as soon reason that the Universe is so immense, the odds of us actually finding evidence for the existence of alien organisms are probably pretty slim. Given the mind-boggling hugeness of the cosmos, where would we even begin looking for signs of life? More »
