Artemis IV: A new hope.
Thread.

RT @DrPhiltill@twitter.com

Listening to the NASA Lunar Exploration Forum. It is awesome to hear @torybruno@twitter.com talking about a post-scarcity future for civilization as we move industry off-Earth into space beginning with the Moon.

Mars has been getting a lot of attention for over two decades now. But one must not forget that there are other fascinating worlds out there, worthy of dedicated missions to answer fundamental science questions.
This was probably the longest caption to presenting a ever.

Ceres can be The Moon equivalent of the outer solar system for settlements. Not Mars.

Mystery Solved 🧐

Bright areas on dwarf planet Ceres come from salty water underneath. Data from @NASA_Dawn@twitter.com answer two long-unresolved questions: Is there liquid inside Ceres, and how long ago was the dwarf planet geologically active? go.nasa.gov/2DNYKh1

Time to start voicing for a planetary status for Ceres too.

Someone just referred to me as Moon Mehta, and I’m gonna take this as a compliment. 🚀🌝

Also true for Moon to the asteroid belt vs. Mars to the belt.

Nice graphic about putting refueling depots in various cislunar locations. (However, Nichols Bennet of @ACSERUNSW@twitter.com recently showed that Moon-to-Geostationary Transfer Orbit [GTO] Direct is also economically viable.) twitter.com/nyrath/status/1292

ISRO's Chandrayaan 1 made headlines when it confirmed the presence of water on the Moon. I interview its Mission Director for @SuperclusterHQ@twitter.com about his role in the mission, forging a partnership with America, and India’s future in space. 🚀🌔

While life on Earth was taking shape and spreading over 3 billion years ago, Mars was rapidly losing its atmosphere and water. NASA's MAVEN is a dedicated mission to investigate that.
My latest for @exploreplanets@twitter.com. It's so much fun. writing for them :D

Whoa! A planetary scientist supported me on Patreon. :D
This is so reassuring given my desire and efforts to explain science of space missions to the public!
