A human working at a Moon exploration company said these kind words for my newsletter moonmonday.jatan.space and supported it!

These are the things that keep me going through uncertainties as an indie writer. Thank you fellow lunatic. 🌗

Look at this Chang’e 5 Moon sample! 😍

I cover news about the samples, where to browse them, and more pictures in the latest issue of my Moon exploration newsletter moonmonday.jatan.space/p/issue

The most wild idea to terraform Mars is by NASA’s Jim Green and team: Place a strong magnetic field at Sun-Mars L1, where their gravities roughly balance, to reduce stripping of Mars’ atmosphere, get radiation protection, and allow us to pursue warming methods positively.

Good afternoon to everyone but @Medium@twitter.com for promoting this crap story right at the very top. More proof of Medium's algorithm reaching new lows.

RT @SpaceX@twitter.com

NASA has selected Starship to land the first astronauts on the lunar surface since the Apollo program! We are humbled to help @NASAArtemis@twitter.com usher in a new era of human space exploration → go.nasa.gov/3tur510

Just gonna leave this meme here along with @exploreplanets@twitter.com’ guides on why we need to go back to these Ice Giants.

This gorgeous feature, Ina, has Moon scientists polarized. Some say it’s 100 million years young while others say it’s 3.5 billion years old! In a new paper, scientists propose a mission to resolve the enigma, with implications for the Moon’s evolution. iopscience.iop.org/article/10. 🌗

Unlike Apollo, NASA’s Orion spacecraft will do a skip atmospheric reentry, like Chang’e 5, when returning to Earth after Artemis missions––a 1st for a human spacecraft. This will allow a more precise touchdown in the ocean compared to Apollo. More Artemis news in today’s issue.👇🏼

The fact that this topped the r/ISRO subreddit for the week, faring better than actual Indian space news, is depressing.

I’m sorry but this was called for.

– Subpar outreach makes it harder to share our country’s space exploration endeavors with parents, friends and relatives.
– As a science writer, I can’t adequately tell the world about our scientific achievements without apt resources.

With that, I leave you with the ultimate water on the Moon guide I wrote for @exploreplanets@twitter.com.

India’s Chandrayaan 1 orbiter scores another discovery. Scientists using its NASA M3 instrument have found that oxidation is happening on the Moon. On a place with no atmosphere!
The source of oxygen? Earth.

A reader from Italy supported me via my Buy me a Coffee page and we ended up talking about Italian pizzas and the kind we (don’t) get in India. The internet is awesome. ☺️🍕

Never going back to drinking stuff in fragile ceramics or glass. A steel mug with a middle layer of air insulation is pleasant warm to hold on the outside while keeping the beverage hot for longer. And the metal feels pleasant to the touch while having things like cold coffee. ☕️

Encouraging people to subscribe to my blogs via RSS instead of email. On the subscription page, I give a clear brief of how they can use it. And if anyone unsubscribes via email, they see the RSS link and the same instructions in the opt-out mail. Win-win.
