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.

Having a lot of fun writing tomorrow’s issue of my Moon exploration newsletter. 🤓

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.

Gold. 😂

One day, all the other space entrepreneurs might be called elons, but Elon Musk will still be called Elon with a capital E since it was his proper name before becoming a category word for all the other ones. The same for the Moon always getting a capital M. twitter.com/elonmusk/status/13

Hi everyone, I’ve been working on an idea of a new kind of social network that incentivizes thoughtful conversations by design!

I’d love to hear what you think. Think of it as Twitter, but without the drama, spamming and thought bubbles. Details👇🏼

For the last few months, I’ve been working on an idea of a new kind of social network that encourages thoughtful conversations by design → personal.jatan.space/p/introdu

I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

I’d always be sad to not have seen Apollo happen. I was wrong. The next few decades are the best time to be alive. Huge congratulations to @SpaceX@twitter.com, @elonmusk@twitter.com, Gwynne Shotwell and the entire team. And to NASA for making a truly bold decision. Let’s explore the solar system. 🚀

SpaceX Starship won’t dock with Gateway. Gateway will dock with Starship.

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

Insightful piece by @benthompson@twitter.com on the global context of India’s growing digital infrastructure. It’s fascinating to me that a physically outside observer helped me understand said dynamics better than those here could.

NASA’s twin Voyager spacecraft are popular for using Jupiter’s gravity to be on trajectories that will take them outside the solar system. Here are some other missions which have made daring space maneuvers too but aren’t as well known.

New article! Daring maneuvers in space 🛰
– Ulysses using Jupiter to go over the Sun
– The comet chaser @ESA_Rosetta@twitter.com’s “Billion Euro gamble” at Mars
