February 26, 2014 - You have to admire Elon Musk and his "musketeers" at SpaceX. They continue to show us a future for spaceflight which fits with our fantasies - reusable rockets that take off from a space port and return to Earth landing softly. Why NASA or other spacefaring nations haven't gone this route has been surprising.

It seems plants adapt to the weightless space environment and there appears to be no cosmic ray consequences. No human devouring "frankenplant" monsters arising from these experiments.
January 24, 2014 - I don't know about you but I am fascinated by what we are learning about Mars from the orbiters and rovers we have sent there. Curiosity is teaching us a lot but so is Opportunity as it continues to provide us with data from those instruments still functioning after a decade on the surface.
January 22, 2014 - Yesterday I wrote about the sudden appearance of a rock on a Martian photograph that in previous imaging was not there. Well we've learned a bit more about the rock but we still haven't solved the mystery of its sudden appearance.
