As you have noticed, this blog is no longer updated. I’m busy working but also reading all books and blogs out there. There are also plenty of movies and podcasts to watch or listen to. I will still update the below pages if you’re interested in what I’m following and reading online:
Space News – Sites, blogs and podcasts. More than I have time for.
Space Exploration – Unmanned space exploration.
The Night Sky – Get out there, watch it live!
Following all those sites, blogs and podcasts is what’s keeping me busy. And a few books and movies of course. I never intended to write articles of my own but to guide you to what is the most interesting in the ocean of information. This is it. Check out the above links and you’ll probably be as busy as I am. A good start but then you’re on your own 🙂
Last tip: WordPress! Full of excellent blogs:
The Science Geek
Rationalising the Universe
A movie made of pictures from the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A must see.

You think you know the first words spoken on the moon? Watch this video. Is this important? Not sure, but I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to post interesting facts about the greatest adventure in the history of mankind. Now it sounds more interesting, right? The original transcripts of the radio communication between Earth and the Moon is available at NASA. The video is from Scott Manley’s Youtube channel and I recommend you to check it out if you’re the slightest interested in space or computer games related to space.

Just a short reminder that you can find great documentaries out there. One is Lunar Documentaries. A channel with a couple of really good documentaries about the Moon and our exploration of it. Enjoy!
Update: this channel has been moving around lately. Kicked out of Youtube, moving to Daily Motion and now they are on Facebook:
