Moon Cave!

Unknown

Hey readers. As you all know, I try to keep up with what’s happening with scientific developments, sci-fi lit and movies, etc. So I was pretty excited when I came across a cool article about a Japanese scientific team who discovered a huge cave on the moon. By all means click on the article and read more.

This is a big deal. A large cave of this type could form as a habitat for a manned lunar base- a goal that people like Elon Musk are working on as we speak.

It looks as if the way forward in space will be blazed by private concerns, as opposed to the big government programs of the past. There are a lot of things happening in this regard right now, from Space X to SpaceShipOne.

Most excellent.

Maybe we will see significant advances in space exploration and technology within our lifetimes. Dreamers are dreaming, and putting their visions into reality. It’s what humans do.

Writers imagined the future through science fiction, and fans who also turned out to be engineers, aerospace techs, physicists, billionaires and the like are turning the works into reality.

Super cool stuff.

  1. Always thought it made sense to have a base on the moon as a staging point for a mars venture. You could test the gear and save valuable fuel by not having to fight Earths atmosphere on the way out.
