Don’t Miss: Perseid Meteor Shower and a Rare Super Blue Moon

Saturn reaches opposition this month, meaning it’s at its biggest and brightest for the year, and visible all night. The “shooting stars” of the annual Perseid meteors are a must-see, overnight on August 12th. And this month brings two full moons – the second of which is a “Super Blue Moon.” What’s Up for August? See Saturn at dusk and dawn, the Perseid meteors return, and a “super blue moon.” In August, we’ve lost Venus and Mars from the evening sky, but we’ll have great views of Saturn all night. Saturn reaches opposition this month, meaning it’s directly opposite the Sun as seen from Earth. Planets at opposition rise just after sunset and are visible until dawn, and it’s when they appear at their biggest and brightest for the year. Look for the giant planet low in the eastern sky...

Boeing submits Artemis lunar lander proposition to NASA

Two weeks after a group drove by Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin divulged plans for a lunar lander, Boeing presented its very own proposition to NASA on Tuesday, offering a shuttle that would dispatch on the company's incredible Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and convey astronauts to and from the moon's surface with less flights. NASA's quick advancing Artemis program calls for sending astronauts to the moon in Orion containers propelled by SLS promoters as ahead of schedule as 2024. In the wake of docking with a little, remotely amassed space station known as Gateway, two space travelers would move to a monetarily assembled lander and drop to a touchdown close to the moon's south shaft. The space explorers at that point would take off, come back to Gateway and head home in their Lockheed Mart...

Elon Musk Just Couldn’t Remain Silent Regarding Jeff Bezos’ Moon Lander

On Thursday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' space organization Blue Origin displayed its arrangements to reach the Moon, including a brand new design for its "Blue Moon" lander. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk at that point took to Twitter to roughly suggest that Bezos was building unwarranted publicity for an arrangement that wasn't going anywhere — a move that could be read as a ultimate example of "pot calling the kettle black" irony. In the tweet, Musk states "Oh stop teasing, Jeff," alongside a winky face emoticon and a photoshopped picture of the lander with "Blue Moon" supplanted by the words "Blue Balls," a reference to the uncomfortable inclination that can follow sexual excitement without release. Possibly Elon Musk has never heard the proverb about how visionary CEOs who consistently ne...
