Happy Solstice

A re-tread from 2012. Doesn't time fly?


A summer picture for the winter solstice. Which I'd forgotten until Amy reminded me.

This year's reminders from TPP and RM.


* Book of the New Sun. I still think Gene Wolfe does a better job of capturing the wonder of the Apollo programme with that brief paragraph that anyone else ever has.

Geologists greatly appreciate the returned rocks; as do astronomers and astrophysicists. Other physicists appreciate the various radar mirrors which were implaced by Apollo crews.

The single most important result remains the Blue Marble photograph.
