MUSK MAKES HISTORY: SpaceX just launched 2 people into orbit for the first time, kicking off the rocket company's most important mission since its founding 18 years ago

Astronaut David Scott re-created, in 1971 during the Apollo 15 mission, Galileo's "falling bodies" experiment by dropping a hammer and feather on the moon at the same time. Simply, both fell at the same rate because there was no air resistance. screengrab via Wonders of Physics/YouTube (Digg)

Clare Torry’s Rare Live Performances of “Great Gig in the Sky” with Pink Floyd

When Clare Torry went into the studio to record her now-legendary vocals for Pink Floyd’s “Great Gig in the Sky,” the centerpiece of 1972’s Dark Side of the Moon, neither the singer nor the band were particularly impressed with each other. David Gilmour remembered the moment in an interview on the album’s 30th anniversary: Clare Torry didn't really look the part. She was Alan Parsons' idea. We wanted to put a girl on there, screaming orgasmically. Alan had worked with her previously, so ...

Hip-hop legend Warren G treats SBVC football players struggling during pandemic to barbecue feast

SAN BERNARDINO – DeJuan Moon came back for seconds, heaping his foam clamshell container with chicken thighs, beef ribs, macaroni and cheese and baked beans. It would disappear into Moon’s 6-foot-1, 190-pound frame as quick as it appeared. And as soon as any of the items disappeared off the foil containers, more reappeared. Because no containers and no trays were allowed to stay empty for long. And no San Bernardino Valley College football players were allowed to leave hungry. “Take more. We’ve ...

The new documentary ‘Spacedrop’ takes viewers inside a simulated space quarantine

“The first Asian Jew in fake space” — that’s how Josh Burstein introduced himself to me when we hopped on the phone earlier this week. The fake space in question is the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS), where NASA has been periodically isolating teams of astronauts to study how they respond to the stresses of space exploration — and where Burstein was stationed last year. Now he’s releasing a 37-minute documentary special about that experience, called “Spacedrop.” The spe...

4.33-billion-year-old crystal linked to an ancient collision on the Moon

Researchers make new discovery in an Apollo 17 rock from 1972.The 4.33-billion-year-old sample reveals clues to the Moon's violent history.The Moon was likely bombarded by giant meteorites in its early days. Our Moon likely had a very violent past, reveals new research. A group of international scientists discovered that the ancient rocks of the Moon were likely formed as a result of impacts from giant meteorites. The scientists, led by researchers of the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), analyzed a ...

New evidence shows giant meteorite impacts formed parts of the Moon’s crust

New research on a rock collected by the Apollo 17 astronauts has revealed evidence for a mineral phase that can only form above 2300 °C. Such temperatures are uniquely achieved in melt sheets following a meteorite impact, allowing the researchers to link the 4.33-billion-year-old crystal to an ancient collision on the Moon. The study opens the door for many of the more complex rocks on the Moon to have formed in these destructive environments.

How do you get true bold and italics in Moon+ Reader?

I think Moon+ Reader is the very best in the Android e-reader business, for any format, because of the extreme flexibility it gives you when choosing your reading options. Want the status bar on top? Done. There are a thousand and one little options that make it a serious e-reading app. But Moon+ has a big niggle, and that is its inability to detect bold and italic variations of a given font.
