    EXHIBITS - WE WANT YOUR THOUGHTS!

    Hey MyMoon-ers! The MyMoon team has recently been brainstorming ideas for new exhibits to add to the website and we want your thoughts!

And second, what kinds of things would you like to see and hear about on this topic?... Thoughts? Ideas? Let us know! We also ...

    EXHIBIT SOME INTEREST, PEOPLE!

    Here at MyMoon HQ, we’re always looking for new ideas. This of course includes new exhibits! One idea for a future exhibit is “We Did Go”. No, not “Did We Go?” (although the exhibit could very well discuss some good ‘ol conspiracy theories). As we say in our lovely site disclaimer, we’re not here to argue or change your mind (however, we won’t object if we do). We operate off of the truth that ...

    STS-118, FACEBOOK-ANGLE EDITION

    If you've ever stood aiming your camera at your own face snapping pictures from progressively higher and higher angles in order to "look your best" then you know what I'm talking about. It's okay, we've all done it or we all know someone guilty of doing it on the regular. So imagine my amusement when our Space Shuttle STS-118 had a kind fellow shoot video from the highest ...

    THE 1966? END OF THE SOVIET REIGN

    On a recent tour of Mission Control at Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, I heard an interesting story. A story about a brilliant designer named Sergei Korolev. Back in the day, any knowledge of said visionary was top-secret. After all, he developed the world’s first intercontinental ballistic missile. Korolev also supervised payloads for Sputnik, Luna, Venera, and Vostok. His leadership ...

    WELL TICKLE ME SILLY...

    A very nice person wrote a very nice blog entry about MyMoon. The author of this blog also just happens to be a member of the MyMoon community! What's this MyMoon community I speak of? I'd tell you but that wouldn't be any fun. You should look at it yourself. ...

    DOES ANYONE ELSE NOT LIKE THEIR VOICE?

    I HATE mine! So why did I agree to do a podcast that could potentially be heard by millions of people? I don't know. I guess I think more people need to hear about MyMoon. And why not? It's a pretty cool site. I agreed to do the podcast in January but didn't ...

    CRAZYNESS!!

    I don't know how else to say it. Last night's webcast with Phil Plait was deliciously crazy! Over 160 peeps signed in to chat with Phil, and we thank every single one of them. A big thank you goes out to Phil. He is either one excited human being, or a giant anthropomorphic sugar cube. Phil's got a lot of energy, but he obviously loves what he does. Those of you who have participated in a ...
