A radio telescope on the far side of the Moon would be free of Earth's radio noise---and have a much clearer view!

Researchers are making strides on a radio telescope array that would be unfurled on the farside of the moon by an unmanned rover operated by astronauts hovering nearby at a gravitationally stable point in space.

What do you do 'once in a blue moon'? The next one is Friday! #BlueMoon
 
On Friday, much of the world will have the opportunity to observe a Blue Moon: A somewhat rare occurrence that doesn't have anything to do with the moon's color.

In honor of last week's #NationalJunkFoodDay , we decided to ask: what are the favorite snacks of the Google Lunar XPRIZE teams? What helps rocket scientists and bold explorers keep going, at 7pm on a Saturday in the lab?

We got Bourekas, Red Bull, Hummus, Moon Cheese, and more! See all their favorites here:

A mission to Cruithne and a water well on the moon. The ideas of importance, resisting good ideas only puts you behind.

A base on the Moon could be 10x cheaper less than expected---thanks to commercial efforts like the #GLXP teams! #NewSpaceRace

Humans could return to the Moon in the next decade and live there a decade after, a new study claims. The announcement was made on the 46th anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew's first steps on the...

+Gustafsson Eric I tend to favor boring out large caverns, then. Three Dee printing a village inside the regulated atmosphere. Underground is protected from radiation and meteorite impacts.

Today is a #BlueMoon! Which, is the second full moon to occur in any one calendar month.

(Or, more specifically, the third full moon in a season that has four---summer/winter in this case, depending on your hemisphere!)

You see, there's usually just 12 full moons in a year (one per month), and three in a season, but occasionally we get a cool, rare bonus full moon (because a 'lunation', at 29.53 days, is actually a touch shorter than a typical calendar month). So, enjoy the extra full moon today!

Ever heard of the Gregorian calendar.

I am sure you have. Islam and Jewish religions use this type calendar regularly.

I could also say so do the Catholics unknowingly.

point is which calendar.

but of course you will say this should be obvious.

either way it's not something unusual.

blue however is.

The MX-1 from Moon Express is set to land on the #Moon, & then fly 500m over the lunar surface. Will the robot's donut-shape play to its advantage? Stay tuned... #GLXP #NewSpaceRace

Welcome to the new space race.
Introduction
The Google Lunar X PRIZE is a $30 million competition for the first privately funded team to send a robot to the moon, travel 500 meters, and then transmit video, images and data back to the Earth; incentivizing space entrepreneurs to create a new era of affordable access to the Moon, and beyond.
