These are the four ingredients you need to take some amazing photographs of the moon… as James Mitchell proves with these great images taken from his home in Berlin.
Berlin-based maker James Mitchell explains how he captured a detailed and close-up photo of the moon using a Raspberry Pi, Picamera, Canon EF lens, and a 3D printed lens adapter. The results are astonishing.

China is... well, China!!
China is launching a rival to the International Space Station, and it's partnering with the UN to let other countries have a go

Gentlemen, the space race has begun! Start your engines. 
We could live comfortably on resources just from space. But is it economical?

It seems like people minds are starting to malfunction after a long period of good times. Maybe a second Dark Age is what we desire after all. ....
 
Brexit vote rattles UK and European scientists
Because we all know that there was no funding for particle physics research before the EU became what it is today, and scientists from different countries were basically prohibited from collaborating.

And before everyone starts with comments about US or other single nation achievements in science let me remind you that top-level science can't be achieved by a single nation these days. If you truly think that, I recommend you go back to the 1700s.

Here's what the Brexit result means for science, particularly physics, in the UK and the rest of Europe.

Pink Robin
Endemic to the dense, temperate and tropical forests of southeastern Australia, the pink robin (Petroica rodinogaster) is a plump little bird that weighs just 10g. The species displays striking sexual dimorphism - only the males are decorated in that delicious candy hue, framed by a smoky black throat, head, and back. The plumage of the females is far more subdued, but they're just as adorable.

Pink robins might look very similar to the red-breasted European robin, but they're barely even related. The pink robin belongs to a family called Petroicidae, which contains 45 known species.

Unlike the European robin, known for its gregariousness, the pink robin is something of a shy bird.  It is notoriously difficult to photograph as it tries to keep itself as hidden as possible while it darts about for food.
