We are really thankful to count a true space pioneer to our team members: Jack Crenshaw. As part of the Apollo Programm he helped to develope the trajectory which enabled to land astronauts on the Moon and return them safely to the Earth.

Music Monday makes an appearance once again:
OkGo is famous for its spectacular music videos and the newest one is no exception. :D
The band used a parabolic flight to film this zero-gravity music video.

NASA just released some fantastical space tourism posters for travels to places like Jupiter, Exoplanets and Titan. What is your favourite one? And to which place of the galaxy would you like to travel? ;)

If you love stories about space and want to know how it feels like to be an astronaut grab this awesome new book by our friend Ariel Walman! We’ve already put in our pre-ordner and can’t stand the wait to get our hands on the first few issues :)

Have you been to an exhibition lately?
If you feel the wish to visit one about the journey to the moon, than have a look at this great project from the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. They selected several films of the Apollo Program from the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston and assembled this great online experience! :)
