There seems to be some genuine public interest and exciting private momentum in space exploration at the moment, much much more than any of us could have hoped for even 5 years ago. These are going to be real interesting times. Take a look at the line up of speakers at this computer game inspired event..........

Kepler Makes Discoveries Inside the Habitable Zone

NASA's Kepler mission has discovered two new planetary systems that include three super-Earth-size planets in the "habitable zone," the range of distance from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.

The size of Kepler-62f is now measured, but its mass and composition are not. However, based on previous studies of rocky exoplanets similar in size, scientists are able to estimate its mass by association. Scientists do not know whether life could exist on the newfound planets, but their discovery signals we are another step closer to finding a world similar to Earth around a star like our sun.

Want to go to Mars? Dutch organisation Mars One says it will open applications imminently. It would be a one-way trip, and the company hopes to build a community of settlers on the planet.

It's good to see Mars One building up some steam. Keep going guys. These are some exciting times.

Info graphic showing basic break down of the yet to be flown SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch vehicle. Quite a cool read, sounds like one hell of a monster. :-)
