XS-1: DARPA's Experimental Spaceplane ... "The XS-1 is a space plane under development by the U.S. military's high-tech agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The major goal of the project is to reuse the spacecraft frequently, with a proposed launch rate of 10 missions in just 10 days.

DARPA's concept follows decades of reusability dreams by space advocates. The space shuttle is the most famous operational attempt at reusability, but that system could only be partially recycled. For example, new external tanks were manufactured for every mission, and a certain number of tiles on the re-entry protection system had to be replaced after each flight.

The XS-1 (Experimental Spaceplane 1) is envisioned to heft payloads for less than $5 million a flight, each weighing between 3,000 and 5,000 lbs. (1,360 to 2,267 kilograms). The aircraft-like craft is also supposed to fly faster than Mach 10, or 10 times the speed of sound. ..."

Halley's Eclipse: a coup for Newtonian prediction and the selling of science (via @NewfusionApps #Science News)
300 years ago, on the 3rd of May 1715, a rare solar eclipse occurred over England. It was an opportunity too good to miss for those promoting new astronomical theories – and their own careers.

On 3rd December 2012 aligned 3 planets (Mercury, Venus and Saturn) on the three Great Pyramids heads in Egypt, the Phenomenon repeated just once each 2737 years.
I called this phenomenon 

"The 2737 Egyptian Astronomic Phenomenon" 

In this paper I present the proof that the 2737 Egyptian Phenomenon Cycle  depends on the Moon Metonic Cycle!
And then in the 3rd Chapter I'll discuss how the three planets (Mercury, Venus and Saturn) depend on the Earth- moon orbit in their motions! 
In this introduction I'll refer just to  some interests we got by the 2737 Egyptian phenomenon. 
Some interests we got by 2737 Egyptian phenomenon:
 First we know that the Pyramids builders recognized the different astronomic cycles, and especially 2737 phenomenon, for that they built just 3 pyramids at its parallel line.    
 Second, we know that the Pyramids builders knew the relative distances between the planets and built the pyramids at their rates! 
 Third where the 2737 phenomenon repeated on 3rd December 2012 for the third time, so the Number 8211 years is important number for human  life or at least for the pyramids age. 
 Fourth, I may claim that the Pyramids builders built the three Pyramids specifically for the 2737 Egyptian phenomenon.  
 Note: The Great Pyramid Height is 5776 Egyptian inches = the distance between the Sun & Pluto (each inch = 1 million kilometer) (continued) 

The Paper is here

Feel free to correct my thinking. I'm thinking that because the people on the ISS are in a somewhat synchronous orbit around the Earth, that they would age a bit differently than if they were further away, going away from the Sun. Yet, I don't have any information to back up those ideas. How far off am I???

It seems that Supernovas are only concerned about themselves and that nothing else matters. They just want to "show off", one last time... /sarc

I'd still give it a try.
The irradiated particles that compose these galactic cosmic rays are mainly remnants of past supernova events.

Europe's Next Space Chief Wants a Moon Colony on the Lunar Far Side ... " COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — The incoming leader of the European Space Agency is keen on establishing an international base on the moon as a next-step outpost beyond the International Space Station (ISS).

Johann-Dietrich Wörner expressed his enthusiasm for a moon colony at the Space Foundation’s National Space Symposium, a gathering of global, commercial, civil, military and "new space" experts that was held here from April 13 to April 16.

"It seems to be appropriate to propose a permanent moon station as the successor of ISS," Wörner said. This station should be international, "meaning that the different actors can contribute with their respective competencies and interests."

Wörner said that "the moon station can be an important stepping stone for any further exploration in deep space," adding that a lunar outpost could help humanity learn how to use resources on-site instead of transporting them.

"In any case, the space community should rapidly discuss post-ISS proposals inside and with the general public, to be prepared," Wörner concluded. ..."

As well as a farside base, I wave the flag for a smaller polar outpost.
1) All that lovely light!
2) Keep an eye on the Earth (good PR) - as a streamed service.

How many people think there are living beings on other planets in other galaxies... Maybe even our own galaxy, but a fair distance away. Waiting to see if we can achieve "Warp drive" or "EM Drive", to the point of leaving Earth.

Hi +Aner Ben-Artzi I'm familiar with the idea of a "Great Filter" but without evidence it's very much an interesting matter of conjecture, as is the Fermi Paradox.

If the moon keeps creeping away from the Earth, wouldn't that mean less tidal waves, or STRONGER tidal waves?

Last night, I was talking to my best friend , +mariah wheeler, about Messenger yesterday having crashed into Mercury. Here was the message, I figured that I'd share it on the community :) so here you go:

"Ok so yesterday around 9:00 PM (6 PM your time) NASA's Messenger spacecraft, traveling at around 2.5 miles a second (or around 9,000 miles an hour) crashed into the nightside of Mercury, leaving an apparent crater with an apparent diameter of around 50 feet. Now before you panic, the crash was intended and was apart of the mission. In fact, the Mercury-crash ended Messenger's 10-year long mission. Launched back in 2005, Messenger has taught us a lot about not only Mercury, but a lot about the nature of our inner solar system, and facts involving it that we had prior not known the answers to. After six years in orbit around the sun, Messenger entered orbit around Mercury in late 2011. It has taught us that Mercury, the nearest planet to the sun, the crater-shrewn dead world smaller than even Jupiter's moon Ganymede, has more similarities with Earth then differences. Of course, it's a little sad when you think about it. After 10 years of successful operation, flybys of the inner planets (excluding Mars), scientific study and picture snapping, just yesterday Messenger ended it's mission by slamming into the surface of Mercury. When I told my mom about this, she asked "why can't it return to Earth?" to which I answered "even if they wanted it to, it wouldn't have had enough fuel to leave Mercury's orbit AND return home, so they had it crash into Mercury." Messenger reminds me of the two Voyager spacecraft, both launched back in 1977, who, after a good run (exploring all four giant outer gas planets) are now flying out of the solar system, all alone, never to be seen again by the race that built them. They will float forever through the galaxy, symbols of our curiosity and interest of the cosmos. One day, they could even be picked up by extraterrestrials, and the golden record harboring representation of life on Earth and human culture will puzzle those aliens, not to mention that they'd be amazed to find something that we had built (the crazy thing is that we'd probably be wiped out by then), originating hundreds or even thousands of light years away."
"But anyway, back to Messenger. It is a common procedure to end a planetary orbital mission by having the spacecraft crash into the planet it is orbiting. Galileo crashed into the nightside of Jupiter back in 1995 (it barely penetrated the planet's atmosphere before flashing into a fireball). The Cassini spacecraft will plunge into Saturn's atmosphere in 2017, and it's been running even longer than Messenger and has relieved SO MUCH about the Saturnian system. Also in 2017, a year after NASA's Juno spacecraft (launched back in 2011) will achieve orbit around Jupiter, it too will dive into the giant planet's atmosphere to be destroyed once it has made thirty orbits around the planet and has done its scientific study of the Jovian system. I would imagine that NASA had their Magellen spacecraft, which orbited Venus from 1990 to 1994, crash into Venus's super-dense permanent clouds (that would the PERFECT way to go lol)."

+Jörn Helbert yes they were out of fuel. They decided to destroy the craft when they chose their orbit. Had they chosen differently, the craft would have been able to continue until the electronics or electric reaction motors gave out.

I strongly believe that there is other life in the universe. There are so many galaxies, solar systems, planets, there is so much out there!  There have been many UFO sightings, like the Roswell Crash. My favorite line from the movie "Contact" is "If it is just us, it seems like a big waste of space".

Because there is so much water and O2 in all star systems just forming you'd conclude yes but this is based on earth observations. Much to learn

I would soooo love it if all leaders in the world would embrace this..... Its what NASA should be doing as well as China, Japan and Russia.... The ESA can't do it without all of them on board writing the checks

The point of a moon base is roughly similar to the point of McMurdo station in Antarctica. Not just the immense benefit of geological timeline data or the freedom from magnetic belt interference; consider the fact that, to date the Antarctic Treaty is the one global initiative that has actually demonstrated succesfully that nations can in fact work together. By using Luna as a proving ground, humanity can increase its chances of success in colonizing the asteroid belt as well as Mars. If occupying Luna only brought an opportunity for all nations to work together in an environment wherein they are forced to rely on each other it would be well worth the cost.
