Nowhere Warm, Thurat Walls Falls

The combined drop of the multitude of the segmented falls of the Oberon Plateau is about 370m (1200'). After heavy rain, every gully hosts a fall.

The First People of the Oberon Plateau, the Gundungurra, knew things we do not. They knew the ancient name of the rivers and the falls, they knew how to survive in impossible conditions, and they knew a medicant that, rubbed onto the body, protects it from extreme cold.

"Having previously made a large fire, they all went to sleep on the lee side of it without any article of covering. Nature appeared to compensate in some degree for this want with a covering of hair, which was particularly observable in the very old ones.. They appeared to suffer little or no inconvenience from change of weather, for they continued fast asleep during a violent shower of rain that lasted three hours, the thermometer standing at 39 (4 degrees centigrade)."
- W Wentworth, 1824

China Just Launched a Satellite that will Help Pave the Way for a Historic Mission to the Dark Side of the Moon

China launched a relay satellite on Monday as part of a groundbreaking program to land a probe on the far side of the moon later this year.

The satellite lofted into space aboard a Long March-4C rocket will facilitate communication between controllers on Earth and the Chang’e 4 mission, the China National Space Administration said on its website.

China hopes to become the first country to soft-land a probe on the moon’s far side, also known as the dark side because it faces away from Earth and is comparatively unknown.

The satellite, named Queqiao, or “Magpie Bridge,” after an ancient Chinese folk tale, was launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwestern Sichuan province, space administration officials said.

The launch is a “key step,” but the satellite’s mission must still overcome challenges including making multiple adjustments to its orbit, “braking” near the moon and using lunar gravity to its advantage, project manager Zhang Lihua was quoted as saying by the official Xinhua News Agency.
