Sure, we need scientists in academia. But, let’s not forget that: We need scientists in industry We need scientists in government We need scientists in journalism We need scientists in law We need scientists in policy ...and so much more! There is a world beyond academia.

Happy birthday to Vera Rubin: the mother of our dark matter Universe "Don't let anyone keep you down for silly reasons such as who you are, and don't worry about prizes and fame. The real prize is finding something new out there." -Vera Rubin

Almost everyone seems to have forgotten (including the Indian space agency!) but India also has a spacecraft orbiting Mars. The Mars Orbiter Mission is in its 5th year of a planned 6-month mission.

The glacier "Ok" used to be a glacier but lost its status as such in 2014 when it had shrunk too much. This is a brand new memorial shield in its honour.

The Apollo 11 mission patch: No American flag. No space hardware. No Astronaut names. In that regard, unique among space emblems. Affirmation that walking on the Moon was an achievement of the human species, to be shared by all.

"The Eagle has landed…"πŸŒ•πŸ¦… Apollo 11 completed President John F. Kennedy's goal of landing on the moon by the end of the decade. Nearly 650 million people watched Armstrong's televised image as he took "...one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" on July 20, 1969.

Or we produce synthetic kerosene using CO2 from the air and water as the feedstocks, allowing a drop-in replacement of fossil kerosene without the need to refit every aircraft on the planet. US Navy has a pilot project doing just that.

except when they said they would begin deep-space exploration and then failed to fund it in every single administration since bush senior. don't expect this administration to be much different - the money doesn't look forthcoming.

it's true that other soviet launch vehicles were developed during the space race, but they are still using R-7 derivatives to launch astronauts to the ISS.

just compare the first two orbital launch vehicles, and the first two crewed orbital vehicles (soviet L, US R). not only are the soviet vehicles larger, they're basically the same.

In the 50s, the Soviets couldn't downsize their nukes as well as the Americans, and were forced to manufacture larger (read:orbital-class) icbms to lift the same megatonnage. they had large boosters ready at the start of the race, the Americans had to start from scratch.
