A neat article about some of the moons in our solar system.  I learned a lot.  This info needs to be more well known in order to spur the public’s support for space exploration. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Apparently the Earth has picked up a new moon…a mini-moon.  Story here.  This is apparently not uncommon.  Space is endlessly fascinating.  We need to get the heck out there, quick. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
