You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Wander In Space Tee at

We posted this tee available for sale at that borrows from the old NASA logo to create this visual play on words. The quality above looks a bit low, but see the link for a better representation.
This is the second tee we are posting here and due to a simple address error, we have not received either product to do a review. Once that happens we will post.

Slow News Month (kind of)

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

I haven’t been able to keep up the site lately (and there really hasn’t been too much to post either). The intention is to continue the site as it had been maintained before the December slump after the new year.

Happy Holidays.

Pluto Tee

Hard to find nicely designed planetary items. Too late maybe for Xmas, but certainly not too late to get it in time for New Horizons flyby in 2015!

Smallsteps Wallpaper: Lunar Orbiter 3

Just a note that the “atmospheric” looking haze there is surely a camera artifact, but that is part of all the fun in these early space shot images. I dig the noise and the rough nature of these images.
