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.

Slow News Month (kind of)

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.

    How about a monthly feature, like “satellites going up this month/year”? Or “Planetary probes (hurhur) this year”, detailling the missions that are past the planning stage and being readied for blastoff in 2008?

    Also, why does your front page say “No comments” to this entry? ;(

    i was actually thinking of doing such a thing… for instance the coming cassini fly-through an Enceladus plume. as for the “no comments”… it only says that until there are comments to link to. i moderate comments due to spam, which i am considering not doing anymore as the forced-form-field you seem to dislike so much is about 99.9% effective in stopping blog-spammers.
