LunarClock.org Gives The Time And Date On The Moon

moonclock-s

LunarClock.org have devised a clock and calendar for the moon. Apparently, this was necessary because of the moon’s rotation and length of day is different than the Earth’s (or something like that). Anyway, the site’s FAQ gives some explanation.

1. What is the Lunar Calendar and why do I need one?

The Lunar Calendar is designed to be used by colonists of the Moon, and it differs from the one we use here on Earth. Unless you live on the Moon, you don’t really need one, but you can support the idea anyway. Who, knows? Perhaps you will live on the Moon in the future, or your children might. You can read the details on how this calendar works.

Visit LunarClock.org and check current lunar time.

Apollo1-s

Found a short history of the ill-fated Apollo 1 mission. Three astronauts, Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II, and Pilot Roger B.

From Cracked –

Ever since humans first looked into the endless night sky, we have dreamed of traveling among the stars. And after 10,000 years of ingenuity and sacrifice, we’ve journeyed as far as … Earth’s garage, basically. But nonetheless, such is our fascination with going to space that pretty much every single moment those brave astronauts have spent out there has been painstakingly recorded and analyzed — including the deeply embarrassing ones. We’ve all, at some point, been caught in gross, awkward, or just plain stupid situations, but few have done that in plain view of the infinite cosmos, like when … someone farted on the moon, or when the cosmonauts were armed with firearms.
