Usefulness of Terrestrial Lavatubes in a Lunar Analog Research Station Program

NASA has ended all funding for Biological “Advanced Life Support”

According to Gary Mitchell, Director of the NSCORT (NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training) program at Purdue University, with team affiliates at Howard and Alabama A&M University, the program launched in 2002 with a 5 year, $10 million commitment from NASA, has now been shut down early because of pressures on the overall NASA budget.

The View from Sun-Earth L5

NASA’s new twin STEREO solar observatories launched October 25th, 2006, if successfully deployed in separate orbits ahead and behind Earth in its orbit about the Sun, will give us our first 3D look at Sunspots and the powerful solar flares and the coronal mass ejections that can originate in these areas.

But let’s take a second looK!

The Moon Society has a new Portal www.TheMoonPeople.org

Link: http://www.TheMoonPeople.org

2006.10.16 - As you may have heard, members of the Moon Society have launched our new open-source Moon Wiki, under the name Lunarpedia.

The Lunarpedia site is necessarily on another server. It requires different software and site management software from the main Moon Society website. So it was only fitting that Lunarpedia team member, Mike Delaney secured www.lunarpedia.org for it's domain name.
