So there was another UFO over China, sending the world into a frenzy! Okay, maybe not the world, but all the fun loving UFO nutters are chomping at the bit over this one. I must admit, it's kinda weird, but as a science minded person, I will only conclude one thing, that it is a UFO. It's unidentified, it flies and it's an object. That's about it. Anything beyond that is just speculation or self placating Conspiracy Theory junk. Still, it looked kinda cool.
China's second Moon probe is setting up shop in orbit. Soon it will start Lunar Observation science, probably establishing a data set to work from for the eventual Moon Base I'm sure they're going to build. After all, no other nation is really taking space exploration seriously.
"Two research satellites flew into a nearly 400-mile-high orbit early Wednesday (Oct. 6) on a Long March rocket, continuing a pace of nearly one Chinese launch a week since the end of July."
Yeah, that about covers it. On a related note, I got a cool gift yesterday, a small banner showcasing the end of the Space Shuttle Program and its 30 years of service to space exploration. A few weeks ago I got a neat little lapel pin. And in a about 6 months, I'll get a pretty pink slip.
