Spectacular Soyuz Rollout Images | Universe Today. These are some great pictures and a nice little article on the Soyuz. The Soyuz has the best saftey record of any spacecraft and it is older than any other spacecraft flying today. I think that says a lot.

Public talk - online | Galaxy Zoo Blog. Tonight I went to a talk at SIUE by the astrophysicist Chris Lintott. This was an amazing talk about the latest in using the public to help in massive scientific data classification and his current project the Galaxy Zoo. Everyone should take some time to check out the Galaxy Zoo and to help with projects like this. The human mind is still one of the greatest and underutilized computers we have.

First Images from Phoenix | Universe Today. Here are some of the first images from Phoenix. These are quite interesting and I am sure we will see more soon. There will be a flood of new images over the next week or so.

Phoenix has landed. It still amazes me that we can propel an object into space from this planet and then have it land on a completely different one. We now have another lander on Mars and it will soon be returning more and more data on Mars. This all leads up to a manned mission to Mars planned sometime in the future. I can not wait to see what kind of data will be returned from this newest mission.

Douglas MacKinnon: No place for partisans on NASA, space exploration | Houston Chronicle. I could not agree more. I see space travel as highly important for our science, math and educational system as a whole. We need to keep pushing the technology and exploration. We are just now able to see some of the benefits that came from the space race. I would hate to see the next president push politics in front of science, innovation and space exploration.

Amazing Underground USSR Sub Base Photos | Dvorak Uncensored. This is a pretty amazing creation. Things like this that were built during the cold war, are quite interesting to me know. It is interesting how we are now seeing the hidden secrets of the cold war era coming into the light. I watched a Nova a couple weeks ago on a Russian space station that was a giant spy camera. It was really interesting.
