For those that are interested, the LPI (Lunar and Planetary Institute) has just created a new website on Lunar Science and Exploration. I haven't poked around much myself, but this new website provides access to everything “lunar” from the earliest Apollo-era documents to the most recent lunar research reports. Whether or not you think sending new crewed expeditions is a good idea, there's a wealth of information here. All kinds of images, an atlas, data on the samples, mission summaries. Enjoy.


On an unrelated matter, the code I'm debugging unhelpfully chose to run successfully over the weekend and failed to, well, fail. How can I fix errors if I can't reproduce them?

Is it a requirement for the position, or does the act of being the head of NASA turn a person totally batshit insane. I thought Griffin was the man when we first got him, but now he's on his way to being worse than O'Keefe.

Read an excerpt )

I got that a week ago, but forgot to post it. The short version: Griffin's science advisors advised him not to pour everything into the President's Moon-Mars program at the expense of science. They were asked to resign? WTF? If you're going to run an agency autocratically, at least don't pretend you want input from others.
