  • Amazing space accomplishment.

    By now everyone is aware of the Chinese moon lander landing on the far side of the moon a few days ago...but have you thought "How are they able to send pictures and communicate with the lander?"If you have, check this out! For the first time in history, a satellite has been put in orbit in a 'halo' orbit around the far side of the moon! Just around the far side, not the whole moon.It is always in a position as it orbits, so it sees the lander/rover and some areas over the Earth. These sort of orbits, 'halo' have been accomplished before, but not this one between the Earth and the moon. NASA was considering it for Apollo, but decided not to...for whatever reason..IT"S FUCKING DIFFICULT to do. The Chinese space program pull it off. Congratulations!
    More on the details.

        Actually, there is no dark side of the moon. Both sides of the moon have night and day, as we do.

          You're supposed to say "There is no dark side in the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark. The only thing that makes it look light is the sun." and have a heartbeat playing in the background.

          Two bits of trivia: Mars Probe Opportunity was "awoken" by the PF song Eclipse when it was ready to take pics of Phobos, and while not directly related to DSotM, Russian cosmonauts took Delicate Sound of Thunder with them on a mission, making it the first album to be played in space.

            Although I am familiar with all the songs, as is everyone, I started to pull away from PF with that album. (so I didn't realize Waters said that) I'm a pre-Dark Side PF fan.

            Some fun facts;
            - The moon's surface can be as hot as 260 degrees Fahrenheit (127 degrees Celsius)
            - But when the surface goes dark, the temperature may plummet all the way down to -280 degrees Fahrenheit (-173 degrees Celsius).
            - Every lunar day lasts for 29.5 Earth days.
            - Any point on the surface is dark or light for approximately two weeks.

                Although I do love the post-dark side albums, dark side itself was never a favorite of mine. I probably listen to more pre- than post-, so our tastes trend similarly there. I really like More for it's contrast to the more-produced albums of the later years.

                  I think "Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii" is an amazing film performance.
                  Let's go all the way.
