    anyone else in the area see the shuttle Endeavor flown overhead today? I wished I could have gotten a little closer to its flight path, but it was still pretty awesome.

    I heard NASA is replacing the shuttle program with the coaster program.

    I sort of forced my friend to let me borrow, Full Moon by Michael Light. It's a book full of public domain photos taken by NASA and astronauts of the moon. It's fucking righteous my space sisters.

    The Chandra X-Ray Observatory has a bunch of interesting images here, along with the relevant explanations. This composite (x-ray from Chandra, optical from the Hubble Telescope and radio from the Very Large Array) image of NGC 1068 is especially neat.

    Space related, or close enough: The Earth is "singing", apparently.

    That's just the tip of the iceberg. I've listened to these recordings made by the Voyager probes just as much as I've listened to my favorite bands.

    Sounds from the magnetosphere, gathered from Canada's CARISMA radio array. Fantastic, hypnotic imagery and sounds.

    Apparently it's the same day that Yeager first broke the sound barrier! Only... without a plane. Yikes.
