How Do We Know the Moon Landing Isn't Fake?

As we near the lunar eclipse we're thinking about the Moon. And thinking about the landings on the Moon. But how do we know they weren't faked? It's a puzzler.

Hello Space Fans!

Tonight there will be a total lunar eclipse tonight in the Western Hemisphere. 

+Scott Lewis  will be heading to Cerritos College in Norwalk, CA to do some on-site outreach with Dr. +Thad Szabo. Internet permitting, we'll be attempting to bring in a live feed of the lunar eclipse from LA and hopefully connect with our friends from the +Virtual Star Party  and bring in feeds from there too!

If you're in the Los Angeles area, you are more than welcome to join us on site. The event starts at 10:30 p.m. PT and parking is free after 10 p.m.

Cerritos College: 11190 Alondra Blvd. Norwalk, CA 90650
Parking Lot C-6 off of Studebaker, just south of Alondra Blvd.

Not local? That's okay too! Share with us your pictures of the eclipse in the event below! 

Keep Looking Up!

Some explanations for the weather on Westeros

People have wondered if there are some kinds of natural explanation for why Westeros in Game of Thrones might experience these extreme weather shifts, and have winters that arrive at unpredictable times. 

Here's a great video from +Sixty Symbols that offers some ideas. And if you want an even more detailed explanation, check out this video:

Rocket cam footage from the +European Space Agency, ESA

I love this video from the +European Space Agency, ESA that shows the launch of a Soyuz rocket and eventual separation of the Sentinel-1A satellite. More cameras on more rockets = more better.

The Small and Large Magellanic Clouds by +Cory Schmitz

Well, I don't know about you, but I don't recognize these objects in my skies. That's because they're not visible from here in Canada. But +Cory Schmitz is down in South Africa, and captured these stunning images of the Large and Small Magellanic clouds.

If you want to see more of Cory's work, you should check out his Flickr page too:

Aurora near Fairbanks by John Chumack

One of my favorite astrophotographers, +John Chumack spent some time in March capturing insane pictures of the Aurora Borealis in Alaska. Here's a widefield view of the Alaskan sky, with an amazing aurora painted across the heavens.

Just to get an idea of the size and scope of this, John labeled some of the stars and constellations. Mars is in there too.

Epic.

Best Inexpensive Coffee Solution?

I'm visiting a friend who doesn't like coffee, so no coffee maker, etc. I was thinking of picking up some kind of gadget so I can make good coffee. I've got an espresso machine at home, so I'm sort of a snob.

Can anyone recommend a gadget or device that brews coffee better than a coffee maker, but doesn't cost too much money?

People from across the world will be getting together to celebrate one thing: our initial step away from the Earth, orbiting it in a Soviet spacecraft by Yuri Gagarin. 

Yuri made his legendary trip, taking his species along for the 108-minute ride, on 12 April 1961. On +Yuri's Night, we celebrate this man and the human endeavor to reach out beyond the horizon that has set before us.

Here at +Space Fan News!, we would love to celebrate Yuri's Night with all of you, no matter where on this beautiful blue marble you live. There are many "official" Yuri's Night events happening in over 40 countries, but since not everyone has access to these event, we'll be doing something a little different to bring us together. 

We're asking you to share with us how you celebrate the accomplishment ofh... more »

Amazon Fire TV Review

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CX5P8FC/

I’m a junkie for set top boxes, I’ve got them all: Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Ouya, Xbox 360, etc, etc. So I just had to get my hands on an Amazon Fire TV when it came out.

As a Canadian, this is particularly difficult, since it pretty much won’t work in our country yet.

But I happened to be visiting friends in the US this week, so I ordered a Fire TV and had it delivered to my friend's house, so I could play around with it.

For starters, my Canadian Amazon account left it totally baffled, but fortunately I was able to use their account, and get access to everything.

I’m going to give you the short version of the review: it’s fast, it’s pretty, the voice search works (for Amazon purchases), it does games (didn't try them).

But here’swhat’s totall... more »

Watch Mars Rotating in this short video

Mars is at Opposition, and nearing its closest point to the Earth. So we're getting amazing views of the Red Planet. Take a look at this amazing astrovideo by +Christian Fröschlin that captures Mars slowly rotating over several hours.

Everything dies, including our technology. But when we’ve hurtled a few thousands pounds of robotic instrumentation to another planet, it gets a little difficult to shut it down and clean up. What do we do when a mission has reached the end of its useful life?

Seriously consider Slack for your group communications

+Nancy Atkinson and I have switched our Universe Today internal group messaging over to Slack (http://slack.com) and I've been really really happy with it.

It pretty much replaces email, chat hangouts, skype and other communications tools with one interface. We can have group conversations about our story ideas and specific projects, and then private conversations that mimic email. 

Just in case you were wondering, it was founded by +Stewart Butterfield, one of the co-founders of Flickr, and I've always respected his focus on product design.

Why Do Galaxies Have Arms?

In this short video, I explain why galaxies have arms, and why they're not the permanent structures you might expect. Featuring a crash-landed +Kerbal Space Program spaceship and the resulting kitchen table traffic jam.

When the United States helped defeat Germany at the end of World War II, they acquired the German rocket scientist Wernher von Braun. He had already developed the German V2 rocket program, and went on to design all the major hardware of the US rocket program. This week, we talk about von Braun's life and accomplishments.

Can Light Orbit a Black Hole?

I love this idea of the photon sphere - a region around a black hole where light is pulled into orbit. Can you imagine what it would look like to be at the photon sphere with all that distorted light swirling around you?

Anyway, it's the topic of our latest video. Enjoy!

Yes, we actually landed on the Moon. No, aliens didn't crash land at Roswell. What is it about space exploration that leads to so many conspiracy theories? We'll try to get to the bottom of these conspiracy theories, poke holes in their ridiculous ideas and help you build your baloney detection kit.

Spaceteam is the Best Party Game

Want to connect people together? Get them playing a round of +Spaceteam. This amazingly simple and hilarious game can be played by 2 or more phones or tablets over wifi.

You're a member of a spaceteam, trying to navigate through a series of dangerous sectors of space, dodging asteroids and hurtling through wormholes. The only way to survive is through perfect teamwork.

Each team member requests other people to flip switches and turn nobs on their control panel. "Set mu-panel to 1", "Disengage gauss beacon".

It sounds simple and silly, and it is, but there's a shared joy and excitement that's hard to beat.

The game is super fun - and free.

It's safe to say that the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus shook up the whole Universe. Well, our understanding of our place in the Universe. It was Copernicus who came up with the heliocentric model, placing the Sun at the center of the Solar System, with the Earth as just another planet.

Rotating Sun from NASA/SDO

Take a look at this visualization that +Kevin Gill did of the Sun slowly rotating during the month of January, 2014. You can see it in all the different wavelengths simultaneously, captured by NASA's SDO.

Specifically, take a look at that sunspot group in visual light (upper left) and then see how it looks in the other wavelengths.

How Do You Kill a Black Hole?

Black holes are the enemy of all the spacefaring races. We need to kill them before they kill us. But how can we do it? What methods can we use to destroy black holes?

Why isn't voice search just part of Chrome?

Maybe I don't understand how this works yet, but it still feels like there's an extra step to use voice search. I need to navigate to Google.com and then use voice search.

Shouldn't my Chrome browser - developed by Google - which searches Google by default when I type search terms into the browser bar, do this automatically?

I should be able to interact with my computer, by voice, via Google, even when I'm not on a Google website.

I know that means that my browser will be constantly listening to everything I say, waiting to hear for "OK Google", but that's fine with me.

That moves us significantly forward to that bold future of interacting with the computer via voice.

If I have to open up a tab, go to Google.com. Then I'm just going to keep on typing... more »

How heavy is a kilogram, how long is a second? How warm is a degree? We measure our Universe is so many different ways, using different units of measurement. But how do scientists come up with measurement tools which are purely objective?

What is this thing?

A friend bought this mysterious device in a thrift store for a $1, and we can't figure out what it is. It's got in and out plugs on the back, so I think it's some kind of timer or thermostat? But the dials are totally bizarre and incomprehensible.

Does anyone know what it is?

Kepler's New Universe

Here's a new documentary from the folks at +Deep Astronomy about the amazing discoveries made by NASA's Kepler Mission. Thanks to Kepler, we now know that our galaxy is teeming with Earth-sized worlds, which makes the search for life even more tantalizing.

Pop quiz. How did Einstein win his Nobel prize? Was it for relativity? Nope, Einstein won the Nobel Prize in 1921 for the discovery of the photoelectric effect; how electrons are emitted from atoms when they absorb photons of light. But what is it? Let's find out.
