Yutu Update

Phil Stooke • April 10, 2014 • 1

We don’t hear a lot at the moment about Chang’E 3 and Yutu, the Chinese lander and rover which were all over the news a few months ago.

Emily Lakdawalla • April 04, 2014 • 5

A video of Apollo astronaut David Scott's lecture to the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. His talk was an absolute treat: funny, educational, engaging, full of joy at his adventure, though at the end, a little angry that we've not sent more humans back.

Emily Lakdawalla • March 04, 2014

Pretty pictures of terraced craters on Mars

Emily Lakdawalla • February 27, 2014 • 3

Check out this unusual crater on Mars. It's not a very big one, less than 500 meters in diameter, and yet it has two rings. Most craters on Mars this size are simple bowl shapes. What's going on here?
