    In July we celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the first lunar landings. This historic milestone has provided an opportunity for us to reflect upon man kinds achievements. It has also prompted a debate on our future in space.

    NASA is currently developing technology that will allow us to return to the Moon.
    They aim to establish a permanent lunar presence to enable further exploration of the Solar system.

    Amongst others Apollo 11 astronaut - Buzz Aldrin has criticised this scheme;

    "There's no reason for us to go back. We can look at the effects of long-term missions in space by flying around comets, rather than setting up a base on the Moon. We're not going to launch any missions from there."

    Dr. Aldrin believes we should be setting our sights on Mars rather than returning to the moon. Is he right? If not, why should we return?

    A series of images from a short book on journeys. Each image has been corrected on a grid to give perfect verticals and horizontals. The purpose of this was to create a journey within each image.
    You can see the full book here.

    “Ostensibly physical objects like tables and chairs are really nothing more than collections of sensible ideas. Since no idea can exist outside a mind, it follows that tables and chairs, as well all the other furniture of the physical world, exist only insofar as they are in the mind of someone, only insofar as they are perceived. For any nonthinking being, to be is to be perceived.”

    - George Berkeley

    Ultra Deep Field


    This Image shows some of the earliest galaxies in our universe. Some of them are as much as 13 billion years old. The image required 800 exposures taken over the course of 400 Hubble orbits around Earth. The total amount of exposure time was 11.3 days.
