The Positions of Satellites Around Earth

This collection by Analytic Graphics Inc. shows real-time positions of 13,000 satellites around the Earth in Google Earth. It’s shocking how NASA doesn’t hit any of them with their rockets. It’s strange to think that when we’re stargazing, lots of the specs in the sky are actually satellites! And to imagine that all of these […]

It looks extremely similar to the Firefox logo which leads me to thinking that Mr Stephen Desroches, (who was the graphic […]

The Moon’s Moving Away From Earth

The natural satellite we all call the Moon is slowly drifting away from Earth, there’s no need to panic though, it isn’t going anywhere fast. You’ll all be dead by the time it gets too far away, unless you manage to cleverly find a way for living forever. Every year the moon moves 3.8cm away […]
