COME WITH US TO THE MOON!

"I’m at a University that is actually attempting to go to the moon. What can be cooler than that!?” Neil Sharky, VP of Research at Penn State

"We’re doing a goal that not your … common everyday student would even think about doing !"  Amelia Batcha working on the populsion subsystem

But we know that you are not the “everyday student.” You could be a part of this by donating to the Lunar Lions and your quote will be engraved on the spaceship. Where can you go to donate and what would you have engraved on our rocket ship??

NGC 1491 by Bob Fera

An emission nebula found in the constellation of Perseus. This particular nebula has an 11th magnitude star in its center.
The “reddish” color of this object indicates that it is heavily composed of HII. Note how the central star is “blowing” a bubble in the gas that immediately surrounds it.
The winds from this star are so energetic that they are breaking up the nebula to left of it in this picture.

BIG NEWS: Scientists have printed adult eye cells for the first time using an inkjet printer. The technique was carried out using animals cells but paves the way for therapies that could treat blindness in humans. Scientists have previously printed embryonic stem cells and other immature cells but thought adult cells would be too fragile - however, the printed retina cells not only survived, but were able to grow and develop.Read more: http://bit.ly/1kjpYIY via LiveScience

HUGE NEWS: Australian and US researchers have developed a compound which reverses muscle ageing in mice - a key step towards reversing ageing in humans. The compound gave mice more energy, toned their muscles, reduced inflammation and led to improvements in insulin resistance. Scientists say that for humans the effect would be similar to a 60-year-old feeling like a 20-year-old.Read more: http://ab.co/18VhdNl via ABC

This image displays Kepler’s second law of planetary motion.
"A line joining a planet and the Sun sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time" (Meaning that each triangle seen there has equal area.)
The black dot represents a planet, the point where the black lines intersect represent the sun.
The green arrow represents the planet’s velocity,
The purple arrows represents the force on the planet.

Hydrogen, and hydrogen bonds are the building blocks of everything physical. These tiny bits of stuff, just a few atoms attached to another few atoms, was photographed for the first time ever by scientists in Communist China. Commies! Damn!

To create these remarkable images, a team led by…
