Here's some random moon news on the anniversary of the moon landing by Apollo 11. Of course next year we will observe the 40th anniversary of the moon landing (raise your hands if you remember - I was not yet two, but it's one of those events I feel like I remember but probably because I've seen footage of it so much since).
Two items crossed my radar screen recently concerning Earth's only satellite (in my book, man-made ones don't count, besides, they fall down - see Skylab to name one). First, from the source of all knowledge, kottke.org, there is evidently a museum on the moon. But it would seem that no one wants to own up to it as there may be porn involved. Greg.org has the story of a small art catalog of drawings that went up with the Apollo 12 mission.
The second story came to me first from strange maps, but then of course, kottke picked it up. The page shows the ground covered by the men of Apollo 11, superimposed on a soccer field. kottke also has a link to the same map superimposed on a baseball diamond.
It is noteworthy that much of the information for these maps came from the NASA history division and one assumes, their archives. And the first link is to a document from the National Archives regarding the flight plan for the Apollo 11 mission. I'm just saying.
