The Dark Side of the Moon

NASA has released new images from the Deep Space Climate Observatory showing the dark side of the moon as it moves in front of the sunny side of Earth.

I’ve never been able to understand how we could abandon the exploration of the universe after our few early off-planet trips in the 60s and 70s.  It’s like Columbus returned to Spain after finding North America, and no one bothered to sail West again.


Here’s the obligatory Pink Floyd link.  If I hadn’t posted it, you would have just called it up yourself anyway.
