Tonight (Friday, February 10, 2017) there is a somewhat strange lunar eclipse: The Moon will be only partially blocked by Earth's shadow. It should be noticeable, with one side of the Moon darker than the other.
For a long time, scientists have largely believed the moon was created by a major collision between Earth and an early protoplanet around 4.4 billion years ago. But some new evidence indicates we might’ve had it wrong.
Though a sequel to Warcraft remains on the bubble, director Duncan Jones is keeping busy with a project a bit closer to his usual wheelhouse: A smaller sci-fi story with an intriguing plot. Oh, and fans of his previous hit Moon should be psyched.
Two years ago, the President of the United States made it clear that a return to the Moon was not a priority for American space flight, but it seems he may have forgotten to tell NASA. American astronauts are apparently planning to head back to the Moon less than 10 years from now. At least, that's what the European Space Agency says.
