Space... the final frontier

Post by admin »

Nicely written <hack, cough> item from Down Under in WIRED mag about an elderly Australian scientist -- a guy who taught the Apollo astronauts -- about the dust (known as "regolith") that covers the surface of the moon. Item includes a picture of Aldrin's famous lunar footprint which, yup, has sunk deep into the stuff!

If you ever had data that couldn't be retrieved due to the lack of hardware that will read your vintage file format, this one is for you.
