A while back I was approached by a media company asking if I would share an infographic they produced about the Moon.
Generally speaking, I’ve never been keen on passing around infographics, as they are usually full of inaccuracies.
However, I took some time to email the producers and express my concerns over a few inaccuracies that I noticed at a quick glance.
To my surprise, I received a reply to my email, and the producers were receptive to the suggestions I made.
Even more surprising, the company made a donation to my friends at Cosmoquest for my time.

The rumors of Comet ISON’s demise may be greatly exaggerated, well maybe not greatly, but I couldn’t resist the pun. Shown above are a series of still frames from NASA’s SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) Mission.
Reports from earlier in the evening, as well as many images from SOHO showed what looked to be the demise of comet ISON. Follow the “read more” link to see additional images and video.
Fifteen years ago, in November of 1998, the Russian Zarya module, was launched – making it the first module of the International Space Station.

NASA is celebrating the occasion with an infographic showcasing some interesting facts. Click the “read more” link to see the full infographic.(Credit: NASA/Gary Daines)

This portrait looking down on Saturn and its rings was created from images obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on Oct. 10, 2013. It was made by amateur image processor and Cassini fan Gordan Ugarkovic. This image has not been geometrically corrected for shifts in the spacecraft perspective and still has some camera artifacts.The mosaic was created from 12 image footprints with red, blue and green filters from Cassini’s imaging science subsystem. Ugarkovic used full color sets for 11 of the footprints and red and blue images for one footprint.
