Walkabout the Galaxy
water on the Moon, Moon's south polar region
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Move over Mars, the Moon wants in on the water game! Attention is focused on the south polar region of the Moon which is both dark (and therefore cold and water-friendly) all the time, and also bright (and therefore solar-panel friendly) all the time. What?! Yep, that's right. The astroquarks are back from summer break to break it all down for you in this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy, plus space trivia and news.
The Strong Force
Midichlorians may help you sway the weak-minded to look elsewhere for droids, or help you sanitize your swimming pool (frankly we're not sure), but if you really want to build great things, the Strong Force is what you need. With a reputation for reliability that goes back 13.8 billion years, the Strong Force is the backbone of all you hold dear, including your actual backbone. Overcoming the middling electromagnetic force and putting pathetic gravity to shame, the Strong Force is proud to have brought you Helium, Lithium, Boron, Oxygen, Carbon, and every other element besides Hydrogen, giving you a universe of wonder, light, and life, and a charming little galaxy for your Walkabout. The Strong Force: don't leave home without it.
