The eldest Moonlet is working on some Space themed projects for school at the moment, so all things Space-related are working the way into our conversations and creating.
Most talk has been around the planets (and aliens of course, he is 8!). There was a series of documentaries on Sunday afternoons that aired recently, each episode focussed on a different planet. He sat and watched intently. We had a funny discussion about the fact that Pluto is no longer a planet, poor Pluto :(
We also just downloaded two great apps for the iPad - Moon Globe and Mars Globe - which allow you to fly over the globes and show geographical landmarks and the places where spacecraft have landed, linking through to Nasa information and mission journals. Pretty cool and both free.
Truth be told, I'm quite enjoying all this space stuff. There's something about contemplating the absolute immensity of the universe that leaves me with a satisfaying sense of awe. I'll leave you with this piece of wonder. Enjoy.
