What’s New in Moon and Space Exploration?


In October 2017, the Moon was the star of many news items about space exploration. Well, the Moon isn’t actually a star, of course, but it starred in the articles… Just a figure of speech!

So what did we have this month? A change of plans, first the Moon and then Mars? Is the United States going to send people to the Moon again? Are there plans to build a Moon base? Does Earth have a second moon? What about the cave that was discovered on the moon? And how can you fly between the planets and the moons from the comfort of your own home?

You can see all this and more in a video recapping news about the Moon and Space for October 2017.
