ARE SATURN’S RINGS DYING? Aticle Link: https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/are-saturns-rings-dying One of the most spectacular sights through a telescope’s eyepiece is the planet Saturn. Its iconic rings are so obvious even in small telescopes that they cause gasps from first-time viewers. I can’t even tell you how many people have asked if they’re real when I show them Saturn through my own ‘scope. The look of awe and joy on their faces is one of the biggest reasons I love showing off the planet. Yet that may be its ultimate fate. A new paper predictsthat in the future — perhaps as soon as 100 million years — Saturn’s rings may be gone. Or, at least, severely depleted and not at all like they look today. Sending astronauts to Mars would be stupid, astronaut says Article Link: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46364179 In December 1968, Anders, along with crewmates Frank Borman and Jim Lovell, lifted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida atop a Saturn V, before completing 10 orbits around the Moon. The crew of Apollo 8 spent 20 hours in orbit, before returning to Earth. Anders, 85, said he’s a “big supporter” of the “remarkable” unmanned programmes, “mainly because they’re much cheaper”. But he says the public support simply isn’t there to fund vastly more expensive human missions. “What’s the imperative? What’s pushing us to go to Mars?” he said, adding “I don’t think the public is that interested”. In a statement, Nasa said it was “leading a sustainable return to the Moon, which will help prepare us to send astronauts to Mars”. “That also includes commercial and international partners to expand human presence in space and bring back new knowledge and opportunities.” Nasa couldn’t get to the Moon today. “The space station is only there because you had a shuttle, and vice-versa. Nasa really mismanaged the manned programme since the late lunar landings.” Show Stuff TeePublic Store – Get your UBR goodies today! http://tee.pub/lic/2GQuXxn79dg UBR Trurh Seekers Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/216706068856746 Manny Moonraker: https://www.facebook.com/MannyMoonraker/ UFO Buster Radio: https://www.facebook.com/UFOBusterRadio YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCggl8-aPBDo7wXJQ43TiluA Google Plus Manny’s Updated Google+ Profile: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MannyMoonraker To contact Manny: manny@ufobusterradio.com, or on Twitter @ufobusterradio  Call the show anytime at (972) 290-1329 and leave us a message with your point of view, UFO sighting, and ghostly experiences or join the discussion on www.ufobusterradio.com For Skype Users: bosscrawler
