Mars Hoax Recirculating and a May Observing Suggestion

Posted by Lydia on May 16th, 2009

The Mars hoax is out visiting blogs again. Don’t be fooled by this nonsense. Instead, take a look at Jupiter near the Moon in a beautiful pre-dawn close encounter on May 17, 2009. NASA and the ESA may collaborate on a future mission to explore two of Jupiter’s Moons, Europa and Ganymede, called the Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM). ESA will send a spacecraft to Ganymede and NASA’s craft will visit Europa. They are calling the joint probes the Jupiter Europa Orbiter (JEO) and Jupiter Ganymede Orbiter (JGO). More on the subject at a later date.
