Hello....:)

Do make sure to look at the Moon tonight and the coming weekend. It will be a perigee full Moon, and will not be this close or as brilliant until August 2014.

Have a good weekend.

In my opinion Feix Baumgartner is the bravest man alive today with his record breaking skydive from the edge of space! This man paves the way for the future of space travel.

A reminder to those who already know, and an announcement to those who do not. :)

The rover named 'Curiosity,' is due to land on Mars at 6.30 AM GMT and will be covered live here:

The one tonne rover will descend at 13,000 mph through the Martian atmosphere. It will utilize a £1.67 billion heat shield, a supersonic parachute and eight rocket thrusters to manage the landing. 17 cameras and sampling instruments will perform tests on the Martian environment to discern for the presence of microscopic life (or previous life) and to determine the possibilities of a future manned mission. The landing has been presciently described as 'seven minutes,' of terror, and more tumultuous than the first Moon landings.

Since 'HeavenlyBodies,' has undergone a process of removing deviations that were not related to its theme, I decided to create a biologically related group; 'BiologicaBotanica.' :iconbiologicabotanica:

The new group is still undergoing construction, however join requests are now available. :)
