    Happy Moon Day 2016!

    I was lax in my duties last year and [gasp] missed Moon Day 2015, but that makes Moon Day 2016 all that more important!

    For those that didn't realize, today marks 47 years since mankind first set foot on the moon. In celebration of this achievement, we are enjoying astronaut ice cream (even though astronauts don't eat it) and Tang in celebration!

    Popular Science has a nice article on some interesting facts about the Apollo missions for those that might be interested: TEN THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING

    And for anyone interested there are some great resources online which cover the Apollo missions in exquisite detail:
