  • I’ll See You on the Far Side of the Moon

    NASA just released the first video ever Grail has taken from the far side of the moon.

    Makes me think of this:

    “And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
    You shout and no one seems to hear.
    And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
    I’ll see you on the dark far side of the Moon”

    from Brain Damage, by Pink Floyd. Original lyrics by Roger Waters.
    Edited version of the lyrics by thousands of scientists since then.
