    I always laugh when a television show has people talking about the permanently dark side of the Moon.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    LOL. You are quite right. (More right than am I.)

    I take umbrage at that!

    I was very good with a compass and a map.

    Yea, magnetic declination is pretty easy when it means food at the other end of a hike.

    Let me take a chance to say YEA GO NASA on the orbital insertion of Messenger around Mercury. Modern history as we watch, again.

    Yes, the NASA web site is one of my favorites with all of the missions highlighted on their own pages. Great stuff.

    Unless they're talking about Walrath's massive orb.
    "Where the sun don't shine", indeed.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Please retract your unbrage. I was specific about that being an Army phenomenon. (Wasn't I? If not, that's what I meant.) In my multi-service experience I've found aviators (including USAF) and sailors to be quite good at nav.

    thanks. I knew quite a few Army people who were very good with the compass as well. They were all former Boy Scouts!

    I talked to Gene Cernan last night... He said the new lunar mapping satellite images WILL SHOW.... that he left the lunar car parked with the front wheel cranked left and his daughters initials written in the lunar powder by the front wheel. He says an image is posted that shows the car and you can indeed see the wheels are cocked left.... I didn't have time to ask him where he left the Hasselblad surveying body before he took the 70mm film back off.


    This is cool... Mr. Cernan must have seen a yet higher res print but here it is... he says one day they will be able to see his doodles in the sand an footprints. I didn't realize he was on the moon for 72 hours... that is a while.

    There is a higher res picture somewhere on the NASA site. I saw it a few weeks ago. You can see the footprints and some smaller items.
