Ca toti lupii cu gandul indreptat spre Luna ....

De multa vreme sunt atras de astronomie, de ce se afla dincolo de atmosfera terestra la planete, stele, sateliti naturali, la posibilitatea de a gasi viata extrateresta. Sunt sigur ca multi dintre noi au visat sa aibe posibilitatea de a merge in spatiu ... eu cel putin m-am gandit la acest lucru (cine stie poate o sa ajung vreodata acolo //aici vorbeste optimistul si visatorul din mine :)) ). Nu de putine ori am intrat pe site-ul oficial NASA pentru a mai afla ce mai e nou in acest domeniu. De la pozele extraordinare obtinute cu telescopul Hubble pana la informatii despre Luna, Soare si alte descoperiri de la marginea universului tangibil noua. Astfel am aflat prin 2008 despre misiunea NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter prin intermediul careia se trimitea pe Luna un cip ce continea numele celor ce s-au inscris pe site intr-o anumita perioada(Name to the Moon). Am reusit la vremea respectiva sa imi inscriu numele astfel incat desi nu am ajuns fizic pe Luna numele meu e acolo alaturi de multe altele.
De ceva vreme insa am aflat de un proiect romanesc ce se leaga de acest astru ceresc.
Este vorba despre singura echipa romaneasca inscrisa la competitia Google Lunar X Prize. Echipa ARCA Lunar doreste sa trimita o sonda pe Luna care sa fie capabila sa trasmita imagini si video HD si sa parcurga 500 de metri pe suprafata Lunii. De asemenea sonda v-a avea incorporat si un dispozitiv care v-a contine imagini si video ce au fost trimise de catre romanii care au ajutat aceasta expeditie. Este dupa parerea mea un efort demn de remarcat si de sustinut.
Daca altii pot NOI de ce nu AM PUTEA?

History repeats … WWII

9 decembrie 2009 at 12/09/2009 12:17:00 a.m.

An old colleague of mine had an interesting hobby: recreating the battles of WWII in his own design. For these he created armies for US, Germany and other countries. While representing US he finished the WWII by defeating Germany after o series of well known battles: Normandy, Ardennes, St Lo, Berlin (these were long campaigns each with its series of battles). My friend presented the way he had recreated these battles on a Romanian forum. Since we both are interested in history I thought that I should present some pictures and information on how he has done it.



-Ardennes-



-Normandy-



-St Lo-






-Berlin-





-Military might-

Spooferman

While I was reading on the official Les Stroud site I've found that he had started a new project named Spooferman where all those that created videos in the same stile like Survivorman could upload videos and even participate to contests. I really loved Survivorman and I'm sure that I'll find the time to check the videos from Spooferman. I also recommend it to all those who watched Survivorman or Man vs Wild on Discovery Channel or Discovery Science.

ps: here is the video made by Les Stroud for Spooferman
