Moonbeams: News From Spaaaaaace, Sort of

Hello Friends!
Okay, as you know this blog features vintage clothing, art, inspiration, words of inspiration, and from time to time news from Spaaaaaace. Well, about the happenings outside of Earth, or things made on Earth about the universe, or cool Space-like things going on. I have posted a little about this in the past and hope to make this part of a column here on Gold Moon Vintage. After all, the moon IS part of this blog's namesake and for good reason. So here are some of my recent findings related to this subject.

In Design

I saw this astronaut bedding via swissmiss. It's by SNURK and you can find it here. I think it is perfect for kids and also adults like me! 

In Space

This is a photo of the Curiosity rover on Mars taking a self-portrait, more information found here. The location is in the Yellowknife Bay area on Mars. This self-portrait is a mosaic of images. Curiosity recently determined that it's landing site, the Gale Crater, could have supported microbial life in the ancient past. (Pretty darn exciting!)

On Earth / Innovation 

"The Star Trek logo in the skies over London Saturday night (March 23), giving the world a sneak peek at a future in which unmanned aircraft are put to all sorts of commercial use.
Saturday's light show involved 30 miniature four-rotor 'quadcopters,' which hovered in formation to generate a 300-foot-tall (90 meters) version of the famous logo. The purpose was twofold — to promote the upcoming film Star Trek: Into Darkness and raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change." found here
This makes me imagine hologram projecting advertising droids. It could happen!

There is soooo much fascinating Space related news happening almost each week! I'm really excited about this column and I hope you are too! This stuff will be in history books, my friends!
