What Makes Up the MoonIn 1992, the Jupiter-bound Galileo spacecraft made a pass by our planet’s closest companion, the moon. This mosaic of 53 images shows the different composition of rocks on the moon’s surface. Blue and orange colors represent lava flows, bright pink areas are highlands, and light blue colors indicate recent impact material with the youngest craters showing blue rays extending away from them.

Space comics!

Hello meatbags. In addition to my tumblr of space images, I also draw space comics and write space stories.

Today I’ve uploaded the first installment of a near-future sci-fi tale of envy in deep space entitled Midcourse.

I’ve also got an ongoing farther-future sci-fi epic called Diaspora. It’s on a very slow and sporadic schedule for the time being but I’ve got big things planned. Check it out!

I’ve also got assorted other nonsense at my other site for my comics zine WHAT.
