H/t to friend Alice for pointing me to this interesting article about post-pandemic fashion. I love the idea that we are going to need some “Eccentric clothes, romantic clothes.” I’m in for eccentric. Which I know is going to worry my family.
And this! So cool. “I see the moon” will never be the same!

This geologic map is a synthesis of six Apollo-era regional geologic maps, updated based on data from recent satellite missions. It will serve as a reference for lunar science and future human missions to the Moon. Credit: NASA/GSFC/USGS.
