On the less likely to be a prank side, we plan to visit Cape Canaveral next February.   Has anyone been there recently and have tips on what to see?

This group is proposing a one way trip for colonist to Mars.  Critics are calling this a "suicide mission" but by the same token life is a suicide mission.

The Indian Space Research Organization has discovered a massive underground chamber near the moon's equator, one that would be perfect for housing a moon base. A moon base!

"Discovered by the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, this chamber is more than one mile long and 393 feet wide. There would be lots of benefits of building a moon base in there, mainly for protection from the nastiness of the surface of the moon. It'd provide a nearly constant temperature of -4 degrees Fahrenheit, unlike the surface, which fluctuates between 266 degrees and -292 degrees. And it would provide protection from radiation, micro-meteor impacts and dust."
