Quote of the Month

", once surrendering his reason,
has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous,
and like a ship without a rudder, is the sport of every wind.
With such persons, gullibility which they call faith,
takes the helm from the hand of reason,
and the mind becomes a wreck."

- Thomas Jefferson

Quote of the Month

"I think the problem is that people often confuse skepticism with cynicism.
I’m not a cynic, not at all.
I’m willing to be shown.
All I ask for is the evidence."

The Mars Timeline Mobile App (Free)

After years of research and about 6 months of development, a new project of mine has come to fruition: the Mars Timeline mobile app. It is a tribute to humanity's effort to conquer Mars, an encyclopedia containing every mission ever sent to the Red Planet.

downl;oad it and enjoy mission overviews, detailed technical information of spacecraft, and galleries of rare images. Enjoy the story of Mars exploration all for free and without advertisements, of course, as I believe that we should not put a price on knowledge.

Quote of the Month

"The problem with today’s world is that
everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion
AND have others listen to it.

The correct statement of individual rights is that
everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially,
that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of,
particularly if it is demonstrably nonsense!"

- Professor Brian Cox

History Was Made Yesterday...

... and not by SpaceX!

Although, to be fair, what SpaceX is trying to do from orbit (not from a mere 100 km) is infinitely harder. Still, kudos to Blue Origins!

Backpacking Guide for Japan

Backpacking is a fun and rewarding way to travel. It offers more opportunities, to immerse oneself in a foreign culture, than more traditional ways. Yet, for those who have never done it before, planning a backpacking trip may seem like a daunting task, especially if the target country is as exotic as Japan. Luckily, that is where this article comes in. Of course, I am by no means an expert, but I did go on an impromptu, month-long backpacking trip to Japan, during which I feel I had gained invaluable experiences that can be beneficial to others; especially if you, like me, go there for the first time. This is what this article is about.

doesn't mean you can fill in the gaps
with whatever fairytale most appeals to you."
