Just curious if anyone has a favorite blog or group of blogs for information/editorials on space exploration. Are any members of the astronaut corp. posting in a blog?

My friend Glenn Reynolds is the "owner/operator" of www.instapundit.com where he writes to some extent about space exploration, especially within the context of politics. You may also want to check out his links on his site to his other "blogs" (glennreynolds.com over at msnbc.com and his tech central column). He has also authored a book about space law (he teaches law at the University of Tennessee).

While it's not necessarily a blog, Clay Anderson is keeping an online journal of his training for his upcoming ISS Expedition flight.
http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/andersonjournals/index.html

The 2004 candidates are also keeping a training journal, though it hasn't been updated in a while.

"Patheticearthlings" is the blog of one of our members, Rodina (as "All These Worlds" is run by DavidH).

Interesting from yesterdays C.S. front page item. The words, "the last 150 feet to the moon," I love that. Imagining it, the very first time, to say 5000' to the surface of another world for the very first time, then 2000 feet, then like a 75 story skyscraper up, then, with the dreams of the generations of those who've gazed up all before you, 500', then, after millions of hours of hard work from so many people, 20 stories above, then 150', 50', "10' down, kicking up some dust...contact" Oh, sorry Robert, just got a little carried away tonight. Great thanks to you for your fantastic site.

Keep the blogs coming guys... I'm new to web logs too. I logged on to the Clay Anderson 'blog' he's a down to Earth guy with an out of this world job.He talked about Mike Fincke and family and the support given.
Dedicated - Mike Fincke must have been to be away in space while the happy event (birth of his daughter) took place on the ground. Dedicated his wife and family too.Man's great endeavours only take place with tons of support that includes hardware, software, and most importantly dedicated workers and family support on the ground.
Long live space exploration!!

Thanks, Lunarrv15, for asking the question about what a "blog" is, because I did not know, either. I shall exhibit my further ignorance by asking, can anyone (perhaps Capejeffs) tell me the difference between a "blog," or web log, and a web site? Any difference at all?

thanks cagejeff. heard the common term Webpage from people. unaware there was another term.

No connection from the real lunar rover. Though of a unquie name that would be different from everyone else.

So I thought of the Apollo mission (15) that first drove it on tht moon surface and connect them together.

All blogs are websites, but not all websites are blogs.

Blog is short for web log.

To put it simply, a blog is a website that has the purpose of recording the thoughts, ponderings, ideas, and/or reactions of its author in a chronological format resembling a diary or journal. Blogs are typically updated using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain their site.

They differ from other news websites as not only isn't there an editor, but "train of thought" postings are encouraged.

That said, there are blogs (like Alan Boyle's MSNBC Cosmic Log) which use the format to impart information on a particular topic (rather than random thoughts) as a means of conveying stories that do not merit a news article.

I use this format for the front page of collectSPACE, though those who track blogs do not consider this site or its front page as such.

Hope that helps.
