JMS releases text to Amazing Spider-Man 36
by Doc on Sep.11, 2002, under Comics
JMS posted the text for the 9/11 response issue of Amazing Spider-Man 36, which contains some of the most moving words I have yet read about the event. Not bad for someone who initially refused because he didn’t think he could come up with the words. Read More for the full text.
Update: There is also an article about the issue.
Earth may have a third moon
by Doc on Sep.11, 2002, under Science
Seems the Earth may have third natural moon. The object, dubbed J002E2 (or J002E3, depending on the report), may have arrived recently, and is currently in a 50-day orbit. It still is undecided if it truly is a natural body or perhaps a piece of terrestrial space junk. The Earth’s second “moon”, called Cruithne, is apparently a Trojan asteroid scribing a horseshoe-like path.
Update 9/12: Looks like it could just be a Saturn V S-IVB stage, likely from Apollo 12.
