    As most of you are well aware, today marks 50 years since the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. And although Earth's moon might not immediately jump to mind when you think about Wing Commander, it actually shows up quite a bit! LOAF recently went through the (often tragic) history of our natural satellite in Episode 19 of

    All Wings Considered

    . Check out the embedded clip below to go straight to the retrospective:

    If you haven't seen it yet, here's a nice video of the really cool show projected on the Washington Monument this week. Dundradal was lucky enough to see it in person!

    What's next for the moon? India appeared set to launch an ambitious mission to become the fourth country to send a rocket up earlier this week, but the attempt was

    scrubbed

    with an hour to go. Meanwhile, NASA is still heading down a path that could lead to a return to the moon in five years.

    Howard Day

    has done some serious damage to his

    Hornet cockpit

    , and the results are amazing! The shattered displays and windscreen are so severe that they almost make you gasp.

An initial analysis of their movements suggests a subtle change to their tactics. I believe they are seeking to reassert themselves in their original nexus."


    "A considerable number of Thargoid craft have gathered in the Maia system. With the Palin Research Centre facing an imminent attack, the decision was made to evacuate Professor Palin and his staff, thereby protecting a number of vital research projects. All work at Palin Research Centre has been suspended."


    "Regrettably, however, a transmission from Palin's megaship, Carson's Spring, indicates that it was
