One issue with our grand return to the Moon with humans is that I’m too excited nearly all the time. Constantly writing about it doesn’t help.

Moon Monday #91: Artemis landing sites and a launch on the horizon, lunar construction, and more updates: blog.jatan.space/p/moon-monday

Here are all the space science missions India will launch in the near future, from a Moon landing reattempt with Chandrayaan 3, its first solar telescope, first Venus orbiter, and more: blog.jatan.space/p/isro-space-

NASA’s Artemis I mission launching in two weeks will study deep space radiation like no other with its plethora of distinct experiments, all helping protect future astronauts on and around the Moon: blog.jatan.space/p/moon-monday

Moon Monday #90: An armada of radiation detectors, preparing for dark Moonwalks, and more lunar updates: blog.jatan.space/p/moon-monday

My work philosophy for the past year has been to simply not engage in Twitter chatter or do hot takes on space stuff anywhere, and instead just focus on putting out articles and my Moon Monday newsletter. I’m happy, and I think my actual readers are more satisfied too.

I feel this energy after publishing every issue of Moon Monday: blog.jatan.space/s/moon-monday. Writing through major developments of the week as we Earthlings mount fleets of lunar missions this decade really makes me feel the progress and drive to explore. It’s so satisfying and hopeful.

I also wrote a follow-up post on how this mission will inspire kids and students in South Korea, similar to how India's Chandrayaan 1 did the same for me: blog.jatan.space/p/moon-moment

South Korea has launched its first Moon mission! My article highlights its importance to science, the country’s future ambitions, and NASA’s role: blog.jatan.space/p/kplo

Some friends and readers tell me I publish too many articles a month (😅), and would prefer an easier way to see at a glance notable posts from across my many blogs.

Okay, so here’s everything I published in July: roundup.jatan.space/everything

South Korea is just a week away from launching its first Moon mission! I wrote about how it will inspire kids and students in South Korea, and how India’s Chandrayaan 1 did the same for me: blog.jatan.space/p/moon-moment

Today is International Moon Day, and I'm excited to share my curated Moon page blog.jatan.space/our-moon 🌗

I’ve handpicked resources and self-written articles to get people from all backgrounds excited and informed about our Moon as we mount a grand return.

Future astronauts on the Moon might use a smart tablet to plan and enhance their scientific excursions. I like to call this the “Moonwalk tablet”, about which I cover in this week’s Moon Monday. Love this initiative by ESA. blog.jatan.space/p/moon-monday
