According to official government records, the last time man ever set foot on the Moon was back in December 1972, when Apollo 17 astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt spent three days on the lunar surface. What most don't know is that more Apollo missions were originally planned - Apollo 18, 19 and 20 - all of which were already in the construction and / or in the latter planning stages when they were cancelled in 1972 supposedly due to declining public interest and budget cuts. That was seemingly the case until 2007, when astronaut William Rutledge posted a video to YouTube claiming it to be from the secret Apollo 20 mission. Rutledge claimed Apollo 20's goal was to explore the polar region of the Moon, on its dark side, and in particular a miles-long crashed spacecraft.

Some believe that NASA had a secret space program, codenamed "Project Redsun," back in the late 1960s to early 1970s, that involved actually manned missions to Mars. Thanks to computer graphics, just about anything is possible these days, but conspiracy theorists believe that the current Curiosity Rover is a giant hoax, as its shiny solar panels are evidence that they are being polished by humans already on Mars. Continue reading for five more Red Planet mysteries.
It's no surprise that some people believe the Earth is flat, but what happens when Tesla CEO Elon Musk responds to a tweet made by "Flat Earth Society" on Twitter? Well, let's just say that hilarity ensues. The most popular flat-earther theory claims that Earth is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica, a 150-foot-tall wall of ice, located around the rim. They also say NASA employees guard this ice wall to prevent people from climbing over and falling off the disc. Continue reading to see how the internet reacted.
Astronomers have discovered the first interstellar asteroid, nicknamed "Oumuamua" (Hawaiian for 'a messenger from afar arriving first'), in our solar system, and it was observed passing by Earth. The asteroid is described to be dark and reddish, without any gas or dust surrounding it. Initial observations have peg it at a quarter-mile long, and approximately 10-times longer than its width.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced today that his company's plans now include living on not just Mars, but also the moon.

Continue reading for a picture of the Mars City and more information.
Elon Musk's SpaceX has unveiled BFR (Big F*cking Rocket) may eventually colonize the Moon and Mars, but in the near future, the company plans to offer Earth to Earth Service. Simply put, the rockets can take people between cities with anywhere on Earth in under 1-hour. Passengers will first board a Hyperloop that takes you to a loading platform, enter the rocket, and get sent into low-Earth orbit. The main passenger section breaks away from the thruster and heads off towards its destination, while the other part heads back to its origin. Continue reading for another video and more information.
Dubai has partnered with Bjarke Ingels to build the world's largest space simulation city in the UAE desert, which will mimic the conditions of life on mars. Spanning 1.9 million square feet, the "Mars Science City Project" will consist of massive domed structures that host laboratories for food, energy, water, agricultural testing, studies about food security, and a museum displaying humanity's greatest space achievements. Plus, the museum's walls will be 3D printed, using sand from the Emirati desert Continue reading for more pictures and information.
Another day, another supposed UFO / alien sighting, but this time things get a little weird. Simply put, an extraterrestrial being called Myziam ran out of fuel while passing Earth, a planet in which he named "0422". This intelligent alien posted pictures of what 4Chan users requested of him, including particular coordinates someone, and that same person supposedly got a photo of the UFO itself while it happened.

Astronomers have observed an object in space unlike anything they've seen before: 288P, a binary asteroid - or two asteroids orbiting one other. Just like a comet, it boasts a long tail and bright coma, or cloud of dust and gas surrounding a comet's nucleus. It's officially the first binary asteroid they have ever observed that can also be classified as a comet. Continue reading for another video and more information.
