Russians talking about building an international moon base

Russia’s Roscosmos space agency is supposedly in talks with the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA to see what can be done to create a moon base.  While this is a Good Thing in my view, I’m cynical about the chances of it getting anywhere before the private sector does.  Space.com   Moondaily   Engadget

1st Private Rocket Launch to Space Station Delayed

SpaceX has delayed its cargo delivery to the ISS.  No new date has been announced, but I’m all in favor of triple (or quadruple, or sextuple, or…) checking the design and plans for the launch.  Make this go off without a hitch, guys.

NASA’s research into cold fusion

Well, sort of.  It’s not really cold fusion, it’s low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), i.e., it’s altering the nuclear structure of matter and using the resulting reactions to produce energy, but not on the “Big Boom” scale.  This is the same kind of thing that Andrea Rossi is working on with his alleged cold fusion system, the E-Cat… but this is NASA we’re talking about, not some possible scam-artist.  Which presents some interesting possibilities…

Update:  Aaaand the inevitable rebuttal (from a Forbes.com contributor)
