I found this great article that breaks down rocket engines and how they work in a layman's language.

Good read.

Chinese rover landed on the moon

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-f...#axzz2ohWWtV2T

China watched this month as the nation's first lunar rover rolled across the moon's surface.
It was a moment of national pride when images of the six-wheel rover, dubbed Jade Rabbit, were transmitted live back to Earth, showing the red and gold Chinese flag on the moon for the first time.
"Now as Jade Rabbit has made its touchdown on the moon surface," the state-run Xinhua news agency said, "the whole world again marvels at China's remarkable space capabilities."

That is too much work, you have to be a fighter jock and smart.

I got into computers and networking because of my love for NASA though.

Pretty happy with my life as it is all things considered.
