SPACE

How better to redeem a withering Space blog then to post an amazing re-enactment of one of mankind's greatest achievements to date: the landing on Ganeymede.

"Re-enactement"? I hope that was sarcasm. :) The gallery says "Pictures from the ganymede-mission in 2026". As of today, I don't know of any official mission towards Ganymede involving any landing; they're all orbital.

demdike's work is only an exercise in alternate history, although quite a good one.

Thanks for the protip; I've obviously forgotten how many moons we've landed on.

ps- the answer is one.

Obviously some people don't get our posting style Jacob.

I thought it was kind of funny, actually.

You know you've achieved a measure of success when you get anonymous comments correcting something you intended to be non-factual.

I LOL'd. Off to via...

Anonymus already had the answer:"...any OFFICIAL missons..." - now go figure.

Thanks for blogging my made-up-punk, I'm flattered:)

 
Jacob
Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
Mike
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Dean
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik
Erik has been through the desert on horse with no name. As a result he has all sorts interesting things to say, and you are welcome to listen if you can understand the somewhat inane babble that sprouts from his mouth. He owns a microwave oven, a custom kitchen, a refrigerator, and even a color TV. Along with his laygo, he spends his time with the people who have been able to tolerate him up to the point where he can call them his friends, as well as this blog. Erik maintains the lifestyle of yesteryear; he still plays his Nintendo 64 and even reads the newspaper (as in the kind printed on paper) from time to time. What a loser.
Now someone get these mutts away from me, you know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore.
Lukas
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
