Excellent adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “Mars is Heaven” from the series “X Minus One”. It originally aired May 8, 1955.
On October 7th a YouTuber named DominatorPS3 posted a video in which he showed an odd anomaly in a NASA photo taken from the Cassini Orbiter. When the brightness was boosted on the photo evidence of manipulation seems to be visible. One can see what appear like digital “brush strokes” in the shadow area behind the moon. And rainbow halo behind it.
DominatorPS3 believes this was done to hide a large object.
Unfortunately, DominatorPS3 has deleted his original video. He explains why here:

Only moments ago, the Soyuz rocket (TMA-01M) blasted off from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur Cosmodrome for a rendezvous with the Internation Space Station. This flight is coming only days after the 53rd anniversary of Sputnik. This is part of larger mission to revitalize the ISS.

Yup, it’s true. And the New Scientist puts it this way:
Future space probes that operate in cooperative swarms must commit hara-kiri if they begin to fail and risk damaging their comrades, says a recent patent application by NASA.
The agency foresees a day when space missions are undertaken not by one large spacecraft but by swarming formations of much smaller, cheaper ones. Such craft could collectively provide a “floating optics” system for a space telescope comprising separate craft flying in formation, for instance.
Hmm … is it just us, or doesn’t it seem like it would be smarter to create craft who could just avoid crashing into each other? No, that would be crazy.
And, come to think of it, what’s up with swarming space craft? Is that even a good idea? Especially if they’re in such risk of crashing into each other. We think the people at NASA have watched the opening of Revenge of the Sith one too many times.
