So why did space agencies abandon the moon? Why don't astronauts walk on the moon anymore? The cost and danger of sending humans into space, combined with huge leaps in technology that enable us to see further than any human astronaut could hope to travel, has made returning to the moon a low priority for Nasa. Space agencies have instead opted for the lightest, leanest possible crafts to travel ever-further into space, where they can send back images and information from areas of the universe far beyond the limits incumbent on a manned mission. It has led to the discovery of hundreds of new worlds beyond our own solar system. In fact, until recently, the focus had evolved so far from manned missions that Nasa lacked the technology to launch one. In 2009, scientist Jeff Hanley told Space magazine : "The amount of rocket energy it takes to accelerate those kinds of payloads away from Earth doesn't exist anymore.

GEORGE TOWN: Penang is gearing up for the arrival of some 17,000 passengers from five cruise ships which are scheduled to make a port call at the Swettenham Pier on March 13. First up is the Penang Port where a spokesman told theSun cruise operators are expected to be using the "tandem-boat" method to let passengers to disembark. He said this meant the ships will be anchored in the middle of the Penang channel while smaller crafts will ferry passengers who wish to go on land and disembark at the Pier. He said another disembarkation method was to let the cruise ships take turns letting passengers leave the vessel and that the ships would leave the Pier and be anchored at sea until it was time to return to pick up their travellers. He nonetheless said this depended on the "window" as there may be passengers who wanted to return to the ship earlier than the time allocated.

Sputnik News An arts and crafts teacher at one of the Iranian primary schools teaches girls to sew dolls from scrap materials. Some of the schoolgirls like their handcrafted toys so much that they ditch their Barbies. Masoumeh Keshavarz works as an elementary school teacher in Bandar-e Anzali, an Iranian city on the Caspian Sea. With genuine enthusiasm, her pupils do needlework: they create dolls, sew clothes for them and even make little toy passports. Girls handcraft their dolls from recycled material: sackcloth, bottle caps and hemp ropes, the young teacher told the Iranian news agency ISNA. At first, we did more traditional crafts out of colored paper, yarn and fabric, but children are much more interested in sewing toys.

It's good. It is work but the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with. PHOTOS: Back Together! Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner Spotted In The City Of Love After months of speculation the two called it quits in June 2015. A year later Garner kind of dissed her ex by calling him a complicated guy in Vanity Fair. She also addressed rumors that Affleck had hooked up with the couple's nanny Christine Ouzounian . We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny , she added. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. Affleck is clearly a devoted dad. He and Garner have been spotted vacationing with their kids and they even live on the same property. He told US that his career is hugely important but family comes first and loves spending time with them which includes doing arts and crafts.

Its about how you train. Its about how those things help your movement. She had written the song, Trust in Me, before Nike approached her. I realized it would be perfect, because the lyrics say, Put your trust in me.

And this is the reason for the heavy snows and the floods and the changes in wind currents that are sudden and dramatic and that help clear the atmosphere and set free the people so that they can continue to question and think. Wayne: What is actually creating the magnetism at the Vostok site? It is that observatory. There are huge crystals that are emitting certain types of magnetic emissions and this creates the homing device. It is a similar type of energetic to that which is transpiring in Bimini, where the energy can actually draw into itself crafts and ships and sink them. It used to be that great spacecraft, not quite the size of a mother ship, but of a cargo ship, would have equipment that would be lowered into this region on a magnetic beam somewhat like a magnetic elevator. And from this region the equipment would be disbursed as needed to other locations.
