Over the Moon

Published every Monday
distill example

Space exploration has taken off again, though the exact course of how private actors and governments will work together as they head for the stars is as unknown as the deepest reaches of the galaxy.

Only the biggest busts and triumphs in space are covered in the traditional press, though we know that many people are interested in much more than that.. Articles in the Over the Moon Distill include developments for sky-scraping giants such as SpaceX and Blue Origin but also smaller players trying to break through the atmosphere with their own ideas. 

The pieces themselves come from a diverse range of sources, from mainstream outlets to sites that are specialized in space exploration to those that are devoted to certain companies or the space startup scene. Universities and research institutes also play a major role in pushing everything forward, and this newsletter regularly features breakthroughs from them.
