SpaceX can beat NASA and land on moon 'within two years', says Musk

SpaceX can beat NASA and land on moon 'within two years', says Musk Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of SpaceX, has claimed it would be easier for his company to land on the moon than try to convince NASA that the company is up to the task. In an interview with Time magazine, Musk acknowledged he was going to "sound pretty crazy", before stating: "I think we could land on the moon in less than two years." Marking the 50th anniversary since the Apollo 11 mission in which humans first stepped onto the moon, NASA chief Jim Bridenstine has told Sky News the agency is sending a woman to the moon in 2024. © Press Release The picture of SpaceX's new rocket Starship.

Along with Mercury in retrograde, the full moon is a pretty popular scapegoat for bad luck and bizarre behavior. So rest easy (or maybe not): If people seem to act crazy during the full Moon , their behavior is likely pretty similar during the rest of the lunar cycle as well.

But does it, really ? According to Eric Chudler, a neuroscientist and research associate professor at the University of Washington, the answer is a deeply emphatic Now, let’s pause for a moment to consider that there are people who swear by the moon ’s influence, and many of these people are intelligent

Along with Mercury in retrograde, the full moon is a pretty popular scapegoat for bad luck and bizarre behavior. Encounter someone acting strangely? Blame it on the lunar phases! It's said that crime rates increase and emergency rooms are much busier during the full moon (though a 2004 study debunked this claim). Plus, there's that whole werewolf thing. Why would this be? The reasoning is that the moon, which affects the ocean's tides, probably exerts a similar effect on us, because the human body is made mostly of water.

This belief that the moon influences behavior is so widely held—reportedly, even 80 percent of nurses and 64 percent of doctors think it's true, according to a 1987 paper published in the Journal of Emergency Medicine [PDF]—that in 2012 a team of researchers at Université Laval's School of Psychology in Canada decided to find out if mental illness and the phases of the moon are linked.

To test the theory, the researchers evaluated 771 patients who visited emergency rooms at two hospitals in Montreal between March 2005 and April 2008. The patients chosen complained of chest pains, which doctors could not determine a medical cause for the pains. Many of the patients suffered from panic attacks, anxiety and mood disorders, or suicidal thoughts.

When the researchers compared the time of the visits to the phases of the moon, they found that there was no link between the incidence of psychological problems and the four lunar phases, with one exception: in the last lunar quarter, anxiety disorders were 32 percent less frequent. "This may be coincidental or due to factors we did not take into account," Dr. Geneviève Belleville, who directed the team of researchers, said. "But one thing is certain: we observed no full-moon or new-moon effect on psychological problems."

So rest easy (or maybe not): If people seem to act crazy during the full moon, their behavior is likely pretty similar during the rest of the lunar cycle as well.
