The cat's attempt to pretend it was not with the dog was undermined by the dog's insistence on gripping the cat's lead with its mouth.

A new study suggests that each month oxygen from Earth travels along the solar wind, eventually reaching the lunar surface.

"But if you're hoping that it will one day make it easier to settle on our celestial neighbour, think again."

compels me to point out oxygen is not rare on the Moon. Regolith is about 40% oxygen. Of course, it's bound in chemical compounds but then so is most of the oxygen on Earth.
