We celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission by asking, should we return to the moon? What scientific knowledge could be gained by going back? Will Google's Lunar X prize mean a robotoic presence by 2015? And who owns the moon? Plus, in the news, electronic circuits printed by inkjet, genes for maths and reading ability, computer programmes to pinpoint disease food-poisoning outbreaks, and can elephants cry?

If we do return, +45 years on, that flag is almost certainly bleached white now by UV exposure ...

Censoring visitor comments? What kind of racket are you guys running here? We still didn't go to the moon.
