Photographic Tribute to Dr. Horace Crater - On the 10th May 2006, Malcolm Smith had organised a meeting at the British Interplanetary Society in London. Some of the photographs taken on that day are presented here in memory of the late professor of physics Dr. Horace Crater who taught for over 40 years at the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI).

Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C - Journal of Space Exploration, 2016, Vol: 5 No 2. Authors: Carlotto MJ, Ridge FL and Sirisena A.
The authors present an analysis of Apollo 15 and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter images of two unusual features in the crater Paracelsus C on the far side of the moon. At first glance these structures appear to be walls or towers on the lunar surface. By combining multiple images we show the larger feature, oriented in a northeast/southwest direction, is not simply a wall but two walls on either side of a narrow valley or "passageway".

The Mounds of Cydonia: Elegant Geology, or Tetrahedral Geometry and Reactions of Pythagoras and Dirac? - Journal of Space Exploration, 2016, Volume: 5, No 3. Authors: Crater HW, McDaniel SV and Sirisena A.
Based on high resolution images from the ESA Mars express and NASA orbiter HiRise cameras, this paper gives new in-depth analysis of the remarkable geometric distribution of certain "mounds" or hill-like features in the Cydonia region of Mars. It validates the earlier measurements obtained using the lower resolution NASA Viking images, which hinted strongly at artificial surface interventions and adds new information regarding the geometry.
