Believe it or not, the last time we set foot on the Moon was almost half a century ago. The NASA Space Program might not be what it once was, but with an increased focus on travel to the Red Planet, there’s also renewed interest in using the Moon as a pit-stop of sorts along the way. If all the technological and training advances go according to plan, setting foot on the Moon won’t be entirely necessary in the grand scheme of the voyage, but that hasn’t stopped a few enterprising designers and engineers from dreaming up some ways the far-from-home astronauts could enjoy their “lunar shore leave.” Andrew Fabishevskiy drew up plans for a NASA motorcycle built around the idea of a simple electric bike concept outfitted with a trellis frame housing to contain the battery and integral component parts (much like the ISS and Lunar Lander), along with hub-mounted motors that drive both the front and rear wheels during operation. Our initial reaction was to dismiss the concept outright, but is a two-wheeled Lunar Rover Bike really any more ridiculous than riding in a car on the Moon? What about if it works better than its four-wheeled counterpart? Check out the images from the Andrew Fabishevskiy NASA Motorcycle Concept at the link below.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
