They had a ton of rockets explode when testing that manned one they have now. I imagine it's expected.

And in other space news check out this Bond telescope fall. The second angle is amazing, they happened to be inspecting the cables with a drone right as they snapped.


This telescope is a large part of my childhood thanks to Goldeneye 64. That was the game we played all the time as early teens and this level was not the best but still in heavy rotation.

Those astronauts are going to have to pee a whole lot to provide enough drinking water to entire third world countries.

Not sure if it's the same everywhere but down here the Christmas Star (aka Jupiter and Saturn) is visible for about another hour. I just checked it out with binoculars. It crazy how much of a difference only binoculars make. With the naked eye it looks kinda like just 1 planet but with them it's clearly two.

I guess we have to expect such lunacy from someone whose all-time favorite television series is My Favorite Martian.

Elon Musk, now the world's richest person, is selling all his possessions so so people know he's serious about colonizing Mars

I remember watching that show, but I don't remember why.

At this rate, Ray Walston will never be able to get back to Mars.

That's really cool.
The whole 10 year thing before they plan on bringing the samples back seems odd to me.
Why couldn't they figure how to do it why they were already there?
It's like going back to the store to pick up something that you forgot that was what you originally went to the store for anyway.......
