I know I have said it before, but thank God for SpaceX and Elon Musk.  Single-handedly they are driving us back into space. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Thank gosh Elon must is, because the US government doesn’t seem to be. China has a probe and lander approaching Mars. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

sell NASA to Elon Musk for a dollar?  It is because of things like this, and this. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who’d be as mad as I am at idiocy like this.)

A Chinese probe is bringing back rocks from the far side of the moon.  It is a very impressive technical accomplishment.  The Chinese are serious about space.  Thank God Elon Musk is, because the rest of the US government seems oblivious. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who would agree with every word)

SpaceX may use its future Starship to clean up orbital debris on its way back and forth to the Moon and Mars. Story here.  Is there anything Elon can’t do? (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

God bless Elon Musk.  Man, if he didn’t exist, we’d be required to invent him. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

SpaceX Starlink project is super interesting.  If he can pull it off, having satellite based internet access anywhere in the world would be way cool. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

SpaceX has done it.  The US is now back in the manned spaceflight business.  Looks like the first regular flight to the ISS in the Dragon capsule will be in September and will have 3 NASA astronauts and 1 JAXA astronaut. No more paying the Russians $70 million a seat.  Next stop, the moon and Mars. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who I have not doubt is really, really happy.)
