Story here.  Whatever you think, Elon Musk is certainly ambitious, and that is required to get our morbid space program moving forward again. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

A hard hat dropped into the Mississippi river in 2015 is found on a beach in Ireland in 2020.  We all know waters circulate, but it is amazing to think how far and wide they travel.

Space tourists

SpaceX says they will take three tourists to the ISS next year.  While the idea of space tourists is at first pretty ridiculous and at a price tag of $55 million clearly elitist, on a longer term view, space tourism is probably a good thing as it will further commercialize and popularize space travel.  Frankly, back in 1969, I thought that in the 2000s we’d have stations in orbit with large number of people living and working in space.  Better late that never.

On the good side, it appears that they meant to.  I am happy for any news that suggests that we are making progress in space. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Apparently the Earth has picked up a new moon…a mini-moon.  Story here.  This is apparently not uncommon.  Space is endlessly fascinating.  We need to get the heck out there, quick. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
