Odd space news

Story here.  There is something deeply weird in Japanese culture right now.  It is as if the men have forgotten or lost interest in pursuing a spouse in any normal fashion. A 44 year old billionaire ought to not have much trouble finding female companionship. Jeff Bezos didn’t have any problem and he was married at the time. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

As I’ve said, generally Russia is a paper tiger.  However, that doesn’t mean they still can’t do something stupid and get a bunch a people killed. That will happen if they keep this up.

More space news.  It looks like 2020 could turn out to be a banner year in spaceflight, much like 1961 and 1969.  I’ve waited about 45 years for this to happen.  I am glad to see it finally happening. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Space 2020

Here is a very nice rundown of all the space launches expected for 2020.  This looks to be a banner year for spaceflight including the return of the US putting its own astronauts in space again. (about damn time!)

Also, we are getting another close fly-by today.  We need a better system to detect these near Earth asteroids.

Looks like the USN is getting a new fleet of harbor and patrol craft.  Good news, I hope. (post for Jeff “Inch High” Groves who misses the smell of salt air)

Russian spy ship

A Russian intelligence gathering ship is off a US sub base off the coast of South Carolina.  This is just more of Putin trying to look like he is flexing muscles.  As I’ve repeatedly said Russians doing things like this is a sign of their weakness, not their strength.

Looks like the Russians have one less Felon. Given the cost, the Russians can ill afford this type of loss.

Damn.  We need to get this done and get it right now. ( Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger who would be really pissed off right now.)
