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.)

Suddenly, the US government is becoming more and more transparent about the UFO issue.  Why?  (h/t to Jeff “Inch High” Groves for bringing the article to my attention.)

I noted yesterday that SpaceX had successfully caught both halves of the nose shroud for the first time.  Now we have video. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Two new firsts.  Caught both halves of the nose shroud and turned around a booster in 51 days.  This Elon Musk guy is on to something. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger who I am sure is loving this.)

On a completely different subject.  More and more of this stuff is creeping out into the open.

USMC apparently has one.  Wonder what they are using it for?
