Time to go to sleep. Unlike the Shatner, who’s been to space, I don’t think i’ll ever as much as take a plane (again). I am a hobbit in spirit, and to me staying at home is no problem for the first maybe 10 or 12 days… :grin:

Nighties lovelies!

Also: meanwhile, the JWST started its travel to space, by road and boat

Now that has reached Guyana safely, the James Webb Space Telescope will be thoroughly checked (again) as they ready the rocket. Launch is scheduled for December 18th and let’s hope this date is go, after years and hundreds of millions of dollars in delays.

Awesome hunt… awesome story… The one and only place of the original Michaelsoft Binbows! (From a shop that’s been gone for 19 years and yet will live forever on the Internet…) :grin:

I’m watching “Squid Game” like everyone else. It is really good ( and gory).

Good night, lovelies. :heart:

…and now I’m going to bed. Nighties lovelies!

Also: who wouldn’t want a (Lego) Soyuz MS to orbit around the house…?

It’s just a proposal so far, but look at it… how cool it is? The three modules detach and the two crewed modules can be open for inspection! :grinning:

Squid Game is getting more intense.
and there’s this (posted in link-in-text because forum gets bugged).

ALSO:
Elon Musk is now worth $230 billion - exactly as much as the CEOs of Tesla, SpaceX, and the Boring Company combined.

Time to go to bed… nighties lovelies!

Also: on one hand, the space probe Lucy has been launched succesfully…

…on the other hand, Chinese space station Shenzhou-13 has been boarded by it first long-term crew, who will stay aboard for 6 months and includes Wang Yaping, who will be the first female taikonaut to perform a EVA.

It can’t be ruled out that sometime in the future astronauts from the ESA might be invited to work at the Shenzhou-13; crewman Ye Guangfu already performed part of his training along with ESA astronauts. Unfortunately, NASA astronauts have it harder since NASA is forbidden by law to cooperate with the CNSA.

I’ve been enjoying it. I plan to finish it next day I have off.

Ames Window it’s an impressive illusion, since it is partially cultural… as he says, it won’t work with people who aren’t used to see rectangular windows. And stuff like this is an issue that some people have when they’ve been blind and then begin to see… without the training our brains have since birth, they don’t see people or stuff coming in and going away, but stuff becoming larger and smaller for no reason, and often is distressing to them. We don’t just see, we learn to see…

And now i’m off to bed. Nighties lovelies!

Also: it’s a bit crazy, but cool!

Wonder what will it be for Christmas… :thinking:

Sorry, what was the question again? :mouse2:

The Answer and the Question cannot be known at the same time; if you know the answer, you cannot know the question, and vice versa.

He is darn good. I never saw him blink and watching the video at a low quality, I thought it was a very advanced robot(he got carried by a guy to the area as if he really was a robot).

Timezone lovelies! :heart:

Also: space probe Lucy might be experiencing an oopsie…

https://blogs.nasa.gov/lucy/2021/10/17/lucy-spacecraft-healthy-solar-arrays-being-analyzed/

The potential trouble with one array not latched is that it could move during maneuvers, and since they’re quite large (7.10 meters in diameter) the momentum from the unlatched end could interact with the maneuvering. There’s no hurry since Lucy won’t do any serious maneuvering until december 2022, but NASA is working on the issue. Currently the panels are generating 18.1 kW, and over there in Jupiter’s orbit they’ll be generating only 500 W, which is enough to power the probe… but they must be fully deployed to maximize the surface exposed to the Sun.
