Super fantastic, dab. Great to hear important good news in these stressful times!

And While we won't be settling on (Saturn's moon) Enceladus...
latest news is a more detailed read on it's geysers composition. They seem to contain close to, or the same chemistry that Earth's deep sea vents - the ones where life evolved through straight biochemical means instead of the biochemical actions started with light from the sun- have.

Some were postulating that maybe Life started not only in Earth's oceans (as been described for a century or less), but maybe down around those vents. Interesting to how and why those lifeforms would drift, swim upwards as the decreasing pressure would injure or kill them.

Soon I'll have pictures of out of this world just have to survive May because of work and June because I have to find a new place and move but August there is going to be an awesome total solar eclipse! I'll be driving from Vancouver down to Oregon (probably somewhere within two hours of Portland) to get so shots of the eclipse. I am so out of practice on my astrophotography but I hope to have a few clear days in between my crazy life these next two moths to get back into astrophotography so that I am ready for the 2 minute and 17 second event. One of which I've been waiting since the day I got into astronomy decades ago. Now I am just praying that the weather will be kind! I've missed one solar eclipse before and several other big Astro events due to pesky clouds!!! A week befor I may change plans and go somewhere else (even fly if I have to) if there is even a hint of cloudy skies on my first location! The eclipse will be on August 21.

And thanks for the congrats guys!!!! I can now finally think of buying my first home since I am no longer contract! Been waiting for three years now to buy a place but each year it seems to get more expensive to buy lol. My job before this one paid much less (private lab) so now I can (sort of) afford a place. But back to topic! Dazzle isn't it amazing how life can flourish in the most extreame environments??? And life has a crazy way of adopting to changing environments! That's why I have huge hope that some of saturns moons may actually harbour life albeit microbial life.

unlikely that we'll ever see this thing fly, but it's cool that plans for something like this are being worked on: DARPA Picks Design for Next-Generation Spaceplane

They do have a year-round on line presence just dot com the above name.

It's a very interesting, and fun endeavor.

dab - forgot to add good luck when you're ready to go house hunting!

And, ooooooo, you're going for the total eclipse! Near swoon! Hope the sky will be clear!
Yeah, all that deep sea vent life does raise possibility of life down in the depths of Saturn's moon's. And Jupiter's ? Europa.


Missed launch.
OTOH NASA gave us the Class of 2017 New Astros!

Buzz is still active in space exploration (he's a prominent lecturer at FIT in Melbourne, Florida).

I used to think he was past his time for failing to get in line with the times. He is someone who doesn't believe in returning to the moon to go to Mars. After completion of my master's project, I can say that I'm fully with him and that I think the moon is a massive waste of money, resources, and time. And it makes me realize, after having done the work myself, just how smart of a guy he must be.

So didn't quite realize there's such a backlash against NASA and space in general.

Flat Earth
NASA stages all the photos of everything
Gravity isn't real
Child Slave Camp on Mars

Can we send these people into space?
