For the Insight Mars Observer

Quote:

According to data retrieved by InSight, Mars undergoes quite a bit more seismic activity than we ever knew. NASA has now recorded over 400 quakes from InSight’s time on the planet. Unlike on Earth, Mars’s quakes aren’t caused by the shifting of tectonic plates, but rather the continued cooling of the planet, along with other processes.


The quakes aren’t strong — the majority register below a 3 on the Richter scale — but they’re enough to cause at least a gentle shake on the neighbor we’re only truly beginning to learn about.

i'm very pleased that the media seems to have stopped using the term earthquake to refer to a seismic event on another planet lol.

The red lettuce grown on the ISS is declared as safe and as nutritious as its earthbound cousin!

The undesired shower I got from Mother Nature 150 miles south gave me an early indicator

Was turning the corner to my driveway when they announced on the radio it was scrubbed. Bummer.

Every time I see something related to Space X, I think of him, and he's an arsehole.

Remembering how in class in the early '60's they'd roll in the 6 plus ft high TV stand with B&W television to watch the Mercy series of space flights.

Now...fast forward to today.....

I'm watching beautifully clear images from several vantage point at the launch pad, and inside the rocket's cabin where the astronauts are from my smartphone's screen. I share back to my FB news feed the live video that's going on.
It's thrilling!

Course I'm a bit disappointed - but they have to be extra cautious. What helped me lower my disappointment was the NASA news anchor say ".... it's a heck of a rehearsal...". A good POV!

Hopefully Sat will have a successful launch, and evetual docking at the ISS.

Unhinged is a better description, and the moral gray area of a self righteous egomaniac.

Whose ego sometimes does the right thing, and isn’t driven by money.

If you want someone who ruins space and has a name, that’s Jeff Bezos.
