The first Starship orbital test launch should take off in March. That’ll be a major milestone, fully successful or not. It’ll be the first reentry test.

    I was up last night to watch the launch, only to have it scrubbed at the last minute. They will try again on Thursday.

      I don’t normally watch these, but I happened to be awake within a half hour of the launch last night and decided to watch. That last minute scrub was disappointing.

        They always are, but I am glad that they do and potentially save lives. About 20 s0me years ago, we had several rockets blow up after launch. A lot has been learned since.

    Black Hole Size Comparison: 3d Animation Comparison. I never heard of the Star named Stephenson before. (3:51)

    Great short little clip. Only thing missing is a relative comparison grid at the conclusion to give the viewers a sense of these behemoths vis a vis the size of the solar system, milky way galaxy, distance to Andromeda etc. Done very elegantly here (6:51 minutes)

    Star Size Comparison 2:

    Keeping negative energy confined and sequestered is “the way God runs the world” according to a comment of Richard Feynman in one of his essays on QED. The idea being that subtracting negatives is mathematically equivalent to adding positives. Prisons, hells, etc.

      (Live) Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus:

      The ancients would be doing nasty things to virgins if they new this. Jupiter and Venus – King of the Gods and Venus Goddess of Love. Maybe the God of Weapons making – Vulcan – who was Venus’s mate will get so jealous he quits. Sorry, didn’t have time to find out more. Conjunction suggests conjugation and conjugal.

    This is interesting.

    Fragments of a Meteor spotted over South Texas Found:

    Near El Sauz (TX). But that’s in Starr County. What are the odds of a Meteor hitting a Star (r County)? Near Nuevo Leon and Reynoso in Mexico across the border. Lion and Fox? Meteor flew across Tex last Wednesday. Interesting because from the bruohaha over baloons and shootdowns one might surmise that the Air Force is on patrol and practicing shootdowns. But who knows? It’s now officially a meteorite. Right?

    Asteroid Apophis is coming back!
    In 2029 for an orbit 10 times closer than the 🌓 moon, Luna /approx 23,000 miles, closer than many satellites. Erp. Then returns in 2068.

    This is more accurate:
    Really? From the above wiki:
    ] Apophis is the Greek name of Apep, an enemy of the Ancient Egyptian sun-god Ra. He is the Uncreator, an evil serpent that dwells in the eternal darkness of the Duat and tries to swallow Ra during his nightly passage. Apep is held at bay by Set, the Ancient Egyptian god of storms and the desert.[
    There’s no doubt we humans have been mighty mighty sinful. Angry at the Sun God Ra? Sun powered by nuclear fusion. We’ve been toying around with the nuclear sticks (they’re all fusion bombs in the big powers now) rather mucho of lateskis. Compare the little film clip with the wiki article if you like.
    How the Moon formed 4.5 billion years ago:
    Yikes, Mr greenjeans, was it a good idea for superman to become a bit fay?

    Ever think the real high priests know what’s really happenin’ an it’s even worse than this? Apophis was discovered in 2004. Did we develop the instruments just in time, really? How very likely. Does God want us to know just to watch us go bananas? Is this the real reason Putin said wtf? – because it simply may not matter all that much? Is there a secret ice age deep tunnel under the sea of Azov? Why does the myth say the entrance to the Underworld is in the Chersonese (Kherson area)? What were they really fighting about. Is the plan to blow up a nuclear reactor so as to drill a hole deep under the surface?

    Please do not be alarmed. The man who wrote the above message has been apprehended. Thank you. We think he might have bumped his head.

      And if you think that’s nuts … Why did Obama overthrow the Kiev government in 2014 and try to seize Sebastopol? Why would nuclear war be risked? Did Disraeli and Queen Victoria know something too? Hmm. Wait, what, who are you, why are you entering my house, I said I was just joking .. aaaghh
      Again, people of the internet, fear not. That person too is now under our control. You may return to ..
