They really getting that Stage 1 landing on the barge done well lately.

#44

I assume that ties into this bit of news:


#45

Yea. Really interesting stuff


#46

While we wait on the Black hole image to drop… The Falcon Heavy is also getting ready to launch tonight. Keen on seeing them stick that triple landing this time.


#47

And here it is!


#48

I must say, I like it! Gave me some heebies


#49

Was hoping it would look more like Gargantua from Interstellar. But yes, it’s pretty incredible.


#50

That is so amazing. Like now there is actual observed proof of the existence of a black hole. Wow.

#52

That’s bloody awesome. I like how they found the rotation there. I have to wonder if it goes counter-clockwise on the other side of the equator/event horizon/whatever…

Interesting that this topic has skipped my radar. I just finished listening to A Man On The Moon on Audible. A great listen about the Apollo astronauts. Unlike most documentaries this reads like a fictional story.

Will check it out. I’m a bit moon-crazed at the moment (lunatic, in every sense) with it being the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. First Man is a pretty good read too.

#59

That was awesome

And then apparently the one that landed on the boat fell into the ocean as they brought it home
