    Will it be a 4:33 launch on Saturday or will the time be different?

    Probably will since according to the weather app on my phone (which is always right) it’s like an 80% chance of TStorms most of Saturday. Today was like 30%

    Watched at video on the Bootes Void last night. It’s so big and empty that if our solar system was in the middle of it, and our rate of technological advancement was the same, we wouldn’t have known anything else existed outside of our own solar system until the 1970’s.

    I get that there are lots of variables in scheduling a launch across multiple locations, but trying for an afternoon launch in Florida during summer always has a very good chance of storms

    Let the conspiracies begin. Lose signal of the landing, cut back to the rocket successfully landed.

    The future of space travel seems to be very strongly headed towards the commercialization of the launch platforms.
