    "Alien Planets" series on Netflix is right up my alley.

    I'm gonna plug "The Farthest: Voyager in Space" again, because it is probably my favorite space documentary of all time. Like one of the scientists in that doc said, "you can only discover the solar system once", and you really get that sense of "holy shit" from watching it.

    C1533149-B0D0-4968-9742-4E8C1D18343C.jpeg Very crappy pic I took of Saturn, Jupiter and a few of its moons.

    Still trying to properly align the phone with the view finder. Seeing Saturn’s ring was way more impressive than in the pic

    Let me throw my shitty phone pic in the ring.

    Looks awesome through the scope, I can see 4 of Jupiter's moons, and the rings of Saturn are clearly defined.

    this sounds like not a good idea

    Inspiration4 is the world’s first all-civilian mission to space. The mission will be commanded by Jared Isaacman, the 37-year-old founder and Chief Executive Officer of Shift4 Payments and an accomplished pilot and adventurer.

    Had a Martian sunrise picture as my wallpaper for years. I hope we land humans there sometime in my lifetime.

    Huge day today. Perseverance landing coverage starts at 2:15 EST. “7 minutes of terror” should end around 4 EST.

    This is HUGE.


    Perseverance may confirm ancient life. It has test tubes that may ultimately return Martial soil to Earth. It has a drone. It has equipment that may help humans figure out how to synthesize oxygen on Mars.

    Rendering of how the landing hopefully goes:



    It’s completely AI controlled. NASA won’t know if it worked until minutes after.

    The AI control is pretty standard I think. 5-20 minute comms lag depending on he orbit.
