    If Climate Change was talked about in the 50s as much as it is today, you just know there would have been some amazing science-fiction short stories from guys like Ellison, Bradbury, Zelazny, Heinlein.

    Stuff like Venus being populated a long time ago by humans who ruined the planet and some refuges managed to escape and inhabit earth as its ice age ended, etc, only for the cycle to continue.

    Sorry just saw this. There was rain all around but surprisingly they managed to get it off, low clouds but managed to see it for about 30 seconds or so.

    I didn’t even go outside because I figured there was no way with how it looked outside. Cool they were able to light it

    I caught it like 20 minutes after launch. Saw the highlights of the launch, and the booster land.

    This is not great. Israel crash landed a craft into the moon, and now suspended, dormant bugs are on the moon, but are almost certainly still alive.

    It’s of zero consequence outside of the spot where it crashed, it’s not like they can reanimate without water, and even if they can survive decades under most conditions the radiation will kill them off before anything happens there.

    Bad news: 6 years of space radiation doesn’t kill mice sperm. So your mom may need to get her stomach pumped if she wants to go to space.

    This has got to be the first time in 30 years that somebody has gotten upset from a ‘yo momma’ joke. And it wasn’t even particularly funny or original.

    It did not even occur to me that you might take it personally, but I apologize. No harm was intended.

    Its absolutely insane to think about the amount of massive storms and how big they are on Jupiter. Unreal. and to think our solar system, let alone Jupiter, isn't even the size of an atom compared to the universe...

    That was my initial thought, but that would've actually been bad. Inspiring people to care about space and explore is a good thing, and having a massive disaster would not be great.

    Was really hoping he'd have a massive heart attack on the trip.

    Fair (though there was an 18 year old on that rocket, so he's totally innocent).

    I will say, I'm not sure how much these billionaire vanity trips are actually moving the ball forward.

    excuse my (mostly) incurable optimism but could three successful private space launches in 9 days be something all Americans rally around together? four? five?
