I'm concerned that this will have a deleterious impact on NASA's Muslim outreach efforts, which was NASA's primary focus during the O years. Focus on the mission, people.

You need to stop with all that factual meandering.

A launch is always spectacular here on the Space Coast.

Not exactly a Saturn V is it?

It's about damn time. I'm amazed at how things have changed in the years since the Shuttle stopped flying. The suits actually look comfortable. The capsule used to be wall-to-wall switches. Now, three monitors. Crew sits comfortably. Even Mission Control has a different look.

Artemis, the next moon launch, is going to use the Space Launch System which will be more powerful than the Saturn V and will look a lot more like the traditional Apollo capsule setup some of us were used to seeing. Very excited to see that one launch.

SpaceX’s newly launched capsule with four astronauts arrived Monday at the International Space Station, their new home until spring. The Dragon capsule pulled up and docked late Monday night, following a 27-hour, completely automated flight from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the AP reports. The linkup occurred 262 miles above Idaho. “Oh, what a good voice to hear,” space station astronaut Kate Rubins called out when the Dragon's commander, Mike Hopkins, first made radio contact. “We can’t wait to have you on board,” she added after the two spacecraft were latched together.
