Do I start crowd-funding.....? :))

Would the payload allow for your booze?
"Yes" to the former and "I doubt it" to the latter... =))

Much to the dismay of some fellow Saffer astronomical types I have become a nimby when it comes to Starlink (no matter how much I think the technology is fantastic). Elon leave our skies free from your light and love of the $.

I understand he has been persuaded to paint the sats black and arrange some sort of 'covers'?

Launch scrubbed today and now 1757Z Friday.

Other news - Indian mission to the moon scheduled for July 22nd.

NASA prepare to land on asteroid Bennu in October for sampling while Japan is on its way back with samples from another, due to land Dec 6th.

Amazing times.

We do live in amazing times despite some of the other lunacy in the world.
