    Hey, if they can land the boosters on the money, they can land the car! :D

    My audio jack doesn't work, so I'll have to wait to use headphones. But I really liked the analysis and explanations that were provided.

    The delays also drive home how far away from the launch/recovery pads the VAB is.

    Might have made the flight more interesting at some point, though. :D

    Heavy sigh.
    I could ask what you think she would like instead but that would be wrong.

    She's a space archaeologist called Dr Space Junk, that should count for something.

    Sounds to me more like she's a self-proclaimed "pioneer" with delusions of grandeur. Her demonstrated inability to separate her political correctness from her "analysis" of things in her "field" just shows that she can't be counted upon to draw any meaningful conclusions from anything that won't be thoroughly tainted by her own biases.

    Dr Space Junk? There's no junk involved here. All boosters deorbited, and the upper stage has left earth orbit. As they say in court, She has no standing.

    I don't think it's the pay.....I believe it is the tenure. Accountability disappears with tenure. A protected academic class.

    So THAT's what the bottom of Starman's spacesuit looks like!

    I'm wondering: Is he straddling the center console? Or are there two Starmen in that photo?
