Space Exploration megathread

Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

This is interesting.




They apparently both went in the drink but came out intact. Since he's saying they'll use it for Starlink, that implies that it'll be a little bit of an experiment to see if they still perform well. Still, always cool to see all the little things they're working on.

Glad to see. I’ve seen a lot of very smart women develop algorithms not get their due.

Technically, Katie Bouman was only one scientist out of many hundreds that worked on that project. She's getting all the credit because of an incorrect tweet claiming she "Single handedly" wrote the algorithm. But that couldn't be further from the case. Out of the ~900,000 lines of code for the algorithm, Katie only wrote about 2,000 lines. She just happened to be featured in a photo and the media has run with it.

Also... somebody tell Nancy it's "STEM" not "STEAM."

They added arts in for some reason, so now it's STEAM.

Stem doesn't cover the feelings/creative side that libs so desperately cling to like the right clings to their guns. Steam does.
