Our beautiful home

With the new Dragon II spacecraft approaching

A new dawn

In more ways than one

“We can be united by a cause that’s not based on fear, threat or common enemy but rather on a bold endeavor, an insatiable curiosity to go beyond what is known and to do what has never been done. We Humans were built for Exploration.  And we were built to do it together.”

(Who has a glorious and delightful series on her twitter feed giving a tour of the station to the little earth plush that arrived with the Dragon II… very cute!)

SpaceX Crew Capsule: Docked!

March 3, 2019

This might be even more exciting than the launch!

Successful docking, hatch opening, and the first crew to enter the Dragon II in orbit (excitingly led by CSA Astronaut David Saint-Jacques).  Amazing times.

SpaceX Crew Capsule: In Space!

March 2, 2019

Big huge congrats to SpaceX and NASA for the successful launch of the Dragon II crew capsule!  Just finished watching the launch livestreamed and it was exciting all the way.  So awesome to see pad 39A one step closer to crewed flight.  Docking in just over a day is going to be just as exciting, woo!

How could it not be about the Falcon Heavy?  Especially when this shot is so insanely wicked:

And this one is so darn pretty:

And these ones are equally epic:

And, of course, a bit of cruising music as you head out into the stars…

Truth be told, I’m still pretty giddy about that launch.  One amazing experience to witness live. (via livestream…)

SpaceX Amazement

August 31, 2017

Came across this picture today that adds some perspective on the SpaceX barge landings… and makes them even more impressive:

That’s a 737.  SpaceX is vertically landing 737s on a barge in the middle of the rolling ocean with sub-metre precision.  Holy the cow!
