Another awesome and exciting launch, the first crewed Dragon 2 mission! Flawless launch, flawless separation, and she’s flying free, en route to the ISS. Oh, and stage 1 booster landed successfully as well. I’m as giddy as all get go.
Best of all? One of the two astronauts saying, “Let’s light this candle” several minutes before launch. Classic words.
Well, alas, weather scrubbed the launch today. So here’s a picture of the Earth and the Moon… taken from around Saturn!
While it may be “Launch America,” with the astronauts being Bob & Doug, there’s a definite Canadian angle to this as well… take of eh!
This is exciting as all get out. I’m keeping the live feed from SpaceX/NASA in the corner of my monitor as I work and I’ve let everyone know I’m unavailable for an hour this afternoon. Not. Missing. This.
Check out the live feed, on right now!

Here’s a wonderful take on the Exquisite Corpse art exercise, done through dance!
I love the wordplay in the title too, taking a twist to the french to return aliveness to the name. Very cool!
(Exquisite Corpse is a group art piece where one person begins a piece of art, and exposes but a sliver to the next artist who adds to it, who then also covers up most of their work for the next artist to add to it in turn.
