Lazy, uneducated, hunch based skepticism is an obsession for about 25% of America.

Hope it's clear tomorrow eve. Gonna see me some Jupiter and his 4 galilean moons as well as a little Saturn (no rings without a telescope).

It amazes me how late they fired up the landing engines/rockets... if there's any sort of malfunction or even a slight delay, your expensive robot goes splat.

Meanwhile Hayabusa2 data is starting to flow - seems like asteroids/sample return missions already confirm organic life in deep space but just not as sexy as Mars.

SN11 is already being rolled out to the launch pad. Launch should happen this month.

A crewed mission to Mars by 2024 is lol. But they're going to advance space travel 20 years in the 5 thats for sure.
