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.

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.
