To Infinity and Beyond! (Mmmmm Mars)
« on: February 25, 2017, 09:23:39 AM »
I wonder how long it'll take to terraform Mars so we can get some waves?

Last week's Space-X landing is pretty impressive to see.



I'm the first to say we should be working on saving Earth before worrying about Mars, but we're losing that battle, and something random could (will eventually) happen anyway.  Might as well back up humanity if we can.

The sonic boom on this landing was less than the prior one. I wonder if that means they are getting better at controlling descent.

It still rattles our windows. The first time it set off car alarms in the neighborhood.
