T-minus 10 hours - Artemis Mission to Moon
« on: August 29, 2022, 11:58:09 AM »




Edit:. This video explains the mission, flight path, and duration etc.  17,000mph and crazy altitude gains in the first few minutes.

From the surface Earth looks flat.  From space Earth looks round.  Now what?

Nevermind... The launch was scrubbed because of cooling issues in the tank or something.  Friday might be the next window, i'll try to update.

That's what she said.
Flat-Earthers seem to have a very low standard of evidence for what they want to believe but an impossibly high standard of evidence for what they don’t want to believe.

T minus how long now? lol
Dr. Frank is a physicist. He says it's impossible. So it's impossible.
My friends, please remember Tom said this the next time you fall into the trap of engaging him, and thank you. :)

Putin is laughing his ass off.

I can't wait to either watch it blow up or bend over on its trajectory only to go Kaplunk in the ocean.

Camel will tell us it was a fine day, next is Mars.  I heard a Tesla plant will be the first thing erected on the moon.

T-minus eventually.  Although, to be fair (in case anyone is interested in that), these things rarely go off first try for NASA.

How hard is it to understand that if you're going to get something into orbit it can't just go straight up like in a cartoon.
Sheesh...

How hard is it for you to understand there is a dome above us and nothing goes up very far. You're the one watching CGI cartoons of NASA fake BS.

Fake currency, fake news, fake space, fake globe...a fake

Not hard at all.  All we have to do is look at who's making that claim and we understand completely.  So, J-Man, rest in that we understand exactly what you mean.

On topic though, I am watching this closely.  I hope they can make the next window, but I'd rather they get it right even if they have more work to do.

The idea of us going back to the moon in my lifetime does make me somewhat giddy with excitement.

They're trying again on Saturday, apparently.

I'm stoked.

The launch window conflicts with a very important race (AMA Pro MX final) I have promised to watch with others, but that's what split screen is for, right?

Artemis takes precedent as the racing does not get realy interesting until after the window closes.

This time around the launch window is also (at least for me in CA) much more convenient.  The previous one was something like 5am-7am PDT, to early for me.  But I'll be watching this time!
