You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

Edit to add from the forecast:

As for the recovery area, weather is favorable until Thursday when a low pressure system may move
into the area, increasing winds and seas.  This low will migrate west and possibly impact Florida by the weekend.

1031 is now vertical, based on an Instagram post from an employee. I'm gonna avoid posting it because he is clearly a new employee and excited about his job.

DISH network is again airing the launch live in HD for those who have it stateside.  Check the channel listing for coverage...
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."
