Video blank!


It can take a while to join the video stream if you join late.  The recording should be online in a few hours.
Thanks.
Just bad luck I guess... I was late to the party ;)

Certainly!
Morpheus tests are always awesome!
TBH, I enjoyed watching the Proton go up last night and was glad it was successful...
You know what I mean ;)

The lander is due to fly in the next 10 to 15 minutes.

We had our server down right at the top of the hour (planned maintenance).
I could scream. ARGGGGGG!!!!!

Thanks for the heads-up though!
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

A nice bookend with L2 notes on an internal review this week:

Here's hoping they get continued funding and further progress.  Great article, thanks for the write up Chris.

Goodbye Morpheus it has been fun watching you.

On a $14 million project they saved $50 million on parts by a “Beg and Borrow” strategy, in particular buying parts from a local hardware store.

Fun read Chris! :) It was like watching a child grow up through all the bumps and bruises to finally mature to freedom.
