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.

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.
