My plans for world domination foundered because the team floundered around trying to decide if the orbiting mind control lasers should be red, green, or blue, and that caused so much lack of progress, and bitter arguing, that all the backers withdrew their funds.

That wouldn't be the first project to wallow over bikeshedding ;) I assume you have a plan B ?

Don't underestimate the importance of looking out a window.

I'm done with this. https://twitter.com/Foone/status/1014267515696922624
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.

Ummm... thought I'd best reply here, as I don't quite understand what I'm looking at in that pic.
Does the mini-sub have a cloaking device?

Looks a heck of a lot like our friend from the first Jurassic Park movie...

Looks like a humpback whale going in for a snack.

Doubtful that BFR will ever be volume limited.
SpaceX, just a few things planned for 2018: FH, Starlink Prototypes, Block 5, Dragon 2, Increased launch rate.

Here is a silly homage to our awesome John Insprucker.  I hope the coolest cat this side of the galaxy doesn't mind a little ribbing.  In good fun. Just for levity. I blame CraigLieb.
