Beautiful image that captures the emotion of two astronauts arriving at Opportunity Station. It captures the emotions I and others that operated Oppy are feeling right now. Note not my art. All credit to the artist, Rostislav Shekhovtsov:

Here's the "PROCUREMENT OF CREW TRANSPORTATION AND RESCUE SERVICES FROM ROSCOSMOS" page, published this week (great spot by our folk). This still makes me chuckle. The Chinese won't be e-mailing the US government. Virgin or Blue with "moar boosters?" 😉

Heh, I've been stung by "it's about to land" info before. They tend to be pretty fast in confirming a landing, so probably not. That link URL "Top War" looks a bit dodgy too. 😄

I'm always polluting the timeline. That's how we got Fraiser as a Starfleet captain. 😄

Also good to see harpoons being used in a space reference in a positive light.

What a rocket, but way too many engines. At least no one's going down that route again......oh! 😉

Nice picture of a Soviet era N1 launcher, I took this picture inside the MIK-112 at Baikonur, so it's a picture of an N1 inside MIK-112, inside MIK-112 :)

Nods. As you suggest, it's Shuttle porn and that launch sequence (if out of order) is so well done even by today's standards. PS I know a Shuttle engineer who nearly punched Bruce Willis for getting too touchy with a real orbiter in an OPF during filming. 😂

Still awesome. Just a shame Bay had them still firing their engines after ET sep. The whole "spin up the station BEFORE docking" and slingshot around the Moon was fine, but where were they getting propellent from!! 🤣
