    Its not a bad sign. They literally only have one cryo/ pressurisation rig so needed to get these initial results reviewed and published before they can repeat the experiment because to do so they have to release the pressure/cryo conditions which could destroy the material and prevent said review.

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Given racisms prevalence, i'm no longer sure diversifying humanity would lead to much else beyond than perpetual megadeaths and genocide. Still though, framing it in the kardashev scale was neat.

    The Calabash Nebula, pictured here — which has the technical name OH 231.8+04.2 — is a spectacular example of the death of a low-mass star like the Sun. This image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the star going through a rapid transformation from a red giant to a planetary nebula, during which it blows its outer layers of gas and dust out into the surrounding space. The recently ejected material is spat out in opposite directions with immense speed — the gas shown in yellow is moving close to a million kilometres an hour.

    Astronomers rarely capture a star in this phase of its evolution because it occurs within the blink of an eye — in astronomical terms. Over the next thousand years the nebula is expected to evolve into a fully fledged planetary nebula.

    The nebula is also known as the Rotten Egg Nebula because it contains a lot of sulphur, an element that, when combined with other elements, smells like a rotten egg — but luckily, it resides over 5000 light-years away in the constellation of Puppis (The Poop deck).

    Looks like SpaceX is preparing for another test of their demonstrator tank for the Interplanetary Transport System.

    So much vapor looked like it would be a cool launch, then aborted at T-13 seconds.

    Looks like SpaceX has managed to make rocket landings boring.

    If they had a decent PR team they know to make every 3rd booster explode to keep people interested in watching
