    Might be a good time for everyone working on the rocket to use this as leverage for unionising...

    Setup the telescope outside to observe the moon and some stars. Rather surprised the moon didn't move more across the field of view while being observed. Dad asked about a particular star he saw. After fumbling with Stellarium's web app (and failing), I downloaded the free app for my tablet and concluded he was looking at Arcturus.

    He said he's never heard of it. wat.jpg

    Will try to find the Pleiades some other night.

    Follow the arc to Arcturus.

    Find the big dipper, extend the curve from the dippers handle to Arcturus. (if you continue the curve, you'll get to Spica in Virgo)

    Holy shit, they might not be re-used but they can be recycled if you don't mind killing random citizens by dropping them free boosters.

    I really wouldnt be surprised if the turbo pump assembly and other really technical bits are shielded for that exact purpose

    Hypergolic fuel is such a bad idea for first stages. That's what you get when you repurpose ICBM tech I guess.

    Scientists watch a black hole swallow a neutron star

    Astronomers witnessed the last 500 orbits before the neutron stars were swallowed, a process that took far less than a minute and briefly generated as much energy as all the visible light in the observable universe.
    Jesus fuck

    Epic space things!

    Question: Isn't a black hole the highest-density object and not a neutron star? Or is a black hole not classified as an "object"?

    Problems with Black Hole density come from mass supposedly all being concentrated into central singularity. So infinite density...

    For a stellar mass Black Hole I think the Schwatrzshield radius should be less than neutron star of same size so more dense even looking at "larger" volume. But some supermassive black holes may have such large event horizon radius that overall density would be that of air.

    I think a black hole is considered a 'region of space time' rather than an object since we've never been able to directly observe them or something.

    IIRC (extremely vaguely) neutron stars limits are very tight, and shrink down then maybe turn into black holes?
    Black hole start off super-small and expand
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.
