    Remarkable footage of SLS launch from Everyday Astronaut. Been following these guys, they livestream a lot of the launches in the US. Just a bunch of guys, started out really small, but recently bought a retired NBC field reporting van to travel the country. Some of the high resolution footage is incredible.

    Watched the livestream. I would happily volunteer to be on the next trip. But that's just me.

    I did too! Late night for sure, but just had to watch it live. History in the making!

    One of those angles revealed what would happen very quickly if they have a slow gantry retract... not sure I would like to find out what happens if it hits the vehicle.

    Discovery has a great special on the Artemis which goes back over a decade as this project isn't new by any means

    It was 17 years from concept to first flight for the space shuttle, and that was just to test the orbiter on the back of a 747... It took another 5 to get it vertical for a launch.

    The little company that I've been working for this year has been involved with the Artemis project from the beginning. It's kind of neat to know some of their products are on the way to the moon

    FYI for a great shower
    Dec. 13-14: The annual Geminid meteor shower, one of the best meteor showers of the year, peaks overnight. Find a nice dark place and enjoy the show

    Its almost comet time

    At the start of 2023 Earth will be visited by a newly discovered comet that may just be bright enough to be spotted with the naked eye.

    The comet, named C/2022 E3 (ZTF), is currently passing through the inner solar system. It will make its closest approach to the sun, or perihelion, on Jan. 12, and will then whip past Earth making its closest passage of our planet, its perigee, between Feb. 1 and Feb. 2.

    If the comet continues to brighten as it currently is, it could be visible in dark skies with the naked eye. This is difficult to predict for comets, but even if C/2022 E3 (ZTF) does fade it should still be visible with binoculars or a telescope for a number of days around its close approach.

    I found this quite amazing. https://space.com/dark-energy-camera-milky-way-survey

    Think of it as a portrait of the Milky Way where over 3 BILLION objects are individually recognizable. Think about that. One galaxy. Sure, we're alone out here.
