Jaycee Caramsalidis : Falcon Heavy: Uncertain Case for Lunar Exploration Interesting article. The FH is not the end all of SpaceX development as other launchers are on the drawing board. The Falcon X and XX launchers are extremely BEO capable. Okay, thety may not be ready yet but there is no money right now for a BEO (Moon, Mars, etc) mission anyway. Those launchers will be ready when the funding and infrastructure exists, I suspect, at a fraction of the cost of SLS. FH is closer to reality - last I heard - than SLS and SpaceX does have the track record of getting things done. When was the last time that US Government developed an effective manned launcher, with all American technology and affordable. been a while, hasn't it? Cancelling SLS may not be a good idea at this juncture - I would need to dig deeper - but I would not dismiss SpaceX solely on the limitations of the FH. 8 hours ago - View -
CChaos CChaos : ‘Loser’ No More: Tesla Repays $465 Million U.S. Loan | TIME.com yes, CEO Tony Stark, you make me damn proud! and Mittens was the "loser"! lolz.
"The loan repayment is a major victory for Tesla, which was branded as a “loser” company by Mitt Romney during his unsuccessful 2012 Republican presidential campaign. “I would like to thank the Department of Energy and the members of Congress and their staffs that worked hard to create the ATVM program, and particularly the American taxpayer from whom these funds originate,” Musk said in a statement. “I hope we did you proud.”"

TEA Party in Space : Gary Anderson's Photos This is an effort to petition the government to establish a lunar COTS program. It is a public private partnership. It would follow the successful COTS program establishing the SpaceX and Orbital "FEDEX/UPS" transportation system to the space station and the current commercial crew space act agreement to taxi astronauts. This is the next step. To develop a transportation system to and from the Moon. TEA Party in Space supports this effort. Please click the link and sign their petition.

Richard Gaskin : Adventurer known as 'Real-life Indiana Jones' dies 88 Sadly, John Goddard has departed on The Great Adventure.
I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to see him in person at the Los Angeles Adventurers' Club last month. He was a rare breed, the likes of which we see only once in several generations.
Goddard's famous list of 127 goals he wanted to accomplish during his life is an inspiration to all, inviting each of us to make our own list, take the time to prepare ourselves for them, and jump in and do 'em.
What's on your list?
Here are a few of mine:
1. Ride an elephant (checked that off the list when I was 4 - thanks Nosey)
3. Take a wilderness survival class (I've taken five now, with plans for more)
4. Get certified in wilderness first aid (still to do)
5. Learn to cook really well (ongoing, but at least I make a decent creme brulee)
6. Learn to cook really well in the middle of nowhere on a 3oz single-burner camp stove (harder, but if you can pull that off you'll get invited on every backpacking trip )
7. Learn French well enough to read Voltaire in his native tongue (not even close right now)
...and many more...

Moses N. Njenga : Tesla Repays Department of Energy Loan Nine Years Early | Press Releases | Tesla Motors Elon Musk is my current inspiration. He is Co-Founder, Paypal, Founder- Tesla Motors, and Co-Founder - SpaceX. All out of the Box Innovations. His latest car, Tesla Model S got 99 out of 100 points from the most prestigious Car reviewer. Model S has driving range of between 208 and 265 miles from a single charge. A full charge takes about six hours from an ordinary 240 volt outlet. Another of his feats is his venture in space tourism, providing Virgin Galactic with the reusable space Vehicle that was successfully tested a few weeks ago. Elon Musk is only 41 years old. http://money.cnn.com/2013/05/09/autos/tesla-model-s-consumer-reports/index.html 1 day ago - View -
