Yep, have fun with that one.  :rofl:

Doing some planned course corrections now.

Already 40k miles from the earth.

I stayed up last night to watch the launch.  I have to admit it was more out of morbid curiosity than excitement, given all the troubles Artemis 1 had up to this point.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Every problem they were having last night was not on the rocket itself, the leak was on in the launch platform and the radar was a range issue.
SLS preformed beautifully, don't think you could have asked for better out of the rocket from everything I've seen.

The US Space Force confirmed on Saturday that a Chinese rocket stage broke up at least 500 kilometers over our heads on Nov. 12, creating some 50 new pieces of space junk around the same altitude as a number of SpaceX Starlink satellites and above where the International Space Station orbits.
Quote
The pieces of the Long March 6A could eventually get pulled back down to Earthís atmosphere, where they would likely burn up completely. But Bassa says that could take a few years. Along the way the debris would pass through the same orbital altitude as the International Space Station.

Yay, more junk to dodge.

Another SX launch up for tonight.
Weather is a factor at the cape since SX had a weather scrub at the cape for CRS-26 earlier.

SpaceX is launching a Falcon 9 carrying the Eutelsat-10B satellite. The launch will occur from CCSFS SLC-40 headed to a geostationary transfer orbit. The first stage is B1049-11, which will not attempt a landing and be expended.

That launch made it through the weather. No landing since the booster was expended to maximize burn time.

The earlier one that had a weather scrub is going for it again Tues

SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, November 22 for Falcon 9ís launch of Dragonís 26th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-26) mission to the International Space Station from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASAís Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is at 3:54 p.m. ET (20:54 UTC), and a backup launch opportunity is available on Saturday, November 26 at 2:20 p.m. ET (19:20 UTC), pending range approval.

B7 pretty much destroyed the concrete under the OLM during the 14 engine static fire and they're having to replace the concrete with a another type.
Weld issues and work on S24
SX work at the cape.
More SLS pad damage info.
And some amazing SLS/Artemis views
