That's good news.  One more step complete.
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

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.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Astra determines it was a propellant leak which caused an engine failure at liftoff.

A United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket will launch NASA’s Lucy spacecraft. Built by Lockheed Martin and led by the Southwest Research Institute, Lucy will fly by seven Trojan asteroids, a unique family of asteroids that orbit the sun in front of and behind Jupiter. The rocket will fly in the 401 vehicle configuration with a four-meter fairing, no solid rocket boosters, and a single-engine Centaur upper stage.

I have received an ‘Alert’ notice for possible S20 static fire attempt today (10-18). There is a road and beach closure scheduled. The ‘Alert’ notice states Space Test Activities from 4:00 pm - 1:00 am. The county website states closure from 5 pm - midnight. 🤷‍♀️

Every time I see someone talking about Astra, I confuse it with ARCA, and I think the silly asses had finally actually tried to launch their steam rocket.

Two static fires last night including the first static fire of an installed Vacuum Raptor.

Meanwhile more Starliner delays, maybe another years worth
