    Heck no, the more the merrier! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh and another update. China has made history by putting the first lander and rover on the far side of the moon.

    Chang'e-4 Lands on the Far Side of the Moon

    So we'll finally get some high-res photos of the Ark, and hidden Decepticon forces

    Would be cool if there was a live stream from the rover's camera.

    Wouldn’t you you need a connection fastr than the speed of light to do that, you can literally say it woul be light years ahead of internet speeds here and would not work here if it did.

    Footage from the Apollo missions to the moon were transmitted live (delayed by a few seconds) on television back in the 1960s. Would it not be possible to do the same in the present day?

    What's needed is a Space Bridge.

    Or a wormhole for those with less imagination.

    Love how there's so much media coverage for this historic event

    The moon is only light-seconds away from Earth. Enough of a delay you’d notice during a video call but not enough to get in the way or a live feed or convo.


    Looking For:

    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)

    Things have been a bit quiet to start the year plus I've been getting back into the swing of things with my work schedule.

    China have released some images from its lunar lander and rover from the far side of the moon

    SpaceX began its 2019 launch campaign the first of 18 launches planned with its final Iridium-NEXT satellite constellation payload completing their upgraded network. Hopefully we'll see at least another Falcon Heavy launch this year as well as the Dragon 2 tests for the Commercial Crew program. There will also be a Launch Abort test for Dragon 2 at some stage to test their SuperDraco thrusters can safely pull a capsule and its passengers to safety in case of a mid-launch emergency.

    And continuing SpaceX news, The latest Dragon Capsule returned to Earth and The Starship Test Article is getting ready to fly.

    The Starship is a testbed for the next generation of SpaceX rockets and hardware so this is an exciting new step. Plus it looks like a siny 60's style old-school moon rocket
