I like the Boeing spacesuit much better than the SpaceX one.

Blue is a pretty poor color choice if there is an ascent or entry emergency and the astronauts end up in the water. White is better, but nothing beats International Orange.

(The 50-mile mark isn't universally accepted, however. For example, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, the ruling body on world air sports, puts the boundary at an altitude of 62 miles, or 100 km.)

But VSS Unity is a suborbital vehicle, so it did not circle our planet. No person has launched to Earth orbit from the United States since July 8, 2011, when the space shuttle Atlantis lifted off on the final mission of NASA's venerable shuttle program. Since then, American astronauts have relied completely on Russian Soyuz rockets and spacecraft, which launch from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, to get to and from the International Space Station (ISS).

True about the FAI, but Unity did launch in the USA

And I'm all familiar with the last Shuttle launch, since I was at my station in the LCC (Launch Control Center) at Pad 39 for that launch, as I was for all of them going back to STS-1

"If it does go off, it will be the first launch of astronauts from American soil in almost a decade, and the first time in history that a private company will put astronauts into space."

Excepting of course the five astronauts who have flown in the past couple of years for Virgin Galactic. Since in their two flights they exceeded 50 miles in altitude, the FAA considers it a flight to space and therefore all participants earned their astronaut wings

The story on the WWE getting the green light to start production again failed to mention one important fact, that the day after getting the go-ahead from a Republican governor, Linda McMahon (whose husband heads WWE) made an $18.5 million dollar donation to the Trump campaign.

Cruise Ship Passing Through Corinth Canal.

My father was a Panama Canal pilot just after WW2. One time he brought an Iowa class battleship through the canal, in the locks the ship had a couple of feet to spare on each side

I seem to be getting the warning from the image embedded in the story "Borderlands 3 Save Game Issue Hotfix". The image doesn't load and when I try to manually load it, Malwarebytes gives me a pop up saying that it is a Trojan.

Paid for SVP4 and I can't stand to watch anything with it not enabled anymore. It's a stutter fest. It's like trying to play a first person shooter at 24 fps when you're used to 60+.

The movie industry, instead of whining like crybabies about something devised as a workaround in the 20th century to alleviate technical problems arising from high framerate shooting like bandwidth issues and others, they could just adapt and catch up with the rest of us in the 21th century.

Movies shot at 60hz or even 120hz, how about it? I'm down with it! Bring it on! Down with the blurry stuttery mess, say no to antiquated 24/30hz ( unless you're going for that vintage artistic look ).

But either way, we should send astronauts back there and beyond. Hopefully this will happen sooner rather than later.

I don't know, I'd really like to spend those billions on things like climate change, health care, education, etc. But then only my wife listens to me, and even then not always.

Here in Florida those Enhanced licenses have been in effect for at least about eight years, because back in 2011 when I had to renew my license I had to bring several documents to the DMV and get my Enhanced license. With the usual eight year expiration period that should mean that pretty much everyone should have one now, as I don't believe there are allowed exceptions, although I could be wrong. It's not a big deal, or wasn't for us, our local DMV is set up pretty well and except for the occasional grumpy clerk it functions pretty well.

I'd almost feel bad about mentioning it, but since the Internet loves to hate on Florida, I'll just note that due to the almost continuous above average temps we've been having, I've been in my pool for the past couple of weeks. Not continuously of course.

Ah, global warming. I can swim in my pool a lot sooner in the season than before, and in a couple of decades I'll have oceanfront property. At least for a few years, till my house goes under too.

My wife has had three total knee replacement surgeries (one didn't take). Each time the surgeon marked the knee with indelible marker and this marking was also verbally verified by the surgical nurse and the anesthesiologist. Each one also asked about any allergies, even though the info was on the chart. I guess it really does matter where you have the surgery and who does it. We've been going to the same orthopedic clinic for over twenty years and will never go elsewhere.

Couple of things...

First of all, regarding a Wankel as a epic fuel hog is pushing it a bit. I had a 1979 RX-7 with the rotary engine and while the fuel economy wasn't spectacular, it wasn't bad, especially compared with the contemporary V-8s. And it really did accelerate like a bat out of hell and had oodles of torque. One time I lost third+fourth gears (dropped transmission linkage fork) and drove for a couple of weeks with only first, second and fifth. Oddly, I never had an issue with the engine, but the body construction was crappy.

And 14 bookshelves? Rookie . I've got 25 spread between two rooms. But then we're never planning to move

The job comes with a six figure salary—$124,406 to $187,000 per year

And some people wonder why so many get pissed off with government waste on things like NASA.

That's not an unreasonable salary considering the prerequisites and requirements of the job.
