It’s tough in space. They are scheduled to return today. Another crew to launch Wednesday although that has been delayed several times now.

We saw the capsule enter the atmosphere the other night before it splashed down off of Pensacola's coast, was really cool.

So Elon Musk gave Ukraine access to Starlink. Great!  A terminal for access costs only $500 and the service is a mere $99 per month.

Probably a safe assumption that he isn’t charging them.

I guess he will have to ship the terminals?

The Russians are going to love those.

It’s interesting that while many things have been shut down, much of the communication has not been jammed, blocked, or destroyed.

It is surprising. I’m sure they’ve been trying.

Was watching the space launch countdown on the Roku streaming. Went to look out the window to see it live and the realized that the streaming was at least a minute behind reality.
