  • That was pretty cool. I like how it had the little factoids along the journey.

    I would be interested in them creating the same type of thing for other outer space locations, such as where the Voyager spacecraft are currently located.

  • I just saw a tweet today that said something about how at UW they're working on a nuclear fission rocket that could put the travel time to mars at around 30-90 days, vs. the 9 months or year or whatever it is. They're supposed to start testing it possibly this summer.
