    • It will never launch sorry to burst your bubble here it isn't going to happen because Elon Musk has gone bust. Meaning Space X is an X company it' no longer exists. And you know what I'm glad.

  • INPORTENT NOTICE [THEY USE ULTRASONIC WELDIG it dose not create heat and makes the weld stronger because of no weakening to the surrounding metal. PLEASE ask are they already using this method????

  • I like the way you hoodie looks but I am hesitant to buy wearable Merch online. I previously got a graphic tee (not from you) and I loved the graphic but the cotton is so thin that I you can see through it. I am a professional and if I get something to wear, it has to be a level of quality where I can wear it amongst my co-workers - if I can't then no one will ever see it.

  • A note for post: The percussion in the music bed is WAY too noticeable, and - at least for people with decent audio systems - makes this almost unwatchable. Think "someone constantly pounding a bass drum in the background". You don't notice this because you are very used to it (it's "normal"). For the rest of us - not so much. Just sayin'.

  • Great report! Keep ‘em coming Felix! Not sure why some are confused about the title. Has it been changed since some said it was click baity? Surely it just represents, in sequence, the 3 separate topics covered. The title in no way links any of the 3 elements, especially not the heat shield trouble to the Perseverance lander.

  • Thank you very much, Felix, for all those excellent professionally done updates on space exploration technology development. I am eagerly looking forward to Perseverance's Mars landing, particularly to being able to see video and hear audio of 7 minutes of hell as Curiosity's landing approach was called. In all truth, you are the one who really rocks.
