surely it could be a rotating mass with something that orbits regularly blocking it - even a completely unrelated object some distance away

I still haven't played Colonial Marines, even after all these years of it being sat in the bargain bin. The pain of the negative reviews still haunts my dreams :(

In other news, did anyone else see the footage of the surface of the Sun?

The scale is just mind-boggling - each little block is the size of Texas :shock:

Elon Musk is a banana split, but I'm a sucker for space rockets.

:toot: This is so strawberry floating cool :wub:

I love how it looks almost try hard futuristic, but the aesthetic of space equipment we're used to is based on stuff that's 40 years old.

Amazing how stripped out the capsule is, it's all tablets and empty space. Amazing how miniaturization can make this possible.

Rockets :wub:

I'll post some of my space centre photos next time I go on my pc.

It boggles my mind sometimes, to think about what another human being is doing right at the very same moment that I am thinking about them. What is Brad Pitt doing right now? He exists, he's a real conscious person and right now he is quantifiably doing something. While I'm staring off into nothing, is he experiencing the most stressful day of his life? The happiest? Is it pretty mundane? In any case, I find it amazing to consider that there's a full and complete consciousness, like my own, experiencing whatever it is he's experiencing right now.

Anyway, my point is that it's strawberry floating mental that there are two members of our species hurtling through space at 2000mph right now.

It's supposed to be visible in the south western sky roughly between 10.10 and 10.20pm.

As always though, i shall look out the window and see precisely nothing (as i did when looking for the comet a week or so ago).

It's going to be very low in the sky so I think you're only going to se it if you're out in a big field. 10 mins before is an ISS pass which you should see no problem, just look above stool bloke's gnome.

We saw the ISS the other night, followed swiftly by another satellite that could only have been an alien spacecraft.

Yeah, if I saw the cast of a sci-fi wearing that get up I would roll my eyes at how unrealistic it looked but I suppose we have this vision of astronauts kind of trapped in amber from days before I was even born.

Went out to have a look but all I could catch was a very clear view of the ISS.

I went out and saw the same. Sadly I was confused about the timings and told my 6 year old it was the Dragon. I now either tell him the truth and destroy his best memory to date, or I have to lie to him for the rest of his life.

Captain Picard never had to deal with this gooseberry fool!

Just correct him next time he brings it up as the dragon and pretend you told him it was the ISS all along
