This morning the Parker Solar Probe was launched to the Sun to research the Sun’s atmosphere. Earlier this year people were given the opportunity to register their name to be sent on the spacecraft. Guess who registered?
Last week I mentioned starting with hyper scheduling. I must say, the first day was a great success. I really could mark a number of tasks as complete at the end of the day, and it felt good! The day after I was not that successful however. My scheduling efforts went totally down the drain. The rest of the week was kind of a mix between good days and bad days (although the bad days were successful in other ways, just not in the scheduling sense).
I’m convinced hyper scheduling does work, it will however work better on certain days than on others. I need to learn to discern what the signs are before taking the effort to make a schedule as to not waste the time (although the time invested can be somewhat deducted the next day).
This is awesome! On February 6, 2018, SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy for the first time. Elon Musk stated it was a 50-50 chance things would go right (or wrong, whatever you prefer). But it went great (almost)!
The video below starts with the landing of the two outer cores, but the whole video is worth looking at:
Too bad the center core was not able to land intact on the drone ship, but I’m sure they’ll figure out what went wrong and fix it.
