    While we wait for Artemis to get off the ground, here are NASA's latest Moon to Mars objectives.

    I'm an engineer- english is not my specialty.

    Still a great time to be an astronomer. And an astrophysicist.

    The data that JWST takes with each image is enough to fill probably hundreds of PhD thesis. Just use all of the data (which is always being taken) to look at something obscure in the image.

    None the less, that's berkleing cool. Oh, this isn't that forum- that's ****ing cool.

    Data, pull up the weather on Risa.

    Saturday around 2pm is the next attempt. They think the temperature sensor may be giving incorrect readings.
