Space Exploration megathread

Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

Interesting a Navy Seal astronaut that looks like a Trident on the left shoulder of his light blue jumpsuit. He is probably there to keep an eye on the Ruskies. Can't have them poking holes in the ISS or sabotaging the Dragon.

Just wait until you see the Blue Origin lander cockpit. Zero controls at all. Just a microphone.

The humans at the base of it add a scale that I sometimes forget when watching these things gently set down. They just don't appear that big.

Unlurking mentioned it, but there's a Starlink launch tonight at 9:25pm EST if anyone's interested. Not quite as exciting as manned launches, but rockets are always fun.

Very Cloudy with 40% rain. Hope it clears up. Night launches are always worth watching. If you have good eyesight you can actually see the moment it reaches space.
