    Any thoughts on Trump's Artemis program to build the Lunar Gateway space station and return astronauts to the Lunar surface by 2024? (I mean, aside from no fucking way is it ever going to happen...). For me, I'd like to see a Lunar orbital station and a surface base, but I have almost zero confidence Artemis is getting done. Probably the next boot on the Moon will be Chinese, or a private company.

    How about Artemis, the follow-up book by Andy Weir, author of The Martian? I've never read The Martian, but I thought Artemis was meh, at best. Yes, he's good with sticking to realism, but that's about it. Characters are uninteresting and the story not very.

    Today I learned that a guy in my neighborhood I've known for a good 7 years or so was part of the team that was working on guidance & navigation for the Apollo program - he worked on gyroscope based guidance systems for the spacecraft. That was pretty awesome, and my daughter was super impressed.
