by John Galt February 17, 2018 22:30 ET I just decided to crank up some great tunes and this picture came up from Tesla’s Starman cam: Keep in mind the elongated angle of approach and the fact that the car is hauling you know what away from Earth, and that is awesome. The red circle is what I estimate to be Cyclone Gita over the South Pacific between Vanuatu and New Caledonia heading south towards New Zealand. Just an awesome pic.

We had finally through many trials reached our destination that very warm February night at 0230 local.

If you Don’t Think This is Cool to Watch, You’re a Dick (Video)

by John Galt February 7, 2018, 20:45 ET I’ve decided to use an ELO stream from YouTube in another window to listen to while watching Starman float off to Mars.

Thank you for letting an old guy vent.
