    Happy to be a feminist SJ(K)W snowflake in a godless universe, no matter what some experts think. And Braun was a twat who's not missed. At all.

    Yup,
    Scary to know that with 11 minutes speed of light lag it was already down, for good or for bad, before the telemetry said it had even reached the outer atmosphere.

    What an achievement! We were ridiculously excited watching it live on NASA TV. Can't wait for the helicopter trials now.

    If we are both on the same side how can signal have taken 11 min with speed of light lag?
