    Did they mention charging the battery? They're still not up.

    (I have this cartoon running in my head that looks like this: MrD and MrM and a few other Smiling Faces are frantically trying to get Crystal to run a 100 watt light bulb for the demonstration. But she keeps stalling out or the Z-drive keeps slipping. They lubricate, install a fresh BYB, change bearings, adjust the Zee-Drive but it _still_ won't power a load for more than a few seconds. The rest of the mob are looking more and more askance at MrD, while he scrambles units of power and energy and misplaces decimal points and waves papers full of equations around shouting "I am Engineer! Here is the proof it works! Give me more WD-40!")


    2250 and still not up.

    Looks like it's gonna be a long night at IEC.

    I declare today to be Ill-Fitting Shirt Day?

    I’m not sure which one of the three of them is the worst ...

    For the rest of us, the moon will always be a flat, two-dimensional coin of light in the darkness. Collins and the other Apollo astronauts experienced it as it truly is, a ball suspended in nothingness, curved by light and shadow. And then there’s the far side, eternally hidden from view. In his book, Collins’s description of the other side of the moon, shrouded in darkness, is lovely and infuriating at the same time because, hard as we try, we can’t fathom the view: “Outside my window I can see stars—and that is all. Where I know the moon to be, there is simply a black void; the moon’s presence is defined solely by the absence of stars.”

    Hmmm.... of course the Apollo missions were at Luna during the Earth-facing side's morning, just after sunrise in fact. So the far side would of course be experiencing darkness... but it won't last.
