    What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Ok, I see a grating where the wind comes in, but how does the wind get out? of the room, that is... Also, what’s the plaque on the exhaust assembly say?

    Tho it certainly speaks to the strengths of his ideas and passion that he’s able to garner support (and lots of funding), and not just for SpaceX, despite sounding like a nervous 8th grader giving his first class presentation. Sometime in the future...

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Speaking of such, how about a fix so Comic Sans doesn’t show up as, like, cursive on iOS devices?

    You're trading fuel for consumables (water, O2, food, etc), also they mentioned "skimming the moon then going way far away (above both moon and earth)," some free returns do just this, one of the mission plans for Orion, IIRC. Like Musk said, the mission plan isn't even close to being finalized at this point, so that's all subject to change.

    Apollo 8 reached peri-Mün 69 hours into the mission, including time in a parking orbit, sounds about right.

    So this dude’s a billionaire, right? I wonder if they’re announcing some big financial thing, too, like he’ll fun (a big part of) the whole thing if he gets the first ride, or something like that.
