This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins.

This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

  • Endeavor is returning to Earth

    They're departing! Fingers crossed on their re-entry.

    Reentry is in a few hours.

      Splashdown in 1 hour and 57 minutes.

      Reentry burn in 1 hour to claw separation between the Dragon capsule and the trunk.

        Actually I got the time wrong. This is their last orbit. Reentry burn in a few minutes.

            Ah that took me back to my childhood.

            They are currently working on the hatch...some difficulty apparently.

                  They should have been prevented from returning due to coronavirus concerns.

                      It's more of a surprise that they'd want to return.

                      I'm always still in trouble again

                          I admit to having a somewhat jaded response to all this. What purpose has it served? Why this fixation on going to Mars? We have trashed one planet in this solar system already - do we want to trash another?

                          Who exactly will be sent on these proposed "colonising" enterprises and why? Who would really want to live on such a planet? What is there on Mars for a future human society?

                          Why does Musk want to make space travel available to everyone?

                          Furthermore, given the problems on this planet - our only home at present - it seems Mr Musk would have been better employed spending his money to alleviate existing problems here.

                          I find this whole exercise remarkably pointless.

                            It's kinda like "why climb that mountain".
