    Watch, Watched, Watching: Getting Sneaky

    Watched The Last Unicorn with a bunch of friends feeling nostaglic for 80's fantasy movies. The moment Amalthea early on says "Say my name! Say my name!" I shouted at the screen "Heisenberg!!"

    SpaceX's Big Falcon Topic 2

    Was another launch scrub -- upgrades to software needed. Next launch opportunity next week. Meanwhile, NASA is handing out money for concepts and prototypes for landers on the Moon. Severanl companies share $45.5 million. SpaceX will use it to study a lander concept launched with Falcon Heavy. Most relevant statement as to why this is coming now:

    SpaceX's Big Falcon Topic 2

    Weather is 80% go for Starlink launch on the F9 from KSC tonight - May 15th 22:30 EDT. Sounds like SpaceX needs 7 launches to have the basic constellation up to be able to offer internet services. I'd expect that to be mainly high-traffic internet backbone rental to other ISPs for now. 7x60 = 420 satellites, about 10% of the 1st initial config of 4500 sats before they expand up to 12,000.

    First 60 sats for Starlink broadband internet constellation (~4500 sats) possibly going up this Wednesday This could eventually bring in $10 billion a year for just a small percent of the global broadband market, enough to fund Musk's Mars plans indefinitely. I did not realize they'd be so big (check the Tesla Roadster for comparison in the 2nd pic) ... and so flat (If I'm looking at it correctly). Looks like the dispenser is going to flick them out like playing cards. This is an interesting bet I wish I could money on. Who is ready to dump their ISP for Starlink asap?
