Reusable

If every time I drove my car it was spent and I had to use a new one every day it would get pretty damn expensive. If ever time I used my computer and it was spent and I had to get a new one it would get pretty damn expensive. If every time a trucker hauled a load and then needed a new truck for the next load it would get expensive. If every time a ship made a transatlantic or transpacific trip and then needed to be replaced it would get pretty damn expensive. Well, the space industry on this planet has been doing just that for the past half century.

Until yesterday.

Space X just moved us closer to expanding the human race into space by launching a rocket into orbit and landing it for the second time.

 

Being able to reuse a rocket multiple times will reduce costs and make space industry a viable pursuit.

Guess Who’s Home

After a very scary Sunday, when he was hours from death, Kang is now home. He is happy, sedate, and content. He’s out of the woods, able to easily empty his bladder. We need to feed him prescription food for urinary tract health. So far he’s snubbed his nose at it. He’ll get hungry and eat eventually. Or he’ll lose weight, which won’t hurt either.

Sound and Fury?

Was Sessions a part of the Trump campaign at the time he spoke with the Russian ambassador? If not, than I am at a loss as to what the big deal is? If he talked to the ambassador as a part of his senatorial duties, the misspeak is just that, and not an out and out lie.

(CNN) Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice last year with the top Russian diplomat in Washington whose interactions with President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Mike Flynn led to Flynn’s firing, according to the Justice Department.

Sessions did not mention either meeting during his confirmation hearings when he said he knew of no contacts between Trump surrogates and Russians. A Justice official said Sessions didn’t mislead senators during his confirmation.

I’m not interested in pearl clutching and hysterics at this time. I’d much prefer to wait until the FBI does its report.

Update: Well, it appears he was attached to the Trump campaign at the time.

(Business Insider) The advisory team, headed by US Senator Jeff Sessions, includes terrorism expert Walid Phares, energy industry executive Carter Page, international energy lawyer George Papadopoulos, former government inspector general Joe Schmitz, and former Army Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg, he told the Post in an on-the-record editorial board meeting, according to the media company.
