SpaceX has posted to twitter that it is going to try to launch people to the Space Station this coming Saturday, November 14th.

Spaceship! It’s cool, yo | “KSC-20180726-PH_SPX01_0001” by NASAKennedy is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0

The crew for this mission has arrived in Florida and includes 4 people where the last one had only 2.

The pilot, Victor Glover, completed his astronaut training in 2015.

This mission used to be scheduled for October. It’s not uncommon for rocket launches to be postponed due to weather.

A couple days after Crew Dragon is scheduled to arrive, the ISS plans a sapacewalk.

This launch is meant to be at pad 39A.

More Space-Internet from Starlink

This is just one more step closer to catgirl-transhumanism.

Musk has announced that many more people will be allowed to purchase the 50 to 150 meg service from his company as they roll out wider coverage.

In a brief message, he calls this “beta participation”, which, true to form, has a certain kind of humor to it.

Starlink aims to provide high speed internet to the entire globe.

Astronomers are a bit miffed by the project. This is because it causes significant optical interference for earth based space observations.

The next launch of more Starlink satellites was meant to be back on October 9th, but has been delayed to a yet to be determined future date.

Currently, there are about 900 of these little guys in orbit.
