~ Elon's Dogehouse - Starship SN10 sticks the landing! Stands unscratched! (then gently blows to smithereens) ~

Touchdown confirmed! Well done!
Watched it in VR in Bigscreen, this is becoming my go-to now. I was switching between a room showing Tims stream on a huge TV, a space cinema showing Nasa Spaceflights stream and the official Nasa stream in a cinema.

It was crazy thinking "this thing has either crashed and burned or is snapping shots of the environment right now" when in our timeline we could only see entering the atmosphere of Mars.

Perseverance had a far better time than residents in Texas, humans or otherwise. That Mid-US winter storm is holding out strong and hundreds of thousands of households are still without power in freezing cold. Not just humans affected: cold stunned sea turtles needed serious rescue as well as one turtle clinic that lost power, SpaceX hooked'em up with some generators.




While its true that many wind turbines froze in but also coal and gas plants so it's not like you can burn coal freely and get electricity. Decentralized energy generation and local storage can't come soon enough: whoever got a Powerwall a too kept their lights on and with the some out periodically, a little recharge.



All LabPadre streams are down and no significant operations in Boca Chica this week obviously, SF will commence next no TFRs for SN10 flight. No work on Giga Texas either: it's frozen, snowed in and soon gonna be a mud field. Some do find the fun in the rare TX snow: snowboarding at Giga Texas?





Giga Berlin snowed in also

Whoa look at the Perseverance rover from a camera above just before landing!




Also what is currently sees in HQ




And check out the holey rocks right next to the rover - probably just Mars ants diggin or tiny green aliens, no biggie

Already we can see that some of the shots that Perseverance will send back will be amazing in their clarity.

Porous rock = volcanic rock?

Or not necessarily?

Just watched this on their Twitter feed, the second I saw the framerate of that parachute opening I was shocked. We're so used to seeing juddery, slideshow-esque footage from paces like Mars that to actually see flowing full colour video like it was filmed on earth is pretty shocking.

I can't wait to see the images we get from her or the drone. I want a full 360 degree high definition shot to stand there on the surface of Mars in VR. There is older ones available that look great so I have high hopes.

You can't always get what you want, but yeah... with artificial intelligence we can dramatically improve framerate, contrast, textures and resolution of 100 yr+, burnt out, shitty quality silent era clips, so Perseverance & SW will give us great results. Fake or otherwise.

Everything's fake anyway. I saw on the internet that Tik Tokkers are currently proving the snow in Texas is fake too and it was the Gub'ment up to their old tricks again, trying to fool us into thinking it was snowing and stuff.

Where's your entry point?

Btw, if BTC and ETH had to fall based on this tweet, which I doubt it would, then he would buy more of it.

He has a point about the gold, unless it's gold in your hand then what security do you have if shit really hit the fan. It wouldn't mean anything.
