Should I switch the server as my admin is blocking @spacex (the whole server) ?

There seems to be no problem with the professionals https://astrodon.social, check @spacex (on their server)

@SallyStrange well there are about a dozen "old milk" things I really appreciate, they are called "cheese". And it would be interesting to see a statistic how Elon's private flights outhweigh his influence on electric vehicles. Please share 🔗

@edwinhorneij no worries, what was your intention ? (the vote is anyway just to say "it's completely dorky to weigh anything just on Elon"). The whole page is thought to make people think 🤔. Seems to be worth it in your case 😀

@tony I didn't get your point https://techhub.social/about. I don't need to reply to SpaceX news, it's like an RSS feed @nicdex

@Raccoon maybe you should also ask why you've been blocked ?

@Raccoon "the company has broken records and brought electric vehicles into the mainstream" https://www.forbes.com/sites/qai/2022/09/29/tesla-a-history-of-innovation-and-headaches. Regarding SpaceX : You may probably explain why Boeing, Blue Origin and others lag behind ? 🤔🙄 And who founded it ? https://www.businessinsider.com/spacex-locations-maps-texas-california-florida-washington-2018-3

@edwinhorneij most likely, I assume. Checked with my app (I seldom use it), looks like this. But it's probably not comparable with yours https://open-store.io/app/nl.btr.mastodon

📆 August 7, 2023 #Satellite 🛰️ operator #Umbra released a 16 cm/pixel 📏 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image 📷. Unlike #optical imaging, Umbra’s SAR #radars are not dependent on light, allowing them to deliver high-resolution images around the clock and in all #weather ⛅ conditions. https://payloadspace.com/umbra-releases-a-16-cm-commercial-satellite-image/

#Astronomy 📆 December 2020 We know that small #asteroids ☄️ hit #Earth all the time; we know that larger ones 📏 can cause significant damage when they hit 💥; and we have the fundamental technology needed to deflect an #asteroid if it were on a collision course. Understanding 💭 asteroids could therefore be a matter of life and death ☠️. https://www.astronomy.com/science/were-coming-for-the-asteroids-are-the-asteroids-coming-for-us/

The #100X Declaration calls for a 100-fold increase 📈 in detection* and monitoring 🔭 of #asteroids ☄️. "The more we learn about asteroid impacts 💥, the clearer it becomes that the human race has been living on borrowed time ⏱️" https://www.cbsnews.com/news/asteroid-day-raising-awareness-earth-could-be-hit-by-asteroids/

@Powerfromspace1 given those numbers, yes "The bad news is NASA estimates that it tracks only about 40 percent of the asteroids large enough that they could cause calamity if they were to hit Earth." https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/10/24/nasa-asteroid-telescope/

Every year there are now almost two reports of ☄️ falls that directly hit human beings or their belongings, which we call “damaging falls” https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0032063317304580

The #NASA #JPL got a nice #Juno 🛰️ video of the #Jupiter flyby, but it's got >200MB. So here's the 1MB version. Original : https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/images/pia25723-juno-offers-a-window-seat-for-a-jupiter-flyby

: "I'm highly confident it would be less than $10 million 💰 all in, fast forward two or three years from now," said about flight during the presentation * https://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-spacex-starship-rocket-update-flight-cost-million-2022-2

Visualized : 10 million $ / 100k kg = 100 $ 💵 per kg

@pennypenguin "#knowledge is prerequisite to survival" (#CarlSagan) https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Cosmos The question is whether a #catastrophic event is the prerequisite for #awareness. Might also be something else https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impact_event#Frequency_and_risk

@pennypenguin yeah, "hasn't seen yet" is a good point "The bad news is #NASA estimates that it tracks only about 40 percent of the #asteroids large enough that they could cause calamity if they were to hit Earth." https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/10/24/nasa-asteroid-telescope/ (similar to the #ESA numbers)

@pennypenguin that's not generally a technical issue (in terms of telescope resolution), they just don't got the capacity (yet) to scan everything in every direction. That's why they're often first found by hobby astronomers. Additionally, small faint objects are more difficult to track (if there's not an "automated" high resolution sky scanner for every angle)

#ESA 📆 13/02/2023 For the seventh time, a small #asteroid ☄️ was discovered in #space as it raced towards #Earth 🌍 seven hours before the #impact. One day we’ll find an imminent impactor that isn’t one metre in size, but perhaps 100 https://www.esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Images/2023/02/Seventh_shooting_star_ever_spotted_before_strike

@FryBry the problem is people don't develop awareness from "nice, coloured fireballs" as they think they will never be affected ☄️ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtE18GhVmRg
