    TT09: I have seen presentations on Stratolaunch and it is really cool. It’s a shame it’s so lost in the hype about SpaceX.

    So many of these are really cool science, but I seem to be in a mood where the oddly funny is what strikes most:

    TT11: I suppose when you have an abundant supply of beer waste available, you find ways to use it. But I do particularly like this one. And if some brewer is contributing to funding it, I look forward to the marketing campaign: Support the Mars Mission – Drink More Beer!

    TT14: “Australians consume six billion cups of coffee every year” I may be living in the wrong country…
    But it’s nice to know that the waste from my other major vice can be put to good use. We compost our coffee grounds, but look forward to someday loading them into a hopper that will feed my in-home 3D printer.

    TT15: The question is whether the super villian would go by Midas or Rumpelstiltskin. Honestly, this is great fodder for a scifi plot. In fact, I could see a Star Trek TNG style Wesley’s science experiment gone wild resulting in someone with an unwanted Midas touch. Or maybe The Orville could run with it. 🙂Report

      Stratolaunch’s problem is that the rockets it will carry provide 443 kg to LEO. While there are interesting things to do within that limit, SpaceX gets all the attention because of the build-up to the BFR and its 150,000 kg to LEO, or with orbital refueling, 150,000 kg to Mars.Report
