A perfect example of history being written by the victors.

Didn’t realise Russians had a space station in the 70s. Will check it out.

I also didn’t realise for a long time that they landed on Venus. It’s annoying that conflict/propaganda doesn’t let us celebrate human achievements.

Similar to how we don’t see China lauded in the west much for their massive achievement of bringing people out of poverty.

They’re working on the new Chinese station and it gets almost 0 coverage. Some space news sites are better than others, it’s hard to be country agnostic but it’s rewarding just focusing on the rocket/achievement.

One of my favorite rockets is the Russian Proton, the shape of the flame coming off the bottom looks amazing.

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) is the first-ever trial of a “planetary defence system”.

If the orbit of an asteroid can be changed by an object sent into space, humanity may have a chance at protecting itself from the kind of disaster that did it for the dinosaurs.

Aside from a successful SLS launch, this is likely the most exciting launch anytime soon. Not only first Falcon heavy look great as it climbs but you also get the double booster return.

I wanted to use this to burn Virgin Galatic and Bezos’s Folly but honestly, it’s written so beautifully it seems to cheap to score points with it.
