Spacecraft escaping the Solar System: http://www.heavens-above.com/SolarEscap ... t=0&tz=CET

I've been keeping track (as much as one can) of the Voyagers for a few years now. The Heavens Above link is really terrific. There's something so awe-inspiring about the whole thing. That's a little piece of us that's going to leave the relative comfort of ol' Sol's gravity.

Every now and then I will check on the positions of the Voyager spacecraft. I wonder how much longer they will be able to communicate with the it?

On another note it is only 1083 1/2 more days till New Horizons gets to Pluto!!

Wow...just. I really wish I was better at physics. Astronomy was the one class I did really, really badly at in college.

This is really exciting! I wanted to be an astronomer when I was young. Turns out it's not a field with a lot of employment opportunities, but it's still my hobby.

I too wish I were better at physics-I took astronomy as a senior in high school and found the concepts to be fascinating but struggled with the math involved.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
