                • Radarsat constellation satellites deployment being shown live. Launch already happened. But I assume will all be viewable after the fact.

                    I could watch SpaceX's rockets land all day. Chills everytime. All sats were deployed successfully

                    • A wee bit distant but a new discovery of a body has been discovered ...about twice as large as earth with water in the atmosphere and temperatures ranging from 1 - 40 deg. C.

                          Must admit apart from the vid title the content flew right by ... apologies. Here's one which resonates with me on the mysterious topic of existence out there..

                              Wondering out here, all of that sounds promising, but correct me if I'm wrong, if the size is twice as big and the mass of the planet is 8 times more wouldn't that mean that the gravity would be too much for a human body? Unless we all become Shwarzneggers of course?

                                This is true. Some form of anti-gravitational system (and suit) will have to be available... but I would think if this were truly a body to get to the distance/time travel issue will have to be solved first?
