The sooner they shoot Branson up there and leave him the better IMHO...  Thumbs:

Amazing week for space exploration  :thumbsup:

First this fly-by of Ultima Thule. A mind boggling distance of 4.1 billion miles. This equates to about 6 light hours whereas the nearest star is is about 4.2 light years away. Makes you realise the Universe is a big place  eeek:

Next OSIRIS-REx spacecraft was placed into orbit around the asteroid Bennu.

And finally China lands a probe on the farside of the moon

Interesting timing by the Chinese though.
