Dead right both  :thumbsup:   (and a great pic)

Am getting annoyed with the assorted pseuds getting dragged out for the TV this week saying shite like "we're going back" and "we're going to Mars"

No we're not.  Celebrate the 50 years absolutely it was an amazing inspiring and brave achievement but what the anniversary really tells you is that in 50 years no one has ever come up with a good reason to go back

Well, whatever nevermind

Stuff in Space

What a mess noooo:

 eeek:

Worth remembering that to scale all objects shown would fit into one dot. There's a lot of space out there.

True but if you zoom out there's one hell of a lot of 'stuff' out there and much of it in non degrading orbits
Well, whatever nevermind
