Just a wee bit more than an annoyance. An inconvenience, perhaps?

Why are larger propellers quieter? Does it have to do with the rotation rate required to generate thrust?

So catching up is impossible? You just always stays 50 years behind?

Avoiding spoilers would be a never-ending nightmare :)

she did not get selected into the ESA astronaut chor

Ah, a pity then. I wonder if she could reapply in a subsequent year?

Alternatively, I suppose there's always a chance she could be hired by a company like Axiom or similar...

And as far as I know, lemmy.ml has no affiliation with Mali whatsoever.

Makes sense. Thanks for your perspective!

It does not have scaled sorting, along with any of the other new Lemmy features.

I love Eternity, but I'm exploring other options.

To Isengard, to Isengard!

After a brief hold due to ground winds, the count resumed, followed by a nominal launch and payload deploy.

Well done Rocketlab on another mission!

Excellent points. Multi-communities seem like they might be more trouble than they are worth.

Stats

  • This will be the 6th launch for Rocket Lab this year.
  • This will be the 48th overall launch for Rocket Lab.

Payload info:

Rocket Lab mission page

NextSpaceflight:

The PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment) mission will send two CubeSats into space to study how much heat the planet absorbs and emits from its polar regions, including the Arctic and Antarctica.

Analysis of PREFIRE measurements will inform climate and ice models, providing better projections of how a warming world will affect sea ice loss, ice sheet melt, and sea level rise. Improving climate models can ultimately help to provide more accurate projections on the impacts of storm severity and frequency, as well as coastal erosion and flooding.
