There was a media telecon about the commercial #lunar lander #Peregrine - to launch on the first #Vulcan rocket in about four weeks - and its NASA payloads in particular a few hours ago: a recording at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHfI3LX26QY

"Yesterday, we took the very last photograph of Peregrine in our clean room before it was prepped for an early morning shipment to Florida", says the caption of this image of Peregrine shared by Astrobotic on 27 October.
"Astrobotic announced today the Peregrine lunar lander has arrived safely in Cape Canaveral, Florida," said the original caption: "The spacecraft was unloaded at Astrotech facilities where it will be integrated with the United Launch Alliance (ULA)’s Vulcan for launch on December 24, 2023."

The text reads "Next time on It's Got Star Trek: Bem & The Practical Joker" superimposed over images from each of those episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series: The lead character of Bem (aptly named "Bem"), a green-faced alien with red mohawk and side hair; and Scotty covered in what one may presume is shaving cream (or the Starfleet equivalent).

As a #TimeTravelling #Vulcan I knew on 11-18-2022 that #ElonMusk 's decisions were making Twitter unsafe. I talked to @nicolesandler about what the public could do by contacting advertisers & regulators.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGsigfjoA5E&t=3s
Then on 12-1-2022 I explained the harm Musk's decisions at #Twitter will cause to people all around the world.
This week we should remember that #Elon 's idea of "free speech" IGNORES that harm.

It is interesting to find in retrospective as #StarTrek slowly step by step slide from sci-fi strict definition into wider scope as its mystic and fantasy components grew together with exploring new depths of #Vulcan culture and other cultures with active practices of shamanism, animism and #magic . Often authors tried to fit that into some more or less "reductionists" or sci-fi explanations, but still - sometimes storyline just could not be pushed into narrow path of pure sci-fi.

#Futurama's David X. Cohen Turned His #StarTrek Pet Peeve It Into A Character

“Cohen revealed that Dr. #Zoidberg's inability to understand human physiology stemmed from a very real anxiety he had while watching "Star Trek" as a child. One might look at the grumpy Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and wonder how the half-human-half-#Vulcan Spock (Leonard Nimoy) felt about a non-Vulcan operating on him. 
Flip the species, and that notion points to Zoidberg” #tv #cartoon

We saw it one final time in flight as it did a farewell flyby tour of the country and we got to see it fly over Bicester Heritage, but I didn't know we'd get to see that at the time I took these photos, so I was very emotional #Aviation #VulcanBomber

SLS isn’t even the biggest one! & the envisioned capacity is basically just thru TLI, usually pieces of 10-30 tonnes each. So that puts it squarely in sights of even 20-50+tonne commercial launchers (#FH, #Terran-R, #Vulcan, New Glenn, etc) using refueling, not to mention #Starship.
