Remi, awesome! I must admit I would have liked to see more of the Tetris band at the end. Will they be coming back?

AH, JS and I have been working on the development of a mechanical counterpressure space suit. AH has been the technical lead on the project and has published a public report on the technical particulars of our development.
It's been a good project and the team has done an excellent job on this development.

Check it out. A young star and its orbiting planets photographed in formation. This photo has been presented as what is to come from the new ALMA array. This is research that seeks to determine the supporting data for the hypothesis of planetary formation.
 
The ALMA radio telescope has captured fledgling planets in the midst of their early formation around the sun-like star HL Tau.

A business method to proxy in another business to communities they otherwise would not serve due to resource constraints.  A rather interesting method of doing business and gaining added value.
 
IKEA Run is great because, as pointed out, #Huntsville is just too small to have an ikea.
University of Alabama in Huntsville electrician Paul Brandon didn't even know IKEA existed until about two years ago when former Ikea*run owner Todd Harmon asked him for help with a trip to the massive Atlanta store.

So I am told Venus from an airship is excellent at this time of the Venusian year. ;)
Meet the NASA Study that proposes exploration of Venus using airships and cloud cities.
Should crewed exploration of Venus come before we try to go to Mars?
