My favorite Kickstarter
I know I have ranted over the frustration on space, but this is worth fighting for. It really is frustrating how broken our space exploration system is in terms of leadership (lack there of), budgetary instability (congressional jobs program) and lack of sound project management (orion takes ~15 years from contract to first crewed test flight). will a Chinese space race really be the kick in the pants we need or will those in power continue with the mantra "when China gets to the moon they will see 6 american flags already there"

for those that missed previous rants:

Got here a little early to check out some robots before the marvel vs. DC photoshoot at 11. M4 has his upgraded star lord and Emma in her warrior Elsa. Antonio is taking it easy today.

It's the documentary we deserve and the feel good story to start off the friday
Batkid documentary comes out in June and I think a dramatized movie version of the story with Julia Roberts is still in work

New infinity stone orb complete
Not as good as I wanted but it will do for this weekend at comicpalooza. The magnets aren't flush due to the gorilla glue expanding too much. I might try to add a layer of thin foam to build up the ring in between magnets and I feel like the inside wear the stone sits needs some more depth but this will do for M4 costume this weekend. He still has the full orb as well for a better closed look.

Yeah that might work. I think if I do the foam I can cut in details to give it some dimension and dremel out some of the stone area to give it some depth.

They are for the space station, journey to Mars and technology. The technology poster is the same as the banner in the picture behind the exo skeleton

An interesting proposition to send a crew to Pluto
Nice to see Project Orion(the 1950's nuclear bomb one not the small spacecraft NASA is working on) mentioned as the means not done futuristic propulsion.
A manned mission to Pluto may be far out, but it's not impossible.
