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:

Do you know the sound the TARDIS makes? The wheezing and groaning sound? That sound brings hope wherever it is heard. Even to you +Michael Interbartolo

Doug did a really good job at showing the volume difference between a metal structure and inflatable structure which if you are on a 6 month trip to Mars the more room the better.
 
Last Month JSC hosted author Andy Weir (The Martian) for a week of talks, tours and other events themed around NASA's efforts to make the #journeytomars. Doug from the Engineering Directorate gave this Ted like Talk about the advantages of using inflatable structures for sending Humans to and as well as living on Mars.

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.

Wasn't there dramas with cavitation (probably not the right word) on the pusher plate after a while?

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.

Plan your time for +Comicpalooza Houston​ around the Science Faction Track
Friday morning kicks off four days of pop culture and #journeytomars at the George r Brown convention center. Sure you could go see Hayley Atwell or the cast of Gotham or learn how to build a Dalek or watch a quidditch match but you can also learn about science of the +International Space Station​ what is in store for +NASA Orion​ and the technologies +NASA JSC Engineering​ is working on for Mars.
