The idiots of the U.S. war machine sell to one lot of idiots while the Russian war machine sells to the other lot idiots, so how do we get rid of all these idiots and who is the bigger idiot in the end?


There's a craft heading for the sun in August, maybe there's room for a few..

It's the actions and inactions of ALL Governments with lies, deceit, greed and mistrust..There is no one Government to blame, it's all of them just like in our past history and I'm sure our future..

What I think would be great is if every leader on Earth at the same time, looked at our little blue planet together, then look around at the vastness of space..

When Russia can send spacecraft like NASA, Space X, Blue Origin and others with scientific stuff that can help all (Other than Boast there new weapons and some have failed) until then, they should remain silent..

IIRC one of the biggest problems is the funding was cut to near zero one year. People have to have food on the table. Not everyone could wait around a year to be brought back on the project.

There seem to be two big issues left. The first seems to be some sort of engineering and building screw up at NGAS on the propulsion system. That isn't being talked about. If they have identified it they will fix it.
The second seems to be the sun shield. Never flown before. Seems like they tried something and it didn't test okay. Rinse and Repeat. Does not give good confidence all the problems are out.

It seems to be an issue to unfold and unfurl things in space. Skylab, ISS, Light Sail, there is a list of failures of those kinds of operations. We don't have zero g test facility for those.


If the launch of the telescope is postponed for 3 years, then this indicates that there are fundamental problems.
Disclosure of the solar shield is not a fundamental problem. Disclosure of the design in space has long been worked out and with this there are no problems.
The telescope has 18 independent mirrors, which must be controlled and must be self-tuning.
Probably, when testing the telescope, theoretical calculations were not achieved. The telescope did not give positive results. I mean the mirror. Each mirror has its own control and adjustment system.
Mirror is the most important thing that is in the telescope and if they do not work, then the telescope is useless.

3 years is a long time, for small problems.

I'd like to see them shipping it to the ISS and testing on a smaller scale, then attaching main sale to craft if all works ok..

Running low on Data again, and the replica is offline- disabled.

. . Yes I noticed that a few hours ago. I decided it is not a good idea to look at the status page, it only causes anxiety ...

. . According to splitter status there are 3 channels of APs splitting, but the server status says all the AP splitters are down. We are down to less than 700 channels of Blc01 tapes left and I am not at all sure the Blc15 tapes will actually split, they have been idly sitting there for weeks now. It could be a cold weekend for Wiggo :(

Too late I'm a sufferer of Panic Anxiety Attacks lol..

Wiggo may end up frozen by Monday..
