General Space Stuff (Space-X and all that jazz)

Another launch in 9 minutes :slight_smile:
No recovery of the first stage today.

POZ is the primary payload, which is a surveying/imaging satellite being launched for Spain.

Sending test satellites as a secondary payload for Global Internet Coverage… run by Space X :smiley:

Hayabusa II has successfully landed 2 mini rovers onto an asteroid!

Holy fuck.

When I saw “Hayabusa” I thought the Japanese had gone one better than Elon’s car and put a motorbike in space…

Pretty awesome though.
