April 21 2017

The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.

It's time to get off the sidelines and make a difference.

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.

The March for Science is a celebration of science. It's not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.

Nevertheless, the march has generated a great deal of conversation around whether or not scientists should involve themselves in politics. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask instead: can we afford not to speak out in its defense?

There is no Planet B. Join the #MarchForScience.

Iliya Zaki - Fire, Save Us (2017) | Dramatic Piano & Orchestra | Epic Music VN

Fire, Save Us is a musical representation of Iliya’s struggle to find his fire for music after his decision to enter an 8-month hiatus from music and social media. Spurred by an unending stream of heart-breaking developments in world news and the deaths of several friends– some due to suicide, Iliya’s turn inward culminated in this emotional 7-minute epic, through which he bares his soul and the essence of his realisation that life is truly fragile.

Katherine Jenkins - Abigail's Song (Silence is all you Know)

When you're alone, silence is all you know.
When you're alone, silence is all you know
Let in the noise and let it grow.

When you're alone, silence is all you see
When you're alone, silence is all you'll be
Give me your hand and come to me.

When you are here, music is all around.
When you are near, music is all around.
Open your eyes, don't make a sound.

Let in the shadow, let in the shadow,
Let in the light of your bright shadow.
Let in the shadow, let in the shadow.
Let in the light of your bright shadow.

Let in the light.
Let in the light.
Let in the light of your sweet shadow.

When you're alone, oh,
Silence is all you know.
Silence is all,
Silence is all around.
Silence is all,
Silence is all around

SpaceX SES-10 Mission - The Return Of The Falcon
Liftoff targeted for March 30. 22:27 UTC, 31. 00:27 CEST.

Today may be a historic day for SpaceX, and spaceflight in general, as SpaceX is going to launch a commercial communications satellite into a geostationary transfer orbit on a previously flown and recovered booster. One of the goals of the company is to substantially improve the cost of space transportation by developing a reusable launch system. While they managed to land and recover eight of their Falcon 9 first stages, this will be the first attempt to launch a refurbished booster for the second time.

Primary Mission - Deployment of SES-10 into the Correct Orbit
The mission will place SES-10, with a weight of 5282kg, into a 35410 km x 218 km x 26.2° geostationary transfer orbit. From there, the satellite will circularize its orbit using its own engine, providing additional ~1800m/s of ΔV.

Secondary Mission - First Stage Landing
Payload mass and velocity at separation are at the limit of the landing capability for this version of Falcon 9. Nevertheless, the first stage is equipped with recovery gear (cold gas thrusters, steerable grid fins, landing legs), and an attempt will be made to land the stage on the autonomous drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You". To save fuel, the booster will probably skip the boostback burn for a ballistic reentry, use a minimal reentry burn to limit peak heating in the denser parts of the atmosphere to survivable temperatures, and conduct a three-engine (1-3-1) landing burn to reduce gravity losses, for a pretty hot and risky landing.

Tertiary Mission - Fairing Recovery!
Steve Jurvetson confirmed SpaceX will be attempting to recover the fairings on this mission, another milestone for reusability, given the fairings supposedly cost a few million each and take quite some time to produce.

-- Good luck, everyone!
