uh... SpaceX's youtube channel is announcing a live stream for this monday called "First Private Passenger on Lunar BFR Mission"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu7WJD8vpAQ

It cannot be the thing, they haven't even built the BFR, have they? so it'll probably be some kind of announcement/press conference/big publicity stunt.

That is a Native American variety called 'Glass Gem Corn' and yes it really does grow like that.

That's purple corn from Peru.

Please tell me that BFR stands for "Big Fuckin' Rocket".

It's implied.

"This is a very obtuse video-game reference," Musk told GQ. "In the original Doom, the gun that was like the crazy gun was the BFG 9000 or something like that. So it was sort of named after the gun in Doom. But that's not its official name, of course."


The family friendly version is Big Falcon Rocket.

Joking or not, it's Doom, you can run it on anything with a screen. Seriously, OS X, Windows whatever, Linux... original graphics or improved graphics.

even web based, no download needed

First Private Passenger on Lunar BFR Mission

https://dearmoon.earth/

full spacex stream

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu7WJD8vpAQ

One Japanese business man is the passenger, he didn't just one seat, he bought all seats (available seats for passengers? not sure yet, I guess there will be a couple actual astronauts at least). He wants to take artists with him. It should happen in 2023.

Approximately 12 people would go on the first flight, around 6 would be passengers.

more info you can read instead of watching a long video

Behavior of sharks analyzed at the White Shark Cafe:

Image


It is still unclear if the sharks are hunting for tiny plankton and other fish, or for larger prey attracted by that smaller life. There is also an unexplained difference in the behavior of male sharks compared to female sharks.

It didn't stop at the sign! that's bad.

And I bet the boxes are not for cargo, but they must have gyroscopes and computers.
