NASA will try again to fuel Artemis 1 moon rocket in June as launch slips to August

Artemis 1 will send an uncrewed Orion on a roughly month-long journey around the moon. The mission — the first in NASA's Artemis program of lunar exploration — is designed to ensure that both SLS and Orion are ready for crewed flights.

If all goes well with Artemis 1, Artemis 2 will send astronauts around the moon in 2024 and Artemis 3 will land a crew near the lunar south pole in 2025 or thereabouts.

FAA delays environmental review of SpaceX's Starship yet another month, to May 31

SpaceX's is gearing up to launch the first-ever Starship orbital test flight, which will lift off from Starbase and send the upper stage on a round-the-world trek that will end with a splashdown off the Hawaiian island of Kauai, if all goes according to plan.

Starship consists of a huge first-stage booster called Super Heavy and a 50 meters upper-stage spacecraft known as Starship. Starship and Super Heavy are both designed to be completely and rapidly reusable. SpaceX is developing Starship to take people and cargo to the moon, Mars and beyond.

Harsh winters ahead: Earth sent rovers brace for severe Martian cold

The Martian winter is over 150 days as compared to Earth's 89 days amd rovers sent from Earth are preparing for the dark days ahead.

During winter, the day temperature ranges around-20 degrees Celcius, and the nights are far colder, going as low as -100 degrees Celcius. Several missions on Mars will be affected by these cold temperatures as they begin a hibernation phase to safeguard their equipment from the harsh conditions.

China's Zhurong rover enters safe mode

China's Mars rover, the Zhurong, was put into safe mode in light of a Martian dust storm, according to a state-run media report.

And it could put China's rover out of action until the end of 2022.

Zhurong rover probably won't go fully active again until December, when Martian spring hits.

@amelialovett Nop! "We" are working on it :blobcatgiggle:

Most things will be send via robots first, so we build up a base on Mars and send people later! But I think one of the biggest issues still is radiation.. How can we protect hoomans from that in deep space! 🤔

I've been trying to piece together the playlist for a Chirinuruwowaka concert, and it's a great way to get to know more of their songs. I try searching for snippets of lyrics and randomly listening to unknown songs. The concert had 22 songs from at least 11 different albums and I still need to figure out the names for two of them.

The last one I found is a real gem:
咲かぬなら ("Sakanu nara", "If they don't bloom")
