    I'd never heard of it, but it appears to be real. Jessica Meir, currently up on the Space Station, has a masters degree from it. (Along with a bachelors from Brown and a PhD from UCSD.)

    "You see, to be quite frank, Kevin, the fabric of the universe is far from perfect. It was a bit of botched job, you see. We only had seven days to make it. And that's where this comes in. This is the only map of all the holes. Well, why repair them? Why not use them to get stinking rich?"

    To put a different spin on "Mars will kill you", if you're enjoying this thread and aren't watching The Expanse (or reading the books on which it's based), you're seriously missing out. I just binged Season Four, and it was great stuff.

    Here's your opportunity people!! You've all wanted to build spaceships. (Like on some old Amazing Stories cover, or an old 1950's Science-fiction movie...)

    Well, here it is... Doing this will change your life.

    Elon says that they want to go to around-the-clock, 7 days a week Starship construction in Boca and need more rocket-shipyard workers.

    The Space Force is the former US Air Force Space Command and the new Space Force just adapted its logo. Here's the Space Command's logo (they've used it since 1982):

    The Space Force logo:

    The Air Force and Star Trek were both inspired by NASA's logo.

    While the original star trek series used a Star Fleet logo, it was rather different, more of a boomerang shape. The one that looked like this didn't appear until DS9.
