That’s obviously a crashed alien saucer that the photos somehow got leaked to the media. Just look at the little portholes! Now NASA has to try and pass it off as part of its fictional Mars missions. It’s out there in the desert somewhere. The truth is out there!

Hey, I can sling this bull poop as far as any anyone else can! (I know, stop encouraging them)

Rocket Lab’s Sikorsky S-92 is capable of lifting 5,000 kilograms, Beck noted, with the Electron booster weighing “just a little under 1,000 kilograms.”

While the test had “a ton of margin,” they used “really conservative estimates” to maximize safety.
