Remember when you went to see Avengers Endgame and the audience reactions were as much fun as the movie? @NASASpaceflight @KSpaceAcademy @Erdayastronaut @ej_sa @FelixSchlang

I do have a very cool video about my flight with @GoZeroG but I need to clear some things first, but here's some screenshots of the part of the plane you never see in the other videos:

Not a great day, but I had to put everything else out of my mind so I could make the first landing of my pilot training.

Of course the House budget wants NASA to spend more money on SLS and Orion, and less on the lunar lander. Actual exploration is a secondary consideration. spacenews.com/house-bill-tri鈥

By-election day in #TivertonandHoniton , so let me tell about their former MP, who was once one of the most famous people in England, a national hero, a disgraced fraudster, and an astonishingly accomplished piratical maniac. He had quite a life.

We are proud to announce the first sale of a space-manufactured optical crystal to researchers at @OhioState! The crystal was produced by our Industrial Crystallization Facility (ICF) when it was onboard @Space_Station last year: bit.ly/3n7GdzR

Working to edit together a video about my @GoZeroG flight and the nitty gritty details of how you fly zero g parabolas. And I instantly noticed when importing some of the cabin video that you can see when the high and low gs are because of the volume of the engine sound.

The engines are throttled up for entry into the climb, then when the lo gravity phase is entered the angle of attack is reduced, and so is the induced drag, so two of the engines get idled while the third, center engine, is trimmed so it only offsets drag.

On pullout of the dive on the other side they need a higher angle of attack which means extra drag and therefore extra thrust from all 3 engines. So it's really easy to hear the difference in engine sound through the parabolas.

So did Darth Vader forget that a Star Destroyer has a few squadrons of fighters in its hangar when deciding who to chase?
