    I don't have kids or friends with kids in school. Could you imagine being in school during the pandemic though? Mannnnn, it's gotta really suck. I think its difficult for all the news agencies to paint an accurate picture, but I would hope they're doing the best they can.

    I heard about this when I worked there. I didn't hear much more about it but I assumed it was a major setback for sure. EDIT: SLS ready for launch!

    Which is a good couple of ships to start with.

    Avenger Titan. Cutlass Black. Freelancer. One of these three would be the ones I'd consider if I were just getting into star citizen again. @Talonsbane and @Deroth both gave some pros and cons for them which are worth noting, but I guess we all agree these are some good starters. Now, if...

Some things anger you, some things make you feel better. Nothing will ever be "enough" so I don't have any expectations for the UK either way. I...

    Webb Space Telescope Takes Flight

    Thanks for the lengthy response. You're right. ULA is a joke compared to SpaceX as far as their innovation goes. They were so mad when SpaceX came to town and pissed in their kool-aid.

    Sounds good if is true PC gamer article

    Maybe it's to a point to where the foundation is done so now, they just have to throw bodies at SQ42. More bodies = more progress. Thats not always the case with game dev, sometimes no matter how many people you put on the project you really can't move any faster if certain things aren't in place.

    I guarantee you if this was a news cycle for a couple days the amount of people wearing masks will double at a minimum.

    Yeah but the government benefits are top notch. The downside is that senior officials have an incentive to sit on their ass and ride the rest of their days out on easy mode until retirement. Not disparaging their jobs and their achievements, just pointing out things I've been told by a NASA...
