Unless this is fake news, a satellite was launched into orbit today or yesterday. Maybe a week ago. I Luv it because it is Ours.

SpaceX launched two sets of satellites this month, already. They are aiming for 24 launches this year (2017).
There's good reason why Elan Musk was mentioned in the new (fictional) Startrek Discovery show, as one of the pioneers of getting humans off our planet...
Cool stuff.

It IS really cool. This one was launched by NASA. It was probably to detect global warming.

There is a network because there is satellite killers out there. I could never get into the "Star Wars" movies with the ugly aliens. Whatever the theme was, with all the best effects, it sucks. Reality sucks too but we can change it in small ways. Remember, we think over areas the unsung hero s already described. Things don't become serious because we didn't see it.
