Technically August 28 is our 3 year anniversary but I thought I would make this journal early as I needed to say a few things...

First off, this admin is starting a new job tomorrow. So what does that mean for you? Well that means that I can't spam launch updates as much anymore as more launch times will conflict with work and college. But not to worry, come hell or high water, I will be out there for Exploration Flight Test 1 this December to bring you guys updates at the very least, though I do plan to stream the launch (pending iPhone wants to cooperate and be my wifi hotspot) as a NASA Social Guest. Also with this new job comes the possibility of funding for this group, like I said back in January I was looking at the possibility of getting tickets for EFT-1 to raffle off, this is looking more likely now though I am not going to commit to this just yet as I still want to talk to the GeneralTate (our founder) about logistics of doing such a thing and seeing what my first few paychecks yield.

Secondly, some of you may have noticed that some things have gone to the wayside, launch journals not being completed in a timely matter or at all, launches not being covered on our Facebook, no streams or videos of launches, etc. Well this is because it is to overwhelming for me to do alone, and it is got going to get any easier if I have to continue doing it alone. I am going to talk to the admins and the founder to see if there is anyway to alleviate some of the tasks I am doing by assigning someone else to do it or eliminating it as non-essential to the objective of this group.

Last but not least, it is impossible for any one person to have that to the answers all the questions about NASA. I try my best to answer all the questions asked to me but sometimes I get asked questions I simply don't know and every once in awhile someone will point out that I gave an incorrect answer. Since the end of the Shuttle Program I have lost contact with most of my acquaintances that worked for NASA, people who I relied on for accurate and reliable information. If any of you deviants in this group work(ed) for NASA, ULA, USA, JPL, Roscosmos, SpaceX, JAXA, ESA, USAF Space Wing, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rocketdyne, anyone else I am forgetting X3, and are willing to let me ask you questions every once in awhile, if you could note me at OrionTheLugia that wold be greatly appreciated.

Thank you guys for your time and thank you for continuing to be awesome and make this group what it is today and giving it a bright future as we approach EFT-1 and go on to see SLS/EM-1.
Robin Williams Remembered: Watch Him Make NASA Laugh in 1988 (Video)
By Miriam Kramer, Staff Writer   |   August 12, 2014 11:29am ET

Robin Williams, an Oscar-winning actor best known for his comedic work, died yesterday (Aug. 11) of an apparent suicide at 63 years old. In 1988, Williams helped to wake up the crew of NASA's space shuttle Discovery to start their morning.

"G-o-o-d morning Discovery!" Williams said in a video of the wakeup call posted by partner "G-o-o-d morning Discovery! G-o-o-d morning Discovery! Rise and shine, boys. Time to start doing that shuttle shuffle. You know what I mean. Hey, here's a little song coming from the billions of us to the five of you."

Mission Controllers are seen laughing and smiling in the video as Williams' recorded wakeup (which makes reference to his 1987 role in "Good Morning, Vietnam") is broadcast to the astronauts orbiting Earth. The actor's introduction led into a space shuttle-themed song to the tune of the "Green Acres" TV show. [NASA's Final Space Shuttle Wakeup Songs]

Williams' call to the shuttle marked the first morning of the STS-26 mission, according to a New York Times story about the flight. The mission was the first launched since the Challenger disaster in 1986.

This may not be your thing, but I designed what I wanted to be a 'practical' space freighter design back in the eighties called an ARCOS. I also came up some practical designs under the label LEXINGTON. If you're interested at all, please take a look in my gallery - thank you - and loving the dA page here.
