Embedded below the fold. We talked about SpaceX’s new spaceport in Texas, its upcoming launch schedule, the prepwork on its recovered first stage. We also talked about dinosaurs, and how the theory that they were killed by an asteroid is decidedly uncertain.

    SpaceX better not import the dirt to its spaceport from Mexico, or they will hear from the nation builder. Although it would literally make America 320,000 cubic feet greater, at the waterboarder :-)

    I like your space journalism, although this format is too brief and broad for the deeper analyses where you excel compared to other bloggers and podcasters, except for some much more niched specialists, like Spudis on the Moon. You really add value to the news most others simply repeat and at most make some trivial value judgement about.
