Let's do some SPACE stuff ...

Thanks to Visual Capitalist to provide the full Infographic at  https://www.visualcapitalist.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/hubble-telescope-30-year-legacy.html 

Great summary of 30 years. All these Space objects are using computers, to go there, stay there, communicate and come back, if planned. Another collection of data from the same supplier about The Evolution of Computer Science in One Infographic  -->  https://www.visualcapitalist.com/history-computer-science-one-infographic/ 

May 2020 could be a historical moment for SpaceX and NASA? When everything goes according to plan, human spaceflight will return to the United States since the Space Shuttle was retired in 2011, see CREW DEMO-2 MISSION at  https://www.spacex.com/news/2020/04/17/crew-demo-2-mission. Great when you have a long-term vision that finally becomes reality and is only another step towards exploring the Mars for Elon Musk.

“What I’m trying to do is to make a significant difference in space flight and help make space flight accessible to almost anyone.” (Elon Musk - Mar, 2012). "Rockets are the only form of transportation on Earth where the vehicle is built anew for each journey. What if you had to build a new plane for every flight?" (Sep, 2014),  https://elonmusknews.org/blog/elon-musk-spacex-mars-quotes 

As Elon likes reduce, reuse, recycle a lot, here some fitting TED talks,  https://www.ted.com/playlists/740/reduce_reuse_recycle 

P.S.: Thanks a lot for passing the #285k overall reader mark this week, cool stuff. Only another 15k readers to go for the next milestone. Possibly we can reach it by end of May already?
