Worried about your datacenter carbon footprint? Why not put it in orbit?

The European Commission is to carry out a feasibility study on putting datacenters into orbit as part of its wide-ranging Horizon Europe research program, and has now announced companies taking part in the project.

The spent Long 6A rocket launching China’s Yunhai-3 satellite has broken up, scattering over 50 different chunks into low-Earth orbit after it failed to disintegrate completely upon reentry in the atmosphere.

Eggheads show how network flaw could lead to NASA crew pod loss. Key word: Could

A vulnerability in network technology widely used in space and aircraft could, if successfully exploited, have disastrous effects on those critical systems, according to academics.

That includes putting crewed NASA missions in peril – if someone were able to get into a position to pull off such an attack, natch. Abusing this flaw does require a number of steps and being able to intrude upon the critical system’s network, which may be non-trivial.

Artemis I isn’t just a test run – there’s science to be done

Also: Someone who really should have been in the movie.

Unfortunately, snoopy never made it too the moons surface

Snoopy was the Apollo Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) module for Apollo 10. Apollo 10 is billed as the “Dress Rehersal” for landing humans on the Moon. Snoopy separated from the command module Charlie Brown and orbited the Moon. It approached close enough to the Lunar surface that boulders could be seen, just under what a commercial airliner flies above the Earth. The lower stage has been discarded in low lunar orbit, and since has crash landed, however, the ascent stage had extra fuel, and it was commanded to leave. Snoopy managed to obtain a heliocentric orbit before it burned out, and thus is most likely somewhere out in Deep Space, and the only vehicle to have life support for humans ever sent to deep space.
