התחרות על שימוש מחדש (Reusability) במשגרים מתחממת! חברת בלו אוריג'ין (של היזם ג'ף בזוס) הנחיתה לראשונה את המשגר שלה בנובמבר - וביצעה עמו טיסה נוספת אתמול. זו הפעם הראשונה בה נעשה שימוש חוזר במשגר שמסוגל לשגר לחלל (לטיסה תת מסלולית, יש להדגיש).

Venus-Saturn Conjuction: Be sure to get some good sleep tonight - the sky will be dazzling in the wee hours of tomorrow morning! Keep looking up! Tomorrow before dawn – January 7, 2016 – look for the slender waning crescent moon close to the planets Venus and Saturn in the eastern predawn sky. And know that #Venus and #Saturn are getting close! They’ll be closest on the morning of January 9, with a conjunction on January 9 at 0400 UTC. It’ll be their closest conjunction since August 26, 2006 (and the closest #conjunction of any two planets since March 22, 2013).

For those of you who get up early, look for the crescent Moon and Venus and Saturn in a tight triangle on Thursday the 7th of January appearing to be almost touching one another.
