We need to start a countdown to the James Webb Telescope launch
(not so) fun fact
I worked on the facility upgrades at JSC to retrofit a giant vacuum chamber with cryogenic panels for testing of the JWST
I left before it was done, so theres no telling if the dipshits got them put in right. I was barely able to get them to build it right ffs.

77k or 4k? hazardous cryogens are fun

Not sure, I didnt get to run it, we just built all the cryo panels
Whatever matches closest to the cold of deep space...like -400F or so, I think.
Basically big pie wedge shaped floor panels with d-shaped tubing welded to the bottom, all aluminum structural frame with 2021 (I think, its been a while) skin on it. The pieces were to fit into the floor space of the chamber then be jumpered together.
The thing was a beast, like 30 feet across or so.
But like I said, Id bailed before we could install.

thats 4k, liquid helium. Space is like 2-4k most the time unless you're in the sun

I’d love to have my consciousness placed into a cyborg. What say you?

Would being cryogenically stored like Disney make that a possibility?

Sorry to go off topic but I figured this thread would provide answers quicker than the pooping thread.

I think a number of people here could code up a random "Immi Says". Sort of like the mystery 8 ball. Wouldn't be the same but probably funny as hell.

SpaceX is fuckin' amazing. At this rate, i bet we have a human on mars by 2030, and itll be a private citizen, not a NASA astronaut.
That's actually disgusting, but go off.

There was like a 40yr period of US history where we weren't entirely beholden to the whims of the wealthy.

Well, one thing I personally like about a space billionaire like Elon is he isn't spending a lot of taxpayer money on figuring out when and where the universe started and other grander aspirations of space exploration and astronomy . He wants to build something that can go up, do its shit, come back down. I personally resent a large portion of what is spent on astronomical science via tax dollars. That's someone else's religion.
