They've been docked for 63-ish days and are in process now of undocking with return to earth scheduled for noon-ish tomorrow (Sunday).

Pretty cool to think about that rather than all the BS we're seeing around here.
Thanks for the reminder! Now I know what I'll be watching all night. I love this stuff!

The 150 meter test flight of the newest starship prototype might happen in the next day or two as well. Look up starhopper test on YouTube for the previous, smaller version.

Newest SpaceX starship prototype took flight a little bit ago. It looked more ridiculous than I had imagined. If you ever wondered what a grain silo would look like with an off-center rocket engine strapped to it:

It looks like one of the old metal cans of brake fluid lifting off.

Fun fact - brake fluid is very prone to condensation and it ruins it. If you are going to keep brake fluid for more than 1 year you should buy it in the metal can instead of the plastic because the metal keeps the condensation out.

Raises hell with auto paint too.
