Commencé le 13 novembre, mon trip se boucle avec cette News ce 18 décembre 2018 après 35 jours. Trop occupé pour mon job helvétique (magazines Swiss Engineering RTS-STZ + LUFA19), j’aurais bien aimé vous raconter plus d’histoires. Mais je reviendrai bientôt.
Focus on 2019:
when stars get stuck on rockets

[Titusville (Florida), December 18, 2018, rke] – Really, these rockets make me see a lot of things hectic. After the SpaceX Esh'ail launch on November 15th, SpaceX CRS-16 on December 5th, the inauguration of the Orion service module on November 16th, InsSight's Mars landing on November 26th (lived at the Kennedy Space Center , but not in Los Angeles), the launch of SpaceX SSO on December 3 also from California, my trip was intense. And now comes the launch of SpaceX GPS scheduled this December 18, 2018, day of my departure for Switzerland. But it has just been postponed.
After months of delays, the U.S. Air Force launches the first of a new generation of GPS satellites, designed to be more accurate, secure and versatile. But some of their most highly touted features will not be fully available until 2022 or later because of problems in a companion program to develop a new ground control system for the satellites, government auditors said. It's the first of 32 planned GPS III satellites that will replace older ones now in orbit. Lockheed Martin is building the new satellites outside Denver.
I cannot tell you more, I'm getting ready to go home to Switzerland. Just been able to place these few ambient images and the takeoff taken at the "600" zoom from Titusville.
