Ultima Thule fly-by
Can we look forward to more partnerships in 2019 (like the Launch Pad Astronomy + Deep Astronomy + TMRO success during the UT flyby)? BTW… I feel this collaboration/partnership was absolutely great, innovative and a tasty recipe for good things!
During the flyby stream, what were the high-points or low-points from your (Christian or Lisa or Tony) perspective? (I can sense one low-point, and a zillion high-points).
The roving live parts by Chris were good; a key differentiator as opposed to other reporting sources. Any plans for (or opportunities for) TMRO roving live reporting in 2019?
Is there a way to locate a full list of the guests during the live stream? That would be a good archive record.
How can I best stay conscious for the next 24-hour streaming extravaganza? Caffeine…? tape eyelids open…? electric shocks…?
Why do some seemingly professional media outlets still refer to Chang’e-4 as landing on the “dark” side of the moon? Don’t they know that they are contributing (OK, just a small bit, but still) to the general dumbing-down of science? Am I too picky?
The lander-to-orbiter communication path is interesting. Any good discussion possibilities on that?
I wonder if TMRO could locate a Chinese space colleague for an interview. Hmmm…
Speaking of moon landings… what other moon-landings are specifically planned for 2019? eg: SpaceIL, and others?
Can TMRO dig up some tidbits about:
- The emerging 2019 space plans (ie: launches) planned by Brazil, UAE and Iran? That would be a good segment.
- Is TMRO aware of any firm 2019 plans by any new small-sat launcher?
