Space stuff (NASA, UKSA, CSA, ESA, etc)

the plucky flying vehicle had an accident on its last flight and broke one of its blades. It will not fly anymore.
My nephew works for Intuitive Machines and they have a payload launching this week (3 day launch window) with NASA’s commercial Lunar Payload services to place a lander on the South Pole of the Moon. He’s super excited about this project.
NASA science is set to land on the Moon aboard Odysseus, Intuitive Machines’ uncrewed autonomous lander. Touchdown is targeted for 5:30 p.m. EST (2230 UTC) Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024. The NASA payloads aboard the lander aim to help us learn more about terrain and communications near the lunar South Pole.

Live coverage starts at 3pm EST.
This is an interesting article on propellantless propulsion. They were able to generate enough force to reach escape velocity.

I'm interested too but there is not a lot of peer review or replication of what they are claiming. I genuinely hope they are onto something.
I normally don't pay much attention to the sub-orbital tourist launches, but this story is pretty cool:

Hours after his historic first trip to space, 90-year-old Ed Dwight sat among three retired Black NASA astronauts who thanked him for forging a path for them to go into orbit and called his voyage aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard NS-25 spacecraft "justice."

More than six decades after President John F. Kennedy tapped him to be the nation's first Black astronaut candidate to the elite Aerospace Research Pilot School -- the Air Force program from which NASA astronauts were chosen -- Dwight finally accomplished on Sunday what he was denied all those years ago.

When he returned to Earth as the oldest person ever to travel to space, he was greeted and applauded by retired NASA astronauts and Space Shuttle veterans Leland Melvin, Charles Bolden and Bernard Harris who told him their achievements were only made possible by standing on his shoulders. (ABCNews)
