Over the past three years I have been getting into watching as many rocket launches on video as I possibly can. I'd like to see one in person, but that can wait until after the pandemic. Whenever I see a launch by Blue Origin, SpaceX, Rocket Lab, Northrop Grumman, or anything NASA has contracted - I try to watch it. If you don't know we are living in an amazing age of private and corporate spacecraft and exploration - for good or for bad. Some could be seens as troubling, but I think it is exciting to see more than just nations going into space for more than just satellites.
I have three main channels I watch for launches, and other stuff I enjoy.
If you also watch launches or just are intered in space, call out in teh comments. What has been teh mission or launch that cpatured your imagination. I woudl have a hard time just point out one. In teh last few weeks Jpan returned material from a Asteroid Ryugu, China returned lunar rocks and dist from the damn moon, and SpaceX *nearly* landed their "building sized" rocket to and upright landing after it skydiving to the ground not under power! Three amazing scientific events that happened within the last few weeks. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how close India came to landing its Chandrayaan-2 rover on the moon last September 2019.. They were SO CLOSE with a very ambitious mission! A successful soft landing would have made India the fourth country after the Soviet Union, United States and China to land on the moon. I think they will land with their next Chandrayaan-3 mission.
