"virgin galactic" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Details. Meg. Hey, Melissa, a panel of outside advisers to the FDA voting today unanimously to recommend booster shots for people who got the Moderna vaccine and are at least 6 months out. Now the vote they took was specifically on the same groups who were authorized for a Pfizer booster that's people who are over 65 and those between the ages of 18 and 64 who are either at increased risk because of underlying health conditions or because of their job or institutional setting. And so there was discussion today of whether the boosters should be expanded to everybody over age 18, at least for Pfizer and Moderna and the committee really was not on board with that right now, essentially saying that the benefit risk didn't make sense for all younger, healthy people at this moment. There was some discussion from a CDC representative about whether the age should be lowered to 50 potentially. And that's something that will be an ongoing discussions. But right now, this really setting the stage for the FDA to clear this for folks who got Moderna and then next week, the CDC to talk about it and then this actually becoming available probably at the end of next week. Same process is going to take place for Johnson & Johnson tomorrow that might be a little bit more complicated because it's a different kind of vaccine in just one dose and the data look different. And interestingly now we're also going to hear from the NIH tomorrow on mixing and matching boosters, and that is a key commercial question for all of these vaccine makers as the next stage of this really as we get out of the pandemic is going to be competing to be the booster of choice. And that's when you see companies like novavax, potentially even playing a role there and moving on some of the NIH data that we saw yesterday. So this will continue to be really interesting, Moderna, though, popping on this boat. So does this open the posi? I mean, the idea of mixing and matching boosters that even another vaccine maker that's not Pfizer or Moderna could come in with the booster of choice ultimately. So the NIH data we saw so far were just for the three available vaccines, but essentially it is the first step in saying, hey, it might make sense to switch up the type of vaccine you get. And so whenever novavax becomes available or Sanofi and GSK, which also have a protein based vaccine, they could be competing in the next rounds if we have to get COVID vaccine seasonally like we do for flu. It may not be limited to just these three companies. All right, Meg, thank you, Meg Terrell, with the latest on Moderna. We've mentioned BioTech at the top. It was the smaller cap more sort of beta BioTech names that saw the biggest bid today Tim, but I'm wondering if you think this is sort of a game changer for Moderna, which actually got the biggest pop today. Yeah, and if Carter was here with this delta tone, he would have said to the penny at $300, which was an important level for this stock. And look, it's fascinating. We saw this all the way through the early stages of when we were starting to get a glimpse of who was leading the race on a vaccine and where we were getting in terms of then the follow-up, who would be the standard? What would be the number of follow-up boosters and look, I don't think we really know in terms of how the prices of these stocks are going to trade because we still don't really understand where they will be priced where the competitive landscape will be. And as we said, just mag is pointed out there's a chance you could actually have somebody come in and really be the kingmaker in terms of either who they are partnering with or where there is efficacy. So I just think that in the case of a Moderna, you have a valuation that's very, very difficult, despite a company that's proven, it's not necessary just a one trick pony, although that's what's taken them here. So I would be fading the strength of Moderna because I think there's going to be a lot of news for all of these companies and ultimately that is strength to be faded on vaccines. Yeah. Your thoughts on that? Karen was way ahead of this. I mean, I think it goes back to the fall of last year when she was pointing out that the winner here was not gonna be Pfizer in terms of the stock, but Moderna and she was spot on. I mean, it's that stock is probably going to fourfold since was Pfizer's going up percentage points. What are my thoughts? Well, when that downgrade happened, I think it was in August. Maybe September you recall, we actually talked about it on the show. I think a $115 price target in Moderna. And I think collectively, we said, no, I don't know if you see one 15, but you could definitely see three 25. Tim just pointed out we overshot that. But I think you have something to trading at now in the form of that recent low. And I actually hear what Tim is saying in terms of fading it. That's probably the right way to trade it. I think you can continue to buy strength here. I do think this stock has one more run to the upside. All right, we've got an after hours alert on virgin galactic shares are sinking after the close. Christina parts nebulas joins us now with the news driving the action, Christina. Well, virgin galactic has hit a snag with its space flight. The company announcing the beginning of its commercial space tourism service will be pushed out to the fourth quarter of 2022. Shares of virgin galactic right now are dropping about 12% virgin galactic has currently entered what they call an enhancement period, so they're testing the vehicle performance and checking the strength of materials, but one of their recent lab tests flagged a quote possible drop in strength of certain materials used to modify specific joints. Virgin galactic says they will now have to do further physical inspections. And once they finish all of those tests and inspections virgin galactic then intends to complete the testing program for VMS eve, as well as VSS unity, as well as the planned test flight with the Italian air force. And it looks like you'll have to wait a little bit longer to book that virgin galactic space flight. Oh, the disappointment on this panel Christina. You don't feel it. Thank you. Christina parts nebulas. Dan, I feel like you would sign up for a virgin flight, but I mean, this is a this is basically a delay to their core business. Who cares? Who cares? What's the Tam? I mean, listen, this is exactly what you'd want this company to do. Let's make sure that when we send these things up, that they come back with the people here. So pushing something out a quarter or two doesn't really matter when you think about this company. Listen, I know this is a very controversial stock and people think that there's other space companies that are more interested in this than ever. But wouldn't you want this sort of competition to make sure all of these people who are focused on going to space or bringing people to space or bring satellites to space are doing it in a very safe manner. So to me, you know, it seems like a bit of an overreaction. I don't own the stock. I find it to be a very interesting story. I think ten years from now, fast money or space money or whatever they call it then, there's going to be a lot of space stocks. It might be like, you know, the ED stocks now. So the idea of again pushing it out for your first 6 months who cares? All right, coming up. Former FDIC chair Sheila bear sounding the alarm. She was worried that another financial crisis could be in the cards. She'll tell us why, straight ahead,.

We're going to see literally the new scheffer rocket flare up into at very high speeds into space. And then you know we won't see this but a capsule detach and float into space and then the rocket will return to the launch pad. Virgin galactic of course uses a different method. They've got a kind high-flying airplane that flies up. You know the way you would see at an airport and the space craft the virgin galactic spacecraft attached to the rocket detaches at about forty five thousand feet and then it sort of rockets up into space from there.

Branson, Bezos, Musk: The Billionaire Space Race
"Richard branson's being outed longer than the others. Seventeen years or so since richard branson. I announced his ambitions. Two thousand four. When virgin galactic was started. I think back then the intention walls within three or four years. They be doing what they've only just done now of of taking passengers into space but for him dates back and he. He talks about this a lot. Doesn't it back to nineteen sixty nine and watching the moon landing a teenager. We choose to go to the moon and and do the other thing not because they are easy being taken outside by his dad and the pointing up at the moon and realizing there were two men up there east folks at one of those men buzz aldrin in the nineties and and talked about the idea of using plane rather than a traditional rocket as so. The idea is been fermenting for a long time lot of setbacks on the way of course. I think a lot of us wonder whether this would ever happen. He's proved he can do it. And i think that for him is why this is so emotionally significant but also practically significant in a business sense as well. Let's go through the others then we go elon. Musk of tesla. Fame with space. X.'s dragon capsule and he's the best known for his space ambitions around the world. Think just because of his global profile that he has and has had a lot of success with the commercial side of this deals with nasa of taking things up into orbital space which of course is much further than branson or some of the tourism operations are going and has talked in perhaps much greater ambition. About what could be done. He's talked about colonizing mars. Easy said he wants to go to mars. he's also said people might die. Going to mars but ambitions seemed to be much bigger and grander than just space tourism. And someone who through his life has solve the big problems as he's seen them around the world and this is one he sees that needs to be solved by the private sector. Then making up the triumvirate. Jeff bezos of amazon fame. What of his ambitions. what's his rocket. Program is interesting isn't because he there's far less publicity with with. Jeff bezos a blue origin. The company that will take him into space has been around for twenty years so longer than branson's virgin galactic but his plans all rooted much further back than that he he talks of colonizing space of building these holds where trillions of people can live something. It's thought he took from a professor. He had at princeton physicist. Who came up with his idea in the seventies so he has these grand ambitions that pass. He doesn't talk about as much as richard branson alone. Musk but which are very rooted in in history and clearly having left amazon this is now his focus on taking humans where they where they've not come

"virgin galactic" Discussed on The Vergecast
"Network to compete with team always into verizon any like. Can you just goose that along a little bit. Nothing's happening here. Somebody help charlie that. It's this is like this underlying we don't think about five g. Networks as having suppliers and vendors usually live at this high consumer level like we think about eighteen. Thousand verizon is providers of five g. to us the consumer they've gotta go out and get nokia and siemens and whoever else like put stuff on their towers right in right now. All that stuff is effectively proprietary. Like you buy into one system ran is the open. Anybo- any supplier commute under a lot of this is aimed at increasing competition. So we're not relying on chinese companies like wal way so even in here all the way down to the earliest thing. I can think of on the verge cast jones like i got an idea about iran. Put that in there just zubaydah have. That idea is taboo. have that idea. That's definitely absolutely here. This entire section by the way is under a previous section that instructs to protect vibrancy of american markets were wine and spirits. The secretary of treasury shall not after one hundred twenty days and submitted a report to the chair of the white house assessing the current market structure and conditions of competition under wine and spirits. Well he's all over the place. Yeah he's like too many too much consolidation in the spirits market. Diario get in here. I like the idea that there's a there's an alliance between like diaz geo at version meat packers the point we killing us. Joe give me call if you ever want to do it. Vodka brand of ideas for it. So i feel like we has talk about branson version galactic. First flight he was on. It made a big deal. It was really weird. Yeah it was weird they. They made a fake video of him riding his bike to the spaceport which turned out he just. He had written his bike the day before they faked it. I'm all for bike riding. But i mean i don't know how i don't know how that connects to anything. The thing that's interesting to me is like amazon and like blue origin they had to like be snippy about this too technically space. You know great really interesting to me about this like the bicycle video. We're very used to spacex right. Probably everybody listening to show is watched. Uh spacex livestream spacex basically apes nasa right and assez national. Tv is not like action packed. Right right nasa. Like their streams. Are you know their government agency trying to educate the public and inspire the youth to do math. Or whatever and they're very dry. Direct spacex alonzo engineer. That's an engineering company famously. Tesla doesn't do any marketing. Like say sex. Looks a lot like i said. I think as a company. Their engineering focused. Most spacex launches are like after the launch. There's a long period of just like watching a rocket float into the sky while dot bar graph at the bottom moves along and then like excited people. Tell you about space. Engineering and people are captivated minutes. I'll make sense. Our science team has very conflicted feelings about the space. X livestream is right. Because they're not real like they april thing that looks official the a the government regulated thing. But they're a private company. That looks like it. But they're still pretty good and people washington who like them branson is literally like a music video executive that's who he is. He's an entertainment executive. The virgin galactic stream was like an infomercial like no aping nasa whatsoever. There was another stream. That was up from just like a youtube channel and they were just like yeah. Watch us if you don't want the fluff because interspersed with the regular virgin. Galactic stuff was like you know like at the olympics that you like human interest pieces on like athletes. Yeah it was that but for branson and then like what about one about his mom like just all this stuff. Hyping it up and i was like watching. This is like sci fi movie where the rocket explodes me. Made me anxious. As i was watching. If you say something is great this much like something movies man. It all went off. It was fine as space gets more privatized in commercial and then we've all kind of lulled into complacency by spacex being this engineering company. That kind of looks like nasa their commercial. That plane landed in. They're like here's a song. Richard branson commission from college and then we just like listen to a song. For what like. Why is this happening. And i i think we were. We should all get ready like blue origin. Does it and virginia lactic. Does it other companies start to do commercial space. They're going to do commercial space. And it's gonna look like branded content. Not like something went wrong in that flight will you. I would not have trusted that video to be an accurate representation of the flight correct. Yeah cycling on the same over and over again until they figured out what to say. I mean the thing about the stuff is the these huge celebrations And if you actually step back and think about what are we celebrating. We are celebrating the fact that private companies have done something that we did as like society and a government seventy years ago sixty years ago. Whatever like that's that's what we're celebrating. And i know that's productive and it's more than that but i don't know it is a little weird like the joke that billionaire's space. They should stay there. I don't want anybody to die. Obviously but i do. I do wanna know like other than a pr opportunity. Like tell better story of what the purpose of your you know. Space rockets are the bransons. It's just a pr opportunity right. Like he's he was evaluating the product but he came off his rocket right in there. Like what was it and he was like that was amazing dream of it's such since i was a little boy. What a great opportunity to evaluate the customer experience..

"virgin galactic" Discussed on The Future Calendar
"Anything like that but yeah it's going to I I company in that industry so exciting stuff there virgin galactic be the end look out. I'll be updated future calendar that I live with with Richard Branson very exciting and look for when it goes public <hes> probably sometime in the next month or so they really give a timeline but very very shortly once that <hes> once the regular <hes> the transaction takes place so yeah uh Virgin Galactic going public checkout all right so that was our big news for the day but I just wanted to add a quick <hes> addendum to the Ba- the back <hes> the backside of this episode <hes> a Knicks pick for you just one. I'm GonNa talk about the Garmin forerunner to forty five music so it's a smart much. I've been using now for about a month really been loving. It really really really loving. I'm someone I've used an apple watch before I had the series too so that was the one where they I added G._P._S. not but not in any like they've come out with the three and the four since then but I haven't used those basically I wanted just trim. This down actually recorded A. A longer version chess talking about this this watch and it ended up being like twenty or twenty five minutes long and it was like just way too much so I kinda want summarize why you probably heard about the Apple Watch I want to summarize why this is in my opinion superior to that and there's other little things I'm happy if you WanNa like you know e mail text me whatever explain the differences if you're actually considering it but there's kind of like three main reasons I think that really differentiate the this Garmin from an Apple Watch and you're probably pretty familiar with an Apple Watch so I'm just GonNa Kinda Walk from from there air to where I think this is better so kind of the first reason why this is better I think than an Apple Watch he's overall usability which is split into in my opinion battery life and how lightweight and comfortable it is so the battery life is is is awesome. You know we're talking about like five to seven days depending on your settings and I've actually gotten that in the real world if you use the G._p._S. Allot for tracking runs things like that. You're going to crush the battery but that's to be expected but just use it like yours. Normally you know tracking your heart rate your steps all doc your calories all that kind of stuff heart rate. You're actually going to get that kind of battery life and then it charges super fast like I really charging is not an issue with this and the biggest differentiator of the Apple Watch is that you can use it as asleep tracker so you can just leave it on overnight tonight. It's comfortable enough that you're not doesn't feel like you're having in your wrist and you can't fall asleep because it's distracting for me. It's really comfortable. It's a rubber band. I know some people that sweats for them but for me. It's comfortable it's lightweight and then I really don't have to worry about taking it it off and being waterproof you can wear in the shower can wash your hands in the rain. You can swim it. Just it can be really a part of your your body. Where that's the perfect way to get stats be a real true fitness tracker so I think overall the battery real life in lightweight and comfort contributes to just being a usable device all the time versus the Apple Watch you gotta charge that thing like basically every night I found it to be an ineffective sleep tracker because you've got to put it on the chargers so it'll be fine when you wake up in the morning and it's fine during the day and track your workouts workouts but you can't use his asleep tracker really because you'll you'll wake up with no battery and then when you're gonNA use it winning in a charge it so I thought that was a huge differentiator and then I just thought it was a little less comfortable like I always notice the Apple? Watch on my wrist. I versus the garment kind of like I forget about it a lot like I really just forget. It's there and that's like pretty high. Praise for something on your wrist right so for me. That was kind of like one of the first differences between the garment. The Apple Watch to is the stats so this has every I mean God. It's just like it's such an advanced fitness. Tracker has every stat when you gonNA run all your splits in your heart rate and how hard it is your load like how hard versus your other runs. You're you're tracking like how much hardier working what's your recovery time. They've adjusted recovery time how much time you spend each heart rate zone and it gives you kind of that breakdown. It just like I find the if you really into stats and tracking all the stuff in your sleep when you were in Remm in deep sleep light sleep it tracks so many facets of so many different parts of your day you can really Kinda like break down and analyze the stuff and it's really you know there's all these graphs and charts. It's real easy to consume. They have an APP called Garmin connect so you're not looking at on the watch screen. It's all all in the phone pretty nice APP not too many notes on that. I think it works really well yeah and it can it really just keeps track of your resting heart rate how that's changing like you're I mean just so many once again. This is kind of some of the Apple Watch br I find I found it to be kind of that next level of like really digging into your like for my in my case. I'm doing a lot with running so I mean is really kind of like the ultimate runners watching that way so maybe the Apple Watch is kind of just more for just general people doing general activities. If you really want to get in and look at the stats I found that to be just like a a world of of staffs to pull from you can really look around and and really dig deep there and then kind of the last thing that really yeah I mean this is the biggest differentiator between the apple. Watch was offline spotify so this is a big one for me because when I bought the Apple Watch I had this vision of like oh great I can leave. My phone at home gets all sweaty clutch. You're worried you're going. Drop it and what's Great. Okay you can load some music on the watch and then you'll have your watch and like your air pods or some other headphones or ear buds and that's it. You don't have to worry about carrying anything you load like one or two playlists. I understand is not a lot of storage on the watch but then that's all you bring and then it has G._p._S. contract all your your stats running perfect right like closed system closed loop and then you buy the Apple Watch and just because it's apple and the way they are with their ecosystem. You can only use apple music right and I don't use apple music spotify spotify because it's better and a lot of people spotify and of course they could probably offer at technologically but they don't because they're apple and they're like screw. You use our music service so what's great about the garment is that they have spotify so you can upload just a playlist to it so I just have this like hard rock playlists that listen to and it will automatically update which is super cool and yet you just kind of put that on and it's exactly what I envisioned you holds I think I like seventy five eighty songs and it's just that pairs seamlessly to my air pods and that's all I bring on a run so just have the the watch and in the in the air pods and then there's nothing to hold issue on your run so does all the same tracking there's G._p._S. in the watch and you're often running so <hes> that's awesome and to me that was like kind of one of the reasons I got the Apple Watch and then just apple having their walled garden shut that down so <hes> that's a quick overview. There are other little things 'cause I like. It's not a touch screen <hes> which I find actually enjoyable because when you get like water or sweat on Apple Watch it you can't release as a touchscreen anyway so to me. It's like using buttons is is fine to navigate you. Learn the menus pretty quickly on the watch. <hes> you know I find it to be kind of a minor thing but I I like it. <hes> there are plenty of other things I could talk about. Oh the price so the the one with music is three hundred fifty dollars. The one without music is three hundred <hes> this compares the Apple Watch. I think goes for four hundred so you kind of same ballpark made a little bit cheaper and I think that you're getting a better device in a better package for less money so to me. It's it's it's superior especially for running. I think it's like the ultimate running watch like an and then do your spacek vacations. It's almost more of like a fitness device that has smartwatch features right so it'll it'll show your tax your emails your other notifications like it'll pair with your phone but it's not like an Apple Watch ostriches clearly kind of like a smartwatch that can do some fitness stuff right. I hope you understand the differences there so that's where like all that other fitness tracking stuff out the stats I was talking about it really feels natural with the Garmin whereas apple. It's like you can tell it's kind of like made for just like the general public like anyone who's just trying to kind of track their steps track their calories kind of like you know maybe put a workout in there something like that so it just feels different and that's kind of my my high level observation between the two so I highly highly recommend especially for someone one who runs a lot really serious about working out <hes> two thumbs up really really happy with it. Don't have many cons <hes> but of course if you're actually considering buying it happy to discuss further but definitely two thumbs up gold star <hes> Knicks Peck Doc. That's the Garmin to forty five music three hundred fifty dollars Amazon R._e._I.. You know the garment website get it tons of places so that's Today's show version gladys going public. You got a knicks pick new smart watch the Garmin forerunner to forty five music yeah and oh a quick shout out. If you've been downloading.

But essentially you removed gravity your muscles start wasting away. There was the studies have been lots of studies in humans because now humans have lived on the space station for more than a year or two time. They did a study in rats so within ten days the rats lost a third of their muscle mass. And that includes heart muscle now. None of this would be a problem if you're gonna stay in space river, so if you got to space and live on the space station, spend the rest of your life on the space station floating around being this idea, this extraterrestrial human that absolutely fine. Trouble is when you come back to earth, and you've lost that muscle, but sickly something damaging heart muscle.

Yo also comes university is a geneticist and he's got a special interest in food haven't. We'll we'll we'll come to all of you just before we come to the questions. I'm very interested to ask each of you since we have such a diverse range of skills and abilities. Here. What is the one thing? Either breakthrough development or discovery that you in your respective fields. Or otherwise would really like to see happen in two thousand nineteen Richard. Let's start with you. From a space perspective. I would really like to see virgin galactic succeed in flying. Space tourists or maybe even Richard Branson into space properly just before Christmas, they manage fifty miles high in the test spacecraft. I hope they can keep doing this successfully. And so the whole space tourism market starts to take off this is because I I have a bet with a friend that virgin galactic argon, do it. He was convinced they never gonna do this. But also the more companies that get involved in space, particularly more innovative space plane type technologies than that's going to really drive down the cost of access to space. Maybe one day. We can all go into space. I used to think I really wanted to go into space. But then since I met you, and I've fought about it a lot more. I've lost inclination spaces horrible, really really really horrible favorite quotes is from Star Trek from McCoy in Star Trek space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence. Llama? Can put it better myself Francesca, you work on things in spatial astrophysicists. So what would you like to see him in the year had? Well, if we're wishing things I would like to see one of the many experiments that are searching for the identity of dark matter come up with a positive signal. And then we might finally find out what it is. Why does that she matter that we understand this? If if we've existed we have no problem existing in in our cosmic neighborhood, we need to know what this Mr. stuff is all about well firstly because I really want to know. And I think a lot of other people feel the same way. There's just it's real drive to uncover how the universe works and second lay on a more practical level anything we can do that helps us uncover the laws of physics. I think he's actually very likely to have technological applications that at this stage, we really need remove to brains and dreaming. Turbo sager. No, Anna, Nora anything. You would like to see soften twenty nineteen right? Yeah. Segue. So I'd like to see scientists use or harness social media and order to better identify at lessons who are at risk for mental health problems. Why is this issue spotting them? It's an issues putting them because we don't really know what makes at lessons vulnerable to mental health disorders, and especially we don't know what the critical at risk behaviors are. And we haven't really been looking at social media in order to answer that question. I think that that is a really really new thing that we can harness, and it will give us lots of new information a radical change in the way that we live. Our lives isn't on Giles. I'd like to see us better model the human brain in the dish. And the reason why because I study obesity study obesity, as we'll talk about perhaps later is a brain disease involves genes within the brain. And obviously if we're trying to study it at the moment, we using models. We can't legally get into a human brain while they're still alive obvious for these reasons. And so we need. Technology in order to ask the questions in a human context, an Oscar Petrie dish white wants to get fat. Exactly, exactly. We get. We get an analog coming in and saying, why do you think you're getting fat Joe's, thank you? While you you sort of think about all of that. We have a little guest who game which we're gonna play right across the program for everyone at home to listen to what we do is give you a sequence of clues as the hour unfolds. And you have to try and work out. What this thing is tell you for Fritz animal, the first clue is this is what it sounds like..
"virgin galactic" Discussed on Programming Throwdown
"I think it's pretty cool. I have to admit I am not a web developer even a web back end developer. So I can't say for sure I haven't played around with this yet. But I want to. So I can't say for sure if it's a good idea for technical perspective, but just from like product, and Jerry or production, engineering perspec-. Tive? It seems like like really nice reduces a lot of the friction. I mean, I don't really need to maintain a file system. When all my program is doing is writing logs and talking to a database, right? So this is pretty cool. This article talks all about how that works on talk about recurring theme people who are listening to the backlog of our episodes often right in and talk about that we made new predictions. I guess but things we've said in the past, and I know one of the things we've talked about what is SpaceX Bigalow space, whether or not I guess virgin galactic is it. Yeah. On these kinds of things which that article virgin galactic to which is the spaceship to forget the exact nomenclature, but they recently reached by what some people define as the edge of space. They reached a space, and this is the Richard Branson backed company owned company owns anyways. And they've been for a while. Trying to get to space and they're wanting to take tourists there. They're sub orbital. So they won't actually be able to orbit like SpaceX, but they recently able to get there. So people are kind of like thinking might be soon that sort of paying customers albeit very outrageously expensive tickets will actually start being able to kind of visit space seems like how much would cost. I forget I looked up at the time. Okay. Cool, but the article I actually picked that was a bonus freebie. No charge for that. One is space x recently had their twentieth launch of the year. And I this is a crazy story that there are several companies now offering or close to offering commercial access to orbital flights be able to put satellites up and soon, hopefully, it'd be able to humans back into space. I guess right now, it's mostly the the Russian. Space the rockets that are able to put people into space, and they recently had a problem. And so they've had issues and snow looks like SpaceX and other companies might be getting close and this twentieth. Launch of the year for SpaceX is is kind of kind of interesting to see how frequently rockets are lunching. Maybe I just never paid attention to it before. Maybe it's cool again. Maybe it's always been this. But I actually think should have tried to find a graph of it. But I feel like it's becoming more commonplace. And I'm excited that as my children grow up. Hopefully, they'll be able to, you know, see thriving space yet for the price of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Okay. Well. Space who's going to be the first person to say something about like the Moore's law of ticket prices to space or something? Oh, that's true. Yeah. Just getting I know it's not the same. Specifically though this twentieth lunch. Spacex was an interesting one. If you if you haven't seen it in the news, I encourage you to watch the video of it..
