A trench warfare stalemate continues in eastern #Ukraine, and amidst the violence and death, families go about their lives, some with children who've never known peace. As they try to live, "you can hear the constant pulse of shelling" - @nolanwpeterson @CoffeeOrDieMag #Donbass

Being reminded by @willripleyCNN that I covered #Skylab’s re entry back in 1979. I was VERY young...

After Perth, we have Stanley and Bridport in Tasmania, at 0243 UTC, and five minutes later Collingwood and Wellington in New Zealand. Having said that, we're getting to the end of the entry window and it's more likely that it's down by now.

As #indiacovid rages, Dolly Arjun, a physician's assistant in the US, has set up a telehealth service for the lowest Indian caste - the #Dalit (or "untouchables") and others without health access. Now, she treats #COVID19 patients in the US, and helps dozens a day in India.

By demanding that any federal standards on voting rights proceed only on bipartisan basis, Manchin enables a completely partisan GOP offensive in red states. Has he explained how allowing Senate Rs to protect those hyper-partisan state actions somehow advances “bipartisanship”?
In the name of promoting "bipartisanship," @Sen_JoeManchin & @SenatorSinema so far are allowing Senate Rs to protect efforts to tilt the voting rules toward the GOP that are passing on entirely party-line votes in state after state: GA, IA, MT, FL, maybe soon TX.

A reminder of the kind of debris that slammed into the ground in the Ivory Coast along a ~ 100 km path the last time a CZ-5B rocket stage reentered. One of these pipes ended up in the roof of someone's house; another reportedly wrecked a "cheese making machine".
Reports of a 12-m-long object crashing into the village of Mahounou in Cote d'Ivoire. It's directly on the CZ-5B reentry track, 2100 km downrange from the Space-Track reentry location. Possible that part of the stage could have sliced through the atmo that far (photo: Aminata24)

As the world awaits the #chinarocket reentry, Astronomer Jonathan McDowell @planet4589 says it didn’t need to happen: “Rocket designers go to great lengths to avoid (uncontrolled re-entry) ... China for some reason decided not to bother with all that..."

The EU SST prediction is narrow enough that we can start to talk about location now! In particular, none of the orbits within the predicted window cross the northwestern US or the mid Atlantic seaboard.
