Greetings from England, amigo! 'Interesting' is certainly one way to describe it.

They just managed another Starlink launch and booster recovery (5th time of use for this one)

I agree with the topic-starter. We live in a very interesting time. But I’m already tired of the pop projects. You don't know anything about Chang'e? Jeff Bezos plans of at least? About any other companies?
Skyrora, for example?
A bunch of other serious people is now actively engaged in space. Why are only two projects discussed? There are also many interested people ...

So which of the other projects do you see as worthwhile?

A fairly large number of projects can be called worthwhile. The main thing, as for me, is that people financially, informational, and morally support precisely those projects that can be useful for public life in general. What good is it to me if someone flies to Mars? No. But when satellites are launched to help predict the behavior of nature, this can help me avoid the consequences. Or they launch satellites to deliver the Internet and other methods of satellite communication in hard-to-reach places - oh, this can help many to communicate with relatives, doctors, etc.

I am currently interested in Skyrora specifically. I think they will develop very dynamically. This is a company from Scotland.
I think in the future they will be able to offer affordable commercial satellite launches for the needs of people

What is wrong with "pop projects"?

I posted info about progress of Chang'e 5 mission in Roolite forum. Seems I know anything about Chang'e to make these posts. Making posts about most amazing discoveries in astronomy too. Just for fun.

Well, I was impressed with NASA rover perfect landing today. It was funny and it can give us new interesting data.
Is it wrong not to mention Jeff Bezos plans and Skyrora for example discussing Perseverance landing?
