I Just Can’t Enjoy Space Anymore


Last night I realized that I can’t really enjoy space, rocketry, and all that much anymore. At least, not right now. Over the past year and a half, I’ve begun to notice that things are just terrible in that scene, and they shouldn’t be, and it’s really started to take its toll on me. I’ve …

Finishing Off The Year: A Love / Hate Relationship With Space

It’s the evening of December 21st, 2017 as I type this. We have effectively 9 days left of 2018, and I still have quite a bit to write about before the year is out. I’ve mentioned before about the massive backlog of things I’ve been wanting to cover. Old subjects that are lost, things that …

What I Mean When Discuss The “Cult Of SpaceX”

Here we go, the beginning of the articles I’ve been dreading writing for probably a year now. These are things I feel need to be said and no, I don’t think I’m wrong in what I say – opinions can neither be right nor wrong, after all, but I do feel the concept presented – …

It’s Been A Very Busy Month For Space Related Subjects – An Update

I feel like this month has been far more active on the Space subject than previous months for me – that is, on the end of launches and active flights. I’m actually overdue on mentioning a few other launches since they all occurred around the same time as the launches that I have covered – …

How Terrible Fans Ruined Space For Me

Ever since I was a child, I absolute adored space, both the idea of the place, the planets, moons, stars, and other things out there, and the exploration of it – rockets, missiles, men on the Moon, I couldn’t get enough of it! I’ve been learning what I can about these subjects for literally as …

We Have Burnout – Hostility In The Space And Rocketry Online Community

Cutting straight to the point, I’m somewhat burnt out right now – namely, with regards to SpaceX, space subjects in general, and a few other things. Reading comment after comment on the SpaceX front has certainly been a chore, having to see them mentioned in every single space related subject ever is itself quite annoying, …

The Eclipse – A Short Summary Of My Experience

I was fortunate enough to be able to experience a majority of the solar eclipse yesterday with only one issue – clouds. Yes, as is typical for this area, the time I need the skies clear it goes from mostly clear to storms rolling by, all while the eclipse was happening! Just my luck, right? …

Here’s Some Random Rocket Launches – Have A Great 4th Of July!

It’s the 4th of July tomorrow and, being quite honest, I had nothing quite planned to write today or tomorrow. However, to keep up with the spirit of Xadara, my love of space, and in a classic “Happy Birthday America” bit of patriotism, I’ve decided to just flood you with some random rocket launches in …
