Science Bitches!  

  1. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket delivered SES-10, a commercial communications satellite for SES, to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO).
    The SES-10 mission marked a historic milestone on the road to full and rapid reusability as the world’s first reflight of an orbital class rocket. Falcon 9’s first stage for the SES-10 mission previously supported the successful CRS-8 mission in April 2016.

Into the wayback machine: Back in March on Show 49, with A Play On Nerds, we discussed the weird interplay with letters to Iran and how the GOP was playing a dangerous game of chicken with the State Department. Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton penned an open letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. http://www.vox.com/2015/3/10/8182063/tom-cottons-controversial-letter-to-iran-explained  This week that information resurfaced with a little more analysis that included a breakdown of the roughly million dollars of campaign contributions he received during the week of the kerfuffle.
