I made a new meme. Terrible quality, but, hey, it’s the internet.

Every couple years, in pairings 10 months apart, Jupiter and Venus hang out near one another in the night sky. For some reason they appear extremely close this year— about half the diameter of a full moon. The last Venus-Jupiter conjunction that was this close was in 2000. It’s a big enough deal in the astronomical community that it’s referred to as an “event”. Anyway, I took this with a long shutter at 4:50am this morning, about 45 minutes before sunrise. It was really awesome. PLANETS! You can just look up and see part of our solar system. Tonight they’ll be even a little closer. Venus is the brighter of the two.  (at Lake Coeur d’Alene)

These are real and we grew them miraculously by covering a handful of seeds in the dirt a few months ago, proving the haters (deer, rabbits, chipmunks, evil lawn villains) WRONG, BABY!

"What I found from working with Elon is that he starts by defining a goal and he puts a lot of effort into understanding what that goal is and why it is a good and valid goal.  His goal, as I see it, has not changed from the day he first called me in August of 2001.  I still hear it in his speeches.  His goal was to make mankind a multi planetary species and to do that he had to first solve the transportation problem."
