I'm looking forward to when Boston dynamics has colonised and begun strip mining the moon hopefully by then Trump's space force will still be around

There's a few sites like that always show up in my facebook newsfeed and they mostly have fucking nonsense in them, then I get sites like phys.org which is good shit. The dopey sites tend to have names like popularmechanics, stuff to make them sound legit when they're just posting shite

Well the first line of the article is a link to the research paper the article is based on.
And the journal it’s printed in is a predatory journal* that has wholesale copied articles from other legit journals. Just because there’s a link to an article, doesn’t mean it has gone through the same scrutiny as a more reputable journal. And to make things a little more eyebrow-raising; one of the authors has had papers previously retracted for being bullshit. He has quite the home page though!

*Journals that have very little editorial oversight, skip peer review and generally prey on unsuspecting or desperate authors and/or chancers.

Popular Mechanics has (had?) a good reputation. It's around a long time.

The Starship Orbital test flight will originate from Starbase, TX. The Booster stage will separate approximately 170 seconds into flight. The Booster will then perform a partial return and land in the Gulf of Mexico approximately 20 miles from the shore. The Orbital Starship will continue on flying between the Florida Straits. It will achieve orbit until performing a powered, targeted landing approximately 100km (~62 miles) off the northwest coast of Kauai in a soft ocean landing.
