If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

They never gave it an afterthought.

You guys hear about this shit? Other news/science sites are saying it's a young neutron star, though (spoiler alert - not aliens). Still...could be aliens.

I'm sure the message translates into "we can't wait to probe the shit holes of your most unemployable hillbillies"

Because they're searching for Heaven and the Aliens know it's tougher to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich guy to get into Heaven

Because aliens are big fans of the book of Matthew?

Space X Falcon 9 delivered satellite, SES-9, into orbit then attempted to land on a robot ship. Landing was sub-optimal.

Why would they try a ship instead of the middle of a desert?

Not sure. Maybe safety issues. They were almost certain this one was going to be a crash & burn landing.

SpaceX has ample reasons to keep trying to perfect this landing-at-sea technique, despite the immense technical difficulties of trying to slow a rocket traveling roughly 5,000 mph and land it on a bobbing platform. Foremost among them: Spacecraft returning from lunar orbit, Mars, and other deep reaches of the solar system fly at much higher speeds than those in low-earth orbit, such as NASA's space shuttle.

Landing on ship at sea offers a greater safety margin, especially as SpaceX ventures farther into space, said Scott Pace, director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University. “If you are coming back at higher speed, a small error can mean a large miss distance,” he said. “For safety purposes, you have a wider area to work with with a drone ship.”
