From Dr. Jim Green, NASA’s director of planetary science, FYI. Please share this opportunity notice with anyone interested…
“Our solar system is a wondrous place with a single star, our Sun, and everything that orbits around it: planets, moons, asteroids and comets. What do we know about this beautiful solar system we call home? It’s part of an even larger cosmos, with billions of other solar systems.
I’m excited to tell you about a new podcast series. It’s called NASA’s Gravity Assist. Please join me as I talk with some of the greatest planetary scientists of our time. We’ll discuss and explore what’s in our solar system, its origin and its evolution.”

Longhaul's Take on the Pioneer Debate
I started this one two weeks ago, but then got stalled out before I could finish adding video to it. Sorry for the delay in getting this out, but this is about my personal take on the Consolidated Outland’s Pioneer construction ship. It is not a popular opinion. But take a look and decide for yourself if my point is valid.
PS: Going to be attempting to learn Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe Audition December 20-January 3 (my school’s break time) and would like suggestions on books to learn from. Please comment below.
PSS: Still waiting on both a specialist with an opening in schedule and Medicaid to sign off on knee surgery. Prayers absolutely welcome and thank you for your support.
PSSS: I… Nevermind… I forgot.

Not Your Average Salt Dough
There are many salt-dough recipes online, however a preschool in Cortez, Colorado, Country Kids Playhouse, recently came across this recipe through Kaplan that deserves a close look. We used it at the 2017 Bear Citizen to make permanent footprints (and handprints for some) and it is a very flexible, soft, high detail clay that can be used for all kinds of fun, drying slowly as a large dough ball, quickly when flattened.
1 c Flour
2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/3 c Salt
1 Tbsp Oil
Mix together thoroughly before slowly adding 1 c Water until the consistency you want. We tried adding it all at once and ended up with a soupy mess. If this happens to you, add more flour until the consistency gets back to clay. To make it “moon gray”, you can either use cake decorating black until the color you want or mix together single drops of red and blue for a light purple, then yellow until gray. You can find several other alternative ways to get gray online.
Most of all, have fun with this. It can be put into the fridge for later use or made fresh every time. Get everyone involved and take that “one small step” towards more and more family time together, learning about the future of space exploration.
"Darn you, Red Baron!"
So they have come out with an amazing amount of update regarding ALL of the ships with the new ship matrix, basically showing all of the toolboxes they have been working with to make 3.0. That’s all great, but they made BIG changes to ships that need addressed in the podcast for Exploration I did just a month ago, so here’s a redo of that based on the new information.
For those who managed to get a Pioneer, congratulations. Drop your business card off on your way out. ISHIX is still an exploration company, just without the Pioneer.
