    How does this video not have millions and billions of views? People can celebrate Christmas and Halloween but they can't celebrate one of the greatest and pioneering achievements of humankind.. seriously people's priorities are warped.

    So one micro meteorite hits the shade and the whole thing is ruined?

    I'll be in my grave before this thing gets off the ground.

    It's things like this that makes me wish I had Jeff Bezos money. I would not stop at any costs to make sure we get an instrument like this in space. If it fails the first time I'd bring out the check book and write another check.

    I always find time lapse videos more enjoyable with narration and not text, since text obscures site, and causes you to read, missing out on things due to a fast pace.
