5DNEWS: Some SpaceX & Lord of the Rings happenings…..

*

Some exciting news dropped a day or so ago with the first release of an image from the Amazon Prime produced Lord of the Rings TV series as well as confirmation of the series premiere date.

To say that this is something of a highly anticipated series would be something understatement, though if you want a flavour of the thoughts, debate, theories and of course (because it is the internet, right?), then have a look on the online socials if you dare to gauge the seismic level of interest the image caused. All I will say is that it looks beautiful.
The excitement and debate surrounding the image almost (but not quite) masked the news that filming of the first series was completed a few days ago and will officially drop on Amazon on 22nd September 2022 with each subsequent episode appearing each week onwards.

The series reportedly is set thousands of years before the stories of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings in Middle-Earth’s Second Age. The cast includes Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Nazanin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Charles Edwards, Trystan Gravelle, Sir Lenny Henry, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Lloyd Owen, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Leon Wadham, Benjamin Walker, Daniel Weyman and Sara Zwangobani.

I’ll just leave you with three words that might just reconsider the first sentence of this paragraph in terms of the time-frame………………………Trees of Valinor

Starship pictures shared by Elon Musk

*

You know me, I just love my space stuff!
Elon Musk recently tweeted a number of images showing engines being fitted to a certain Super Heavy Booster.

*

”I’m thinking we can squeeze another Raptor in there, boys!”

*

After a series of high-altitude test flights (some successful, some, erm, a little less so) SpaceX will soon be launching its Starship craft into orbit for the advanced test slight yet. Apparently there have to be a a whole heap of further tests (it’s rocket science, right?) before it’s all safe to launch and all that – sounds like good thinking to me.

*

The next next test expects to see the Super Heavy Booster sometime this month carrying Starship into orbit which will then detach and land back on earth as part of the company’s drive to re-use its booster equipment. Starship itself will return to earth once having completed its orbit tests.
