Preparing to view a friend blast into space

After blogging daily for over a month, I'm taking a deserved break.

I'm going to travel from Italy to USA to view the launch of my astronaut friend Samantha Cristoforetti at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon capsule of her Crew-4 flight to the International Space Station will blast into space no earlier than April 23, 2022.

There will be so many things to see, stuff to do, and excitement I'm unlikely to post much. But I'll try to share some photos and updates to my Mastodon profile.
