MSA - Update 3

Posted 03-21-2017 at 07:45 AM by IronRain

MER-C lost*
MER-C is now officially lost. The rover, a copy of MER-A and MER-B, was supposed to perform a MCC Burn, but engineers lost contact a couple of days prior to the burn, so they were not able to send the required commands to the spacecraft. It was soon evident that reaching Mars was not an option anymore.
A full scale investigation is already underway. At this time it's believed to be faulty software, delivered by NASA.

Going to live on myself

Posted 12-05-2015 at 06:07 PM by IronRain

Hi everyone!

Last Tuesday, I received an unexpected e-mail from the housing company in my city that one of the houses that I'd bid one was now available for me. That meant that I had 6 days to think about it, and eventually decide wether I'm going to do it or not.

The rent for this house is pretty low. They have a system here specially for the younger people in the city, where the rent is low and you have some perks. I'm 22 now, and although I'm fortunate enough to...
