    Happy Blast Off Day 4/3/21

    4...3...2...1 Blast Off!

    This Blast Off Day comes 100 years after the last one. It will be a century before it comes around again.

    Have a blast!

    Funny. It had not struck me as a countdown.

    When I say “some kind of special date” I mean Like last year’s 0202 2020, a palindrome. Readable forward or backwards. There are 366 palindromes in 10,000 years.

    Other fun dates of past times:

    12/13/14

    How many kinds of calendar days for math nerds but I’m not a math nerd so I don’t get into those I like the kindergarten level dates.

    I observed Blast Off Day by watching videos of Starship Serial Number 11
    http://www.spacex.com/launch

    At 1:00 into the flight test the narrator says, "Methane burns on the brown side."
    At 5:04 the narrator says, "Beautiful morning in Texas."
    At 5:49 the starship exploded.

    I must have missed the Rockets that existed for there to be a prior blast off day!
