Since April 2004 we have been under a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, better known as SpaceX. In 2017, yesterday in fact with the completion of the rocket re-launch live stream, the contract ran out and we can now finally talk publically about what has been going on behind the scenes all this time as we move forward into an open collaboration with SpaceX on their upcoming missions.
BURP is awesome. Now that it has grown so much we expect to be able to render missions to Mars way before 2019, there is nowhere we cannot appear to be going.
Also, when SpaceX eventually catches up with the reasearch for real actual rockets, part of the agreement is that BURP will get to be amongst the very first customers to launch its servers into space. That should make the workunits a lot lighter.
If you missed yesterday's show be sure to check out the "live" stream recording.

Yes, I already awaited this awesome news and I always wanted to see it! Probably this helped a lot to make this recycling rocket which started yesterday. ;-)
Elon Tusk, CEO of SpaceX had the following comment:
Is this a brother of EU-president Donald Tusk - or was this simply a typo? ;-)

This is just a joke but I find a bit weird to have it on the front page of the website.
