Voyager 1 passes 17 billion miles today. The farthest man made object from the earth today and it's transmitters are still working after 43 years.

I can't even get the stuff I built last week to work right.

    @SortOfTested I think nowadays more of their work is just distributing the US's aerospace budget between the most capable private corps.

    I mean, we did a ton of work and planning and simulation, but manufacturing, totally.

    That's the book of Galadriel 😋

    Mine begins, "So there I was, just minding my own business when YHWH (he just went by El back then), he just goes and creates everything! It was blissfully quiet and low key before that. For about 10^-43 seconds there was such a ruckus, then everything calmed down. Eventually some meshugeneh putz who was angry his entourage made a cow statue wrote down something ridiculous like 2500 years, but it was a long time before that happened, let me tell you."
