That is some really expensive ice cream! But kudos to SpaceX. Still a few kinks to work out in satellite deployment, but it looks like they are well on their way.

Frank, this one went like clock work. Dragon approached to 30 meters from the station, NASA said "Go," they moved to 10 meters and the station crew reached out and grabbed it -- ahead of schedule. The danger now is complacency.

It is great to see an alternate to the Russian launches for servicing the space station. Perhaps this spurs a competition for space station services and may lead to new entrants? MP Divakar

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
