What Else is Happening?
🚀 Lots of Space Events
The Space Subkast is overflowing with events this week with 3 scheduled rocket launches as well as a NASA Media Event, which will highlight NASA's upcoming missions to the Moon and Mars. None of the 3 rocket launches are SpaceX-related so they won't get as much media attention; though the Expedition 59 launch should, as it'll be carrying NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch who will be one-half of the first ever all-women spacewalk.
🚘 Tesla Model Y Unveil
Elon has kept the details of this reveal close to the chest. But what we do know is that the Model Y will likely be a smaller version of the Model X, but also slightly bigger than the Model 3. It'll also cost slightly more and have slightly less range.
🏈 NFL Free Agency Begins
Free agent signings, probably some releases, and hopefully some trades. We can't wait for this Wednesday to see where some of the biggest names will go. Some of the notable free agents this year are DeMarcus Lawrence, Le'Veon Bell, and Jadeveon Clowney. Also let's not forget Super Bowl MVP, Nick Foles.
🍸 Arrested Development Season 5B (Netflix)
If you can't remember when the first part of season 5 premiered, don't worry neither did we (it was last May and it seems like forever ago). The Bluth family returns for what will likely be it's last and final season, this half season should promise to wrap up a lot of those loose ends created in the first half of the season.
🗡 Beware The Ides of March
In researching historic event, we discovered that the Ides of March wasn't originally the horrible omen day that William Shakespeare has ingrained in our pop-culture psyche. It originally signified the new year in the Roman Calendar, so party hard my friends.
🥞 IHOP Free Pancake Day
In honor of National Pancake Day, IHOP will be giving away free short stacks of their buttermilk pancakes. While the pancakes are free, a donation to the Children's Miracle Network is highly encouraged.
