SpaceX May Attempt To Intercept 'Starman'

Small Spacecraft Could Take Some Photos 'In A Few Years'

Earlier this week, we said somewhat tongue-in-cheek that Elon Musk might try to recover the Tesla Roadster that was launched aboard the first Falcon Heavy launch and put it back on the road.

Also: AIR PIX Selfie Drone, Another NIMBY City, Drone Food Delivery, 'Monumental' Drone LIDAR Map

The FAA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking to work with stakeholders on the administration of a new aeronautical knowledge test for recreational drone operators.

The plane is being offered by Jet Lease. It was acquired from Jordan which has been liquidating some of its older-model F-16s after that country bought newer models from Belgium and the Netherlands between 2008 and 2017. What is different about this sale is that these are not demilitarized airplanes to be used as status symbols for the uber-wealthy.
