    Thanks I fixed the link in my original post, and figured out why it didn't work even though it looks like it should.

    Your link also doesn't work for the same reason as my first link didn't. Try to click the quoted link above and your original post link (as a reader not an editor). :)

    It's not the text it's the embedded link inside that text - you have to edit it to match the text it's bound to, or break the link with the link breaker icon (when selecting the whole URL text).

    This is what the link embedded in the URL looks like, and why it wasn't working:
    Code:
    http://www.stsci.edu/jwst/%20JWST%20for%20Scientists
    
    So the URL was correct, but for some reason the site bound in a forced link that isn't valid. I had to break the link and now my URL in my original post works, like this:

    http://www.stsci.edu/jwst/

    That's why it's always a good idea to try all the links in a post before walking off to do other things. ;)

    Another successful test :)

    SpaceX Explodes A Rocket To Show That It's Safe
    Jan 19, 2020
    Scott Manley
    SpaceX's In Flight Abort Test was a long awaited demonstration of the launch escape system which would carry crew to safety in the event of a failure. The test resulted in a simulated rocket failure around 85 seconds into flight, then saw the Crew Dragon capsule escape the booster under its own power and land safely in the ocean. The Booster wasn't so luck and tore itself apart in a fireball, with the second stage falling 40km and crashing into the Ocean at the speed of sound, making a huge explosion. Thousands of rocket fans turned out to witness this, and document the event with special camera gear, however many missed the explosion as it was obscured by clouds from many ground locations.

    Record breaking astronaut's arrive back on Earth, start @ 01:33:30

    Astronauts Christina Koch, Luca Parmitano and Cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov Return Home from Space
    Started streaming 67 minutes ago
    NASA
    Watch three space travelers including record-setting astronaut Christina Koch return home from the International Space Station! Christina Koch will wrap up a 328-day extended mission on her first spaceflight, having spent more time in space on a single mission than any other woman. Koch, along with station Commander Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency), and Soyuz commander Alexander Skvortsov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos will depart the station in a Soyuz spacecraft that will make a parachute-assisted landing at 4:12 a.m. EST southeast of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. Koch's extended mission will provide researchers the opportunity to observe effects of long-duration spaceflight on a woman, as we prepare for Artemis missions to the Moon and human exploration of Mars.

    Lots of historical info, technical video, photos, and interviews from 2008, and the information is from the 40's forward through the then current time, hosted by Neil Armstrong - with memorable period music:
