Data collected by OSIRIS-REx's approach to asteroid #Bennu has revealed water locked inside. The mission team aimed three instruments towards Bennu during the approach and began making these first scientific observations. Learn more: https://go.nasa.gov/2G911E9 #AGU18

Ok don't panic folks. Think about what you need to "takeout".

Do you already have your images and videos on your HDD?

Is any of the content in collections or communities something you need to save or just links to articles or pictures on the web? Are they still relevant to you and others?

Will you create an account somewhere else that could do this to you again or will you move to the decentralized federated web space where you control your existence and your content?

Do you have a way to get in contact with your contacts to let them know where you are going after G+?
And then things got worse.


 
LIVE NOW: In August, OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft caught its first view of the asteroid #Bennu. Listen from the mission team as they have discovered new science and how this new information compares to the Bennu data gathered from Earth. Watch: https://go.nasa.gov/2GiPN0e #AGU18

It's like the little girl who thought it was cruel to chop off the puppy's tail. "Couldn't they just take a little bit off at a time?"

I expect server usage to surge for takeout. But I've been thinking about that. What do I really need to takeout? Images: I have them on HDD. Posts: perhaps not time relevant anymore. Collections: possibly - depends on the content. Communities: perhaps replicate the structure manually but the old information may not be time relevant anymore. Circles: Anyone interested in staying touch will likely follow in other platforms if notified where I went. Their G+ information will cease to exist. What is really needed? Has anyone else found a legit reason for using takeout?

I agree. I went through and reposted what I thought was relevant here and on a couple other sites. Many of my posts are now obsolete and I can't see saving them. Takeout serves no purpose for me.



 
The Voyager 2 probe no longer feels the solar wind and is flying through the interstellar space between the stars. It carries a working instrument providing first-of-its-kind observations of the nature of this gateway. Mission operators still can communicate with the probe as it enters this new phase of its journey, but information – moving at the speed of light – takes about 16.5 hours to travel from the spacecraft to Earth. Here's a look at this incredible mission by the numbers: https://go.nasa.gov/2GjpeaS #AGU18

#OSCC18

Thanks everyone for a great time! See you all in the morning for the second day of OSCC18. Meanwhile, most folks know I like to promote independent artists who don't have big money behind them. So when I am not using the stream, I keep those artists playing on the IMA Radio. Here is the main stream:

Days after its launch from Florida, SpaceX’s #Dragon cargo spacecraft was successfully installed on the Earth-facing side of the International Space Station’s Harmony module at 10:36 a.m. EST. While there are now six spaceships attached at the station, the Dragon will spend about five weeks there and return to Earth in January 2019 with more than 4,000 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies.

With a reach of nearly 6 feet, InSight's robotic-arm is ready to do some lifting. In addition to capturing photographs of the terrain, the arm will be used to pick up science instruments, and gently place them on the Martian soil at Elysium Planitia.
