This wildfire in Oregon is so big and hot that it generates its own weather. I'm familiar with this as a feature of large wildfires (and also volcanoes) but I just discovered that it has its own name: pyrocumulus clouds. :D
Blue Origin made its successful flight. \o/ Remember that replicability matters in science -- other people have to accomplish the same thing for it to count. Virgin Galactic used slightly different equipment, but these are both private ventures into space, and that's important.
