The Oscars results, Elon Musk’s busy week, and space news

In entertainment news this week we recap the Oscars.  Steve and Sean got many predictions correct but there were plenty of big surprises too.  Steve also discusses why he is not a fan of Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey. In our tech news we discuss Elon musk tweeting out to delete Facebook and how he is recruiting drop-outs to work for him at Tesla. Tesla also hits the news this week when they deleted upgrades to a car after it was sold to a new owner. In space talk, SpaceX is considering separating Starlink and making Starlink a publicly traded company.  There was a super massive galaxy that just went dark and Voyager 2 comes back online after some technical difficulties.
