  1. https://spaceflightnow.com/2017/03/24/ses-10-flight-preps/ Thursday! It was Wednesday (which would have been SOOOOO awesome to have it on my birthday). It will be the first reflight of a flown booster.
  2. You can skip me again. I am extremely busy right now. I promise, I'll take my turn soon! Oh, look at the time! I need to get to the aforementioned extracurricular activity!
  3. *GASP* How did you know I just got back from Ohio? @pandoras kitten
  4. You can skip me for now. I'll be in Ohio for the next four days. The next person on the list can go.
  5. CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE! If only I wasn't going to be in Ohio for the next few days, I'd build a rocket cake.
  6. Yeah, from what I hear FTE did not to a very good job porting the game. Hopefully Blitworks will do better!
  7. Earlier this week: Yes! SpaceX is reusing a booster just two days before my birthday! A day after that: Aww, I won't be able to go watch my teammates at all-state speech! Yesterday: YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! I can go watch all-state speech! And one of the most significant rocketry achievements in history is now scheduled for my birthday! Today: *checks launch window* YES! It isn't during school!
  8. Can I use a Kraken drive? *Insert Evil Laugh Here* Since I know you are going to say no, I would like to propose a second category that includes stock exploits, such as Kraken drives and/or decoupler spamming. EDIT: Using no Kraken drives I managed to get a bit above 300KM. Proof coming tomorrow.
  9. Yes. BTW even though I bought KSP right before the DLC period ended, I've gotten so much enjoyment out of this game that I'd gladly throw another $100 at SQUAD (about 4x what I paid for KSP!) just to show my appreciation (not even for a DLC!).
  10. "Errenous Error Message" And, we have a new acronym! On a serious note, have you tested what happens if you go down that low? (Provided you don't burn up, which you probably will)
  11. Hmm. I don't think I can see the back in any of your pictures, but it might be possible to radially mount two of them on the base of a rather large booster, and then have the bottom section of the booster contain fuel for nuclear engines, which would be mounted on the boats (on decouplers if you'd like). As for heat shielding, if you can get them to LLO I think a single inflatable heat shield on the back end (for drag, not actual heat shielding) should be sufficient if the craft is empty upon landing (you could use the fuel inside it for the nukes). Oh, yeah, and you also probably need parachutes. This is somewhat similar to how I launched my Laythe-Vall SSTO's. Just for inspiration. I really need to take my turn soon, but stuff is getting in the way! (And today was the last day of Spring Break. GRR.) If the boats do not get there soon enough and you are feeling adventurous, you can (quicksave first) take one of the SSTO's and attempt a water landing near the plane.
  12. That telemetry readout screen looks suspiciously like a low-res version of KSP...
  13. Those LH2 flames always get me! Then two seconds later, I realize they're normal!
  14. They are polling again!
  15. 0_0 That is a big rocket!
