  1. It depends on what you want in a phone. The latest Galaxy tends to have more features than the latest iPhone, but they are often less polished and more buggy. Many people simply don't care about having the latest and greatest features and want something reliable and sleek. To me personally, an iPhones feels more sturdy in my hand than most androids. If you can foot the bill, iPhones aren't bad at all. iOS is also much more secure than Android which is important to many people. I use an iPhone because I feel it's higher-quality and iOS is much cleaner than Android. iMessage in particular is great. Try to set up a group chat with androids and iPhones, and I'll guarantee you'll get a complaint about "green bubbles." That being said, I think Apple charges too much for iPhones and isn't the most ethical in their business practices. As a side note, you seem to have an unnecessary chip on your shoulder against Apple (or any non-Samsung), @dundun93. Everyone can get along and buy whatever phone they want.
  2. Occasionally I take photos; these were a couple weeks ago. I love photographing birds but hummingbirds are the only ones not too scared to get close to me
  3. The instruction manual is available online :) I got mine today, I probably can't build it until Monday but I'm super duper pumped!
  4. Can't be reported dead if no one finds the body
  5. Yes, the crewed ITS will need to be visited 3-5 times to fully fuel it. Elon has said that he wants the ITS booster to be ready to fly within an hour of landing, so presumably you could launch the crewed ITS and several tankers all on the same booster within a day. Initially, of course, they will not likely have one hour turnaround, so the fueling process might take place over a month(s).
  6. Not all heroes wear capes, and not all people in capes are heroes. Saw it in a Reddit thread a while back.
  7. Another possible explanation is that they hooked up the stolen shuttle into the Empires's communication network, but they needed the shield down to transmit directly to the rebel ships without going through the Empire. The "destroy the shield" message was quick enough that it got through in all the chaos before the Empire could block it, but the plans took much longer to transmit and could have been blocked had they gone through the Empire's network.
  8. bonus points if you make your drawings to scale with one another
  9. I got some books, a couple space posters, a few T-shirts, and a year's subscription to the Adobe Suite
  10. Bothans stole the plans to the Second Death Star. They were never mentioned in A New Hope.
  11. Probably this. The starships above Scarif were clearly relying on their repulsorlifts to stay up. IIRC, when the dead star destroyer hits the not-dead one, the not-dead one is angled "towards" the impact and thus the repulsors would have tried to force it back into the colliding destroyer. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bothan
  12. Those walkers were AT-ACT (All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport), while the ones used on Hoth were the normal AT-ATs. The walkers on Scarif weren't really designed for combat.
  13. "Seriously!? I'm blind!" I really loved this movie, the first third or so felt a little ruched without much character development but it really picks up on Eadu (rocky storm planet). Even though you know how it ends, I still found myself in suspense throughout the final battle, and the very last scene with Vader was over the top ("DUDE! Just pass the plans through the crack in the door!"). I loved how smoothly they matched the ending with A New Hope; you could literally start playing it and it would almost be one continuous movie.
  14. (a lot of these are things I've found in various comment threads around the internet so I don't have names) There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. - Albert Einstein They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away... Well, apple's aren't that soft; they could probably keep just about anybody away depending on how good your aim is. Your future self is looking at you right now through your memories... That's really quite creepy, actually. Especially considering that memories are corrupted over time, so you are essentially living the "true" version of a fable your mind will conjure up sometime, perhaps many times, in the future. It's like an outside observer is constantly watching me through a distorted lens. To imagine a world without adventure would be detrimental to the human race. You aren't doing it wrong if nobody knows what you are doing. Don't do anything you aren't willing to explain to the paramedics. You found it offensive? I found it funny. That’s why I’m happier than you. - Ricky Gervias You know how everyone says you only live once? That's not true; you only die once. You live every day! After we die, there will come a point in time where only one person remembers you, and unless they speak about you and someone saves that thought, then from then on you will cease to exist. It ain't about how hard you get hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. - Rocky Balboa Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. - T.S. Eliot The light at the end of the tunnel could be an oncoming dragon. Today is a beautiful day to be alive.
  15. I think I understand how this works, I just want to be sure I have it right. A rocket engine nozzle or bell is designed to capture the sideways expansion of the exhaust and redirect it down, providing more thrust than a simple hole with gas shooting out. When a nozzle is underexpanded, the gas continues to expand after exiting the bell, and thus the engine is less efficient because it is not capturing all the exhaust. When a nozzle is overexpanded, the gas does not expand all the way and fill the nozzle due to high ambient pressure, and thus the engine is less efficient because the unused nozzle is essentially dead mass. An engine is most efficient when the gases expand to perfectly fill the nozzle, so the engine is capturing all the possible thrust it can. Is this correct? I feel like there are more consequences to an engine being overexpanded than just what I listed.

  17. I love to brainstorm about fictional worlds, but I have a hard time going from a world building, "history textbook"-type POV to a specific story centered around a couple characters. I did write this short story-ish thing today though, if you're interested:
  18. I think this would work quite well as a "KSP 2." It could be almost a tycoon-style game where the goal is to colonize other planets, while not replacing the current KSP
  19. The idea is for it to be a one-way trip, but the colonists will have the option of returning, as the ITS will fly back to Earth anyway. On the topic of LES: I used to be a stickler about having one, but now my view is starting to come around. Colonizing Mars has a huge amount of risk, and anyone going (myself included) will have made peace with the fact that you could die. A LES becomes harder and harder on large designs because it more severely impacts the performance of the spacecraft, and it adds much more complexity, resulting in more points of failure.The people willing to go live on Mars are not the kind of people who won't go for a lack of LES.
  20. The Mk-55 Thud could probably be made into a .625m engine, if you had the option to make it inline like the Puff now can. Going by eye, it also looks like the Pug, Terrier, and LV-T15 could be used on .625 meter rockets in compact mode. Now we just need more fuel tanks in that size. A small SRB wouldn't be bad either
  21. Rather than rating the ships based on the community, I would have a sanctioned rating system. My example would be: 4 Teirs: 1. Flyby 2. Orbit 3. Landing 4. Landing and return to Kerbin So for example, landing on Duna is a higher score than just orbiting Duna, but orbiting Jool is better than landing on Duna (score goes up as planets get farther out)
  22. What I have seen some people do, is line up all their modules in a stack, launch directly to Duna, and then assemble the station once you arrive This can solve the issue of Flimsy Docking Port SyndromeTM
  23. @Pappystein @Heckspress @DownHereInChile @JeffreyCor @Leo_G. I have been away from KSP for a while, been very busy and didn't need the distraction. I will probably update this mod once 1.2 comes out and then port it to SpaceDock. Glad to hear my mod is missed though;)
  24. I have been away from KSP for a while, could someone please fill me in on the major changes of this update?
