  1. Nope, that's not it, I'm in the same timezone as the launch and it's not perfectly 2 hours off, it's 1 hour 50 minutes off If it's just me I'm guessing it's just YouTube being weird
  2. Am I the only one wondering why the livestream says its starting almost 2 hours before launch? I'm sure it's just a small mistake somewhere but... eh, whatever
  3. ...except, of course, those orbits wouldn't be low anymore. If you want a REAL low orbit then you're gonna have other problems as mentioned above.
  4. SHHHHHHH DON'T SAY ANYTHING (But... given 2020's luck so far...)
  5. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSS THE WORM IS BACK, IT LOOKS AMAZING THIS IS THE BEST NEWS ALL DAY Oh and Starship too
  6. I remember there was an unofficial community-run weekly thing at one point, years ago.
  7. Didn't Elon say something about "aiming for about 1.5" at one point?
  8. I feel like that's not the last time we're going to hear those words around here
  9. AW YES LET'S DO THIS Wallops is a 5 hour drive from where I live, hope I can follow them a bit more up close and personal sooner or later...
  10. I didn't mean to suggest that they were going to test it to destruction, I thought he meant SN2 was going to do the tests it was going to do before it blew up- pressurization, Raptor static fire, etc. There was already some speculation on SN1 not flying the 20km hop because of Elon's tweets and minimal equipment being mounted on the outside of the tank (where it would be easier to service but hard to move inside for flight). I'm guessing that "stripping to a bare minimum" means the same thing they did for SN1, but that doesn't mean it's supposed to blow up. And, yes, obviously it would test the thrust structure welds (as well as the tank autopressurization and Raptor firing, probably?)
  11. I... I guess? What the heck does "don't shuck the puck" mean?! But yeah, I'm *guessing* that's what he meant, and this as also suggests that SN2 isn't going to fly- it's just going to do what SN1 was doing with pressure tests. So... I'm guessing after SN2, if it succeeds, they'll start building SN3, and THAT will do the 20km hop. Hopefully in only a few months, they can certainly build one that quickly by now. Of course, it's getting a bit repetitive saying each vehicle is supposed to do a 20km hop, and then it blows up
