  1. Whew, it may have taken me several months, but I finally finished the Von Braun mission. There are two caveats with this submission: 1) I forgot to take screenshots during the initial launch. I hope the fact that this shuttle has flown many times already will suffice. 2) My old save game got lost, so I Alt-F12'ed a station into orbit around Duna. Is that ok?
  2. SSTO Tylo No Refueling Or Docking

    Never mind, I was mistaken....

    Whoa, no boostback or entry burns? Hmmm, that might get a bit toasty on the way down, eh?

    Did SpaceX stop doing the technical webcast, so we don't have to listen to as much babbling?
  5. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Any particular twitter accounts I should follow? I don't think I even have a Twitter account (I mighta made one a couple years ago?).
  6. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    I asked this several pages ago, but I didn't see an answer. We're planning to trek out there to watch on Tuesday, and I want to be able to find out ASAP if it gets scrubbed, so we can fall back to Plan B. What's the best way to get real-time updates on the launch status for FH?

    Why is the thickness of the clouds a concern for launch? What effect does it have?
  8. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Ok, so I'm here in orlando with the family, and this got me even more excited to go try and watch the launch.
  9. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Heh. My only hesitation is the chance the launch would get scrubbed. I'd have some pretty upset kids if that happens. Also, the uncertainty about the actual timing of the launch. Where's the best place to get real-time updates on the launch? If we go and it gets scrubbed, I'd want to know ASAP so we don't sit around for 3 hours hoping for a launch that won't happen.
  10. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    I just realized that I'll be in Orlando during the 6-7th with the wife and kids. We might have to leave Disneyworld for the afternoon to catch the launch...
  11. That's ..... a lot of large fuel tanks. You've been added!
  12. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    I don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but... So they deployed 10 satellites, and all separated from Stage 2 at very low speeds. So that means all the satellites will basically be orbiting as a group, at least in the near term. Or are there some sort of thrusters/engines on the satellites so they can push themselves into different orbits? How does it work to launch a constellation of satellites?

    If there's no scoring, then we can rope in all the entries from this thread as well:

    I don't think the game allows you to run engines while kerbals are on ladders.
  15. Nukes to Orbit

    IIRC, unless Squad have changed the aero model, wings don't generate parasitic drag, only induced drag. You *do* get a significant boost when jettisoning the wings, but at least in my experience, that's due more to the loss of mass than the loss of drag. Is there documentation somewhere of the 2/3/5 degree AoA rule for wings?
