    Getting back to FH, I heard that they were going to light the engines in pairs, is that only for the static fire or are they doing that for the launch as well?
  2. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    No, see that was the problem, they didn't have Stig in it. that's why it failed.
  3. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    So thats why Red Dragon was cancelled, they are replacing the dragon with a tesla. I guess that makes sense.
  4. ULA launch thread

    Weird to think that there's only one more delta 2 launch left. gonna miss that cool little rocket

    "friendly, familiar shape"... well, rectangles have been around a while I guess, but it doesn't look too friendly to me.

    Got 24ish hours left until Zuma launches. Does anyone know if it will be a full length webcast or will they cut it at fairing sep like a DoD launch?

    Thanks, that's been bothering me for a while now.

    Could I get the G capitalized, please, so its .50calBMG?

    Since they are switching to three sea level Raptors on the BFS, would they also go to three vac Raptors to keep it symmetric or would they stay with four?

    Testing stage 2 landing?
  11. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Does anyone know when they will go back to the titanium grid fins? I know they wanted to use up their stockpile of aluminum ones before they made the switch, but the one landing they did with them was crystal clear, which makes me think that it was burning paint flaking off onto the camera instead of engine soot.
  12. Wich real life rockets do you think look kerbal

    Yeah, I know that's why it came about having the different diameter tanks, that makes sense. What doesnt make sense, however, was the Delta IV small, which had the Delta IV core and Delta II upper stage. Would also like to point out that the LOX tank is placed below the LH tank in that pic...

    The Delta III is a bit unusual.
  14. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Now they are all making new rockets just to try and keep up.

    I haven't yet seen a launch that didn't have any little "Ice Monsters" (thank you Chris B, calling them that from now on) floating away after engine cutoff.
