    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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

    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.

    Anyone have any idea what the engine layout for the booster is? Dont think they showed it during the presentation, but it looked like there were 2 rings and a center cluster like the old one. The outer ring looked pretty spread out too

    And be honest, how many of you are already building this thing?

    If I had to guess, I might say something along the lines of the general public thinking Mars is impossible for humans to get to, but the moon is much easier, and would be more likely to fund it because it seems more reasonable.

    I know it wont be as good not to see it live, but there is always youtube tomorrow. meanwhile, I'm sitting here with a falcon 9 shirt and spacex jacket on. Time cannot move fast enough

    I think I remember Musk saying at one point that under the right conditions they could get a 1:1 glide ratio on returning stages, just can"t remember where. I think it may have been at the IAC last year, but I could be wrong.

    On an unrelated note, I found a few more ideas on how the Raptor engines could be clustered on a 9m BFR booster thanks to reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/SpaceXLounge/comments/6pccdz/comparison_of_several_possible_engine/
