  1. Avenger's Endgame comes out the day after my birthday!

    Yeah, that's a question I posted a while back as well. There should be a SpaceX AMA where this gets answered by Elon Musk and the engineers. Maybe even Gwynne Shotwell can get in on it. Because they can't give them a bunch of MREs and air scrubbers and call it a day.

    Finally, a planet around Barnard’s Star!

    I wonder what the likelihood of other planets is. Also, why does it seem so many systems only have 1 (Or at least very few) planet(s)? I've never seen any reasons put forth. I know Proxima might have another one, but what about Ross 128? And this system?

    SpaceX Discussion Thread

    This is one thread I'm always catching up on, and I think this is the first time I've ever seen happy reactions to a delay But what better way to start the month than with a Falcon 9 launch?

    Ignoring that this is actually their idea, or whether it's counterintuitive, why not? Just off the top of my head, not sure if this is completely right; The main drawback with the FH is faring size. It can't do big and bulky payloads. SpaceX wants to replace the Falcon lineup with the BFR/Starship. A ship slightly more capable, but with a much wider and taller faring than the FH would allow bigger payloads, and more flexibility. It'd also be fully reusuable, and refuelable in space, unlike FH/F9. And could still carry an appreciable amount of cargo (And people) to Mars. And possibly, it'd allow them to build it faster (As mentioned earlier in this thread), saving the carbon fiber BFR/Starship down the line when they're more experienced/making more money. This would be a somewhat better version of the New Glenn, now that I think about it.

    For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Yes, they're pictures. And I'm assuming sizes; the drawing zones are 162 x 243. And she needs to be able to do it herself I think(?), because she had to restart due to some technical issues, and the deadline is approaching. CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATIONS: She says that she can work from a computer. The entire page is submitted (The one that's 5 mb. And not individual panels), and she's semi-traditional (She draws by paper, scans it, and applies the screentones).

    For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Hey guys. I hope this is the right forum, but anyway, I, or should I say, my girlfriend needs some help. She is working on a silent Manga contest (No dialogue), and the page submission limit is 5 mb. Hers go up to 106 mb. How can she get it down without severely reducing page quality/resolution? She draws the pictures by hand, and then edits them on the phone with everything else she needs (Like screentones). I haven't seen her full process/finished pictures though, so I can't tell you more than that. I'm also fairly certain she's limited to working with a phone (Not contest rules, she just doesn't have a laptop available).

    The children between worlds <Revived>

    No, just my laptop. It's an ideapad. A novel I'm writing. It kinda died a couple years ago, because I got stuck (and busy), and I wasn't sure if it'd be any good. Plus I made the mistake of showing my first drafts I'm not stuck yet though, just busy. And I'm pushing to finish the 1st draft around December so I can begin Infiitum again. It's not KSP related, it's a novel I intend to publish and everything.

    Damn, okay. Here's hoping to more pad landings then.

    Is there any chance they're going to try it with a F9 first?

    I know, but still. This will be the first landing attempts of a second stage for them.
