  1. I believe it's a term for companies doing a highly publicized "green" stunt to make the public think they are a green company while not actually being a green company. It is a term with negative connotations.
  2. First HTV-X mission is scheduled for 2022 I believe. As far as I know its still being worked on, IDK why they would cancel it this late into development.
  3. This is my new goal. I don't care how difficult is lol, or how much it makes my computer cry, I will do my best to do this!
  4. Four things happened today. First off, I had my second ever FTL hard mode run that got to Sector 8, this run being a boarding build (and a fairly poor one at that) of Mantis B, the boarding part of which crumbled in the last few sectors as my 3 mantis 1 rock boarding crew died and I had to jankily patch together a new boarding crew last minute, at times even resorting to using Engi boarders. I immediately failed the flagship fight. I had a plan but it relied on me being able to disable shields with ion bombs. However I forgot to account for cloaking disrupting both my teleporter and my we
  5. I can strongly relate to this. This comic and Kuzzter's comics inspired me to start writing my stuff, it's a shame that both projects have stagnated... Although to be fair, both of my main projects have also stagnated.
  6. There's a lot of speculation that this award is because the SpaceX option was the only one they could afford, and even then they had to talk SpaceX down in price a bit. There is further speculation that, because Congress probably won't be happy with this choice, that this also serves as a play to say "We'll have two landers, we'll give you what you want, if you properly fund us."
  7. Excellent drone shots on this one!
  8. So we are looking at 15-20k tiles for the whole starship? That's a lot of tiles.
  9. If the third party's options are lower cost than the in house options, it makes perfect sense.
  10. March 31, 2021 - Launch of Reacher 1 Picture taken a few minutes after the save was created. Reacher 1 launched at around 10:15 AM CST on March 31 2021 and touched down a few minutes later. The rocket carried Jebediah Kerman, and managed to recover 23 science points! I even managed to land it on the VAB roof! We have now recovered it, and we may refuel it and relaunch it from the runway to get even more science. We must wait roughly 18 hours to research the first 2 tech nodes, so we must wait at least that long before building Reacher 2, which aims to
  11. S.P.I.R.I.T. - Space Program In Real Ish Time You read that right, I will be attempting to play through lightly modded KSP career mode in real (ish) time, with the end goal being a mission to Duna, assuming I manage to become Duna-capable before the transfer window. This means no time warp. Note, depending on how my laptop reacts to running KSP for long periods of time, I might change to waiting the necessary amount of time in real life and then time warping to that point in game when I get there. If the fan noise prevents me from sleeping, this will be the likely route. Th
