  1. How the flarp did it get that close? I would agree. I would love to have a piece of an Electron.
  2. One minute! *HYPE INTENSIFIES*
  3. ULA launch thread

    4 minutes.
  4. Help with Relationships Thread

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ^Excited but nervous screaming^ My crush gave me one of these things yesterday (it's a model you have to cut out the pieces to and assemble, very time consuming, and tiny, infuriating to build, but that's besides the point)...! Earlier in the week she also gave me a cookie with some jam/jelly in the middle that looked like it had been made in whatever the school calls cooking class now. Upon closer examination, you could see that the spot of jam looked like a heart... Not sure if that was intentional or not. However, responding to this and maybe asking her out isn't my strong area by a long shot. I need to do something, but I just don't know how to do it... And also the semester changed so I only have one class with her, and that's lunch on Fridays...
  5. Awesome, two launches tonight potentially!

    @NSEP Phases 6 and onward of the storyline:
  7. Proposal for a crewed tether-centrifuge mission

    I agree, a low gravity medium term mission is probably necessary at some point. However, it can be done for cheaper, maybe even in one launch. Say you took a very lightly modified Falcon 9/Dragon combo (Starliner might also work) so that once in orbit, stage two and the Dragon would be connected with a tether. The Dragon's RCS could be used to spin it up. The tether would have to be specially attached to the Dragon/S2, hence the slightly modified (as you said, docking ports probably can't handle the forces) part. Crew Dragon isn't huge, but it's still pretty large considering it's a space capsule. A crew of three might work for medium term. the extra oxygen can fit in the trunk. Granted, it would be pretty cramped and you wouldn't be staying for six months, but it would only require one mission if done right. I do like the idea of a multi launch artificial gravity complex, though. Some day...
  8. What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Hmm... IRL chronologically, the ASRA world was the first world to be made, I think in 2014-ish. Then there was a ton of other worlds, the actual creative mode rocket world (which I haven't told about yet) coming soon after. The first survival started in late 2016, with the cannon launch occuring in Jan. 2017, and the first Iron Giant launch on March 30, 2017... Symbolic because that was also the same day SpaceX reused a booster for the first time. In that world I've currently launched five modules of the space station (about halfway finished), and the next launch will introduce a non-reusable solid fueled kick stage that will launch a lunar impact probe. I'll get pictures of stuff eventually, but these worlds are all on the xbox 360, and screenshotting involves syncing your account to a twitter of facebook or something like that, so I might just take pictures of the screen instead.
  9. Count to 1,000 but without the numbers

  10. The user below me...

    I have not seen 8 yet, but I saw 7 when it came out. I've been meaning to for a while... TUBM has written and recorded a song.

    Sorry for the late response, but here's the incredibly abbreviated version: (After writing the first 2 phases, this isn't actually as abbreviated as I wanted it to be...) EDIT: Oops. I didn't finish it and hit submit. I'll edit this again when all of it is written. EDIT: Phase 3 done. There are, like, 10 phases, so this might be a multiple day writeup... EDIT: Phase 5 done. I'll write the rest later.
  12. JAXA Launch Thread

    About ten minutes to go!
  13. You Know You're A Nerd When:

    It's for a music video, I'll definitely be posting it around when it is finished!
