  1. Stream glitched out on liftoff sadly but S1 and Fairing seps went ok, and second stage burn is nominal so far. It looks like they are going to make it this time!
  2. I don't think it is particularly likely (especially after Jared's tweet just now) but presumably a recovery mission won't take place for a long while - In that time starship, in theory, will be able to prove itself. Regarding the tweet, Dragon has carried docking adapters before, but there was always a robotic arm involved. I wonder how they plan to get around that.
  3. Recover Hubble via Starship with Dragon EVA support?
  4. My assumption is that the right hand image is the entire field of view of the camera, but either to save on bandwidth, or to zoom in, only part of the image is being displayed (centered on the asteroids, like some kind of image stabilization). That is the left hand box. The right hand box shows that image's location in the full field of view.
  5. Anyone know when we will get pictures from the cubesat that is observing the impact?
  6. Alright that's it I'm going frame by frame and plotting acceleration and velocity based on the official telemetry. There's been too much speculation on this. I might have a little bit of free time tomorrow morning to do it, but in general this week is very busy for me so it will take a while.
  7. I prepared for the first exam of the semester for like 15 hours and still only got a 70%. That is one of the 3 or 4 grades in the class (class is graded on exams only) and it only gets harder from here. And I was going to try to turn my GPA around this semester...
  8. I am well aware of that, I'm just curious as to what gremlins are in the engines that they have needed to do so many spin primes.
  9. I wonder why they are doing so many of those. Also, page 1500!
  10. I have a hard time believing that a mostly vertical re entry from a low altitude would make more g forces than a mostly vertical re entry from a high altitude. Might have been a spike upon the abort engine ignition.
  11. My dad was in California for vacation this past week and he went 0 for 3 on launch attempts. I guess the luck required to get 3 consecutive launch attempts from Vandy was canceled out by the bad luck of none of them working.
