    For the engine-heads :
  12. Nothing. Meh. We will be able to work it out from launch vision/telemetry. Looking forward to seeing this baby fly.
  13. I'm thinking sea-level methane, ORSC, not as high as raptors FFSC. Less efficient cycle plus much lower chamber pressure conservative engine design. Raptor 2017 is reportedly 330s at sea level is an upper limit so far. (Merlin is 282s ? RD-180 is 311s) For BE-4 ...... 310s at sea level? I wish the Bez would just tell us. Nilof @ NSF ran some numbers thru MPA engine simulator ....reply #14....came up with 315s at SL.
  14. Anyone want to have a guess at the isp ?
