  1. right size for ch4 header tank....12 tonnes?(~28m3 as per steve) the lox header (pipes ?) have to hold 3.6 x 12 = 44t total 56t provides about 1000m/s on a 185t vehicle @ 380s.
  2. good news. 2017.1 to 2019.2 is a lot of stuff. physx 3.4, garbage collector update, ecs, lots of other neat stuff. i will be interested to see what difference it makes for performance. maybe not much at first until they decide to re-architect to ecs. that would be a non-trivial task. what are u most looking forward to?
  3. Also Hollister David has some interesting ideas for low gravity moons. Tunneling and tensile/compressive towers. EML2. http://hopsblog-hop.blogspot.com/2019/08/wish-list-for-space-video-games.html
  4. Will you use Unity ECS? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4rWfPyf-hk https://blogs.unity3d.com/2019/03/08/on-dots-entity-component-system/
  5. Starwaster updated deadly reentry for 1.6 about 2 days ago : https://github.com/Starwaster/DeadlyReentry/releases And realheat most recent commit has a dll recompile for 1.6.1 : https://github.com/KSP-RO/RealHeat
  6. Got the center. Got some nice telemetry for a GTO sat. awesome
  7. What sort of acceleration limits are we going see on FH today? 3g? maxq? 30kPa? Have the block 5 sea level engines raised their isp (from 282s- 311s) ? What chamber pressure are they at now? How much fuel do you think will remain in the center core after booster sep? 120t? A bit of prop gets burnt during engine startup from T-3s to T + 0s How much prop do you think is in the tanks at liftoff? 405t?
  8. I was interested in what measurements they could take from this image : The University of Amsterdam's Sera Markoff said that the size of the black hole provided a new estimate of its mass; she called it "really a monster, even by black hole standards." It's roughly the size of the Solar System, but it has a mass that is 6.5 billion times that of our Sun. This actually resolved a conflict between two other measures of its mass, one from the motion of gas clouds nearby, the other from tracking the stars orbiting it. This may help us refine estimates of mass for black holes elsewhere. from ars https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/04/event-horizon-telescope-gives-us-first-images-of-what-its-named-for/
  9. this is block3 -> block 5 cores right?
  10. For the faithful : Does anybody know who did the original with FH? I only rubbed out the FH to put in hopper. I know it is hard to tell its been doctored.
  11. Sweet baby raptor jesus. This thing is going to be all kinds of awesome.
  12. The internet needs transpiration cooling.
