    I’ve been having thoughts on this recoverable top bit (fairings and upper stage etc) would keeping the fairings on as some sort of heat shielding not make it recoverable from Orbit if it came in nose first? the bells fragility could be overcome with some fancy aerodynamics maybe? Like diverting air from around the outside of the upper stage through some sort of Venturi that keeps the engine bells structure?

    That FH picture gets me tingling! MOAR BOOSTERS!!!

    Wish they’d fix that drone ship link

    I’m sure they’ve been using those strong backs for the last 2 launches. Looks different to the others previously which makes me think it has to be a FH strongback

    That entry looks harsh AF too. Don’t normally see all that heating. shame about the downlink
  6. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    That looks like a different strongback... FH...?

    Sorry I means dragon and dragon 2 if FH is so difficult, why do they persist with it? Expesially since they have their BFR in the making

    So what happens to the dragon capsules and the certification F9/FH has/should achieve? Perhaos i I was hopeful FH would be a success where they think it won’t be but it seems really stupid to put all your eggs in 1 basket. Hes got got people lining up to get a satalite or something on top of a F9, I don’t think people will be so keen on a new rocket just because of its size.

    Wait wait wait... did I just read that the F9 & FH will have production stopped for this thing? is that because they expect them all that have been built already to be reusable? Or he’s NFI about such menial things anymore? Landing a F9 booster is majestic, I can only imagine how glorious FH will be so if they’ve been canned I’ll be disappointed
  10. Well that ruins my beautifully designed rovers and non returnable landers then ha! Thanks for the reply, I may take that part of it out of the game if it doesn’t mess the whole thing up. I still consider the goo and the bay something that you would be able to download data from and return it home even though I see the merits of it being a must return.
  11. Hey, great mod, love the way it works. makes KSP make a bit more sense in career mode. can anyone help me with regards to the mystery goo & material bay please? i may have missed it and i just realised I cant collect the science as usual, so how am i supposed to get the full amount of science? do I have to return it in the canisters?

    Separation shots on point! Nice to to see the full first stage cycle!

    Definitely won’t build a space plane. musk has made his opinion on wings in space and their uselessness previously
  14. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Can anyone confirm that was the Falcon heavy strong back that was used!?

    That first stage turn and boost away was an awesome shot from the second stage
