  1. Where’s Walter Keronkite when you need him? OTOH this feller certainly gets around...
  2. Well... at least it’s better than February...
  3. Hmm, somehow this got lost in the haze... 7 down, 3 to go.
  4. This. In order to work at all economically, Starlink needs radically reduced launch costs. Those same radically reduced launch costs will allow lofting many "cheap" space telescopes, maybe even based on the Starlink buss itself (coulda sworn I saw this mentioned somewhere). One way or another, the world will be a very different place in a hundred years, or a thousand. Sooner or later it'll just end up looking like Coruscant anyway. If we don't nuke ourselves into Tatooine first...
  5. Boosters are expensive. Also, winds aloft too high I think.
  6. You’ll have plenty of time later to get old and boring like me, going to bed at 11pm so I have the patience to drive back and forth all day in mall traffic on Black Friday.
  7. The question is, what reason do you have to not stay up til 2 am?
  8. Thufferin’ thuccotath... There is, perhaps, also the question of what linguistics came before Old Kerba, and survived into it...
  9. You should totally make a test stand out of an old water bucket. Then hop it.
  10. Cool, apparently this will be that particular Dragon’s third flight. Isn’t that a first?
  11. Sadly, the time may have finally come for this thread to move on... but not yet. My KSP time has been focused elsewhere, in a very “this we do not speak of” way, and much as it pains me to say so, I probably won’t be able to give this the time it deserves (right as it was getting interesting ). But there will be at least one last official post, and for anyone following my other work, some questions will finally be answered. More will, no doubt, be asked.
