    Well, it does bare a pretty strong resemblance as of the last official update.

    Aw. I was really starting to like the Big Falcon Planet Express Ship, too.

    Was there any high-energy venting? Or clicking? Speaking of such things, I encountered a human black hole yesterday, the kind of person that just sucks all the positivity right out of you just by showing up, and I’m still feeling it. Sorry, just venting. And, er, clicking.

    So it would seem. I guess that plan was just... a lot of hot air...

    Don’t confuse reuse with recovery. Elon had mentioned a long while back that reuse of the F9 upper stage was back on the table, sounds like that’s what’s changed. They still need the reentry data from the “mini-BFS”, which isn’t being done with the intention of reuse but just recovery, specifically recovery of that data. Or, Musk decided to scrap it all and just build a Millenium Friggin Falcon.

    That many changes makes me a bit nervous. Do NOT want this to be "let's replace the Space Shuttle" 2.0. They're already building composite hardware, had tools made up... so whatever they're changing can't be that radical if it's going to work with what they've already done...

    Oldish news, but... another redesign?

    IIRC, the reason for no RTLS is just a range conflict, hence the very close barge.

    The first Electron has arrived at the launch site

    And, we have a date! Again. According to SpaceFlightNow, VCLS-1 is on tap for December 10, time TBA.
