    Fun comic about Insight: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/insight Little more then 3 hours to go... Exciting!!
  4. So Queqiao is set to launch in 6 minutes.. anyone got a live stream i can watch?? edit: so it doesn't look like there is a livestream for this launch so here's some information on the mission: http://www.newsweek.com/race-moon-chinese-launch-lunar-communication-station-sunday-933057 Some Dutch science going on even for this mission nice...

    Kinda happy it got scrubbed.. didn't see the launch warning on my phone. I would have missed a launch after seeing 4 launches live.. hope i don't miss it again tomorrow...

    Good sep all is good yay now its time for SCIENCE! btw some Q&A about how TESS is different from Kepler: https://tess.gsfc.nasa.gov/scienceqa.html Go find those rocky planets!

    I think its amazing to see that fairing part falling just about 20 seconds before the entry burn.. it must be landing pretty close to the drone ship.

    I am not sure about recovery but if you put the stream at -13:50 and look at the 1st stage cam i swear i can see one half fairing falling down through the sky... edit: sorry not sure about the time in the stream because its still running but its right after she says something about the turbo pump still running good.. edit2: It's at T+ 6:13 mission time...

    And TESS is just in time as Kepler is running low on fuel.

    Hope everything goes well
  13. That's not true you will need a next gen graphics card but nowhere near $5000 You can get a titan card for 208 euro https://www.bol.com/nl/p/msi-geforce-gtx-1050-ti-gaming-x-4g/9200000068599354/?Referrer=ADVNLGOO002013-G-49170245275-S-382273938198-9200000068599354&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtZzWBRD2ARIsAIPenY02Sz152JbZY73BQVVZvlWheIkyw1Qknq81dtniH3r928mOsKUDm6saAo-REALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.d Two of those in SLI should do it if they would support the new tech. I expect the next gen cards to be able to handle it for a bit more then 500 euro... Also look at this for some ray tracing science: https://www.cs.unc.edu/~rademach/xroads-RT/RTarticle.html You don't sell a new feature like that if you have to spend $5000 to be able to use it...
  14. Not a game but i think the Unreal engine is still in top of graphics quality.. Especially when ray tracing is going to be used in new games.. Just look at this: Remember that this is rendered in real time.. It's getting very close to the pre-rendered quality we are used to from movie CGI...
