  1. I like that you made the Hopes and Wishes for KSP2. I think the developers should see it.

  2. Thats no problem. The PSU can deliver 360W of 12V, thew GPU needs about 125W, the CPU including RAM and Mainboard will stay below 125W. Even with the other devices you wont reach more than 300W under full load.
  3. Do i understand correctly that the SAOCOM 1B booster will land at LZ-1 and the one from Starlink on the barge?
  4. Regarding testing vacuum engines in normal atmosphere: This is how they do it. If i understand that correctly the engine exhaust "sucks out" ambient air from the diffuser, creating a lower pressure within. The picture from one of the coolest blogs ive ever read: https://blogs.nasa.gov/J2X/ Sadly the J2X engine was shelved among the clusterlove of SLS developement...
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneering_Spirit_(ship) Something like this?
  6. I remember seeing them a long time ago, so not new.
  7. I guess not, thats why they are testing them...
  8. Its extremly annoying to see this stuff only in videos. Its mostly still images, only people are moving a bit. Is there a summary with just pictures somewhere?
  9. Thats a mean burn for Lockheed Martin and Airbus, who both operate their own launch vehicles
  10. It seems realy strange they just went for some bitcoins. Having access to such high level Twitter accounts would open way bigger possibilities. It just starts at stock market manipulation, e.g. Elon Musk "announcing" that Tesla is being bought by Apple and them confirming it. When it comes to political twitter accounts (especialy Trumps) there is great potential to cause real life violence.
  11. The i7 is the most limiting factor here, but even upgrading to the fastest currently available CPU wouldnt bring you a noticable benefit.
  12. It seems that US unions are bad at doing their job. In Germany unions are powerful counters to the employers, at least in more skilled jobs where most of the employes are in a union. They usualy ensure high wages, good working conditions, help with legal battles and make sure that workers arent simply another resource for the company but also have power over the decisions, especialy when it comes to laying of workforce. Sometimes the power of the unions come at a cost, for example if pilots or traindrivers go on strike and cripple a whole country to fight for higher wages/better conditions for a small fraction. But imho thats a small price to pay...
  13. I guess it wont get much better than this...
  14. Did you install the correct graphics driver for it? Edit: This one: https://www.amd.com/de/support/apu/amd-ryzen-processors/amd-ryzen-3-desktop-processors-radeon-vega-graphics/amd-ryzen-3-0
  15. You could try to save some money with buying a used GPU or CPU, there should be lots of Ryzen 1000/2000 available since a lot of people upgraded to an 3000 series one. Similary with RX 470/480/570/580.
