  1. Advanced Solar-Electric Energy: Part I

    I dont know how much of an issue it is, but wont extremly thin reflectors or solarpanels get eroded by micrometeorites?
  2. After watching the SpaceX blooper reel i doubt they will have crew on board. New Glenn is even bigger than the Falcon 9 and those were some magnificent explosions. Designing a ship to keep the crew save in case of a crashlanding is propably way more complicated than having it operate without crew, at least during the landing.
  3. Of the new cards any would be enough for you. Both AMD and Nvidia have good options to record gameplay in their current drivers (ReLive/Shadowplay), which dont use as much resources as OBS. Comming from an 9500 even a GT 1030 or RX 550 would be a gigantic speedboost. I would still recommend at least a RX 560 or a GTX 1050 because they are way more powerfull while costing onbly a little more, but im not sure if you would need the additional graphics power...
  4. Is it a small config rewrite? If yes, could you post it here so we can fix it (and continue building) before you upload the next version?
  5. Ive found a bug when using this mod combined with your Near Future Launch Vehicles: The mass of the structural 5m Nosecone (of NFLV) goes to -2 tons after installing Cryogenic Engines. This results in funny physics weirdness... To reproduce: 1. Install NFLV in a clean install -> Nosecone without tanks has a mass of 2 tons 2. Install Cryogenic Engines -> Nosecone without tanks has a negative mass

    Someone compiled a list of all answered questions, way easier to read than the whole thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/space/comments/76e79c/i_am_elon_musk_ask_me_anything_about_bfr/dodhawf
  7. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Wow, it made it to the ship! After that extreme reentry and LoS at 20km i thought the first stage is lost...
  8. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    1km/s of DeltaV is extremly low compared to the hassle with NTRs, especially if you want to reuse them multiple times including landings near settlements...

    Afaik you wouldnt harvest water/ice with a drill, but by digging up soil and heating it in a heated chamber. From what i know most is closely underground anyway.
  10. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    I would be realy happy if we could keep the economical aspects of a mars colony in a seperate theard, afaik we allready had one. Those huge walls of text make keeping up with the thread realy hard while being only remotly about SpaceX...

    Cost/ton wouldnt see the Falcon 1 on the top of the chart, though.
  12. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    And i think high g loads are a big bonus...
  13. 1. Intel new Generation will be revealed in a few days, wait that long. 2. Why did you go with a more expensive Intel Quadcore? Before you had a in most cases superior Ryzen which is also cheaper. 3. This blowerfan card will be extremly loud, the watercooling for CPU isnt, too. I would recommend a custom model for the GPU and an aircooler for the CPU, e.g. a EKL Brocken 3...
  14. Didnt Blender get an update which made AMD also work for rendering? From what ive read they are even faster now since they have more compute power than Nvidias cards.
  15. On both you are only using one stick of RAM, which is bad since you will only have half the bandwidth of a dualchannel setup. The cheaper one includes a 1060 3GB, which is extremly limited by its low memory (there are games allready using more than this), i would rather go for a 570 with 4GB or better 8GB memory, but i have no idea how they are priced now, the mining craze seems to decline...
