Recommended Posts

The old topic was one of the most fun and long-lived things I\'ve ever set rolling.

544) When the wind-rushing sound takes less than a half a second to reach its peak pitch and volume.

545) When your spaceplane is sitting at a 45-degree up angle before you touch anything.

546) When said spaceplane hits the lower atmosphere when coming down from a 990 m/s speedrun, and your engines do their best chromatic impression of Big Bird.

547) When you legitimately consider a spin-stabilized lander.

548) When your second stage has the same number of engines as the first.

549) When your flight plan includes a powered backflip in-atmosphere.

550) When you get your watch out to measure the time between frames on launch.

551) When you get a clock without a second hand out to measure the time between frames on launch.
