Gonna have to get some hard numbers on those raptor specs. Expansion ratio would be really helpful.

380s and 200 tonnes thrust in vacuum ??

NSF folkes suggest the increase to 30MPa chamber pressure gives 2MN at sea-level.....interesting.

I wonder if they stayed with expansion ratio 40.....those bells still look unchanged at 1.3m diameter.

He's inviting 6-8 artists from around the world to accompany him!

Hence him buying all the seats.
