  1. I just had a brainwave! Before the flight we learned that max-q would be 10 seconds later on ift-4 than on ift-3. I wonder if the engine out on ascent wasn't a failure but a planned test. Probably not but i just wanted to share that.
  2. I'm just going to say it: elon sometimes sounds like a broken record. Every interview he tells the exact same story about reusability. I agree with the story, but i'd like to hear some more in depth stuff.
  3. Has anyone calculated where starship splashed down? Perhaps an earth imaging satellite has picked it up.
  4. Someone needs to find starship when the sun rises. (It might even wash ashore like a deceased whale)
  5. Which song are you referencing? I really want to know to be able to read your comment as it was intended.
  6. "Exoscientists comments are nominal, proceeding forum thread"
  7. The fact that it made it through reentry with half a forward flap is absolutely amazing!
  8. Can anyone reccommed a good source of starship updates? I just don't want to scroll trough all the other stuff.
  9. I can't seem to find any tracking shots of the booster after separation. Everyday astronaut uploaded a compilation, but every tracking shot ends just after hotstaging. Has anyone got footage of the booster?
  10. i'm exited for interstellar travel!
  11. what are reasons why mars surface probes don't carry a small compressed gas container for blowing the dust of the solar panels at least once?
  12. If I were standing in that spot on Mars, and saw this with my own two eyes, would the colours be the same?
  13. this engine may not look like much, but for me it’s the result of a long period of trial and error in trying to design a practical and aestetically pleasing piston engine for kerbal space program. it uses one mod, which is tweakscale. i really tried to go full-stock but the engine would have been too bulky. i hope you will enjoy it as much as i do. To start it simply stage the jets and give it some throttle. action group 1 toggles the propellor, which you should do, when using is in an aircraft at about 30m/s don’t give it full throttle right away but wait until about 15m/s otherwise the pistons will overheat. at normal flying speeds it won’t overheat but to make it a little easier to use i reccomend just disabling max temperatures in the cheat menu. https://kerbalx.com/theflyingdutchman/Radial-piston-engine-for-vintage-aircraft
  14. I honestly never expected them to reuse them that many times, amazing!
  15. Where did you read that they are removing the tiles? I certainly can't find it..
  16. I agree, this corresponds with my own knowledge on the subject.
  17. The original Wright flyer flew in 1903, the one sold to the army was a later model.
  18. If it was not clear yet... My opinion of Arca is not positive and I do not think their concept will work and is stupid.
  19. Ridiculous design. It has been tried before and it didn't pan out. I believe there is a Scott Manley video about this. The company thought that making a very simple pressure fed rocket stage and bolting as many as needed together was a good idea. Edit: It was the otrec (or otrac) rocket system. 4:10
  20. 2026.. I wonder if fh will even still be flying by then. Perhaps it can do things that ss/sh can't? One reason I can see is boosting it beyond Leo. Starship would have to be refueled for that right?
