  1. UNITED LAUNCH ALLIANCE PRESS RELEASE (2024-04-19) SCRUB: Standing down from tonight's Delta IV Heavy (DV-011) / Zarya Launch Attempt At approximately T-minus one minute and six seconds before tonight's 10:30 PM EST launch attempt of the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket carrying the Zarya Functional Cargo Block, a fault was detected in the launch vehicle's electrical system, resulting in an automatic launch abort by the launch sequencer. At this time, ULA technicians have assessed the issue and are working on a solution, and the issue is expected to be resolved by tomorrow morning. However, even with the issue being worked, The team is putting into effect what is another 48-Hour Recycle, with the new Launch date being March 23rd, 2024. The new launch window will open at approximately 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time and close at 11:00 PM on the 23rd. Please stay tuned for continuing coverage and updates about Delta IV DV-011's Launch Campaign with the first element of the International Space Station aboard!

  4. @ColdJ Appears it's loading but it still doesn't show. In the log: [LOG 18:25:03.016] Load MU model: Yezcorp/Buildings/Servicetower/MST37 [LOG 18:25:03.029] [Shabby] custom shader: KSP/Diffuse [LOG 18:25:03.029] [Shabby] custom shader: KSP/Diffuse the CFG: // Generated by Kerbal Konstructs STATIC { mesh = MST37.mu module = Part static = true author = ULA title = Complex 37 MST category = none cost = 0 manufacturer = United Launch Alliance description = Complex 37 MST name = Complex37tower } I have literally zero idea what to do. it's so frustrating as i feel that i have tried all that i can over the course of the last few days.
  5. @ColdJ Hey, I'm having this weird problem and I was wondering if you could help me. I finished making a KK static in sketchup, then exported to blender with colliders and shaders having been set up in blender, and i think i set up the materials correctly too. I Exported it as a .MU and wrote a .CFG for it but it just will not load in game for some reason and i'm not sure why. Any help you can provide? I can post screenshots or send you a link to the model privately, as I don't want it public yet.
  6. UNITED LAUNCH ALLIANCE PRESS RELEASE (2024-03-18) Delta IV Heavy to launch the Zarya Functional Cargo Block (ISS 1A/R, FGB) (Please note, this release has been edited to reflect the new launch Date/Time as of 04/20/2024 02:00AM EST.) Rocket/Payload: A United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket will launch the Zarya Functional Cargo Block (Funktsional'nyy Gruzovoy Blok) For the Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos. The Zarya module Is the first element of the International Space Station. Date/Site/Launch Time: Confirmed on the Eastern Range for Sunday, April 21st with a window ranging from 4:00 to 11:00 PM, from Space Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida. Webcast: Not available. Multimedia will be available after the launch on the mission’s forum page. Mission Description: The Zarya module Is the first element of the International Space Station to be launched. Zarya will provide electrical power, storage, propulsion, and guidance to the ISS during the initial stage of assembly. The research and development of Zarya was paid for by Russia and the design of the module and all its systems are Russian. The United States funded Zarya through the U.S. prime contracts in the Late 2010s as the first module for ISS, and it was built from December 2019 to December 2022 in Russia at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center (KhSC) in Moscow. Zarya is being launched on Delta IV due to the retirement of Russia’s venerable Proton-K Launch system, which was previously slated to launch Zarya. Roscosmos and ULA signed the Mission’s Launch Contract in November 2020, along with the contracts for Zvezda and MRM-1, which are also to be launched on Delta IV rockets. Launch Notes: The launch of Zarya will be the first-ever International Delta IV launch, Contracted by United Launch Services. It is also the first of three contracted Delta IV launches for The Russian Federal Space Agency/Roscosmos, the others being the Zvezda Service Module and the Rassvet MRM-1. This mission is the Ninth Delta IV Rocket to be flown since its inaugural launch in 2020 and the Third Delta IV Heavy.

  7. Exactly! Gotta love that Hydrogen-rich start!
  8. Can’t tell if that’s sarcasm but whatev lmao Yeah, I know. Expendables suck, ULA sucks, SpaceX is the future yadda yadda yadda… There’s nothing wrong with being a fan of beefy (albeit expensive) expendables. Just like there’s nothing wrong with liking New Glenn, or Starship, or any rocket. SpaceX’s stuff is still cool to me too, and yes, it is the future. There’s no need for Delta IV anymore, it’s too expensive and there’s better vehicles- that’s why it’s retiring (obviously.) Imo DIVH is still cool regardless.
  9. Rest in peace to my favorite rocket of all time... "the most metal of all rockets", and to also (in my opinion) the coolest launch system family ever developed. Delta IV soared into the sky one final time yesterday and brought to a fitting end the Delta legacy dating back more than 60 years, delivering hundreds of payloads on time and on target, and assuring access to space for the U.S. Air Force/U.S. Space Force, NASA, and Commercial customers... (yeah, yeah, i know, it's been a bit for that one, with the last one being W5 in 2002...) But still- Delta 386/L-70 was one to remember... and one that will never be forgotten in my mind. I've seen many Delta IV (And Delta II) launches dating back to when I first got into spaceflight as a young kid around the time of EFT-1, and the Delta legacy will live on for many people, including me... and in the hardware itself. While Delta may be gone, the technology lives on in Vulcan- the best of both the dependable Atlas and Delta families. I personally can't wait to see what the future holds. So for the last time... GO DELTA! GO L-70! GO TEAM!
  10. Hey @OrdinaryKerman, is there any way you can point me in the right direction with this? I'm trying to find a way to get the KSP builtin textures into sketchUp so that I can model a building... how would I go about doing that? I'm somewhat new to this so any help would be appreciated with regards to making KK statics. Thanks!
  11. UNITED LAUNCH ALLIANCE PRESS RELEASE (2024-03-22) LAST UPDATED 2:02 AM, MAR 22, 2024 Mission Success! Delta IV Delivers DRS-2 to Orbit for Multiple U.S. Government Customers A United Launch Alliance Delta IV Medium+ (5,4) Launch Vehicle lifted off from Space Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida today (March 22, 2024) at 12:10 AM Eastern Standard Time (0410 Zulu.) Delta IV Successfully Delivered all six DRS-2 payloads to orbit for the U.S. Space Force (USSF), Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), And the Space Test Program’s 3 Corner Satellite payloads, built by Arizona State University (Sparky), Colorado University-Boulder (Raphie) and New Mexico State University (Petey.) The final satellite (Petey, 3CS-3) was deployed from the DRS Rideshare adapter built by the Boeing Company and United Launch Alliance approximately 21 Minutes after launch, at 12:31 AM EST. Please note that there will be no further comment from ULA on the NRO payload, due to its classified nature. All other questions and comments can be directed to the NRO. Questions about the other payloads may be directed at ULA or their respective operating agencies. Photos may be released of the payloads pending DOD approval later this week or early next week. The DRS-2 Mission is comprised of six separate satellites from six different agencies and universities around the United States. The mission is jointly funded by the U.S. Space Force and National Reconnaissance Office and is part of the Defense Rideshare Satellites Program. The launch of DRS-2 was the second-ever Delta IV launch from Space Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida. Complex 37B was purpose-built to meet the increased demand for Delta IV Launches and to ensure access to space for our Space Force, National Reconnaissance Office, NASA, And Commercial Customers. The mission was the Eighth Delta IV Rocket to be flown since its inaugural launch in 2020, and the First Delta IV Medium+ (5,4). Remembering ULA Teammates and honoring resiliency As with every Mission, ULA Dedicated the Delta IV Launch Vehicle in Honor of ULA Teammates who are no longer with us. Today’s launch also honored the AFRL Defense Mapping and Imaging Satellite team, who have shown incredible resiliency and passion to make the launch of DMIS-2 possible.

  12. UNITED LAUNCH ALLIANCE PRESS RELEASE (2024-03-21) UPDATE: Extending the launch window for tonight's Delta IV/DRS-2 Launch Attempt As of 9:40 PM EST, the ULA Launch Team and the 45th Weather Squadron have decided that there will be an extension to the launch window for tonight's Delta IV/DRS-2 Launch, with the primary reasoning being the fact that the weather tomorrow afternoon is not looking favorable for the backup launch window. Launch is now targeted for 12:10 AM EST on the 22nd of March, approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes from now. The team is currently working only one issue pertaining to the launch sequencer. The new launch window will extend until approximately 2:20 AM on the 22nd of March. Please stay tuned for continuing coverage and updates about Delta IV DV-009's Launch Campaign, Carrying the DRS-2 satellites. (Last Updated 9:40 PM 03/21/2024) (As always, this is a work of fiction.)
  13. FYI To everyone- just made a small update to today's edition of Spaceport News, and revised the mission patch description.
  14. Good question! It reads “Delta IV.” I just thought it was a cool touch, considering it’s a military payload and binary has been featured in a number of IRL mission posters for the military. One of the payloads also includes an encrypted communications suite, too, so it also sort of represents that in a way.
