Re: SpaceX News

Sorry guys , no little green men or super secret squirrel satellite. It is oxygen ice from inside the nozzle on stage two when the turbo pump runs a pre-chill cycle before startup, hence the blueish hue to it. :mrgreen: It falls on top of stage one then falls off. Also stage one pre cools before f...

Re: SpaceX News

S1 MECO is at T= +2:40. I am speaking about the object at T=+6:02. Also at that moment the S1 is no where near stable orbital altitude, but that object does look quite big and it doesn't really look like a piece of ice. IIRC, the 1st stage would peak in altitude somewhere below 120 km. Unlikely to ...

Re: SpaceX News

At T = +6:02 it seems like a very near miss with some other (fairly big) object.Maybe it was just some space trash or an active object, but it was in my understanding that anything orbiting earth bigger than 1 meter was supposed to be under constant monitoring, so I get to wonder how that object man...

Re: SpaceX News

Maybe you meant "more than 10% of the F9 first stage"? Added weight to the first stage does not really affect payload mass as much. It is more relevant for the BFS though, which is a second stage and there every added kg means a kg less payload. Yes, that's what I meant to say. Poor wordi...

Re: SpaceX News

Pathological skepticism is great! I think everyone could use more skepticism. I am comforted that you all are not concerned by this design change, though no one has really addressed how such a large surface area can be reliably/safely actuated at hypersonic speeds. In all fairness I don't think any...

Re: SpaceX News

There may even be a NET decrease if you use less inflated numbers than I did. I didn't run the numbers but that is probably the real situation. Any pipe beam that in general is longer than 8-10 times its diameter will start to show buckling and instability effects, even more if the beam is not perf...

From a static, dynamic and mechanical point of view, the fins are a much better solution than using longer legs in the original position.

Re: BLP news

It would be more entertaining if an angry mob of scammed investors raided the place, torched it down and dipped in tar and feathers all those scammers.

That would made for an interesting day.

Re: Deneum - deuterium/titanium interaction prces energy

A quick search of people's names/pictures shows the involvement of some in previous ICO/Tokens scams.
The profiles/pictures of the scientists are made up. A scam not even well planned.
Rossi at least involved some real people to make it look more real :lol:

Re: Deneum - deuterium/titanium interaction produces energy

Well at least is something new. I never saw before an excess energy scam connected to an ICO with Token sales.
It's always the same crap in the end, but gotta give them credits for the fantasy that they are showing.

I wonder if Rossi will follow their steps in launching an ICO :roll:

Black Light Power (promised demonstration model in 2017 and products later that year, still nothing true to form) Not 2017, BLP has been scamming investors since much longer than that. It was founded in 1991 with a "tested technology", a "working prototype" and a "time to m...
