Sorry error upon error , What I needed to say it takes 27 KG of fuel to get one more KG to orbit. :oops: (pesky little decimal places)
secondly I for some reason assumed you were keeping the payload the same ...I don,t know I need to start breaking those pills in half or taking twice as many.
Florence had me rattled as well but all is good and hopefully forgiven.

Launches from Vandenberg are used for polar orbits.

Pretty launch tonight. Uneventful, but pretty. Wonder whether they caught themselves a fairing today :)

They didn’t even try to catch. No reason was given, but rough seas + night attempt may have been factors.

Awesome time lapse:

And yet another breathtakingly routine launch and recovery...

Another russian based failure to the ISS, they better start paying those guys again.
“There needs to be more transparency, and better wages for ordinary engineers,” said Mr Luzin. “It’s absurd that a rocket engineer is earning $400 a month while Mr Rogozin and his bureaucrats are flying business jets.”

Low wages bar people with ambition from entering the profession, said Mr Luzin. But it is not the only reason why young engineers aren’t coming in to replace the Soviet-trained generation. Since the space sector is classified as a military industry, specialists are by law prohibited from travel or work abroad. “The clever youngsters keep well away,” said Mr Luzin.

James Oberg, a retired Nasa Space Shuttle mission control specialist, told The Independent that the Russian space industry is beginning to resemble a “medieval order of soldier monks”. Those specialists who remained are capable and dedicated, he said, “but they are now all dying at their posts”.
The Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 4:40 a.m. EDT Thursday, October 11 (2:40 p.m. in Baikonur) carrying American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin. Shortly after launch, there was an anomaly with the booster and the launch ascent was aborted, resulting in a ballistic landing of the spacecraft.

Search and rescue teams were deployed to the landing site. Hague and Ovchinin are out of the capsule and are reported to be in good condition.

Let's not forget that congress cut the funding for commercial crew by 67% between 201 to 2013 and continued to underfund it thereafter, which resulted in the delays of commercial crew and the continued reliance on Russian Soyuz.
