Re: SpaceX News

The next two flight block five get the pleasure of a complete teardown/ analysis to verify the wear for multiple flights I think they'll have a "Frozen" NASA version, and then over the year or two, will tweak other items using commercial launches. Once they have enough of them, I bet they ...

Re: SpaceX News

Yawn, so boring we are not even watching any more.
Falcon 9's first-stage engines ignited at 12:45 a.m. EDT (GMT-4), generating a torrent of fiery exhaust and thick clouds of steam before vaulting away from pad 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Re: The list of duds

I will be the first to admit my knowledge base on this is old and out of date. A little research show that the aircraft carrier Ford is using flywheels. hemm very interesting. Most of my knowledge comes from A-4 AJB 3 bombing and navigation systems and that system has been retired 30 years. Had one ...

Re: The list of duds

Can you unpack what you mean with "short term" beyond "5 seconds". Also, "high capacity storage"? Short term the five seconds would be referencing the amount and duration of the power output in the current units lIE a ups for a blackout, and high capacity storage would...

Re: The list of duds

Flywheels are dead because the did not live up to the promise of high capacity long term storage. The do a fine job on short term spike and load management (under 5 seconds) but a a medium for high capacity storage , not going to happen.

EM drive just got peer reviews and it does not look good. Unfortunately, a new round of research out of Germany is casting some big doubts on those early results. In a new research paper the team argues that not only does the engine not actually produce any thrust, but that earlier tests may have er...

Re: SpaceX News

The falcon 9 or heavy do not fulfill the mars/ moonraker 8) roll that NASA has envisioned. I will take the support of a government to have a new colony on mars and I feel the BFR is the only way NASA will get on board with the program. Once NASA figures out they can launch probes using the BFR they ...
