Re: Go Navy!

I suspect you are correct. And, maybe they should have popped some flares once the maneuver was completed. A giant flaming penis would have been talked about for 1,000 years...

Re: LENR Is Real

Even more funny, is Rossiclown has now claimed it was some Journalist who used info from his blog.
The man is hilarious, two good laughs out of one thing!

Re: LENR Is Real

And, on another Rossiclown news note, for those who do not know, the showman will be putting on his much anticipated Quack-X Extravaganza, on the 24th. For a lucky (supposed) 70 folks who have recieved personal invites from the Master of Clownery Hisself, they get to be there in person, and rub heel...

Re: EMC2 news

Can't say anything else at this point.
Sorry.
However, if things go as planned there will be something published in the next few months.

Re: SpaceX News

So why don't we do the back of the napkin, as I have been suggesting. Let's do it with what we know, and the goal of minimizing g stress on pax. Sooo, since 1.3g was let go, we can run the fuel mass required for escape (up boost only), with an estimated total vehicle mass of 100T (dry), and limiting...

Re: SpaceX News

As far as I am aware, Musk stated at the latest IAC conference the anticipated lift off G was 0.3 net, 1.3 thrust to weight ratio. He did not say it would keep that ratio throughout the boost. I can see advantages to burning one engine at min throttle throughout the flight until the 180 flip around...

931.2kg/sec.
One engine for 16 minutes at 100% = 893,952kg fuel (1,970,826.8 lbs)

Next please... go to run again...

Re: SpaceX News

You may be very right about that. Especially given how geologically stable Mars appears to be compared to Earth. On another note, I have not yet had time given work commitments last week, over the weekend, and this week to finish the BFR launch mass idiot check for minimizing G force to 1.3. The las...

Re: SpaceX News

Note: but some bad data into the thought stream (Thanks Ladajo don't know what i was thinking) ICBM start at about 3 G . but the basic problem still remains the same, will the BFR hold enough fuel to take off and land within a acceptable margin for passenger comfort. Lets throw out depressed trajec...

Re: SpaceX News

Agreed, however I think there is enough info to take a shot at it. The number I posted above for 16 minutes is with a constant 1.2g. That can be unpacked with a trial boost mass(fuel+vehicle) / thrust / mass shedding rate (fuel mass burn rate) for the BFR. We have an idea for the BFR configuration, ...

Re: SpaceX News

As an after thought, at 1.2g it would take about 16 minutes to get to 11,186 m/s. How much fuel (launch mass & volume) would that take? For reference, the space shuttle used to take a little over 8 minutes to reach 11,186m/s. And that was with an increasing g force over the flight profile, up to...

Re: SpaceX News

P2P BFR profile are already known to be 1.3g How do we know this? And how does that translate to Musk's claims for transit times? Honestly, no one gives a shit about launch plumes. It is about flight efficiency / range. The average flight time for ICBMs is considered to be 30 mins. This is not actu...
