  • scr00chy 2019-04-17 at 10:33 on OctaGrabber CompendiumI don't think we'll ever know its weight unless SpaceX shares that information with us. Size should be deducable from photos, so maybe somebody could try to calculate it and then I can add it to the article.
  • Gibbs 2019-04-17 at 07:58 on OctaGrabber CompendiumGreat info! Really like the animation. Any idea what the size and weight of the octagrabber is? I can't seem to find specific numbers.
  • scr00chy 2019-04-16 at 19:25 on OctaGrabber CompendiumYou're welcome. πŸ™‚
  • Dmitry Solovyev 2019-04-16 at 17:55 on OctaGrabber CompendiumMany thanks for the great overview. This little but strong guy really deserves more attention!
  • Ancient Wrench 2019-04-16 at 15:07 on Falcon Heavy Center Core Destroyed After Landing Due to Rough Sea ConditionsThe headline says "destroyed" and the article is ambiguous, but the update has clarified the issue. Thanks.

  • trent 2019-04-16 at 14:32 on Falcon Heavy Center Core Destroyed After Landing Due to Rough Sea ConditionsThanks for a great article -- no bs like other sites!! Just wanted to let you know this is appreciated.
  • scr00chy 2019-04-16 at 13:46 on Falcon Heavy Center Core Destroyed After Landing Due to Rough Sea ConditionsWhere does my article say the core went overboard?
  • Ancient Wrench 2019-04-16 at 13:42 on Falcon Heavy Center Core Destroyed After Landing Due to Rough Sea ConditionsThis article, and several others, repeat the SpaceX statement about the core being "unable to remain upright" and wanting to "bring the booster back intact", but that statement does not seem to say that the core was lost overboard. I guess we will have to wait until OCISLY returns to port to find out.
  • Jim Grot 2019-04-13 at 17:25 on Did SpaceX quietly introduce an upgraded reusable fairing? Is Mr. Steven now obsolete?Also note that the seas are not always calm. In rough seas a water landed fairing would take a pounding, whereas the net is always nice and soft.
  • scr00chy 2019-04-03 at 17:26 on OctaGrabber CompendiumThanks, I changed it to "had leaked".
  • Josh 2019-04-03 at 16:24 on OctaGrabber CompendiumSmall correction to be made: In the paragraph about the fire, the following sentence needs to be corrected to past tense: "All the circumstances of the fire are not known, but according to NASA Spaceflight, a portion of the remaining RP-1 fuel from the rocket has leaked after landing which has subsequently accumulated near the containers at the back of the ASDS." "Has" should be replaced with "had," to stay in agreement with the preceding...

  • scr00chy 2019-03-27 at 11:23 on SpaceX Launch ManifestNot sure how useful that would be since we don't really know about all the planned launches. Some are secret, some haven't been announced yet, and then there are Starlink launches. There will be a lot of them but it's unclear how many, how soon and how often they'd be launching.
  • scr00chy 2019-03-27 at 11:20 on Starship CompendiumThat was the original plan but, as explained in the article, Elon recently said that SHS will only have regular nitrogen thrusters (at least initially).
  • Lucky 2019-03-27 at 10:43 on Starship CompendiumGreat Work! Only one comment. Per Elon Musk's comments, it seems that SHS won't use nitrogen thrusters for maneuvering and they will use some type of methane thrusters. "The BFS will have methalox RCS thrusters for spaceship attitude control": Reddit AMA: https://www.reddit.com/r/space/comments/76e79c/i_am_elon_musk_ask_me_anything_about_bfr/
  • Tsudo 2019-03-27 at 09:05 on SpaceX Launch Manifestbe great to also have the total number of upcoming flights manifested
  • Mark 2019-03-27 at 03:00 on Starship CompendiumFantastic resource and really well put together. A few minor suggestions: In the sentence "In addition to the main propellant tanks, Starship will also have smaller header tanks that remain until the landing burn." You probably mean "...Starship will also have smaller header tanks that will remain full until the landing burn." or something similar The last quote from Elon in the Starship (Second Stage) section has an unnecessary open quote mark. " β€œAt first,...
  • scr00chy 2019-03-27 at 01:22 on Starship CompendiumI've been maintaining the Czech version for a few months now so I know what it involves. πŸ™‚
  • Ben 2019-03-27 at 00:27 on Starship CompendiumNice summary. The key to maintaining its usefulness, and thus its popularity/engagement, will be to keep it up to date. This is going to be hard, as the project is developing (and changing) rapidly. Best wishes. Ben
