  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Chump change in reality but all the little stuff adds up.

Exciting how the landings are becoming more routine nowadays. From talking with some buddies still there they are all on a huge push to ramp production up even quicker than it is today. Everything consists of doing things more efficiently and not cutting corners. In the last 6 months approx 3 weeks has been shed off the time that a vehicle sits in Texas (current bottleneck). That's almost in half if I'm not mistaken.

Current stock price hasn't reflected the excitement level around landing the vehicles which is interesting. At this point just have to be patient I think.

@tturner86 ya I believe it's still going but at a snail pace in comparison. The business model needs high rate of launches to keep going so that is the huge focus. And reliability. The Texas launch center is mainly so they don't have to deal with the Air Force for every rock you turn over and pee they take. Some of their requirements are good, some are just dumb.

I don't live too far from Mcgregor, so I have heard the rocket test and have seen the grasshopper before.

I'd be cool to see a launch from South Texas.

I was back there to watch one of the grasshopper tests and talk about surreal ... When the engine passes the horizon into the blue sky the entire thing looks fake, then you remember that the vibration is shaking the heart out of your chest! Some of the videos show the same thing too.

I have some buddies in temple. Still think about moving out that way

Isn't it!!

I think this video was posted a ways back but the go pro was working until just before it hit the dirt. It was a very awesome video to watch all the way through. It gives a different perspective as to how the atmosphere affects an object like that. It started out tumbling just a little bit and then got so fast you were sick just watching it

SpaceX rocket: Explosion at Kennedy Space Center ahead of launch


The cause of the blast is not clear and it is not known if anyone was hurt.

Nasa said SpaceX was test-firing a rocket which was due to take a satellite into space this weekend.

Pictures from the scene show a huge plume of smoke rising above the complex.

The force of the blast shook buildings several miles away.

SpaceX has used its Falcon-9 rocket to take supplies to the International Space Station (ISS).
