Live rocket launch


Recommended Posts

It did come down quite hard looking at that landing again. I could see a little "bounce" of the nosecone through the vapours.

I made a rocket like SN8 when I was about ten years old.  I can understand why SpaceX may be having a few problems today.  I had terrible trouble getting the tin foil to stick to the cardboard tube.

Not sure if anyone else interested in this sort of thing, but in about 30 mins there's a live launch here: http://www.ulalaunch.com/webcast.aspx  

I know this is a couple days ago now, but I thought I'd share this on here. On the second orbit of the Soyuz MS-18 launch I was able to listen in on the voice communication from the Russian cosmonauts

SN11 is up!

Aw pants! It's a repeat of SN10! Sorry folks - someone posted a fake  'live vid'

Ignore me

 

Admins - delete this if you want.

SN11 test flight is due this Wednesday 3pm central, probably 7/8pm UK.

Or it was last time I looked!

I thought I'd missed it, but luckily no - the next scheduled Boca Chica road closure and village evacuation (and therefore likely test flight) is now on Friday.

Looks like it might have been scrubbed for today?  Can't find any official confirmation though.

Yes, scrubbed until Monday.

Just the second stage de-orbiting in the wrong place. Apparently the re-entry burn didn't go quite right. Still, one less piece of space junk.

Many months ago, I was pretty skeptical and taking perverse delight in any failings, explosions, mishaps, etc. I can't say I'm a big fan of Mr Musk and then there's Starlink...

But now I'm really enthused about these recent attempts and will be egging it on via YouTube whenever it launches.

Successful launch, too much fog for the cameras to see but Spacex have a feed from inside and outside the rocket.

Relying on telemetry, belly flop in progress but no one can see it from ground cameras. Onboard cameras showing the bellyflop.

Major failure, it either exploded in mid air or hit the ground. Pieces flying about, no one knows what happened yet!

Probably easier to work out where it isn't :)
