Why? That would make no sense.


The wings were pointed really high, unlike any other plane I've seen.

It's not a conventional plane. It's a lifting body.

Blue Origin has tested its throttleable, restartable BE-3 hydrogen/oxygen rocket engine which will be used on both suborbital and orbital launchers currently in development for carrying astronauts, and which will be fully reusable (suborbital) and partially reusable (orbital).

NASA has selected SpaceX to lease its Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A, which has launched such historic missions as the first Saturn V flight (Apollo 4), and the final flight of the Space Shuttle (STS-135). NASA and SpaceX will now begin to negotiate the terms of the lease.

Some shiny new chrome on SS2 in its most recent powered flight yesterday.



Also, Orbital Sciences launched their Cygnus spacecraft towards the ISS on Thursday on its first operational cargo resupply mission for NASA's CRS program.

SpaceX's F9R development vehicle - a.k.a. Grasshopper 2 - has been observed at their McGregor, Texas rocket development facility. Unlike the previous Grasshopper, the new vehicle is representative of actual flight hardware, based on a Falcon 9 v1.1 first stage. Legs of that design will likely be flying on operational orbital missions within the next few months. Grasshopper 2 will perform early, low-altitude flight testing at McGregor, before moving to Spaceport America in New Mexico for high-speed, high-altitude testing which will more closely mimic the actual conditions the rocket stage will encounter on orbital missions.

So, that's the new Grasshopper on the right?

Why does the base look so scorched?

EDIT:
Cool to finally see those legs deployed! I couldn't figure them out from the F9R diagrams floating around the internet.

The videos that come out of this baby are going to be insane!!!

SpaceX has (finally!) released a video of a F9R static fire. They state that flight testing will begin in matter of weeks.

For some reason when I watch those SpaceX launch videos it feels like i'm watching an Orbiter video (but with realistic graphics). The way the camera moves feels very game/simulator-like.




I will be inactive on this forum for the time being. Might come back eventually

That'll be the Hexacopter they have the camera mounted to. Very smooth and fine movement control.
