Space Exploration megathread

Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

Cool to see them finally actually working on that potential problem. Armageddon was ahead of its time.

Well, this is sad. They weren't planning on reusing it anyway, but it shows that it's still not 100% that a rocket that lands will eventually make it back safely.

Didn't know this:

Now it seems that the ocean once again got the better of the Falcon Heavy center core. SpaceX does have ways to secure the rockets it lands on drone ships, including a robot known as the “octagrabber” that latches on to the base of the boosters. But because the center core connects to two side boosters, it has a different design than a normal Falcon 9 booster. So the octagrabber cannot hold on to it in the same way.

Apparently, SpaceX’s octagrabber just needs some upgrades so that it can nab the center core, according to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. On Twitter, he noted that these attachments were not ready in time for last week’s landing. In the meantime, he noted that SpaceX may be able to save the engines of the core, though there was no mention of the rest of the booster.

Well, this sucks. Chances are, Crew Dragon is going to slip substantially.

Pretty good overview of what we know about the "anomaly" here.

https://arstechnica.com/science/2019...agon-accident/

Suffice it to say, this is a pretty major incident and will likely cause a huge shift in timelines. I doubt we'll see a crewed launch in 2019 at this point.

Obviously a major malfunction. But I'm "glad" it happened during a test.

Yep, that's the key. It sucks that there will be delays, but it'd suck far worse if they killed a couple guys.
