    why doesn't spacex just tweak dragon 2 + trunk as a moon lander? folding landing legs on the trunk, extra COPVs, even a rover in it :) those super Dracos should have enough thrust for ascend/descend. plus since those thrusters are high above ground it can lessen shooting those moon dust to orbit..

    I live about 30 miles from Wallops Flight Facility and I've seen several Orbital ATK launches as well as the LADEE (I believe that was the mission) launch at night and theyre all incredible from 30 miles away. saw the second stage of the LADEE launch from here. So cool

    Hi Tim, can you get access to the full booster camera footage after it separated from 2nd stage and post it. We couldn't see that in live video; I think the video would be cool because of the sparks.

  • Progje
    Progje 5 months ago

    lol again the feed went away... and suddenly the rocket is standing there. Still fake for me. And landing on a drone ship is the most logical solution so no one sees that it's fake.
    I already told, if they want to show us their things why not put a second ship that record it all. They can record a rocket that fails to land by a helocopter or whatever but a real landing rocket they never did. Makes you wonder. I don't say it's fake i just say what i think :)

    • Progje
      Progje 5 months ago

      @Everyday Astronaut 300 miles from the coast? because what i know is that the drone boat is 300 miles from it. So must be an amazing camera :) I also want one of those

    • Everyday Astronaut
      Everyday Astronaut  5 months ago

      So what about when it lands at land in front of hundreds of thousands of people who have uninterrupted video footage of it??? No helicopters there...

    • Progje
      Progje 5 months ago

      @Everyday Astronaut did you also see that i wrote: "' They can record a rocket that fails to land by a helocopter or whatever but a real landing rocket they never did" which means that we did see plumit a failed rocket.. but never see one actually landing. Thats what i mean, no offense whatsoever, your stream i like tho. This is just what people think.

    • Everyday Astronaut
      Everyday Astronaut  5 months ago

      So have you ever looked for the other footage? Have you considered the complications of doing a stable livestream in the middle of the ocean while a rocket plummets your satellite uplink? Apparently you haven’t looked too long because there are PLENTY of shots of SpaceX landing that they upload later. Unless of course you think that’s CGI and that they couldn’t for some reason punch that in during the live stream. Every time they’re like “dang it. I forgot to punch in that CGI footage we have 😰”

  • Daniel Black

    How do the buildings survive that close to the launch pad? Seems like they would be destroyed from sound energy alone...?

    • Daniel Black
      Daniel Black 5 months ago

      @Everyday Astronaut Yeah, I'm familiar with the process, but still pretty ballsy to put a building ~100ft from a controlled explosion... See 21:40 I'm not qualified, however, to say what too close may be. But, the engineer in me says "hell no"!

    • Everyday Astronaut
      Everyday Astronaut  5 months ago

      That’s why there’s thousands of gallons of water poured onto the pad during launch for sound suppression. Well really more to protect the rocket itself but still cool

    I always thought the shuttle was a bad idea due to the fact that the crew sits NEXT to the rockets that are burning thousands of pounds of fuel with no plan or chance of escape in case of rocket booster failure (shuttle columbas). When you do make rockets the old fashion way, the vertical way with crew on top of the rocket, failures don't necessarily spell the end of the crew (soyuz).

    Really fun seeing your smile when you see the Everyday Astronaut sticker on the computer 😁👍
    BTW. Sweden have "landed" (aka. crashed) a spacecraft on the moon. SSC (Swedish Space Corp.) made the SMART-1 mission in 2006 that orbited the moon for a while and ended by crashing into the moon, to study the dust that was ejected. I haven't looked into the engine of this mission but I assume they use a similar strategy with a low power (but high efficiency) Xenon ion engine. But it took about a year to get to the moon for SMART-1 so this spacecraft is either much lighter or have a more powerful engine, or higher start velocity.

    It seems as though SpaceX’s webcast was time delayed by about 1:30. Tim, you reacted the same way I did at about T -1:30 when you could hear the rocket fire but not see it on screen. Given that there was a USAF payload on board, do you think that they were required to do a time delay?

    • Robinson Joe
      Robinson Joe 5 months ago

      @DieselDoug77 That all depends on the connection and how it's routed but you may be right. I watch my hockey games streaming and they are always about 1-2 minutes behind though.

    • DieselDoug77
      DieselDoug77 5 months ago

      This was not lag. Lag is usually only a few seconds. We’re talking close to a minute and a half. You can clearly hear something in the audio which sounds like the rockets lighting up. SpaceX always has open mics picking up employees’ cheers at the headquarters. This sounds almost like the mic picks up audio from a live feed in the control room, which is in the background of SpaceX’s broadcast “studio”. I realize that the desk/stage is just an elevated platform within the factory that provides a nice backdrop for the presenters. It is very prominent if you know when and what to listen for.
      I just rewatched SpaceX’s webcast and at T-1:28 you can clearly and LOUDLY hear the rocket engines light up...

    • Robinson Joe

      Wait, was that in response to me or to gasgasLex? Because, yes, I'm 100% on your side and I hope it didn't sound like I'm snickering at education or being culturally insensitive. Quite the opposite. I'm a college drop out myself and am FULLY aware of the importance and also the struggles of education.

    • Everyday Astronaut
      Everyday Astronaut  6 months ago +1

      Two things. First off, not knowing about a weird phenomenon about rockets doesn’t make someone uneducated or unintelligent. There are always people who pop in who have never watched a launch before. And second, don’t be rude assuming it’s a region of people who would be uneducated. Fun fact. Only 30% of my audience is from the United States.

    Dear Tim, I appreciate your patience with people asking the same questions at every launch "There is smoke coming from the rocket" etc,etc, etc.
    But for the informed people following you, it can get irking hearing the same explanation. I don't want another explanation, I would like less old questions, and maybe, maybe less time answering them. But do as you see fit, I love your channel.

    • tubularap
      tubularap 6 months ago

      @Everyday Astronaut -- You said the right thing : "What brought you here ..."
      I learned a lot from you ... so I too was that novice happy to have an 'old' question answered for the first time.
      That is also why I like your channel, for your personality and attitude. How you keep your live-chats ethical clean, humane and focused on the pleasant sharing of info on a subject that captivates us all. So thank you for answering, Tim. Big fan from the Netherlands.

    • Everyday Astronaut
      Everyday Astronaut  6 months ago +3

      I totally understand and I don’t want to ostracize my core audience, but it’s also important to not lose touch on what brought you or someone else to my channel. It might be answering that question that you’ve “always had” if I see it pop up in the chat, it’s important to answer it because that’s what I can do live that SpaceX can’t do

    • Trev Simmons
      Trev Simmons 6 months ago

      ​@Teagan Moffatt NASA has wasted so much of US tax-payers money. Some of their 'success's' are based on fraud - take WMAP for instance - NASA claim to have pulled all the data from BENEATH the noise floor. Any electronics engineer who can use a spectrum analyser will choke on such a claim. Those with experience of medical scanners - very close to WMAP methodology - have to manipulate the local electrical environment to attempt recovery from noise - WMAP has no local environment - it's way out there and can't be accessed. Since failure is not an option, the data has to be faked to match the theory - which it magically did.

    • Teagan Moffatt
      Teagan Moffatt 6 months ago +1

      NASA can and has said why, they said it was because the winds blew off the Martian dirt better then they thought it would. Not disagreeing that NASA is a money pit but that money pit allowed all of this to happen in the first place and will be need for at least the next 20 years untill there is an economy in space. Also NASA does cutting edge research and development and pushed computers and medical devices ahead by years/decades.
