      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Haaaaaaaaaaaa it's a scrub. Thanks for the BIG nothingburger, eh?

If you're not actually blaming Guitar for your disappointment, then maybe you should make that a bit clearer. Or shut the fuck up. Whichever.

If what they putting up there ain't open source for the betterment of all humanity the damage to the atmosphere that rocket does ain't worth the effort.

How's that?

Who gives a shit.

I want to know about the XB-37 Launches and tests.
I'm pissed that some rich immigrant gets more knowledge our our secret shit than a borne citizen.

Money talks and bullshit walks I guess.

But wait, Space X is  sponsored by The US Government ala Obama???

Huh?

That immigrant came here, created a bunch of jobs, and is helping us reduce our dependence on Russia (launch vehicles) and Middle Eastern oil (Tesla). Sounds like a pretty good win-win to me. Immigration is one of this country's secret weapons.

If it's true that Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful rocket ever launched my hat is off to EM and SpaceX. How many years did it take them to outpace the two giants of space exploration? Admittedly they stand on the shoulders of those before them, but still an awesome accomplishment, IMO.

I read somebody said Elon is a precious asset of the Human Race, how true.

Looking again at FH, it still looked small compared to the Apollo mission vehicles. The Saturn 5 made more than 7 million lbs of thrust. I misread the article, at 5.1 million lbs FH is the largest operational rocket. Still impressive.

Fill out your SF86 and get a sponsor, and you might get a chance to peek behind the curtain.

All that initial oomph still can't get much payload to a final orbit.  Needs a real upper stage, someday.

It's not all about thrust, it's also about burn time

Some cool video of the shuttle launch up to SRB separation. Still a long way from 18,000 miles per hour escape velocity. Mind boggling speed. 

It reminds me of ludicrous speed from spaceballs.
