Yeah I just looked it up its like how I imagined it would look.
It looks like an escalator should open out of the bottom with Bugs Bunny riding down, eating a space carrot.
There were a few concept giant SSTO plug nozzle vehicles that were proposed back in the 1960s such as Ithacus and Rombus. The plug nozzle doubled as a heat shield. I assume it used evaporative cooling.
Seeing a Gemini up close it is unbelievable that two people spent DAYS in that tiny little can, unable to even move. I imagine the three people on Voskhod must have been cramped beyond belief too. Takes a special sort of person to have the drive to still go through all that.
I thought Voskhod was only a 2-man capsule. Ah -- Voskhod 1 was 3 man; Voskhod 2 was 2 man. That's right. Only two manned flights IIRC.
It at least had a retro rocket so the crew could stay inside the pressure vessel until it landed. The Vostok cosmonauts had to bail out before it landed and parachute the rest of the way. I believe Gagarin landed in a potato field in his space suit and had to calm the local farmers and explain he needed to use their telephone.. It was was no mistake that Tereshkova was a skydiver.
Falcon Heavy launch today at 2235gmt. vehicle is being raised at pad 39a, now.
Are bookies taking bets on which part the anomaly will be in?
I'm going for B1052.1 side booster, during max Q.
the reentry are amazing to watch!
if you happen to come across a vid please post it @XCV330 , (or anyone)
i tried to clip the reentry from the iss hd live app but it was only buffering so i got nothing...
The Big Onion HLLV was to have a capsule shape
Did they recently have a launch and something went boom?
Saw something on the weekend and not sure if it was SpaceX or someone else.
3rd Falcon Heavy flight no earlier than June 24 carrying a few NASA payloads.
