(SpaceX)   SpaceX is breaking records lately. 3 flights in 31 hours; now they're launching 2 Galaxies on Falcon 9. With payload like that, imagine what Starship can haul. (Oh - I've just learned that these Galaxies are ComSats.) 10/06, UPDATE: Delayed until 7:06 PM ET Saturday   (spacex.com) divider line

Galaxy 33 and Galaxy 34; Northrop Grumman built satellites for C band clearing.

Booster is B1060.14.  Another booster joins the 14-mission club.

And if it goes off as planned, this will bring SpaceX's launch cadence for the year down to one mission every 6.06 days.

Put some 3D printers on the moon and test ways to turn regolith into a building medium with them.

I thought the Galaxies were on Orion's Belt?

So many launches.

It's cool to see SpaceX launching something other than Starlink or Crew Dragon.

Per Twitter, the next Intelsat launch in November is launching expendable to get more performance since those satellites are heavier.  It's been awhile since there was an expendable launch, intended or otherwise.

Am I the only one who likes launches that have an extremely dirty booster? I know it's just soot but there is something very industrial age about it. Like an old steam locomotive
 
2022-10-06 7:12:00 PM  
Nice to have the full runup to the launch instead of the Starlink abbreviated broadcast.

Weird that the Intelsat B-roll had a shot of SLS engines from the green run.

It's so weird how this promotion video is trying to add an artistic and humanitarian  view to mainstream media excess

Abort.

Abort!

whidbey: bingethinker: TheMysteriousStranger: bingethinker: whidbey: Musk is a chump.  Don't support his vanity ventures.

This "vanity venture" has launched more rockets this year than everybody else on the planet combined.

So don't be a chump. Don't parrot lame anti-Musk BS.

What is it about Musk? We got people who will take a bullet for him and will defends his many idiotic statements. And we got people who wish to deny that he ever accomplished anything.

Not the chump here.   And recognizing this right wing piece of shiat for what he is isn't BS.You're backing the wrong horse, and you need to know about it.

No matter what you think of the guy, calling SpaceX a vanity venture is extremely stupid BS. Criticize him for the wrong things he's done or said, but not for this. And we "need to know about it"? Some shiathead comes into every launch thread lately to tell us. We've heard your one-note song. GFY

You might use your Fark Feature, because I won't shut up about this asshole until he's gone from the public radar.


Anyone remember the Fark politics threads of decades past?  This guy is trying to relive them

How long has it been since SpaceX had a non-weather related abort? I can't even remember.

2 or 3 launches ago. they fixed it and it sent the next day though.

There was one within the past few months.  There have been so many launches that I don't recall which one, just remember the discussion in the thread.

The Crew-5 launch got delayed to check some issues, but since it wasn't during the launch countdown, I wouldn't count that as a launch abort.

It's proof that reusable launchers are becoming the norm.
 
2022-10-07 6:40:14 PM  
The SpaceX webcast is saying October 8 at 4pm PDT now, so it looks like the launch got pushed back.

Came to see two Ford Galaxies on top of nine Ford Falcons. Leaving disappointed!

Just to have it recorded in the thread, the abort was due to a small helium leak, which apparently has been dealt with.

SpaceX media and their cameras sure know how to sell the spectacle of what is becoming routine.
