[00:34] gonzo_p (~gonzo@ joined #highaltitude.
[00:35] <Ian_> It looks like 3 or 10 September, but not fixed yet. Best you email Steve. I keep looking for detail, but it's running late.
[00:36] <Ian_> The impression is that the cost will be considerably down on last year, but of course the travel will offset that.

[01:01] <DL7AD> Ian_: had a quick internet disconnection
[01:03] <ulfr> A very quick one.
[01:03] <ulfr> Some of my customers experienced the same today as I removed their fiber from my switch slot.
[01:03] <DL7AD> :D
[01:03] <ulfr> Maybe someone fiddling with fiber in your area DL7AD ?
[01:04] <DL7AD> no
[01:04] <ulfr> But then again, we were upgrading from 100Mbps to 1Gbps
[01:04] <ulfr> So they probably got slightly happier.
[01:04] <DL7AD> its the usual internet disconnection
[01:04] <ulfr> How annoying.
[01:04] <DL7AD> my provider disconnections me at night every 24h
[01:04] <DL7AD> in order to have to static ip address
[01:04] <ulfr> why?
[01:05] <DL7AD> *no
[01:05] <ulfr> oh
[01:05] <DL7AD> because they are selling static ip adresses
[01:05] <ulfr> silly
[01:05] <DL7AD> true
[01:05] <ulfr> We prefer to keep our customers at statics
[01:06] <DL7AD> okay. lets implement the ublox max6g now
[01:06] <DL7AD> found about 10 of the max6g in my shelf
[01:07] <DL7AD> :D
[01:07] <DL7AD> the only problem ist, that they're not completely software compatible to the max7

[12:09] <adamgreig> JonnyAlpha: right, the google group is actually an email list, so every message is emailed to about 1000 people
[12:09] <daveake> yeah nice views here, but I'd have thought that the "spaaaace" (not really) images would impress them more

[12:16] <daveake> yeah, I guessed that had happened when the pix stopped after burst
[12:16] <daveake> A good reminder about making the thing more robust :/
[12:16] <swaledale> i decided against trying to track it from my flight home :)
[12:17] <daveake> ha
[12:18] <swaledale> ive noticed people tend to get edgy on flights when you bring up lines of code and satellite pics on your laptop
[12:18] <JonnyAlpha> I was doing some calculation with the club kids - re chutes and balloons. With a 750g payload we calculated Hywoee 800 and a Rocketman 4ft and just under 3cu m helium?
[12:18] <JonnyAlpha> Aiming for 30,000m
[12:19] <JonnyAlpha> Hwoyee DOH!
[12:26] <number10> lots of woo with that one as it was 750g
[12:37] <daveake> That is heavy
[12:38] <swaledale> daveake what's been the total weight using the pizero setup?
[12:38] <daveake> My first Pi flight was heavy - not just the Pi and a shedload of batteries, but Upu had a GoPro/AVR payload, and I think we had a backup tracker too. That one was under a 1200g balloon but still got to just under 40km
[12:38] <daveake> 120g
[12:39] <daveake> Could get that down by removing the SMA plugs/sockets and direct soldering coax
[12:39] <swaledale> 120g is pretty slim already, decent reduction in balloon size/gas use maybe
[12:39] <daveake> Still wasn't going to beat number10's record if I had
[12:39] <SpacenearUS> New position from 03SKIPI after 036 days silence - 12http://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=SKIPI
[12:40] <daveake> Yeah at 120g you can get a decent altitude with a small balloon
[12:40] <swaledale> which did you use yesterday?
[12:41] <daveake> A 500g would get to about 30km
[12:41] <daveake> Yesterday was a Hwoyee 1600
[12:41] <fsphil> I've never gotten something above the magical 40km
[12:42] <swaledale> and a 1600 that didnt burst early :)
[12:42] <daveake> They usually don't
[12:42] <JonnyAlpha> fsphil: a bit like the sound barrier
[12:42] <daveake> I flew an old one
[12:42] <daveake> from when you got lucky or didn't
[12:42] <swaledale> yeah u said, old batch with pot luck issues
[12:42] <daveake> yup
[12:42] <fsphil> added woo
[12:42] <JonnyAlpha> I had a logitech C270 in the box that still needed to be dismantled
[12:43] <daveake> average woo for the batch, but concentrated locally
[12:44] <JonnyAlpha> I was going to have a Pi Camera pointing out of the side of the payload and the web cam doing selfies towards the ground?

[12:46] <daveake> Well the known recipe is H2 + 1600g Hwoyee + lightest payload you can make + luck
[12:46] <JonnyAlpha> daveake: The balloon calculator does seem to over egg it a bit, Sue Grey mentioned she used a 350 balloon? with quite a heavy payload and did quite well?
[12:47] <swaledale> yeah i guess 'nailing it' is reducing the luck needed (altho never removing of course)
[12:47] <daveake> The CUSF calculator uses the manufacturer's figures for burst diameter; reality and Hwoyee figures never seem to match
[12:47] <swaledale> it would be good to measure burst diameter
[12:47] <mfa298> for record breaking altitudes you might also need a time machine to get Hwoyee 1600 with special woo
[12:48] <daveake> Steve's balloon page has alternate burst diameters based on experience
[12:48] <JonnyAlpha> daveake: @ RandomEngineering?
[12:48] <daveake> yes
[12:49] <daveake> I use his when I'm flying Hwoyees

[12:49] <daveake> Or just add 1-2km to the CUSF figure
[12:50] <JonnyAlpha> Thats the one we were using, just re-ran it, Hwoyee 500, 750g, ascent 5m/s (is that were I am going wrong), gets me to 28784m
[12:50] <swaledale> was doing some predictions earlier and one of them had me landing almost in your back garden daveake
[12:51] <daveake> I once aimed for my old house (from my current one). Missed by 2 miles.
[12:52] <swaledale> excellent! this had it heading heading west for a change
[12:53] <JonnyAlpha> Should I put in a lower ascent rate when calculating balloon sizes? For parachutes I read between 3.5 and 4.5m/s decent?
[12:54] <edmoore> 5m/s is fine on descent
[12:54] <edmoore> 5 is fine for ascent too
[12:55] <edmoore> if at the design stage, i would shoot for 5/5
[12:55] <edmoore> you can always tweak the fill for faster/slower as the launch date approaches and you can see what the winds are doing
[12:57] <adamgreig> you can put custom burst diameters into the cusf calculator, for what it's worth
[12:58] <JonnyAlpha> WIth 750g a 3ft chute gives me 4.81m/s descent.

[13:06] <edmoore> how are you calculating that?

[13:07] <JonnyAlpha> http://randomaerospace.com/Random_Aerospace/Parachutes.html
[13:07] <JonnyAlpha> http://randomaerospace.com/Random_Aerospace/Balloons.html
[13:10] <edmoore> that doesn't say what drag coefficient it uses
[13:10] <edmoore> i shall work it out 1 sec
[13:10] <edmoore> right
[13:10] <edmoore> Cd = 1
[13:10] <edmoore> that's a bit high
[13:12] <JonnyAlpha> When I use the chute calculator you just select the chute and the Cd is entered automatically. 3ft Rocketman has a drag Cd = 0.526
[13:12] <edmoore> but that chute is still ok if you multiply the speed by sqrt(1/0.75)
[13:12] <edmoore> which is the correction factor to adjust Cd to e better value
[13:13] <fsphil> huh, sibot's MIA
[13:13] <edmoore> oh wait
[13:13] <edmoore> sorry
[13:13] <edmoore> i misread
[13:13] <JonnyAlpha> edmoore: never heard of sqrt but I understand ish
[13:13] <edmoore> square root
[13:13] <edmoore> but ignore me
[13:14] <edmoore> i misread steve's thing
[13:14] <JonnyAlpha> Say what?
[13:14] <JonnyAlpha> Do you mean you missread the Cd for the chute?
[13:15] <edmoore> yes
[13:15] <edmoore> i want to know what the assumed Cd value for the rocketman chute is, basically
[13:16] <JonnyAlpha> So in summary, if I do have a payload of 750g then a 3ft Rocketman with a descent rate of 4.81m/s is OK?
[13:16] <edmoore> yes
[13:17] <edmoore> probably
[13:17] <edmoore> go with it
[13:17] <edmoore> my concerns are academic atm
[13:17] <edmoore> keep forging ahead
[13:17] <JonnyAlpha> Also I put in a lower ascent rate e.g. 4m/s I achieved a higher altitude? So less gas?
[13:17] <edmoore> yes
[13:19] <edmoore> makes sense?
[13:20] <edmoore> if not grab a cuppa and we'll go over why it makes sense

[13:21] <JonnyAlpha> A Hwoyee 350 with a payload of 750g, with 1.26cu m of helium will achieve a ascent rate of 3m/s and altitude of 27696m (not quite high enough but I see the logic, less gas more room to expand?)
[13:21] tweetBot (~nodebot@philcrump.co.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[13:21] <edmoore> yes that's the logic
[13:21] <JonnyAlpha> A little slow?
[13:21] <edmoore> balloon has a fixed burst size
[13:21] <edmoore> yeah a bit slow
[13:22] <edmoore> i'd shoot for 5
[13:23] <edmoore> you don't have to hit 30km on the nose, you could just get a 1200g balloon and loads of gas and completely nail 30km and salute it as you whizz past
[13:23] <edmoore> on the way to 36km
[13:23] <edmoore> at 6m/s
[13:24] <JonnyAlpha> Ha ha - limited budget, Ill aim for 5 with a ighter payload to use a 350 or 500 :-)
[13:24] <edmoore> fair enough
[13:24] <edmoore> where are you launching from?
[13:24] <swaledale> ye from what ive learned on here, better to give it more gas and go quicker if altitude barrier is important, to make sure it makes it

[19:38] <fsphil> I bounced through a few online ones when making my board
[19:39] <AndyEsser> with the decent kit I saw at Bangor today (btw - they're interesting in SatNOGS so hoping they'll also stick a 434 Mhz Antenna - and maybe steerable yagi - any maybe LORA stuff on the roof)
[19:39] <AndyEsser> I need to just get the PCBs ordered and done - then when I next have a free Friday can solder, program and test 10 trackers :)
[19:46] <Lunar_Lander> AndyEsser, do you know the videos by chris gammell?
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> they are a quite good way to get started
[19:47] <Lunar_Lander> also not too long iirc
[19:48] <AndyEsser> cheers
[19:48] <AndyEsser> will dig them out tomorrow
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[19:48] <AndyEsser> also, really want to fit everything on a 50mm * 50mm board... so might have to shed some things :(
[19:48] <Lunar_Lander> like all flight computer components?
[19:49] <fsphil> I managed 50x30 :) though mine is not a flight board, no gps
[19:50] <AndyEsser> GPS, MCU, TX is minimum
[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> it could be feasible
[19:50] <AndyEsser> but I also have: SD Card, RTC, Backup battery, LiPo Charging system, TTL-USB...
[19:50] <Lunar_Lander> yea

[19:51] <AndyEsser> mfa298: yea, thinking I'll put a stackable header of some sort for Power + I2C bus anyway, so I can always extend if I want to
[19:51] <AndyEsser> seems a shame to lose the stuff above
[19:51] <AndyEsser> that's what I wanted as my "minimum"
[19:52] <AndyEsser> will see when I start t olayout

[19:53] <SA6BSS-Mike> there will always be pcb v2 :)
[19:53] <AndyEsser> Yep :)
[19:53] <AndyEsser> when I move to the ARM chips :)
[19:53] <fsphil> I added loads of headers that I probably didn't need, but they've proved handy for debugging and testing
[19:54] <fsphil> LEDs turned out to be too bright too

[19:59] <mfa298> I wonder if you could sensibly / safely use a laser cutter on polystyrene, that would let AndyEsser use fun toys to build a suitable payload box.
[20:00] <AndyEsser> it can cut certain types of foam
[20:01] <fsphil> I've wondered about using a router
[20:01] <mfa298> There are some things you're not supposed to cut on them as they give off nasty gases (nasty for the machien as well as humans)

[20:15] <Upu> thanks for the notice Lunar_Lander I'll prepare the troops
[20:15] <AndyEsser> Upu: good - :)
[20:15] <AndyEsser> I imagine getting very annoyed when it comes to soldering these boards
[20:15] <AndyEsser> speaking of which
[20:15] <sirus> Geoff-G8DHE-M: weirdly my flight is not in that list ( http://tracker.habhub.org/#!mt=roadmap&mz=15&qm=3_days&mc=35.11181,-114.77343&f=K7SDV ) also strange data point from the past showed up
[20:15] <Upu> Well just have some desolder braid to hand
[20:15] <Upu> invaluble
[20:15] <AndyEsser> how do you manage to solder a board with components on both sides?
[20:15] <fsphil> the thinner braid
[20:15] <Upu> solder one side
[20:15] <Upu> turn it over
[20:16] <Upu> solder the other ?
[20:16] <AndyEsser> in a reflow oven?
[20:16] <fsphil> I bought some recently and accidenlty got 1.4mm stuff
[20:16] <AndyEsser> not hand soldering these
[20:16] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> sirus, if it was APRS it doesn't touch Habitat merely displayed on spacenear.us
[20:16] <Upu> well you don't really
[20:16] <sirus> ahhhh
[20:16] <Upu> but you glue the components on
[20:16] <Lunar_Lander> :)
[20:16] <fsphil> try to keep the bottom of the pcb for mostly ground plane
[20:16] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> you need to generate payload and flight docs for Habitats attention
[20:16] <Upu> I've avoided any dual sided stuff for production
[20:16] <Upu> so far...
[20:16] <AndyEsser> fsphil: was hoping I could hit my 50*50 by having SD Card + power and USB on one side, and the rest on the other ;)
[20:17] <Lunar_Lander> Upu, I tried to use a vaisala QFH antenna with my ublox but one day it went quite well, getting lock within 3 minutes, the next day it didn't get it after well over 30 mins of waiting
[20:17] <fsphil> oh, a few parts like that will be fine
[20:17] <AndyEsser> SD card and backup battery were always going to be underside, but those take screws at least ;)
[20:17] <fsphil> but if you keep the fiddly parts on top, reflow those
[20:17] <fsphil> and hand solder the parts on the bottom
[20:17] <AndyEsser> (by power and USB - I don't mean the connectors - I mean the ICs for it all as well)
[20:17] <AndyEsser> hmm k
[20:17] <AndyEsser> well, will just have to see how things go when I get around to laying it out
[20:17] <AndyEsser> :)
[20:18] <fsphil> best not to. future you will hate current you
[20:18] <AndyEsser> hehe
[20:18] <AndyEsser> all versions of me hate all versions of me :)
[20:18] <sirus> Our go pros froze right when all sound drops out :( still got some great footage and will be building some powered heaters I think
[20:18] <AndyEsser> fine... will do the layout this weekend and see
[20:19] <fsphil> yeah you might still manage it
[20:19] <AndyEsser> and then order the rest of the components for prototyping, and if it all behaves - will send it off to China to get made :)
[20:19] <fsphil> I messed around with the layout for ages. probably more than I needed to
[20:19] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> sirus what temperatures or was it battery failure ?
[20:19] <AndyEsser> fsphil: linky?
[20:19] <fsphil> of the board?
[20:20] <AndyEsser> yarp
[20:21] <fsphil> http://gerblook.org/pcb/UkGt9jhK6QnR2SYFuG6aRb
[20:21] <AndyEsser> loadsa space!
[20:21] <AndyEsser> what's U3?
[20:22] <fsphil> rfm95w
[20:22] <fsphil> radio
[20:22] <AndyEsser> ah
[20:22] <AndyEsser> better size than the MTX by the looks of things
[20:22] <sirus> Geoff-G8DHE-M: Will do full data dumps when I get back to Seattle, there were the internal batteries and an external powerbank, powerbank never shut off.
[20:22] <fsphil> yeah it's tiny
[20:23] <sirus> no lens fogging which was awesome though! should have some rad 4k footage to share from 3 perspectives
[20:23] <fsphil> I'll make the USB pads a bit longer next time, to make it easier to rework them
[20:23] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> did you use the cases for the gopro?, in which case no cases!
[20:23] <sirus> No cases
[20:23] <fsphil> my first attempt had too much solder paste, and it all bridged
[20:24] <sirus> milled out gopro shaped holes in 1" pink foam but didn't put a backing on it as I figured they would self heat (fuckers get super hot shooting 4k)
[20:25] <fsphil> it's usually the case which fogs up
[20:25] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> yes in low pressure it suprises people!
[20:25] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> so it was the lens itself? Had it been changed ?
[20:26] <fsphil> AndyEsser: the MTX will be easier to use. if I was building a flight computer, I'd probably stick with one of those
[20:26] <Lunar_Lander> mtx is quite nice
[20:27] <fsphil> it's through hole too, so something you can consider putting on the bottom of the board
[20:28] <sirus> Geoff-G8DHE-M: didn't change lens out, didn't use any antifog, didn't do a nitrogen diffusion, it just "worked" thx dry nevada!
[20:28] <sirus> Heres how the gopros were mounted https://imgur.com/a/1xbEJ
[20:28] <sirus> will add electric heaters to the backs next time
[20:29] <fsphil> it's unlikely they got cold
[20:29] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> suprised then its not normally a problem, unless moisture has been allowed into the lens itself ?
[20:29] <sirus> They all failed at different times too, first the front, then the back, and the bottom last.
[20:30] <fsphil> they might have overheated
[20:30] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Do you know trhe external temp ?
[20:30] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> ah failed or fogged up ?
[20:31] <sirus> Thats a good point on the overheating
[20:31] <fsphil> the air might be cold but it's very thin
[20:31] <sirus> they failed as in stopped recording and were off when we cracked the case on landing
[20:32] <fsphil> where the batteries fine after landing?
[20:32] <AndyEsser> fsphil: Yea - I ahve an MTX here that I use for prototyping - simple enough to work with - just huge
[20:32] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Ah right yes overhlity then!eating is a distinct possib
[20:32] <AndyEsser> err
[20:32] <fsphil> typing failure lol
[20:32] <sirus> fsphil: yeah they were fine and powered up just fine, they were at 100% as the external battery pack never died
[20:32] <AndyEsser> Checksum Failure
[20:32] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> humm yes control codes!
[20:33] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> comes from overheating when typing ;-)
[20:33] <AndyEsser> hehe, saw a car on the drive this morning whose reg plate ended in UDP
[20:33] <AndyEsser> turned the passenger in the car
[20:33] <AndyEsser> "Not sure whether he'll get to his destination or not"
[20:33] <AndyEsser> Was so happy I was in the car with someone geeky who laughed :)
[20:33] <Lunar_Lander> XD
[20:33] <sirus> hehe
[20:34] <fsphil> lol
[20:34] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Maybe the fogging was smoke ;-)
[20:35] <sirus> Geoff-G8DHE-M: I didn't have any fogging, I was super happy about that part.
[20:36] <SpacenearUS> New vehicle on the map: 03SP9UOB-rs41 - 12http://tracker.habhub.org/#!qm=All&q=SP9UOB-rs41
[20:36] <Geoff-G8DHE-M> Ah miss read the bit about NO fogging!
[20:38] <sirus> We attempted to fly an iridium 9505A for some internet connectivity but I couldn't get it working in time, wvdial connects and pppd takes over, I get like 3 pings out and then the connection dies and I have to redial the directinternet gateway
[20:38] <sirus> If I am able to get the pings out at all
[20:39] <fsphil> wvdial, blast from the past that

[21:31] <AndyEsser> people watching SpaceX launch? http://www.spacex.com/webcast
[21:35] <fsphil> nice weather
[21:36] <AndyEsser> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBYC4f79iXc
[21:36] <AndyEsser> probably better stream
[21:36] <fsphil> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPYOtCFSLKw
[21:36] <fsphil> technical webcast, no presenters
[21:37] <AndyEsser> I like the presenters
[21:38] <daveake> I like that big bug
[21:39] <fsphil> wheeeeeeeeee
[21:40] <AndyEsser> whoosh
[21:42] <fsphil> wonder if that was one of the recovered first stages
[21:42] <AndyEsser> no
[21:42] <AndyEsser> those 3 are still in the hangers
[21:42] <AndyEsser> #1 is going to be displayed outside HQ
[21:42] <AndyEsser> #2 is used for tests
[21:42] <fsphil> oh stage 1 video from orbit
[21:42] <AndyEsser> they're planning on re-using #3 later this year
[21:42] <fsphil> ah
[21:43] <AndyEsser> (was mentioned earlier in the stream)
[21:43] <Lunar_Lander> 3?
[21:44] <fsphil> if it lands...
[21:44] <Lunar_Lander> do they have three successful landings already?
[21:44] <Lunar_Lander> ah
[21:44] <AndyEsser> yes
[21:44] <fsphil> well, the landing part is pretty certain
[21:44] <AndyEsser> fsphil: don't jinx it ;)
[21:44] <AndyEsser> only done it once from GTO
[21:44] <fsphil> oh it's definitly landing
[21:44] <fsphil> just how softly remains to be seen :)
[21:44] <fsphil> oh man that video is great
[21:45] <AndyEsser> haha
[21:45] <fsphil> you can really see the ground coming up to meet it
[21:45] <fsphil> I wonder if they'll be friends
[21:45] <lz1dev> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPYOtCFSLKw
[21:45] <lz1dev> technical stream has s1 camera
[21:45] <lz1dev> as it descending
[21:45] <fsphil> video of the restart
[21:46] <AndyEsser> is the fin on fire?
[21:46] <fsphil> camera getting dirty
[21:46] <daveake> ah cool like this
[21:46] <fsphil> and lost the video
[21:46] <fsphil> that was very cool while it lasted
[21:46] <daveake> stupid gopro case
[21:47] <lz1dev> clean air ;)
[21:47] <fsphil> lol
[21:47] <fsphil> eeeee
[21:47] <fsphil> c'mon
[21:47] <Vaizki_> spacex putting one down on the ship again?
[21:47] <fsphil> hah
[21:47] <fsphil> lol
[21:47] <Vaizki_> hehe
[21:47] <AndyEsser> nice
[21:48] <fsphil> success
[21:48] <AndyEsser> Vaizki_: yea
[21:48] <Lunar_Lander> YAY!!!!
[21:48] <AndyEsser> third time now
[21:48] <Vaizki_> damn
[21:48] <lz1dev> AndyEsser: 4th
[21:48] <fsphil> that seemed to come in sideways really quickly
[21:48] <AndyEsser> lz1dev: 3rd on drone
[21:48] <AndyEsser> 4th landing in total
[21:48] <daveake> wow
[21:48] <lz1dev> man i miss that long range view
[21:48] <Vaizki_> that was quick and assertive
[21:48] <lz1dev> its almost like cgi from futuristic movie
[21:49] <fsphil> no video from anything now
[21:49] <Lunar_Lander> hm
[21:49] <fsphil> telemetry not updating either
[21:49] <Lunar_Lander> wasn't it first landing orbcomm 2 and then second landing was some time ago and this is the third?
[21:50] <fsphil> nah, defintily no.4
[21:50] <AndyEsser> no they did a third last week, or fairly recently
[21:50] <fsphil> first on land, then one on the boat
[21:50] <Lunar_Lander> oh
[21:50] <Vaizki_> so routine now
[21:50] <fsphil> then a night time boat one
[21:50] <fsphil> and one after that iirc
[21:50] <fsphil> yeah this one
[21:50] <fsphil> duh
[21:50] <Vaizki_> have they released any info on how reusable are those first stages really?
[21:51] <Lunar_Lander> ah JCSAT-14?
[21:51] <AndyEsser> Vaizki_: planning on reusing the #3 landing one later this year
[21:51] <fsphil> all gone quiet on the stream still
[21:51] <AndyEsser> although said most of the components are actually already recertified for launch
[21:51] <fsphil> oh, LOS is expected
[21:52] <Vaizki_> AndyEsser: mmmm nice
[21:53] <AndyEsser> not planning on reflying #1 and #2 though
[21:53] <fsphil> it will be seriously impressive if they manage to do all three of these on the big heavy launch
[21:53] LazyLeopard (~irc-clien@chocky.lazyleopard.org.uk) joined #highaltitude.
[21:54] <fsphil> doesn't take these things long to cross the atlantic
[21:56] drsnik (~drsnik@gate3.ima.cz) joined #highaltitude.
[21:57] <SpeedEvil> Arguably five of the last six successfull if they had redesigned the legs.
[21:57] <SpeedEvil> which is really quite impressive indeed.
[21:57] <fsphil> yeah that one that landed fine but fell over
[21:58] <fsphil> that was annoying
[21:58] <SpeedEvil> Tehre was an earlier 'bunny hop' then fall over.
[21:58] <SpeedEvil> But that was going a fair bit faster horizontally.
[22:00] <arjunnaha> Has anyone heard from David Miller recently, I emailed a number of weeks to ask about a potential launch location. While I appreciate that he is quite busy, I don't want a situation where the day before the launch, I got an email saying that we were too close to Gatwick.
[22:00] <daveake> Well yes, he's around of course otherwise this week's launches wouldn't have happened
[22:02] <arjunnaha> Hmm, I'll have to try ringing him again on Monday, he's probably driven up the wall with me trying to contact him lol
[22:02] <AndyEsser> Monday is a Bank Holiday
[22:03] <AndyEsser> don't phone on Monday
[22:03] <arjunnaha> I forgot!
[22:03] <fsphil> yay day off
[22:03] Action: fsphil makes a big list of plans to not do
[22:03] <AndyEsser> :)
[22:04] <arjunnaha> We get a week off 😛
[22:04] <fsphil> would be nice
[22:05] <arjunnaha> UK education system ftw
[22:06] <fsphil> video back
[22:06] <fsphil> looks like they've got hailstones in space
[22:06] <AndyEsser> always looks like it's in a blizzard
[22:07] <fsphil> NICE
[22:07] <AndyEsser> stop using Imperial...
[22:07] <AndyEsser> *sigh*
[22:07] <AndyEsser> The payload is 3000kg
[22:07] <AndyEsser> the engine can give 210000lbs
[22:07] <SIbot> In real units: 210000 lbs = 95254.3 kg

[22:12] Action: AndyEsser waves
[22:12] <fsphil> so, stage 2
[22:12] <fsphil> do they leave it up there?
[22:12] <AndyEsser> I guess so
[22:12] <AndyEsser> was just thinking that
[22:15] <russss> iirc, they aim to do a third burn to re-enter the second stage
[22:15] <fsphil> "OK I've released it. Guys? Hello?"
[22:16] <AndyEsser> poor S2
[22:16] <russss> but the GTO will decay to re-entry in about a year if that doesn't happen
[22:17] <russss> great landing. watched it from the pub.
[22:20] <Vaizki_> I knew they'd have a pub on that ship
[22:20] <Vaizki_> do you still have eyebrows?
[22:21] <russss> heh, I wish
