    What do you do for a living?

    I just started driving a semi for a company located next to O’Hare International outside Chicago. I mostly go to warehouses and machine shops. It’s my first job as a truck driver and luckily I don’t have to go over the road. I get paid more than I’ve ever been before and I get to be home every...

    Project SpaceX SuperHeavy

    Are SuperHeavy and Starship a full-on balloon-tank design requiring constant pressurization? Or are they structurally sound enough to support themselves when running on empty?

    Programming Question Python Question

    Addendum: I guess in some circumstances, it could be used as an in-sim tool for Orbiter as well. I just hadn't thought about that.

    Programming Question Python Question

    I was actually thinking about a stand-alone program/simulation-type thing outside of Orbiter. The user would select the type of launch vehicle they want, possibly change the type and number of engines on it (random customization), number of stages, payload weight, etc. and then just simulate...

    Programming Question Python Question

    I apologize of this is the wrong forum. Please feel free to move it to wherever is appropriate. I'm in the beginning stages of learning Python. I know that I could use it, along with something like PyQt to create a GUI, to create a program that takes user input about something like a rocket (or...

    Resolved Chance of re-enabling Tapatalk functionality?

    Because of my job as a patient transportation driver, I tend to use Tapatalk quite a bit. I've noticed that since the migration, it no longer works. I was just wondering if there are any plans to make it functional again. The error message I get is: "Server error occurred: 0 class...

    Launch News SpaceX DM-2 Launch Scheduled for May 27!

    What I meant by that was do they ride the ascent with their heads down towards earth, as was done with the shuttle, or head-up, meaning rotated 180* and the opposite of the shuttle attitude. I'm not stupid. I know they weren't just sitting there in chairs as if they were sitting in a room on...

    Does anyone know if it launched heads-up or heads-down? Or what the G-Profile and peak G was for a crewed mission? Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk

    News Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A320 flight PK8303 crash

    It appears that the aircraft touched down with the gear up. Both engines scrapped the runway. Contact happened almost/about halfway down the runway, which is over 11k feet long. They never contacted the ground to tell them they were attempting a gear-up landing. Emergency services were not...

    News Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A320 flight PK8303 crash

    I'm thinking they may have retracted gear for a go-around but did so too early. And then settled onto the runway. That could have damaged the engines enough for them to ingest debris from the cowling or just caused enough damage to cause them to quit. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk

    Problem I Could Really Use Some Guidance (NO PUN INTENDED)

    Thank you. That's a great way to look at it. I was just trying to do too much at one time. Basically drink from a fire hose. I'll slow down and take it in small steps. Hopefully I'll get there one day. Also, don't mind the rambling comments throughout. I was more than burnt out and with...

    Question Am I technically a German citizen?

    Wait, what? My mother was born in Germany in 1958. Came to the US when she was 5 or 6. I was her first born and the first from her side of the family born outside Germany. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk

    Request GUI Tool Request

    Wow. You've accomplished in like 2 days what I could not have done in month. What language is it in? As for your questions, I was thinking maybe split it up into sections. 1. Tank specifications 2. Rocket body/structure/skin itself. 2a - Are the tanks all internal? Is the rocket body itself...

    Request GUI Tool Request

    Thanks for the guidance. I knew in my head what I wanted I guess, but didn't really know how or where to start. I'll try to figure something out and put some things together. Off the top of my head, I was thinking something along the lines of i.e. selecting structural material, which would be...
