Now we have a goal :wink:


#3

Damn right! It looks like extra points in the scheme for the further along the roadmap we are by 2021… LETS GET BUILDING ROCKETS!


#4


Just in case someone wants to collaborate.


#6

I volunteer to do all the live streaming of our launches :smiley: And we can use our Race control as our mission command. Which gives us a bad-ass looking mission control.

Only need to convince my boss!:nerd_face::roll_eyes:

This is me just being excited about rocket launches😂

Surely with all the sea fairing types around here and with a nod to copenhagen suborbitals we can be launching at sea… SURELY then your boss will approve? @csete this is just how copsub AV control centre looks… yes?!? :slight_smile:


#8

That thing at the end of the stairs looks a lot like our EXPLORER 5075 Ka-band terminal!

That’s because it is :slight_smile:


#10

I’d be happy to provide the onboard video system for such launch vehicle, but I hope you know that you will need an investment k-times the prize money, where k is a number greater than or equal π, to pull this off?


#11

only π?! … But seriously… I think its good to dream and there’s a lot to learn and push on with… be really interested to see what could be done by us lot. :slight_smile:
