my exhaustive research in rss/ro has led me to conclude that vulcan can put a fully fueled artemis II orion CSM into a 300x300 orbit with margin to spare. if artemis III is going to demonstrate docking with starship in LEO then that has some very interesting implications for the future of SLS.

17 tons of payload to LEO with a (eventually) reusable first stage. It's slightly taller and just a bit wider with comparable first stage thrust, so I think the isp on the Tianhou-12 engines is a bit less than the Merlon-1D's, but other than that it's about as close as you can get while having it be built by a different company in another country.

Although I think the purpose of TL-3H is different than FH. I believe TL-3H is all about heavy loads to LEO/SSO; they don't even mention GTO capability. FH was intended for sending stuff to GTO, and the FH payload adapter can't handle heavy payloads, no?

Florida man is always armed, but that's not the problem, the problem is the boat crew needs to check for hypergolic leaks from reentry before they can load the capsule on the barge, and some drunk redneck in his boat floating in between you and the capsule is a obstacle.

>> No.16137494

That's the point: both were (way, way) off nominal. It's possible that, with lower centers of mass or wider legs, they'd've managed to stay upright even after the failures. Similarly, HLS landing nominally isn't the problem; the problem is if there's some kind of failure that induces a tipping moment.

>Another unusual result from their tests was that sometimes the tested devices did not require a constant input of electrical charge to maintain their thrust. Given that the device already appears to violate the known laws of physics by creating thrust without propellant, this result even stumped Dr. Buhler and his team.

>“We can see some of these things sit on a scale for days, and if they still have charge in them, they are still producing thrust,” he told Ventura. “It’s very hard to reconcile, from a scientific point of view because it does seem to violate a lot of energy laws that we have.”

The Blue Origin lander is clearly a more grounded proposal so it's good for NASA to have as a backup. I still think the Blue origin one will ultiamtely land on the moon before Starship because of how less ambitious it is. It's a shame the blue one uses hydromeme because if it used methane then Starship tankers and the blue lander could perfectly compliment eachother. A starship tanker in low lunar orbit could provide enough fuel for many blue landings. Not to mention that hydromeme has the potential of setting the crew on fire due to how hard to handle it is.

Blue moon requires one refuelling trip and flies on a rocket thats already basically fully developed. It also has more margin for a funky landing due to being short. So theonly risk factor is the lander itself, even if New Glenn cant be reused it doesnt matter since there is a low number of flights per mission. Starship requies the development of a fully and rapidly reusable superheavy launch vehicle. Anything short of that means Starship HLS will be much more expensive than using an expendable lander and will ultimately make Artemis unaffordable. Not to mention that the actual landing thrusters are les mature in their development than the blue origin ones sine up until recently Musk was saying they would land on raptors

Buhler's theory seems to be based on somewhat known physics derived from years of experiments. This also expands on what Becker and Bhatt noticed with dielectric layering.

>> No.16138000

According to the co-author of the patent (Andrew "Drew" Aurigema), IVO have essentially copied their design, regardless of whatever theory IVO claims to be behind it. Drew is quite pleased by this, as it should also serve to validate their design. In any case, it's a form of Lafforgue thruster (based on electrostatic pressure) as demonstrated by Naudin over 20 years ago: http://jnaudin.free.fr/lfpt/index.html

More on electrostatic pressure: https://phys.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Electricity_and_Magnetism/Electromagnetics_and_Applications_(Staelin)/05%3A_Electromagnetic_Forces/5.05%3A_Electric_and_magnetic_pressure

The main issue with it is that an opposing "reaction" seems to either not exist, or is causing stress and ultimately breakdown in the dielectric (or is somehow pushing on spacetime itself).

You can, but the nozzle increases the amount of time the exhaust gas works against the body of the rocket, which greatly increases the amount of thrust per unit of propellant. Once the exhaust flow stops touching the rocket, it does nothing to make the rocket go.

Yes there would be more stagnation pressure loss. Although, having no convergent section has an advantage for very small thrusters. Because the vena contracta is smaller than the physical throat, you can get smaller thrusts for the same throat diameter without resorting to more expensive manufacturing techniques.

the exhaust gasses can only give kinetic energy to the rocket as long as they are touching it. If you were to shoot water straight out the bottom with no engine bell then it would be like throwing apples to gain momentum, but rocket exhaust primarily works through the massive expansion of the combustion products. They combust and expand so much that they push against the inside of the engine bell hard enough to displace the rocket upward. Once they are out of the bell then they are useless. That's why more efficient engines like RS-25 have a less visible plume
