Now on the FAA ATC SCC Current Operations Plan Advisory. The start time matches the start time of the NGA Space Debris notice that is effectively a Rocket Launching notice. The end time matches the end time of the NGA Space Debris notice for S2 reentry.

Advanced Concepts / Re: Nuclear pulsed propulsion
« Last post by lamontagne on Today at 01:49 pm »
Perhaps wee can move back a little from the liquid explosives and start with the simpler plastic explosives?
These already seem to offer a very advantageous propulsion system.  Limit the number of variables.
On that basis we can look at the other questions from IE.
BTW Winterberg mentions superexplosives in some papers, anyone know what these are?

I guess we're proven PPR is too expensive.  The authors of PPR have said the same for PUFF, nuclear thermal, at least in basic configurations is not enough gain, so this 3F idea is perhaps the best way forward for pulsed propulsion?  There is MMO, Mini Mag Orion, but it seems to require a very large vehicle.
One interesting paralle with 3F is the collapsing metal liner, that seems even more complex in MMO, but that seems to have been sucessfully tested?

ISS Section / Re: Trash from the ISS may have hit a house in Florida

Seems to be more common these days, but there’s a lot more activity up there now too. This peice- attached, recently fell on top of a mountain near my house. Wonder if anyone can identify what it came from…

Just 11 hours after returning from the last mission, ASOG droneship is back to sea to support Starlink 6-60 on Monday morning.

Also out to sea this morning is Dragon recovery ship Shannon who looks to be getting some training in. Polaris dawn.... soon....
