Tory Bruno has said that there would be no redoing of qualification as the issue was due to workmanship and not a design issue.
Speaking of ATPs, do you have an update for us on the Cert-2 BE-4s? A few weeks ago you'd said they were in ATP in Texas, and I hope things are going well or went well.
Going well. Booster is built up and ready to receive them.
Any chance in the future the BE-4 will increase the chamber pressure and thrust as part of engine improvements? It is a larger engine than Raptor and Raptor has increased it's thrust and chamber pressure while actually being tested on rockets.
I stopped watching after the sixth time he sited the square footage. The bluster and unsupported superlatives are turble. Nice to get some views of hardware tho. Telling the viewer what the parts are wouldn’t hurt. So at 559,000 sqft, that’s one sqft per pound of thrust, no? I wonder how the other engine makers are doing by his metric?
Do you have any idea what's this?
