The original discussion is about expectations of New Glenn working right out of the box not just for launch but for landing.

Thereís no reason to think it will, and thereís rumors that Blue themselves arenít even going to try to land the first flight or two but instead splash them. Which is good. Blueís problem has long been hubris and perfectionism. Expecting to expend early flights is a change for the better. As long as they can iterate beyond that.

Actually, New Glenn has had a bunch of renderings and hardware spotted. Because itís too big to hide, and much of the work is being done in Florida where itís easy to spot stuff, unlike New Shepard which was done at an enormous private ranch in the more remote part of Texas.

Moderator:
Thread locked, for now, given several reports to moderators posted in less than 24 hours.

I'm busy elsewhere at the moment, but will return to examine posts made since the previous thread lock.

Other moderators are free to examine this thread in the meantime.

Edit:  I read every single post. 🙄 🤮 Thread trim ✨️ and choosing to keep the thread locked.  🔒

I also suggest NOT creating a thread 6 for several days.

<sarcasm>
Congratulations 🎊 👏 💐 🥳
</sarcasm>

I am also ticked off at the same usual suspects posting the same 🤡 💩 over and over and over, by those both vehemently pro and anti "My Favorite Talosian" and his merry band.

I don't administrate this forum.  I certainly would suggest "time outs" for for several of you, if I were asked.
