May I be the first to request one?

1) General discussion (historic spaceflight)

2) POLL: Hypothetically revive which NASA HSF project?

3) If one unlikely way or another, NASA was to redo one HSF project that was cancelled in the past, which one would it be?

4)
-X30
-X33/Venturestar
-X38/CRV
-OSP
-Orion/Constellation

Probably some that have missed.  :-\

JIMO would have been the first proper spaceship.

Maybe something like this could be interesting...

1) not sure if it's best in the HLV, Space Policy, or General section

2) POLL: Launcher families and the first post-Apollo BEO HSF mission

3) Which launcher family/organization/country do you think will launch the heaviest portion of the first post-Apollo BEO HSF mission?

4) options

* SLS (maybe split into liquid/solid booster options?)

* ULA (Delta, Atlas, or derivative)

* SpaceX (Falcon or derivative)

* Russia

* China

* other US launcher family

* other non-US launcher family
Someone is wrong on the Internet.

Alternatively, it might be interesting to have the same set of options, but asking about the first post-Apollo surface HSF mission, or which family do you think will perform the greatest number of BEO missions between now and 2030 (or 2040).

I'll set that up later. As far as your second post, that just confused me ;D

I suspect this probably won't get taken, and if you can't Chris, please pm me and let me know

1)  Space Policy
2)  Settlement ultimatum poll
3)  If we could not get the US to commit, in law, to the idea of space settlement as the primary goal of National HSF programs (NASA and others) would you still want the US Government (including NASA) to engage in human spaceflight? 
4)  yes, no, undecided

Settlement as a goal
It's not democrats vs republicans, it's reality vs innumerate space cadet fantasy.

Seems fair to me! Got to get set up for a Chinese launch (ironically), but I'll get it on today.

1) Forum area:
Space Policy

2) Poll Thread Title:
Shuttle derived HLV options

3) Poll Question:
For Nasa's HLV (SLS ) what option would you like them to take?

4) Options:
1) SLS blocks I, IA, II as is

2) SLS block I, as is with SRB's and SSME's in prodution ready for flights after test flight(s), upgrade to be determined later

3) SLS block I with non streched core, 3 or 4 SSME's engine mount ( basically a Jupiter -130 Heavy ),  with SRB's and SSME in prodution ready for flight after test flight(s), upgrade to be determined later

4) SLS block I as is, change SRB replacement for advanced boosters for SLS IA to design engines that would work for advanced boosters or an all liquid powered commercial HLV. Design liquid engines first gives flex path to be used on either or both ( advanced booster or commercial liquid powered HLV ).

Single post only requested.

Canceled request for now.

1) Advanced Concepts

2) How much annual tonnage to justify mass transportation to orbit?

3) There has been much talk of methods of attaining orbit other than rockets and spaceplanes, such as space elevators, maglevs in vacuum, skyhooks, etc. to put payloads into orbit at a lower cost than rockets. Those other methods will require a certain amount of traffic in order to be economically competitive with rockets. What is that certain amount of traffic? In 2010, less than <1500 tons were put into orbit.

Rockets and spaceplanes will become more competitive with larger traffic into orbit. Less than half of the delta v can come from a rocket or hypersonic air breathing engine. Mass transportation system has to be buildable within the next 300 years.


4)

100,000 tons/year

1,000,000 tons/year

10,000,000 tons/year

100,000,000 tons/year

1,000,000,000 tons/year (~32 tons/second)

>1,000,000,000 tons/year

rockets/spaceplanes will always be cheaper

traffic to orbit will not exceed 100,000 tons/year for the next >300 years

Following a note by Lobo on the thread about Mr. Gingrich & how the candidates would be representing space, I request a poll on the following (assuming the front runners only):

Who do you feel would best serve the American Spaceflight effort (both manned and unmanned) as President in the next term:

1) Obama

2) Newt Gingrich

3) Mitt Romney

Could be very messy, and I really can't be bothered about stopping food fights, but let's go with Robert's poll. It'll be on Space Policy shortly.

Thanks Chris. Already looking quite interesting.

1) SpaceX
2) Number of flights in 2012
3) How many flights do you expect from SpaceX in 2012?
4) 1, 2, 3, 4

This subject is currently under debate in the SpaceX subforum.  SpaceX has indicated they want to have 4 flights of the Falcon 9 in 2012.  That could be 3 flights with Dragon at the Cape and 1 non-dragon flight from Vandenburg.  How many do you actually expect the company to achieve this year?

Another poll request:

1) SpaceX
2) Launch date of COTS 2/3
3) When do you think the actual launch date will be for the COTS 2/3 mission?
4) Late April, May, June-Aug, Late 2012, Not in 2012
