The webcast link

There is a chat room on the webcast for viewers to post comments. That might get pass on to the guest.


Note - Will be interesting on the interview with Tory Bruno, since the main TMRO host Benjamin Higginbotham works for the folks at Hawthorne. Ben is on twitter as @Bencredible

I just watched, good interview. I have to say that I think Tory comes over well, knows his stuff too.

Far more covered than I could capture; just a few points that stuck in my mind:

1. Two challenges for Vulcan discussed:
      - additive manufacture (as no history/knowledge base to draw on)
      - maintaining two vehicle designs until engine choice is made (although he said one deisgn is significantly ahead of the other)

2. He justified only recovering engines on S1 by saying that guaranteed it can be done on every flight, no matter how heavy the payload. So he claims that makes the economics work overall.

3. Good discussion on CISLunar1000, what it is, what may happen first etc
      - In response to a Q he sees asteroid prospecting in 5 - 10 years; mining 10 - 20

4. There are a couple of extra features?/capabilities? of Vulcan ULA haven't disclosed yet (no hints as to what they are)

IMHO worth watching (although regulars on this forum may not learn much new)

For things like this I excuse myself from that part of the show. Hence why you basically see me disappear.

That's a given from the past webcasts. The interesting part is who replace you as the interviewer.

Great show as usual.
