Space Exploration megathread

Since a number of cool things are happening in space exploration these days, we'll widen the scope of this thread a smidge. Conversation about all things space exploration are welcome, whether it be from NASA, SpaceX, ULA, Blue Origin, or anyone else. Chances are most of the discussion will still be about SpaceX since they love to make things public and fun, but nothing's off limits. I'll eventually get around to modifying the OP to include resources for other companies too, but in the meantime, feel free to post any cool stuff you run across.

I almost toyed with catching a last-minute flight to San Antonio and trying to catch SN9 this weekend. Talked myself out of it since there's not a lot to do there otherwise. Man, I'm ready for this COVID shit to go away.

I cancelled my planned road trip over the holidays. Considering a drive for SN15 or later if it's after February.

But the anticipated mission took a blow on Friday when SpaceX chief Elon Musk, 49, took to Twitter to announce two of the Starship's engines need replacement.

The world's richest man was asked by one SpaceX fan whether the company was still aiming at a weekend launch.

Mr Musk replied: "Two of the engines need slight repairs, so will be switched out."

Another tweet from Everyday Astronaut pointed out an engine swap on Starship's last iteration, SN8, caused a 26-day delay and the SN9 "might head home for a bit if they're replacing two"

Teams from NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) Program conducted a hot fire of the Artemis I core stage on Jan. 16 at NASA’s Stennis Space Center. All four RS-25 engines ignited successfully, but the test was stopped early after about a minute. At this point, the test was fully automated. During the firing, the onboard software acted appropriately and initiated a safe shutdown of the engines. During the test, the propellant tanks were pressurized, and this data will be valuable as the team plans the path forward. In coming days, engineers will continue to analyze data and will inspect the core stage and its four RS-25 engines to determine the next steps.
