    Falcon Heavy

    This is a series of articles, photos, and videos about the evolution of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket, which may launch for the first time as early as November 2017. They are selected from the articles I have gathered and filed in recent years.

    This is by no means a complete record. It's a little thin in some places. But it's chronological, and I hope it serves as a halfway decent lead-in to the debut and further evolution of the Falcon Heavy.

    are they still talking about recovering the farings with micro RCS thrusters for orientation?

    i recall reading about that a while back... they made it sound as through it was a trivial thing to recover owing to how feather light they are with respect to the enormous surface area. it would be like recovering a block of styrofoam from suborbital flight... it just weighs so little that it slows down quickly in the upper atmosphere and never gets roasted.

    they were talking about just letting them fall into the ocean w.o just a tiny drogue chute and letting them wash up to shore.... what ever happened to that.
