    I saw a lot of the crew dragon development over the years, but I was still amazed at how futuristic and cool it looked while they were flying the actual thing in the livestream. Not that other spacecraft like the Soyuz and ISS aren't crazy advanced looking, but they aren't anywhere near as sleek...

    A free dark style like this one would be nice in the meantime. https://xenforo.com/community/resources/shades-of-grey.5812/

    Looks good @c0ldshadow. Thanks. I'm liking the xenforo swap.

    Send me the list of labels you want, and I'll start counting them up Paul.

    Risk from a moron at a gun show?

    If you don't see an afterimage or have some sort of other vision issue, you should be fine. Even people that do get afterimages that last a few days/weeks can still turn out not to have permanent damage. Definitely a legally questionable and dumb salesperson. Probably not 3W either.

    What happend?

    That's kinda how it is I guess. Compared to years ago, it's a lot easier to get ahold of a wide variety of completed laser components for a lot cheaper rather than using the knowledge online to make stuff yourself. There's definitely something going on with the forum SEO though. I used to see...

    FS: Custom Laser Labels Available Again!

    Sorry for being MIA guys. I've been ridiculously busy with a lot of personal issues, but I've got a batch of these to do for myself soon, so I'm just going to put out a feeler if anybody wants in on it as well.

    Ushio Necsel 577nm 1W yellow

    Haha. I was supposed to be at Photonics West for an all expenses paid school trip, but I missed out due to personal issues last semester. They send a lot of SPIE student officers. It's really intended for industry insiders and technical experts though. Definitely would have wanted to see some...

    Well guys, it's 2018 which may very well be the year new manned American rockets begin flying astronauts to the ISS. Also, space tourism might become a thing.

    Well, Falcon Heavy is on the pad complete with its cherry red Tesla Roadster. Personally, I'd have offered to put whatever flat earthers decided would prove the Earth was flat and flown it. https://spaceflightnow.com/2017/12/28/falcon-heavy-raised-on-pad-39a-for-first-time/

    ColdHeat Solder irons

    Yeah, back on the ColdHeat, it'll totally toast smaller sensitive electronics if you aren't crazy careful. If you want a nice small, portable soldering iron, the TS100 can be had cheap occasionally if you can tolerate the slow boat from China. Just plug it into a USB powerbank and there you...

    Space Discussion Thread

    Speaking of that concept Paul Allen who funded SpaceShipOne just had his behemoth of a plane do its taxi tests. It's intended for exactly that purpose. Pretty crazy since it's the largest plane in existence. This sort of concept may very well be the most economical way of getting smaller...

    Space Discussion Thread

    Yeah. Pretty sure relight has been tested on almost every recent generation F9 from the launches I've watched. I do wonder how much higher the F9 first stage separation happens than the SS boosters now that I think about it. Both happen in the upper stratosphere iirc. I just want to see a...

    Yep. I know they've tested relighting on the second stage with F9, but it'd definitely be something else if they can recover it of heavy. Still don't know if that's going to be attempted on the upcoming launch or not. It'd definitely be a more revolutionary step since first stage recoveries in...

    I wonder if the Falcon Heavy is going to attempt a second stage recovery. While the first stage recovery is impressive and still a serious money saver, it's also not quite as necessary to use the thrusters. It'd be crazy to see a second stage booster make it back like the original plan though...
