Falcon Heavy?[edit]

Do you know anything about this launch? It claims on that page that it's scheduled for launch on a Falcon Heavy, but I don't see any evidence of that. — Gopher65talk 17:03, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

@Gopher65: I don't know too much off the top of my head, but I recalled (as I read your question) that I had seen that before, and may have even been the one to first add that to the article.
So I just clicked on the sources provided, the NASA one (currently citation no. 2) has a link to a pdf that says this: "The Green Propellant Infusion Mission is scheduled to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket in late 2015." However, I note that source is dated 2013, so it might be more correct to refer to it in the past tense, something like, "as of 2013, the Green Propellant Infusion Mission was scheduled to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket in late 2015." — and then, perhaps, follow it with an Update after template to signal that the claim is a bit out of date. Maybe that (now, historical) statement should be cited with the pdf, rather than the NASA page, as perhaps the NASA page has changed since it was added to the FH article as a source.
I don't have any idea if it is still scheduled to launch on a Falcon Heavy, nor if 2015 is still correct. Cheers. N2e (talk) 01:53, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
It's pretty unlikely that the second FH launch will happen in 2015, given that the first FH flight is NET second quarter 2015. So the past tense is probably appropriate in this case. — Gopher65talk 02:38, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
@Gopher65: I edited the article to reflect the time context of when the plan was correct as to a "late 2015" mission. Take a look and see what you think. N2e (talk) 23:33, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Government of Colorado[edit]

I don't mean to scare you off. I take your comment to mean you are dissatisfied with the government of Colorado article as is. Do you disagree with my response? Do you still hold your original opinion?

Would a wikitable of offices and a short description be a good alternative to a gallery? I am open to getting some new ideas, and I don't want to shut out other opinions or ideas by dominating too much. Int21h (talk) 02:38, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I'll respond on the GOC Talk page, to keep all conversation localized. N2e (talk) 04:59, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

WP:ECONOMICS[edit]

I noticed you were in the past an active contributor to WP:ECONOMICS. At the moment it seems rather inactive. Would you want to help me to make it more active again? NotYetAnotherEconomist (talk) 20:07, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

@NotYetAnotherEconomist:Willing to help, on some articles and topics; i.e., on some tributaries in the great wide river of Economics. I don't seem to find myself checking in over there very often, perhaps because so much in econ nowadays is economists writing paid policy briefs for political entities that want their issue to be provided some facade of economic cover. But I'll take a look. N2e (talk) 09:42, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Bolivarian Navy of Venezuela may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • The Naval Operations Command is commanded by the Chief of Naval Operations, {{as}2014|lc=y}}, Vice Admiral Antonio Díaz Clemente.<ref>http://www.armada.mil.ve/portal/poder</ref>{{full}} This

Merlin 1D ISP[edit]

I came across this today: http://www.reddit.com/r/spacex/comments/2fx2tq/ways_to_increase_the_beo_performance_of_falcon/ckduixs

Don't know if it's accurate or not. — Gopher65talk 00:05, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, me neither; it's Reddit. But if someone knows where any particular Wikipedia page makes a claim on Isp for the Merlin 1D that is incorrect, in that it disagrees with the spec as published by the manufacturer, then that claim ought to be corrected forthwith, and a source citation left.

Space debris and spaceflight[edit]

There might be something in User:Robertinventor/subpages beneficial to your interest in space debris or to your more general interest in spaceflight.

Thanks. I'll take a look. And as I find items for potential synergy with the Environment WikiProject, I'll put something on that Talk page. N2e (talk) 09:20, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
