That's up to the mods, but doing that would almost require the pinning of a bunch of other major topics.

Page 18 and no problems. I think that particular Forum Rule has been lifted, not entirely sure though.

Thread 6 is waiting for any major news from an upcoming conference.

Another all-electric sat order going up on F9. Guess ABS liked that bulls-eye-plus insertion SpaceX delivered; arriving at GSO 1 month+ early.

Thought this was cool bit of 'news':

 

This guy found a piece of a payload fairing while strolling along the beach in the Bahamas, it contained an intact camera module with a GoPro in it which they have removed from the wreckage and since shipped back to SpaceX in Hawthorne :)

The GoPro's are there as recovery research.

As noted in Elon's first public tweet on the subject, SpaceX is planning on recovering the payload fairing halves after each launch. This has been in the works for some time now but the info was embargoed.

Let the speculation begin as to how.

Ballutes? Packaging and weight might not be a killer and the Helium system is already built in -although not to scale.
