07:33:27 <KorbenC> oh no, YNM down.
07:33:45 <KorbenC> and morning Ætna
07:34:21 <Ætna> morning Korben, all
07:35:17 <Ætna> I surely hope the cam will be fixed before the park closes again
07:35:44 <KorbenC> That would be nice.
07:46:28 <KorbenC> I see we are launching SN10 today.
07:52:31 <Ætna> SN10 launch? Hopefully it doesn't become scrap
07:52:51 <KorbenC> appears to be good weather
07:52:57 <KorbenC> Sometime from 9am to 6pm CST today
07:53:25 <linda> a lot of steam off to the left
07:53:40 <linda> gone now
07:53:41 <Ætna> appears to be normal morning fog
07:53:43 <KorbenC> linda, looks like geyser hill fog.
07:54:14 <linda> KorbenC, the ole geyser hill fog trick
07:56:32 <KorbenC> I did wake up this morning thinking Giantess was going to erupt though :D
07:59:57 <Ætna> it better do, but only when the live cam is up :)
08:00:30 <KorbenC> How about one now, then one once the cam comes back up?
08:01:12 <linda> KorbenC, nice dreaM
08:15:34 <KorbenC> JO, can you come work for NOAA/NWS, for the past 2 days we have been having problems at a "national level" with the detailed forecasts.
08:17:01 <KorbenC> And we need your IT know-how, hate the enter key
08:55:24 <kc (working)> OF
09:51:54 <KorbenC> Hi Eric
09:53:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are doing some track panel work in Kansas City Eric.
11:49:24 <kc (working)> OF
12:15:33 <Eric> Afternoon all
12:15:51 <Eric> These guys sound like Gazers at SB
12:16:15 <Eric> But they are making lots of $$ for doing it publicly :-P
12:17:45 <Eric> Arguing over the indicators for the SN10 launch
12:26:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Somebody needs to put a fire under its butt.
12:27:09 <Eric> haha, hi Kevin
12:27:39 <Eric> I need to go to SB and Live broadcast now that commercial filming is allowed in YNP :-P
12:28:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You would have to be more interesting than these guys.
12:29:04 <Eric> Not sure about that :-P
12:29:28 <Eric> We could get some of the more compelling characters at SB to talk.
12:29:43 <Eric> Tom would have been my first choice! RIP.
12:30:07 <BenVL> *30 minutes of silence, followed by "oooooo! ..... Nevermind"
12:30:26 <Eric> haha :-D
12:31:23 <BenVL> "On today's episode of geyser sitting, how to take a nap in broad daylight"
12:31:58 <Eric> Oh common, people are super chatty about every little detail about other activity.
12:32:19 <Eric> But a nap up need arti definitely sounds good today :-D
12:32:39 <Eric> fuel is loading in SN10
12:32:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And a discussion with a ranger about how you are not really camping on the bw...
12:32:42 <BenVL> "Step 1: make sure you stay up late enough at your geyser of choice so that you are tired almost all day
12:32:45 <Eric> about 30 minutes to launch
12:32:58 <Eric> haha
12:34:22 <Eric> I love that they made their starship launch prediction spreadsheet into a tshirt!
12:34:40 <Eric> We need one of those for each geyser :-D
12:35:44 <KorbenC> What then, everytime our geysers chance we change the t-shirt?
12:36:37 <Ætna> is that a British person hanging around in the stream?
12:39:21 <Eric> Yes
12:48:22 <Ætna> 1414 CST for SN10
12:48:30 <BenVL> Looks like norris temps came in today but not yesterday
12:48:32 <Eric> Yep
12:48:36 <KorbenC> As far as we know anywas JO
12:49:11 <Ætna> Yesterday's Norris upload failed
12:49:26 <BenVL> Does
12:50:08 <Ætna> yikes... may have been some kind of storage failure. Only Vixen shows data for the last 48h, none of the others
12:50:09 <BenVL> * does not seem like yesterday's came in alongside todays like it can sometimes
12:53:16 <Ætna> either way - SB at 24½°C. Ambient-related, Nuphar at ~5.7°C
12:53:24 <Ætna> no, 7°C
12:53:51 <Ætna> blegh, numbers
12:59:01 <KorbenC> Not bad cloud cover looks like WSM40, not bad for a space launch
13:01:02 <KorbenC> LCL of 12K, how high is this one going, 10km again?
13:14:19 <Ætna> almost launch time
13:14:31 <Ætna> there we go
13:14:33 <Ætna> abort
13:14:36 <KorbenC> ABORT
13:14:41 <KorbenC> Bad SN10!
13:16:34 <Ætna> out of bounds Raptor engine thrust. Could be a showstopper for the day
13:17:46 <Eric> Yep, will be interesting to see what the auto shutdown was.. Amazing how fast they shut those engines off though.
13:17:47 <Ætna> they're evaluating what to do next
13:19:10 <Ætna> makes me think of that Delta abort. Its famous burst of flames had already happened but ended up not going up
13:20:07 <Eric> Interesting that they are still chilling the engines...guess you can't let it expand in there.
13:20:41 <Ætna> Change of Whirligig eruptive style today or yesterday. More minors at generally shorter intervals
13:21:57 <Eric> SB looking good
13:28:36 <Ætna> as SB's temperature is still increasing, I don't think today is the day. Once the curve flattens I have more hope
13:33:41 <Ætna> another attempt in 2 hours
13:34:33 <Ætna> looks like they evaluated the issue as fixable in a few hours. Maybe just tweaking some settings :)
13:37:05 <Ætna> also, regarding that OS question on Perseverance - it runs VxWorks
13:40:03 <Ætna> it's a real-time OS, which comes down on that each task has a set maximum duration. If a task isn't completed within that time, the system simply fails
13:40:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It must have been doing an update.
14:14:49 <Ætna> wow. 44°F
14:14:54 <Ætna> not so wintery now
14:20:47 <KorbenC> Too bad the cam is down
14:49:42 <KorbenC> One of my eruptions got falgged, and I have no idea which one, JO, any way you can help?
14:50:01 <KorbenC> It got deleted, supposedly, but, I have no idea which eruption and from when :P
14:51:11 <Ætna> I don't have access to GT's database, so I can't be of help regarding that. Could you pass on the ID, then I'll ask the GT team internally
14:51:55 <KorbenC> 1271944
14:52:30 <Ætna> thanks
14:53:23 <Ætna> Based on the previous and next ID it was an entry made on November 9, 2020. That's all I can gather from that
14:53:33 <Ætna> anyway, off to ask the GT team
14:55:25 <KorbenC> Don't let them bust their heads over it, but would like to at least know what eruption it was.
14:56:21 <Ætna> I know
15:20:01 <Betty> afternoon all, evening Jarno
15:21:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
15:22:06 <Betty> hi double cactus Kevin. how are you today?
15:22:56 <Ætna> evening Betty
15:23:03 <Ætna> SN10 recondensing
15:23:04 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
15:23:15 <Betty> hi Forestbewithyou
15:23:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not as bad but still sort of sore.
15:23:55 <Betty> at least better, that´s good
15:24:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And I do have depot lights too!
15:24:46 <Betty> nice :-)
15:33:36 <Ætna> propellant loading
15:44:40 <linda> greetings
15:45:02 <Betty> hey linda
15:45:12 <linda> Betty, hey
15:45:23 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
15:46:35 <linda> Forestbewithyou, hi
15:47:20 <linda> nice blue sky
15:47:53 <KorbenC> linda, hi
15:48:06 <linda> KorbenC, hi
15:49:10 <Ætna> methane vent of SN10 just opened
15:49:36 <KorbenC> Hopefully this one works,
15:53:11 <KorbenC> JO, have any of the SN's had a fully successful launch and landing?
15:54:01 <Ætna> not any of the recent ones. I believe hops were eventually successful
15:58:48 <Ætna> Etna's tremor activity has been very erratic with this cycle. Very wide fluctuations
15:59:23 <KorbenC> Do you have a link, I am trying to find it again.
15:59:41 <Ætna>
15:59:59 <KorbenC> thx!
16:02:48 <Ætna> tri-vent
16:02:49 <KorbenC> trivent
16:02:56 <Ætna> T-±12
16:03:23 <KorbenC> Ætna, any predictions on this one?
16:03:43 <Ætna> next paroxysm?
16:03:53 <KorbenC> yes.
16:04:10 <Ætna> probably tomorrow afternoon or evening
16:04:16 <Ætna> (CET)
16:04:23 <KorbenC> Last 2 itnervals are a multi-day difference, and I have not been following close enough to look at the paterns :)
16:04:43 <Ætna> MST would be early tomorrow or afternoon
16:04:59 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Thx for converting it :)
16:06:17 <Ætna> but it's a good idea to occasionally check that page throughout the day. If tremor levels rise and continue to do so, it's best to watch an Etna stream as you might be in for a paroxysm
16:06:37 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Nice
16:07:39 <KorbenC> Low level cloud system, probably won't impead on launch, but, might be right over launch pad in about 10min
16:09:35 <KorbenC> SpaceX live, time is about 4 seconds ahead of the other one.
16:13:34 <KorbenC> T- 1 minute
16:13:54 <Ætna> hold
16:14:05 <Ætna> release
16:14:23 <KorbenC> T-30 seconds now
16:14:44 <Ætna> tri-vent hiccup, as expected
16:14:57 <KorbenC> Launch
16:14:58 <Ætna> we're off
16:15:18 <KorbenC> Fingers crossed
16:16:26 <Ætna> noisy little fellow
16:16:34 <KorbenC> Sounds like it is angry with us :)
16:16:49 <KorbenC> Is that 42 written on the engine?
16:18:16 <Ætna> one raptor remaining
16:18:39 <KorbenC> Yup, and up into clouds.
16:18:52 <KorbenC> 10km
16:18:55 <Ætna> bellyflop imminent
16:19:08 <KorbenC> Crazy that we can hover something that big 10km up.
16:19:16 <Ætna> flop
16:19:21 <KorbenC> Yup
16:19:29 <Ætna> fingers crossed it doesn't meet the fate of SN9
16:19:39 <Ætna> looks like a big bomb
16:19:40 <KorbenC> was about to say that :P
16:20:41 <KorbenC> SpaceX should have a little altimiter dial somewhere, like they did for the dragon launches.
16:20:58 <Ætna> all three
16:21:06 <Ætna> hover
16:21:13 <Ætna> almost
16:21:18 <Ætna> LANDED
16:21:18 <KorbenC> down
16:21:37 <KorbenC> SN10 launch is fully successful, wow! 2nd time is the charm I guess.
16:21:52 <KorbenC> Fire?
16:21:56 <Ætna> third, actually, though the first was technically unintention
16:21:57 <Ætna> al
16:22:05 <KorbenC> Ætna, lol
16:22:20 <Ætna> leaning tower of SpaceX :D
16:22:31 <KorbenC> Haha
16:24:28 <Ætna> I think they're making notes on how to stabilize Starship should the landing legs fail to deploy
16:24:55 <KorbenC> land it softer maybe?
16:24:56 <Ætna> e.g. with more structural support for the skirt
16:25:38 <Ætna> that would make it harder for Starship to buckle in such cases
16:29:39 <Ætna> boom
16:30:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> does close count?
16:30:42 <Ætna> well, SN10 went up for the second time. Unscheduled disassembly
16:30:49 <KorbenC> Almost
16:32:14 <KorbenC> At least it landed, and still gave us a good show.
16:40:33 <Betty> time for sleep. Have a great evening all
16:41:13 <linda> Betty, night
16:43:38 <Ætna> night Betty
16:43:59 <Ætna> Aurum 1642 frame
17:03:48 <Ætna> "physics called SN10"
17:04:24 <KorbenC> This flight ended like the cam, down for the count.
18:38:08 <KorbenC> Night y'all
18:38:42 <kcmule> 🌙
21:28:20 <Steamboat> Give me one minute, checking the possible SB
