08:55:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There we are. It didn't want to leave BH. Lion ie
08:55:42 <Betty> nice one
08:55:49 <KorbenC> Nice Lion
08:59:41 <Betty> did I say hi KorbenC?
09:00:18 <KorbenC> Betty, hi
09:00:32 <KorbenC> and morning all.
09:00:40 <Betty> guess not, sorry :-p
09:00:51 <KorbenC> I have been lurking. :)
09:01:04 <Betty> hi kc (working)
09:01:41 <Betty> bulger ie
09:02:06 <KorbenC> Grand
09:03:06 <Betty> Jim´s first :-)
09:03:16 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
09:03:28 <KorbenC> Wait, Jim is back!?
09:03:31 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
09:03:47 <Katie> Mornin' all
09:03:50 <JarnoO> HK should be there. Hopefully it gives a show for both Jim and HK (I think he could use a good one)
09:03:50 <Betty> yes, he is
09:04:02 <KorbenC> Wohoo!
09:04:08 <Betty> hi Katie
09:04:11 <KorbenC> JO, HK caught a 3b recently.
09:04:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think that was yesterday
09:04:48 <AYates> It was yesterday
09:05:06 <JarnoO> I know, but he missed SB by just 4 hours yesterday after sitting there since they arrived
09:05:36 <JarnoO> since they arrived minus one day
09:05:40 <Betty> hi Aaron
09:05:43 <KorbenC> Thats how boaty works
09:05:46 <AYates> Hi
09:05:48 <Kat> Joe, I can take the cam for Linda's last hour if you want
09:06:14 <Betty> Kevin has the cam
09:06:43 <Kat> OK - Kevin need a break?
09:06:52 <Kat> Thanks Betty
09:06:55 <AYates> I think people are upset, but I think everybody stands by their decision to not have a night sit
09:07:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you want to grab it that would be fine.
09:07:24 <AYates> It's brutally cold at times in the summer, I can't image what it is like now
09:07:24 <JarnoO> also looks like this SB had restarts, going by YNM
09:07:25 <Kat> Linda e-mailed me this AM - had to get my tires rotated for the trip!
09:07:41 <Kat> Got it Kevin!
09:07:51 <JarnoO> I count 11 restarts on the trace
09:07:59 <JarnoO> some more prominent than others
09:08:15 <Betty> looked like a strong one
09:08:23 <Kat> Was anyone at SB last night?
09:08:25 <KorbenC> AYates, its 35F there. So t-shirt or light long sleve weather.
09:08:33 <KorbenC> Kat, I odn't think so
09:08:45 <JarnoO> also looks like a normal summer SB trace, so I think the next interval could be below 7d
09:08:46 <Kat> Bummer
09:08:58 <Kat> SB does that!
09:09:19 <Kat> I probably wouldn't have been there either Hahaha
09:09:37 <AYates> :lol:
09:10:30 <KorbenC> I know that if I have to choose between SB and a few days in the UGB, I will choose UGB anyday.
09:10:48 <Betty> no way I would hae been there overnight
09:10:54 <KorbenC> SB seems to have developed a tendency too erupt out of nothing of late.
09:11:17 <Kat> Sleep is important if you want to get through the next day! 10 more days and I'm outta here!
09:11:50 <Betty> great, Kat!
09:12:45 <Kat> It's been 2 years I'm totally excited!
09:12:51 <Betty> I hope I`m allowed to come this year...
09:13:10 <Kat> Me too Betty!
09:13:57 <Betty> no chance for me atm
09:14:12 <LindaGl> Kat, thanks for taking Cam
09:14:32 <Kat> No problem friend! Tires are good to go!
09:15:18 <Kat> Grand single burst!
09:15:47 <LindaGl> Kat, :):thumbsup: YNP here she comes!
09:16:06 <JarnoO> G1C | 9m50s
09:16:41 <KorbenC> Kat, what are the top geysers on your list of "to see?"
09:16:53 <Dave from B™> Kat, are you going to your namesake area?
09:18:22 <Kat> Of course sometime during my stay! I have scheduled 2 nights at Mammoth (not my favorite place, but Tower is closed) want to spend some time with my wolves! :)
09:20:20 <Kat> KorbenC, SB, Grand, F&M, Bee of course, Fountains etc etc etc.....
09:20:32 <KorbenC> aka. everything!
09:20:56 <Kat> KorbenC, Amen - I have 13 days to get it done!
09:21:29 <KorbenC> Hopefully SB doesn't waste 1/2 of that :P
09:22:35 <AYates> I'm more worried about F&M taking all my time
09:22:41 <Kat> May miss Daisy with OF spin! Hahaha - glad there's gazers in the basin
09:23:29 <Kat> KorbenC, SB is going to give me a great eruption while I'm there! I'll be sitting if necessary!
09:24:53 <Kat> AYates, I got ya!
09:31:29 <Kat> Just wondering - are people wearing masks in the park?
09:32:33 <AYates> Kinda
09:33:21 <Kat> I will in crowded areas and of course inside anywhere
09:33:34 <AYates> In July you would see masks in the stores, but you'd also see 8 million people crammed together at Canyon without masks
09:34:46 <Dave from B™> Kat, I would expect most indoors; not many outdoors
09:35:58 <Kat> Hmmm, I'm fully vaccinated but want to be careful
09:37:09 <Kat> Missed Daisy!
09:38:07 <Kat> I thought NPS said masks in parks
09:38:23 <KorbenC> Kat, "when social distancing is not possible"
09:38:55 <Kat> Good rule Korban
09:39:27 <Kat> But then, many people don't know what that means!
09:39:30 <KorbenC> But I suspect this year will be mroe or less the same as the last, most people won't wear masks outdoors.
09:40:16 <Kat> Well if you see a standing bear mask - that will be me! Haha
09:40:35 <KorbenC> I wish the cam had that much detail. You will have to wave. :)
09:40:49 <Kat> OF
09:41:02 <Kat> KorbenC, I will!!
09:47:42 <Eric> Good Morning all
09:47:50 <JarnoO> morning Eric
09:47:56 <Eric> Hi Jarno
09:48:00 <KorbenC> Eric, hi
09:48:07 <Eric> Looks like SN15 launch possible today
09:48:11 <Eric> Hi Korben
09:48:44 <Kat> Riverside
09:49:55 <Kat> I forgot to say good morning all! Good morning and afternoon to some!
09:51:16 <Eric> Hi Kat
09:51:42 <Kat> Hey Eric!
09:53:48 <Kat> Grotto?
09:55:26 <Kat> Wonder what happened to Castle?
09:56:09 <JarnoO> unrecorded minor
09:56:41 <Eric> Jim is in Basin!
09:56:52 <JarnoO> Lion post
09:57:25 <Kat> JarnoO, Thanks
10:01:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Maspn music. Time to drive
10:01:42 <JarnoO> think Lion was a minor, but definitely more than just a roar
10:02:06 <Kat> Thanks Kevin! Have a good one! Glad I could help out!
10:02:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> TY Kat
10:02:18 <Kat> bbs
10:02:30 <Dave from B™> Start packing, Kat!
10:02:30 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, :) anytime
10:02:43 <Kat> Dave from B™, already started Hahaha
10:04:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like Lion is in dying gasps
10:07:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And Depression with a few last splashes.
10:12:59 <Betty> hi Eric
10:16:31 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric, Kevin L
10:16:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:16:58 <Betty> you scared Eric off
10:17:14 <Dave from B™> Yeah, I scare him
10:17:22 <Kat> Question - what do you use to clean your backpack water bladder?
10:18:44 <KorbenC> Kat, PM
10:23:59 <Dave from B™> I would guess a light bleach solution but never done it. I seem to lose them.
10:24:36 <KorbenC> I would advise against using bleach or any form of chemical solution.
10:24:51 <Betty> yes, also helpful for the water tank in your camper
10:25:10 <Dave from B™> Yes, Betty. That is what we do ever year for our van
10:25:39 <KorbenC> Especially with plastic water bladders, anything you put in there will "flavor" the bladder.
10:26:00 <Dave from B™> Good point, Korben
10:26:24 <KorbenC> So if you put soda in your bladder (like I did stupidly) everytime you use hte water bladder there will be a distinct rotten soda flavor.
10:26:31 <Dave from B™> I think my wife just uses hot water to clean
10:27:03 <KorbenC> That is what I do.
10:28:14 <123> just mix a variety of cleaning agents from under the sink!
10:29:00 <Betty> ugh, no!
10:29:15 <123> science!
10:29:41 <KorbenC> 123, I can see the Chlorine gas floating up. :)
10:29:52 <Betty> MacGyver
10:30:19 <Dave from B™> 123, sounds like a former POTUS virus remedy
10:30:46 <123> with enough chlorine gas, you'll never worry about dirty equipment again!
10:31:14 <Betty> well, that´s true... in some way:-p
10:31:52 <KorbenC> 123 is reminding me that in one gram of Uranium there is 10 billion calories, which is enough calories to survive you the rest of your life, in many ways.
10:32:00 <Kat> 123, Hahaha Not
10:32:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Life causes death
10:34:44 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, :)
10:35:07 <Dave from B™> If anyone hikes Corona Arch and finds a bladder...please send it back:)
10:35:31 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, 100% of people who drink water die.
10:36:02 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, how do you loose a water bladder?
10:36:57 <Dave from B™> It was in a backpack that it isn't normally in and it slipped out the top at some point without me noticing. I think it happened when we were sitting and I had backpack on
10:37:19 <Dave from B™> I wasn't going back to look for it
10:37:31 <KorbenC> ah. and that is why I keep my bladder in its own pocket, which I never open :)
10:37:58 <Eric> I keep my bladder in my body!
10:38:21 <KorbenC> Eric, keeping body parts inside of your body is way overrated.
10:38:59 <Eric> Tell that to someone with a colostomy bag!
10:39:26 <Eric> Not fun stuff.
10:39:35 <Betty> lol Eric
10:39:48 <KorbenC> Eric, you have a colostomy bag than?
10:40:15 <Betty> not to your last 2 posts, Eric
10:40:24 <Dave from B™> Anyway, it needed to be replaced. It was pretty old.
10:40:57 <KorbenC> Dave, if you drive down here you can have a few of ours, we have way to many.
10:42:08 <Dave from B™> I was thinking about coming down for a US Men's Soccer game on June 3, but we are taking care of Taylor's dogs. I don't feel like living with 4 dogs in the van.
10:42:45 <KorbenC> That would be a very "fun" trip with that many fur-beasts.
10:43:08 <AYates> I flush my bladder with a weak solution of bleach as a quick flush, then I let lemon water sit in it for a few hours, flush it with water multiple times and let it dry - but you definitely want to wash it thoroughly otherwise you may as well throw it away
10:45:09 <Eric> I use platypus water bladders and never wash them. Just rinse after use and air dry.
10:45:17 <Eric> Always fresh and awesome water!
10:45:48 <Eric> But I also use it every week, sometimes multiple times.
10:46:22 <Eric> platypus are also a little stronger than other bladders and don't tend to break.
10:46:29 <Eric> I even sit on mine :-P
10:47:18 <Jeff> wouldnt a platypus try and squirm around if you tried to sit on it? :D
10:48:00 <Katie> A Platypus would, but the platypus bladder isn't ambulatory
10:48:28 <Jeff> i was joking around on that katie lol i know he was talking about a bladder lol
10:49:21 <Eric> I have mine well trained Jeff!
10:49:22 <Dave from B™> haha
10:49:54 <Eric> It sits in my backpack and spits out water on request!
10:50:28 <Jeff> where does it get the water from? firehole river or yellowstone lake? lol
10:50:40 <Eric> I also NEVER put anything in my bladder other than straight water.
10:50:55 <Eric> You have to fill it before hand.
10:56:19 <Dave from B™> Just use the stream:D
10:56:40 <Dave from B™> Eric, JimS has returned
11:00:43 <Eric> I saw that Dave! So Happy!
11:01:03 <Jeff> yea im glad to see jim back in the park
11:01:09 <Craig M> morning all
11:03:05 <Eric> Hi Craig
11:03:27 <Betty> hi Craig M
11:22:00 <Betty> I missed OF I guess
11:22:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Only half of it.
11:28:47 <Dave from B™> woohoo...Becca has a high school teaching interview!
11:29:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice
11:29:18 <Betty> cool
11:31:47 <Katie> Dave from B™, where?
11:38:33 <Dave from B™> Lockwood, one of the states newest high schools
11:38:57 <Dave from B™> 15-20 miles from our home
11:40:09 <Dave from B™> I think they had frosh and soph classes last year. I think they will have 3 classes of kids this next school year
11:40:52 <Eric> Nice!
11:41:02 <Eric> I hope she gets the position!
11:45:21 <Dave from B™> She did not have a good student teaching experience and it has shaken her confidence
11:46:05 <KorbenC> Uhoh, waht happened?
11:46:11 <Eric> Daisy ie
11:47:30 <Dave from B™> She picked her old chemistry teached who she really liked but her teacher didn't give her any guidance.
11:49:59 <Eric> Eek, that is too bad
11:58:52 <Dave from B™> She starts full time at at Bar & Grill this week for summer. She is looking forward to a change for the summer
11:59:49 <Katie> Then she will make more $ than starting teacher salary. :D
11:59:59 <Dave from B™> It's hard not to like a job that gets you about $35-45/hr
12:02:47 <Katie> Well, a time comes when (for most of us) always working nights/weekends gets old and lifestyle becomes more important than tips.
12:09:21 <Dave from B™> Katie, that is very true. At 22, Becca isn't there yet.
12:15:01 <Katie> BHI
12:15:15 <Betty> yay
12:15:31 <Dave from B™> Yippee...small geyser
12:15:52 <Katie> text sent
12:16:15 <Craig M (phone)> Muster the Rohiram
12:19:37 <Kitt> appreciated the text
12:19:52 <Kitt> I am in 2007 of my photo albums
12:19:58 <Eric> bhi
12:19:59 <sparekitty> i was in the park on sunday and saw beehive. it was awesome! i was on my way to see grand and noticed indy going so we waited...we missed grand but it was an awesome bee!
12:20:01 <Kitt> Lots of Giant eruptions
12:20:03 <Eric> :-D
12:20:36 <Eric> anyone send txt?
12:20:45 <Kitt> they did
12:20:56 <Eric> I see it now, thanks Kitt
12:21:08 <Kitt> sure
12:22:03 <Betty> Jim in his red anorak?
12:22:16 <Eric> yep!
12:22:26 <Eric> Love it!
12:22:46 <Eric> Fixtures of Yellowstone :-D
12:22:59 <Betty> :-)
12:23:09 <Kitt> that fixture wasn't there all last summer
12:23:24 <Eric> I know....and he was missed :-(
12:23:33 <Dave from B™> Jim's last post was Sept 2018 before today
12:23:53 <Eric> Yep, Africa and then Covid I assume
12:23:55 <Kitt> 2019 was due to lions
12:24:22 <Kitt> I thought it would be better this year, but once again no cabins without bath
12:24:28 <Eric> SN15 FTS being installed.
12:24:46 <Eric> Yes, that seems silly
12:25:04 <Kitt> so once again no cabin for me
12:25:10 <Eric> :-(
12:25:15 <KorbenC> Ooo, made it back from my walk just in tiem :D
12:25:37 <Kitt> I may get my photo albums done this summer after all
12:25:40 <56789> seems the people on BW are looking up the hill....
12:26:13 <144> the extra cabins have to be cleaned by someone. until they allow more housing for employees, they won't have enough staff.
12:26:25 <KorbenC> 56789, I don't see what you are seeing.
12:26:41 <56789> look at JS
12:26:46 <AYates> I don't see that today but I've seen it before, it's the stupid high contrast setting
12:27:04 <KorbenC> BH
12:30:27 <Eric> windy
12:32:00 <Kitt> bison cut the people off from the overlook
12:42:58 <Betty> OF

12:56:42 <KorbenC> I see I still cannot type
13:07:15 <KorbenC> Interesting BH note
13:07:38 <KorbenC> That hole a few inches above the cone base bbuled during the past eruption.

14:14:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like my Uncle's dogs made it through the night but they are slow and swollen.
14:14:56 <JarnoO> good to hear
14:16:09 <Eric> SN15 is at least delayed :-(
14:16:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How long?
14:18:01 <Eric> Not sure...but cars and a trailer just headed back to the launch pad
14:18:02 <JarnoO> unknown, but it'll be for some time
14:19:06 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, that is good news about the dogs
14:19:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It would be fun to see one work but I have to admit the crashes are also exciting.
14:20:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looking like steam phase starting.
14:22:10 <KorbenC> Any reason as to the SN15 delay?
14:23:11 <JarnoO> something with the engines perhaps - they mentioned the trailer is for the raptor engines
14:24:40 <Eric> I think it has their pad tools in it that are necessary for any "emergency repairs"
14:24:54 <Eric> meeting, be back in a bit
14:25:11 <KorbenC> This rocket seems to be having trouble getting off the ground, lol.
14:25:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Will SN16 beat it?
14:26:15 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, maybe they will launch them both at the same time?
14:29:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They would hit each other
14:29:31 <7> different looking for a major
14:29:34 <KorbenC> exactly
14:30:10 <JarnoO> Arty ie
14:32:35 <JarnoO> how is that Castle major looking different from the usual one?
14:32:57 <AYates> It's nice to see arty on a clear day
14:33:39 <JarnoO> spikes on Echinus logger
14:34:07 <7> at first it had tha actiond of a minor, but then only 30 %humidity
14:34:14 <JarnoO> fudge... increase in non-minors on Constant/Whirligig logger
14:35:32 <JarnoO> and that increase in frequency of non-minors has preluded disturbances in previous years
14:35:46 <JarnoO> so I think Norris is having a spring disturbance
14:36:29 <AYates> Echinus is an indicator but it's hard to say without in-field observation
14:36:57 <AYates> I doubt we get that for a couple of days with SB last night
14:37:42 <JarnoO> Whirligig is a reliable disturbance indicator currently even without in-field observations
14:38:36 <JarnoO> and Echinus did start having increased activity weeks before a disturbance, so I think that one is also a good one but to a lesser extent as it can do that for weeks before changes at Whirligig
14:38:47 <JarnoO> Ot ie
14:40:04 <KorbenC> I wouldl ike in-person confirmation before we call it a D JO :)
14:40:41 <7> bulger also
14:50:17 <AYates> Nice little grotto start
14:51:13 <JarnoO> vehicles leaving launch pad
15:03:27 <Eric> Yep, back and back :-D
15:03:52 <Eric> Anyone catch SB in basin last night?
15:04:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Final checkouts
15:08:28 <JarnoO> recondensers started
15:08:31 <Eric> recondensor on
15:08:33 <Eric> :-D
15:20:33 <JarnoO> Grand
15:20:43 <Greg mobile> Kevin, how is your brother's dogs?
15:21:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cam controls dumped me. Just got them back but real sluggish
15:21:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are sore and slow but survived the night
15:24:26 <Greg mobile> Good, hope they have a full recovery.
15:25:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are looking good but the bill was $1200 just to start.
15:30:03 <JarnoO> b1 done
15:30:12 <JarnoO> probably one and done
15:30:33 <7> 2nd
15:30:43 <JarnoO> or not one and done
15:31:09 <AYates> That's a long b1 for a second
15:31:20 <JarnoO> 2nd done
15:33:44 <7> now for Riverside and Daisy :)
15:35:25 <KorbenC> did I miss starship?
15:35:38 <AYates> No
15:36:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh. Stupid controls.
15:36:41 <KorbenC> Good. I tired to squeze in a 3 mile run, thought I had missed it.
15:37:06 <JarnoO> G2Q 10m59s
15:37:13 <JarnoO> b2 43s
15:37:29 <JarnoO> b1 9m29s
15:37:42 <KorbenC> anyone know where we are in the launch sequence? (Trivent, ect?)
15:37:49 <JarnoO> tank farm activity
15:37:57 <KorbenC> Thanks Jarno
15:41:06 <KorbenC> Eeek, ceiling height does not look got at Boca Chica
15:41:34 <AYates> Yeah that's pretty gloomy
15:42:12 <AYates> Probably within spec still but for a flight already scrubbed to weather you'd like a sunny day
15:42:35 <JarnoO> they have launched Starship in fog
15:44:54 <AYates> I don't think visibility is the concern as much as other factor from bad weather
15:45:36 <JarnoO> Quote of the day: "Linux is some sort of programming language" on the NASASpaceflight stream
15:46:09 <KorbenC> AYates, visibility is not a big "problem" wind and rain are the only big ones.
15:46:30 <KorbenC> The wind right now is quite high, but is also pretty stable.
15:47:16 <AYates> I have it muted but I wish I heard that
15:50:16 <JarnoO> actually - I've greatly misheard it. "I do know Linux is used on some rockets (which isn't a programming language)". 1644:48 CDT on the stream
15:52:01 <AYates> We're really close
15:52:25 <AYates> Fuel then oxidizer and we're ready to go
15:56:43 <Eric> If the Rockets a Rockin....
15:57:03 <Eric> 163,000 viewers, almost as popular as here!
15:57:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Methane vent. Sound like it had burritos for cinco de mayo.
15:57:17 <KorbenC> I want SN15 to land, but hope it explodes. :P
15:57:27 <Eric> It will land :-D
15:57:35 <KorbenC> Thanks for that Kevin! lol.
15:57:54 <Eric> How fast and in how many pieces is yet to be determined.
15:58:23 <KorbenC> I think it will land though, and not explode a few mins after landing. I have trust in this rocket.
15:59:21 <AYates> of
16:02:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> controls released
16:03:48 <JarnoO> R'side
16:12:31 <JarnoO> tri-vent
16:12:36 <KorbenC> Thats a really cool vent
16:12:37 <Eric> tri-vent
16:12:40 <Eric> haha
16:14:40 <KorbenC> No SpaceX stream yet
16:15:25 <JarnoO> don't think SpaceX starts streaming until a few minutes before launch
16:16:54 <KorbenC> I thought last time they started it 15 or so mins before launch, but I might be wrong.
16:17:49 <JarnoO> about 8m till launch
16:18:07 <KorbenC> Nice.
16:18:09 <Eric> SpaceX direct feed:
16:21:34 <JarnoO> T-3
16:21:37 <KorbenC> SpaceX youtube
16:21:43 <KorbenC> T- 3m 07s
16:22:13 <JarnoO> Riverside erupts in series?
16:22:24 <KorbenC> Haha.
16:22:54 <KorbenC> T-2
16:22:57 <Eric> 2m to SN15
16:23:31 <JarnoO> T-1
16:23:47 <KorbenC> T-1
16:23:58 <KorbenC> Spaceflight is about 15 seconds ahead
16:24:16 <JarnoO> launch!
16:24:21 <KorbenC> liftoff
16:24:48 <KorbenC> Correction: SpaceX is delayed
16:26:21 <KorbenC> why did spacex feed cutout?
16:26:52 <JarnoO> as long as the timer runs it's goot
16:26:55 <JarnoO> good*
16:27:10 <JarnoO> probably a sloppy connection
16:27:31 <JarnoO> feed's back somewhat
16:27:40 <KorbenC> looks like the OF camera now :P
16:27:45 <JarnoO> indeed
16:28:14 <KorbenC> 10km
16:28:26 <KorbenC> feed back
16:29:12 <JarnoO> horizon in view
16:29:51 <JarnoO> looks like they're using VLC to get the feeds
16:30:02 <JarnoO> landing?
16:30:05 <KorbenC> maybe
16:30:12 <KorbenC> YES
16:30:25 <JarnoO> it stands!
16:30:55 <KorbenC> Successful landing, but it is on fire
16:31:00 <JarnoO> with fire
16:31:21 <JarnoO> vertical landing though
16:31:44 <JarnoO> hopefully not an unplanned second launch
16:32:03 <JarnoO> hm, methane leak again
16:32:51 <KorbenC> Big Fire
16:33:44 <JarnoO> nevertheless it's been called successful
16:34:26 <KorbenC> Maybe if they let the fire burn for a while, it will run out of fuel?
16:36:12 <🥸> One way or the other...
16:36:33 <JarnoO> fire out!
16:37:05 <JarnoO> now to cool it down. Venting to reduce pressure
16:37:22 <JarnoO> water cannon almost out
16:38:04 <Eric> Woot! Success!
16:38:59 <🥸> Pretty cool it was the 60th anniversary of Shepard’s flight. I remember watching that one in school.
16:39:35 <JarnoO> Starship landing nominal per Elon
16:39:52 <Eric> Hopefully fires on landing pad aren't "nominal" :-P
16:40:00 <Eric> But great success
16:42:11 <JarnoO> I do think they'll look at the methane leak and see how it can be prevented
16:42:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Always like to see a complex plan go together.
16:42:58 <JarnoO> because I doubt NASA would allow that vehicle to fly with astronauts unless the leak has been fixed
16:43:16 <kc (working)> 👽
16:43:28 <Eric> or 100 passengers, which it is capable of!
16:43:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> As long as it isn't a faulty O ring Jarno.
16:45:35 <JarnoO> ooh, that would be bad
16:55:18 <JarnoO> venting almost stopped
16:59:01 <Eric> Launch it again!
16:59:12 <Eric> scooter on Path!
16:59:15 <Eric> electric
17:02:02 <JarnoO> Lion ini
17:06:03 <JarnoO> hm, maybe not ini then
17:07:43 <7> distractions, distractions :(
17:09:18 <JarnoO> Giantess water level seems high
17:09:41 <JarnoO> though I can still see the white ring though. Maybe it's on the rise
17:10:56 <JarnoO> some N rim boils
17:11:03 <JarnoO> but nothing exciting
17:44:27 <JarnoO> many vehicles arriving at the site
17:44:51 <JarnoO> Grotto Fountain ie maybe? Or Spa
17:44:53 <JarnoO> ?
18:05:22 <JarnoO> an OT joins the Burglar - euhm - Bulger
18:18:56 <JarnoO> Off for the day. Enjoy the Anemones and possibly Lion and Giantess boils
18:19:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good knight
19:09:55 <LindaGl> nice static pic
20:13:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy really looks whole wheat this time.
20:14:41 <Laura> pretty sunset, looking forward to seeing htis for real in a few weeks!
20:16:14 <KorbenC> Night all.
20:16:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good knight
20:19:30 <Laura> ;quit
21:37:40 <AYates> Grand ie
