Bluff Bodies in Spaaace...

I don't know if anyone appreciates Hazegrayart as much as I, but here's a good example:

When the first stage is taxiing in the last few frames in the thumbnail it looks like a 3:1 fineness ratio truncated to 2.5 to accommodate the rocket engine. Those wingtip flaps are interesting. They act as skegs during landing approach and then turn to brakes after touchdown.

While Hazegrayart's visuals are impeccable, I'm starting to be amazed at the audio. The atmosphric acoustic effects are what? Sampled? Synthesized?

There is one launch scene from an airplane's cabin, and it has background chatter.

I've been listening to some Eric Weinstein content lately (I listen to Brett more often). He's been very critical of chemical space travel, but then I'm reminded of myself being critical of barbarian solutions while offering no concrete alternate solution.

Chemical travel is probably going to be the preferred mode of transport for the rest of my days; perhaps all of the days.
