    Published on Aug 20, 2019
    It was quite a surprise to see this trailer revealed at Gamescom this morning, a cinematic trailer for Kerbal Space Program 2, developed by a new developer and showcasing propulsion technology far beyond that in the original game.
    The trailer paid homage to the classic 'Build Fly Dream' trailer

    It took a few tries, but the Starhopper testbed finally came through:

    Thoughts about the process and how Starhopper was eventually successful:

    SpaceX Starhopper Launches - 150 Meter Flight Test is Successful

    Marcus House
    Published on Aug 27, 2019
    This afternoon and after a bunch of delays and a failed attempt at the launch yesterday due to an issue with the igniters SpaceX Starhopper Launches and took to the skies with its second and final untethered flight for this test vessel. The target flight for this was 150 meters in altitude which was revised down from 200 meters before today's flight. The reason for this seems to be due to regulatory approvals being more difficult above the 150 meter mark but that is possibly a little bit of speculation at this point. The starhopper itself is roughly 20 meters in height so we were expecting the view of the Starhopper hovering up around seven to eight times its own height before slowly coming back to gently touch down. From these shots it does certainly look like the target altitude there was reached successfully. The 150 Meter Flight Test is Successful! Here is my take on this amazing achievement. Congratulations SpaceX!

    Part of India's Chandrayaan 2 mission to the moon may have failed when communications was lost with the Vikram lander during its descent to the lunar surface. Story: India Loses Contact with Vikram Lander During Historic Moon Landing Attempt: https://www.space.com/india-loses-con...

    The Indian Space Research Organisation has lost contact with the Chandrayaan-2 lander minutes before it was to land on the Moon. Isro is analysing data from the Vikram lander's descent and is hoping to make contact with the spacecraft. India's second mission to the Moon, Chandrayaan-2 was attempting to land near the south pole of the Moon. Chandrayaan-2's lander Vikram houses the six-wheeled rover Pragyaan that was to explore the lunar surface for around 14 Earth days. The Chandrayaan-2 mission also consists of an orbiter that will revolve around the Moon for around a year. Updates on the Chandrayaan-2 landing are coming in from the Indian Space Research Organisation's headquarters in Bengaluru. Stay tuned with India Today as we bring you the latest from the Chandrayaan-2 landing.

    Great news, the orbiter has found the lander about 500m from the choosen landing site, and attempts are happening right now to re-establish communication with the Vikram lander.

    It is being reported this morning that the the VIKRAM moon lander - which apparently failed in its mission a few days ago, has been discovered. An image of the lander was taken by the orbiter and ISRO and trying to make contact with its spacecraft.


    Big Breakthrough For ISRO, Chandryaan 2 Lander Vikram Located Via Orbiter

    The Indian Space Research Organisation has managed to locate Vikram, the Chandrayaan-2 lander, on Moon's surface a day after losing contact with the craft. However, Isro is yet to establish contact with Vikram; the space agency lost communications with the lander minutes before it was to land on near the south pole of the Moon on Saturday.
