So how many more before they can bring Skynet online?

Or, how many more before he puts enough of those up there to make astrophotography a challenge, trying to shoot between satellite passes?   :old:

The disposable interim legs are neat in their own right, the progressing size of holes creates a controlled propagation crumple zone.

Some good views of SN15's flight
First time I've seen the landing legs deploy from inside the skirt and pretty good view of touchdown

Cool video. 

This was recommended on it.  Video cuts of all the short hops of the SN craft.

Putting 15 on the launch pad.
Doesn't mean they're going to launch it again but we shall see.

I don't know why they say attempting, I am pretty sure they will hit the planet. The question is whether or not their rover will be operable after the landing. :)

There' always the possibility they could miss it entirely, it's happened.

All the CCP has to do is copy and paste the info they stole from everyone else.

China landed, maybe. They're being secretive about it other than saying it landed. https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-57122914

And Rocket Lab lost one last night. Looks like the 2nd stage went wonky. https://youtu.be/idBe7iP7dso?t=5712

Still have yet to see one photo from the Chinese Mars lander. Well except for maybe one unlabeled photo which may or not be from the lander. Either something has gone wong or they're just being aholes.

Those aren't mutually exclusive conditions but odds on the former are pretty high.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
