  2. Risk management is a vital element of success for any tradr in any mar:ket. No matter the size of the cap!tal you’re trad!ng with or investing in, losses are going to be inevitable, particularly in highly volatile mar:kets like crypt0currency. Learning how to manage risk to minimize losses is vital. Yet, it’s also necessary to master risk management in order to ensure maximum gains. After all, the more you’re willing to risk, the greater the potential reward. I’m not a pro tradr but I was lucky enough to make 25’B’T’C since late last year following the instriuctions and s!gnals from Wells Carlton. He runs program for investors/newbies who lack understanding on how trad!ng Bitcoin works, to help them utilise the volatility of the crypto mar:ket and also stack up more bitcoin.

  3. Parece mentira pero, es cierto. La gente de Elon Musk en Boca Chica se confiaron a tal punto que por darnos un gran espectaculo por un poquito más, pierden dos naves.

    1. El lugar de aterrizaje debería de ser más alejado de los puntos de despegue.
    2. Deberían de ir considerando el poner 5 motores en vez de 3 para reaccionar a tiempo y encender al menos 3 cuando cualquiera de los 3 principales fallen.
    3. Estan esperando mucho tiempo para hacer la maniobra de giro. Deberían de hacerla a mayor altura.

    ESTOS CONSEJOS TE LOS DÁ UN VIEJO DE 60 AÑOS QUE NO HA ESTUDIADO INGENIERIA NI NADA DE COHETES. PERO QUE CON LA EXPERIENCIA DE LOS AÑOS, CON LA LÓGICA Y EL SENTIDO COMÚN SE LOS OFRECE.

  4. tungsten-nickel would probably make the perfect landing pad. its incredible strong, dense, doesn't rust, wont chip, cant be heat damaged, etc. too bad its expensive and a pain in the ass to work

  5. for it to land it will need massive 10 to 15 foot maybe longer legs with shocks or it's just going to crash again, they need to swing down angled out wider than the rocket. if not it's just going to keep blowing up. those lil legs will not work. it would also help keep the engine flame farther away from the ground so it doesn't reflect heat and chunks of dirt back into the engine's. Kind of stupid not to. All the other rockets have them.

  6. SN16 dome was started in Nov 2020? Wow interesting.
    Will NDF need taller poles to mount cameras on soon if the walls are being built around the site?

  7. How does each new SN unit get named? Is it just a casual, unofficial, informally observed, "Well, it looks like a new SN just started its assembly," and so it gets assigned the next number? I don't see any external marking on any of them.
