Absolute Moral Authority

Space Nerd Stuff.

Masten did another tethered test and they have video.

I know that a lot of the vtvl focus is for lunar work, but I can’t help but think this, if it’s as reliable as masten seems to be, that it will also be used to deliver large laboratory payloads to mars(like the mars rovers, only larger, and maybe with larger lifespans.)

I think all of these VTVL tests are impressive as all hell.  They are balancing an item of varying mass, in a single space on a needle of force, while also compensating for environmental stuff, wind humidity rain, blah.  Meanwhile, I can open a beerbottle with my teeth.
