2004 comment[edit]

Hey, this page is just a rough working copy and i plan to update it soon so plz excuse all errors and, as always, feel free to correct or change the document. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Diploid (talkcontribs) .

Spaceport Tonga[edit]

This source from June, 2010, says that InterOrbital Systems (InterOrbital.com) plans to build a private spaceport in the Kingdom of Tonga with orbital rocket launches starting as early as this year. The company tag line is apparently "from paradise to outer space"'.

Does anyone else have a better source for this claim? Ought we reflect this in the article on Interorbital? N2e (talk) 00:15, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Move request to move iOS (Apple) to IOS[edit]

IOS is currently a disambiguation page, and it links to this one. Its proposed to move iOS (Apple) over than and move the redirect to IOS (disambiguation). See Talk:IOS (Apple)#Requested Move 3 if you wish to comment. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 20:11, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Launch sites outdated[edit]

The launch site section only talks about Tonga. There are no references for this information outside the company website, and the idea seems to have been abandoned. Any objection to removing the section? DPRoberts534 (talk) 19:04, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

I removed it. DPRoberts534 (talk) 20:23, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Propellants[edit]

I edited the page, removing reference to a hypergolic propellant "Hydrocarbon X", the existence of which I was unable to verify. Instead, the source assumed to support the use of this propellant instead claims that the propellants used are either WFNA and Turpentine or WFNA and Furfuryl Alcohol.

The second edit was to remove a reference to WFNA and Turpentine as "green" and "derived from pine trees and quaker oats". WFNA can't be sourced from oats or pine trees, and the common source for WFNA is from ammonia, which is generally produced using coal or other hydrocarbons. This part of the article read like a sales brochure, and had factual inaccuracies.

If a reliable source can be found that confirms Interorbital Systems' claim that their propellants are sourced in a renewable manner, then the article can be amended with the source included, but until then the article shouldn't make any reference to Interorbital Systems' choice of propellants being "green". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zeus Kabob (talkcontribs) 21:59, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

New edits[edit]

I've been editing this page to update and add clarity. There is still room for improvement, especially in citations, but I'll try to work on that myself.

What have they done since mid 2016[edit]

What have they done since mid 2016 ? Any launches, even sub-orbital ? Any change of plans for NEPTUNE ? - Rod57 (talk) 10:20, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
