Právě jsem to dočetl a je to škoda no. :roll: Zatím prý není jasné jestli to souvisí s ARCA. Jinak ten letošní start vidím tedy špatně.

Obávám se, že jde jen o partu podvodníků.
Jejich aerospike nikdo neviděl v chodu, mají jen mockup rakety a na ten tahají peníze z investorů.
Pokud jste se podívali na jejich videa, tak staví raketu, nebo spíš její jednoduché díly
na koleně a termín startu neustále posouvají.
Protože vlastně žádný letový HW nemají, nemá smysl čekat na start.

Já bych s takhle ostrými soudy nebyl tak zbrklý a dal bych jim víc času. Neříkám, že nemůžeš mít pravdu, jen je na to brzy.

I have followed ARCA since 2004 but I did not pay much attention to this team until 2009 when I realized that its CEO, Dumitru Popescu, is a mixture of a swindler and insane man. He is a mad inventor.
I found your forum while searching for more information related to his arrest. I read, with Google translator, mainly the last posts.
I also found a topic in English, opened more than two years ago:
Is AirStrato, made by ARCA Space Corp, a serious giant electric plane or just a scam? (Opened Aug 01, 2015)
It is short and it is worth reading. This is the last message written there:

Dumitru Popescu, the CEO of ARCA Space, was arrested for fraud, embezzlement and forgery, on November 8, 2017.

Obrázek

See: http://www.donaanacounty.org/inmates/viewprofile/1700009732

It is quite funny that he is accused of committing a few frauds ranging from 100 to 500 dollars (also there are some over $20000).

In comparison the Space Port in New Mexico cost 218 mil. dollars and it has been rarely used. It appears that nobody was arrested in connection with this affair. (http://www.businessinsider.com/spaceport-tourists-spacex-virgin-new-mexico-2015-2)

Welcome to our forum! I hope you like it here. You are the first non-Czech or non-Slovak user of our forum. ;-)

Oficiální vyjádření společnosti ARCA k zadržení generálního ředitele:
ARCA Space Corporation will continue the development of its aerospace technology as scheduled. The company has full confidence in CEO Dumitru Popescu and expects him to lead the efforts. Mr. Popescu was charged in New Mexico state courts with alleged embezzlement and securities issues. However, Mr. Popescu maintains his innocence and expects to prevail in court proceedings.
Meanwhile the work of the company will proceed with a goal of presenting a successful aerospike rocket engine.
ARCA Space will keep the public updated on the progress of the company.

Everything you wrote is probably true. Thanks for sharing all this information with us. :palec nahoru:

Docela mě překvapilo jak velký má forum dosah. :palec nahoru:

Pod posledním video reportem epizoda 19.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57VJZjrGmcQ
je příspěvek od "Space Friend", kde mimo jiné píše:
"They were so close to a big breakthrough with the Demonstrator 3 launch, they just acquired a DARPA contract last month for the Arcaboard with additional tiers to follow. This was not supposed to be public information yet, and I didn't mention it before on here at the request of giving the company the chance to make this official announcement, which never happened due to the circumstances, but the media already put it out there along with the arrest information. "

"Finally, Dumitru was actually arrested on Oct 24 by the Department of Homeland Security when he returned from Romania on site at the airport with a questionable fugitive charge and later transferred to NM(the original charge doesn't even appear on the list), but ARCA members were instructed to keep things going business as usual for the time. This is why other investors did not hear anything back from him. I do not know why some of the media is misreporting the date of the arrest but it can be found in the NM court system for anyone to see. He's been in there for some time, he is dealing with a serious health issue, for which he sought treatment in Romania, he is not allowed to have visitors, which is a complete tragedy, while communication with him by phone is extremely difficult due to fears of monitoring by authorities. It took an ambassadorial effort to allow him to have his medicine approved, without which, could lead to significant health consequences. Despite all of this, he remains in good spirits, really wants to get back to building rockets, and his friends and family are doing their best to help him personally with his case, while ARCA is having to deal with this situation without their leader which is the most challenging trial the company has faced up to this point.

The most reliable source for the date of arrest is this official page:
http://www.donaanacounty.org/inmates/vi ... 1700009732
which clearly states: "Arrest Date/Time: 11-08-17 06:15", "Location: JONESBORO, GA"

It is true, JONESBORO is close to the airport of Atlanta but is about 15 km away. If Popescu really returned from Romania on Oct. 24, 2017 then what was he looking for in a location so close to Atlanta, two weeks later? Las Cruces, New Mexico, where D. Popescu located ARCA Space, is 2100 km west of Jonesboro.
