Imagine if you will a politician who became spare weight on a Shuttle flight before being appointed the administrator of NASA.
>>13263313He basically killed her
>>13263304very cute, but i think you left your cursor on the screen just above her eye.

>>13263322ah, quite the oversight...

Wait so cosmic radiation only increases cancer by 1-2% on the ISS?
Orange rocket bad.Shiny rocket good.>>13263304cute
>>13263449yesradiation is a nothingburger
>>13263449On one hand the ISS is still protected by earths magnetosphere, on the other it's super thin because it had to be launched on the shuttle.If launch is cheap or you are already on Mars then just put a lot of stuff around you.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4xRNXyy-8oNew Apogee vid just dropped.
>>13263466>On one hand the ISS is still protected by earths magnetosphereKeep in mind the Earth magnetosphere is almost as strong a fridge magnet. And at around the ISS orbit, I doubt the magnetosphere will make a difference.>>13263459So what's up with popsci going on about all this fearmongering about space colonization outside of habitable zones.
>>13263476>So what's up with popsci going on about all this fearmongering about space colonization outside of habitable zones.It gives bucket crabs a reason to keep crabbing and hate on space colonization.
>>13263476The elites have begun a propaganda campaign against space colonization in the last few years. Most likely, because they don’t want any whites to escape the genocide, and don’t want any proles outside of their control.
>>13263475man his first videos were amazinggood quality compared to most youtubers
>>13263466>on the other it's super thin because it had to be launched on the shuttle.anyone more knowledgeable about radiation be able to tell me if its better to have multiple layers or one single layer adding up to the same thickness
>>13263495kek its still not big enough
>>13263486The elite you mean doomers and wokies? They're the ones complaining that space is a waste because of climate change and "poor" people. I have a feeling that a lot of them know deep inside that the main people who will be migrating to space are white and asian.The business elite are already invovled with space exploration.
>>13263502>The elite you mean doomers and wokies?No, Jews.
>>13263484Really it's ironic pop science used to be more optimistic before, but now real science is the one looking optimistic compared to popsci which has been taken over by doomers.Fuck doomers man, all they care about is forcing every government to become communist dictatorships.
>>13263475>Old Gaurd>not proofreading and quality checking his videos before uploadingIt's over apogee is finished
>>13263497You want multiple separate layers for both particle and ray shielding but unfortunately the shuttle's mass budgets were so bad you didn't get much of either.
>>13263304It's cute but... Why? >>13263476>So what's up with popsci going on about all this fearmongering about space colonization outside of habitable zones.It's all Hebrew nonsense that desperately tries to keep humanity stuck on earth.
>>13263509>makes high quality vids for spacex>makes shit for body odorFitting.
>>13263507>Really it's ironic pop science used to be more optimistic before, but now real science is the one looking optimistic compared to popsci which has been taken over by doomers.Intentional. (((They))) are spiritually Murdering the west.
>SpaceX is "in talks with several of the airlines" about using Starlink to provide inflight WiFi, although there is no timeline yet for when that might begin.>"We've already done some demonstrations to date," VP Jonathan Hofeller said yesterday.https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/10/spacex-starlink-talking-to-airlines-about-in-flight-satellite-internet.htmlthe funding from this will be insane
>>13263518Holy shit man.>just fly for days on end all around the world while browsing the internet during flight
>>13263511another question that i was thinking about when anons were talking about the magnetic shieldingwould thin permanent magnets inside the hull actually help? or would they have be bulky
>>13263515Interesting maybe they're worried about a new financial elite arising in the asteroid belt when mining companies are set up there.Which is why they push doomerism and space fud
>>13263515Yup. Notice how back in the 80s and 90s the only hopeful science fiction was basically "what if communism won" and then once it became clear the Soviets were gone forever they hard pivoted to "everything sucks forever now boo hoo." I hate (((them))) so much.
>>13263529we get it dude
>>13263529>back in the 80s and 90s the only hopeful science fiction was basically "what if communism won"Was it?
>>13263527No, they just don't want to give people an escape hatch from the hellish policies coming down the pipeline.>>13263541It was. Name one scifi movie or show from the period that wasn't either Star Trek style space communism or dystopian.
>>13263544because those are the only options
>>13263548Name one counterexample.
>>13263544The fifth element?GATTACA?
>>13263552Both crapsack dystopian worlds.
>>13263549those are the only realistic options, you are not going to have a bright future built on shareholder profit motive. Its not a political commentary, its basic logical extrapolation of the future which just happens to confirm that we are doomed.
>>13263554>Genetic super people going into space is dystopianDo you think dystopian means "bad stuff happens?"
>>13263544>No, they just don't want to give people an escape hatch from the hellish policies coming down the pipeline.Well i'm afraid they'll fail, people have through out history been trying to stop technological progress and they all end up failing in the end.Doomers and anti-space wokies can enjoy those hellish policies while us spacechads can watch and laugh at earth.
/pol/ needs to take its meds and fuck off
>>13263563look at thatyou have no ability to argue because there is no possible way to come up with a better future for humanity so long as the interests of a small minority are the motivation for everything.Its a simple statement, with no counter because its nearly a tautology.
>>13263562>built on shareholder profit motive.Capitalism is one of the driving forces of technological advancements.The profit motive actually encourages innovation, just compare the private space industry right now with national space agencies. The private industry is making them look like amateurs.
>>13263573>you have no ability to argue because there is no possible way to come up with a better future for humanity so long as the interests of (((a small minority))) are the motivation for everything.That's kind of my point. You're so thoroughly brainwashed by them that you see their two preferred systems as the only options.
>>13263562>you are not going to have a bright future built on shareholder profit motiveCapitalism built the west’s success. Kys
>>13263569>Well i'm afraid they'll fail, people have through out history been trying to stop technological progressTechnology will be used to create dystopia and enslave everyone, retard.
>Looking for space discussion in /sfg/
>>13263573Individuals following the profit motive is exactly what built a “better future” for America.
>>13263575Not in its current form. Its current form has produced businesses run by businessmen.>>13263578White Christians* first and foremost.
>>13263584Anons don't care about spaceflight.

>>13263599Who the fuck doesn’t do legs twice a week at least?
>>13263588People don't realise the reason why Elon is cost optimising space travel is because of profit maximization.Better technology and cost optimization > higher profits and outputs (starship 2.0, starship 3.0 etc)
>>13263595No they care more about petty politics and being doomers.Both /pol/fags and woke fags can stay on Earth and have a doom and gloom mindset.Capitalism will be one of the reasons why I might be able to live on the moon in my lifetime.
>>13263609>Both /pol/fags and woke fags can stay on Earth and have a doom and gloom mindset.>le both sides are le same memeDid you need a stepladder to get up on that high horse?
>>13263605Elon is optimizing space travel to make large scale transport of resources and people to mars as cheap as possible.
>>13263609>nooo stop believing in reality
>>13263613Yes, you both are the same, you both are a bunch doomers. In reality 50 years from now I can bet you that living standards will be much higher than they are today because of technological innovation.
>>13263626Crypto will replace fiat capitalism in the future.The reason being is that it fits the criteria of a type-1 civilization currency.
>>13263518I think the airlines are looking forward to offering free unrestricted wifi as much as the passengers are to using it. Starlink would remove the burden of all those complicated, expensive infotainment systems and make passengers much more tolerant of delayed flights.>>13263625>incoherent spelling>doubling down on being wrong
>>13263620>>13263605Forgot to add, once there is a decently sized mars colony a large space based economy will follow pretty quickly simply from all the transit occurring between Mars and Earth and all the corporations set up to service this economy. Also, I think that while cislunar space won't have as much resources put into it as mars by SpaceX at first, within 15-20 years the cumulative effort put into industrializing cislunar space by nations and private commerce will outpace or at the very least match SpaceX's mars colonization efforts.

>>13263651There have been no Communists allowed beyond LEO in history so far and I intend to keep it that way.
>>13263639I think Luna will become a travel hub and a place where many earth corporations will have their space headquarters in.Mars will be interesting to see how it develops, considering that Elon wanted to make his colony a direct democracy.
>>13263636money existed before capitalism and forms of it have existed in socialismcapitalism is a very rigid definition "the private ownership of means of production"ownership here does not simply mean 'control', it means the legal right to exploit that for your personal profit via the legal mechanism of the state and enforced with state capacity for violence.This definition can be filled in by secondary consequences of this such as wage labor and the nature of capitalisms class structure but these are inevitable consiquences of capitalism and not its most basic and precise definition.The consiquences of a thing can be said to be that thing as well sometimes, and also the causes of a thing can sometimes be named that thing too, and so as a loose term capitalism might refer to consequences of capitalism, as ultimately those things are caused by capitalism. Contextually understanding what is meant then is important.
>>13263664Fuck off back to whatever college campus you're posting from, undergrad-kun.

What would happen if Bezos blows himself up on his rocket?
>>13263688>cultural Marxism was a response to the failuresit was a CIA subversion plot, it has nothing at all to do with any marxist basing, there is nothing marxist about it. Just because you fucking boomer pozzed brainwashed amerilards want to call everything you dont like communism does not change that. Marxist has very clearly laid out ontological and historical foundations, its entire world view is spelled out from the ground up and anything that violates them is automatically not marxism.>>13263741>fascism is what the fascists say it is!>what do you mean every branch of fascism says something different? no thats all simply fascism :^)fascism is anything that is not socialism (the abolition of productive class) in the face of capitalist decline. This is the definition of the 4th congress of the comintern, and thus this is the marxist definition of it. Fascism is a subversion of revolutionary potential and sentiment, playing on revolutionary desires by replacing the effective class method of revolution which produces a new society with a circular class-retaining revolution which uses scapegoats and insists only 'the right kinds of capitalists must be in charge'.There is zero difference between people saying there must be more diverse representation in corporate leadership today and the nazis saying there are too many jews. None, they are the same worldview repurposed.
>>13263830We have to solve problems here, in the inner system, before we even THINK about expansion to the gas giants and their many varied moons.
>>13263770The guys who wrote The Expanse thought through a lot of the physical constraints of colonizing the solar system and how that would impact system-wide politics... but then spent half the series on random ayylmao bullshit. In its mundane aspects, much future scifi is going to look like Expanse fan fics plus or minus some specific propulsion and hab building technology.>>13263849>everything my side did wrong was secretly the CIA: a dumb tankie's guide to 20th century history

>>13263851>my sidepeople who do not use marxist analysis are not marxists, its as simple as that. You can say they are as much as you want but what defines marxism is the use if dialectical and historical materialism to analyze a situation. Anything based on race, sexuality, or what ever the fuck you want to come up with, is exactly contrary to historical materialism, and thus can not be considered marxist.
>>13263851>Expanse fan fics plus or minus some specific propulsion and hab building technology.I bet our hab building and propulsion technology will be more advanced than the expanse by 2100.

>>13263889Where are the superdracos? I thought they were at the bottom of those c-shaped bits on the side of the capsule but they look completely smooth. Isn't that what the launch abort system uses?
>>13263907Dunno, that's just what they look like
>>13263930The fact shuttle could launch 4 times a year and SLS only once boggles the mind.

Reminder, we could very well see Starlink 2.0s launched on Starship starting next year if Starship orbit test goes well enough.
>>13263946Starlink 2.0 are the ones with full laser, upgraded networks, etc. Starlink 1.0 is the first 1600 constellation.Starlink 1.5 is the upgraded 1.0 with better network capability. Starlink 2.0 is 1.5 + lasercoms.

The funny thing about Starship is the sheer low cost of it makes a bunch of propulsion technologies stillborn. Take photon sails, for example. You could fill a Starship fairing with 98% folded sail and 2% payload, or you could just fill the entire 100 ton capacity with payload and a chemical braking stage, retank once in orbit, and hurl that 100 tons of science at a planet faster than a solar sail could go anyways. It's only high thrust nuclear technologies, like fusion drives, or NEP boosted with a plasma magnet sail, that are a path beyond Starship for reasonable mission design.
>>13263933It's literally just funding and actually wanting to accomplish something other than making jobsThe SLS would've been flying since 2018 if the government really wanted it toHell, constellation would've been flying by now if they wanted it
>>13264133i really really want them to get an adapter for a centaur in a probe/cargo version of starship
>>13264021What the fuck, even I can dock better in ksp than that
>>13264102it would work fine, just throw down some seeds from the arctic and sqiurt a little water in there and the co2 meter will start to show a deficit after a couple weeks
>>13264133starship killed space elevators too which is funny as fuckthough moon space elevators might still be ok
>>13264055How the fuck did china launch 39 rockets? Literally what they sent up there?
>>13264133>It's only high thrust nuclear technologies, like fusion drives, or NEP boosted with a plasma magnet sail, that are a path beyond Starship for reasonable mission design.It also killed the pathway for most nuclear development, you would have to be stupid to pay billions for a NTR at this point so the step into fusion or whatever is giant.

He had a whole episode recently about an uncanny series of industrial fires in Iran, directly naming the jew as the culprit and telling viewers to watch out and be ready for what might come of the yids poking the bear and running to hide behind the US.With that said the content is not particularly focused and you have very low chance of understanding him if you're ESL. I think of it as good talk radio style coverage, listen while driving, on the computer, etc.He had a guest on recently (Tim Pickens?) who had some great anecdotes about Virgin Galactic. Both of the guys had lots of stories about how things really go down at that type of company, lots of personal anecdotes about Burt Rutan and the like. Greg is definitely salty that Burt Rutan got labeled a visionary for taking ideas that he had in the 90s and making semi-functional prototypes out of them kek

>>13264391>Starship can already do Mars in 30 daysDoes this involve refueling in some high orbit?7km/s is not all that much
>>13264254I don't know how, but they made the rover look Chinese as fuck.

>>13264416Good luck getting anywhere with that enormous dry mass
>>13264424Saturn window opening soon?
>>13264416That article never says Starship can do 90 day transits from a LEO refueling, and the pork chop plot you posted earlier explicitly says>dv beyond escape from low orbitIn most windows it looks like 5-6 months is the shortest transit time achievable with 7km/s from LEO
Why is classical so kino with space
can an 18m tanker starship refuel a regular moon / mars starship in 1 shot?
>>13264341Carfe, coke, and adderall.
>>13264483>what is payload capacity
>>13264485Do you really think Elon does coke
>>13264519Only when he has other stuff to balance it out. The coke is just there to make sure he can actually walk and talk on stage.
>>13264448The pork chop was made by the same person who authored the article. A fully fueled Starship could easily be boosted into LEO escape or refueled during it. It could also be refueled in GTO which only needs about 0.7 km/s to escape Earth's SOI. I'm not sure if you're the nuclear proponent from earlier in the thread but you would be fucking crazy to think that adding ~2.5 km/s of delta-v to Starship in LEO in order to get the trip down to 3 months is harder than building VASMIR or whatever other meme.
>>13264483My kerbal space intuition says maybe
Does mars have fluorine
>>13264540It’s not that simple in rocketry
>>13264483What do you mean by 18m? diameter?
>>13264576Rocketry is just a KSP RSS/RO installation with some boomer pausing the game every step until you pay him a few billion dollars, and you have to make your own mods.
>>13264483Probably not. Double the radius quadruples the volume of fuel and therefore payload mass but I think one SS needs 6 tanker. (this is an approximation) >>13264571Yes, martian life became gay because of fluorine on the water and went extinct
>>13264592Just to clarify: I'm approximating it as equivalent to 4 SS launches. I know that's not how it works but we don't know what mass differences there would be or even of it would be raptors.
>>13264583Yea Elon mentioned the possibility of a future Starship upgraded to 18m diameter. Current Starship being 9m.
>>13264592mass fraction is much lower on 18m Starship, might be able to make up the last bit of difference there
remember what we lost
>>13264614I wouldn't bet on it but the result would probably be better than 4.

>>13264639I just want the ITS legs back.
>>13264663This paint job makes the SLS's nature as a Space Shuttle that had tranny surgery to LARP as a Saturn V too obvious. That's the real reason they dropped it.
>>13264023i would fuk her asshol
Current Starship design is best.
>>13264658I love ITS but the Superheavy equivalent cost $230 million to build, the Starship tanker equivalent cost $130 million to build, and the Spaceship itself would cost $200 million to build. The only way it was cost effective if it had an insane number of reuses, 1000 per booster, 100 per tanker, and 12 per ship (3 year trips to and from Mars each). ITS was also unrealistic in that the Raptors were supposed to each fire at 3,000 Kilonewtons. Current Raptor is 2,000-2,400 kilonewtons. Overall ITS was really cool but super unrealistic, although it did set the groundwork for Starship.>>13264626>Center engine >6 engines outside that>14 engines outside that>21 engines outside thatSuperheavy has 3 “layers” of engines and it looks hard. ITS has four
>>13264658fug that's kino.
>>13264669Orange paint weighs the least out of all colors.
>>13264682BFR 2017 was my favorite because it felt realistic. It was big but smaller than the Saturn V. It only used 31 engines on the booster stage. It only had 150 tons to LEO. But it could go to the moon and back and whatnot. First time Starship/BFR became real to me. Of course modern Starship wins because it’s the only one that’s actually flown
>>13264693*FODs your orbiter*
>>13264693It's not paint, that's just the raw insulation
>>13264687>The only way it was cost effective if it had an insane number of reuses, 1000 per booster, 100 per tanker, and 12 per shipIronically enough with starship they are aiming for a far higher number of reuses, which is much more doable because it uses stainless steel instead of carbon fiber
>>13264700What is version 1-4?
>>13264710Stainless steel is perfect. Carbon fiber is such a nightmare it really seems stupid in hindsight. Even the ITS Test Tank exploded at 2.3 Bar, while the shitty Starship MK1 vehicle popped at 2.1 bar, and current Starships get to around 7.5 bar
>>13264718No idea but here’s an embryonic Raptor from before 2016
>>13264727It's funny how you can see the progression from this test stand piping spaghetti to properly integrated engine over the course of Raptor development.
>>13264720Up to how many bar do they have to get?>>13264727Was it hydrolox?
>>13264738Nah hydrolox Raptor was canned in 2012. The pic is supposedly from Stennis in 2015. It’s an “oxygen preburner” test. The first Raptor to fire did so a year later in 2016, although this was a 1,000 Kilonewton version - which had 40% the thrust of “Modern” Raptors. The first Modern Raptor to fire did so 3 years after that, happening in 2019.
What would’ve happened if we still had the shuttle, but with an Americanized Energia. Like replace the solid boosters with 2-8 Kerosene ones. And have the Orbiter be optional.
>>13264830...SLS Block 2
>>13264531It is harder and it doesn't work. To go beyond the Moon we need new propulsion systems and band aiding primitive chemicals is just a dead end.
>>13264830Not possible. American State rocket must>provide lobbyists with money>provide politicians with votesFlying is just a side effect and your proposed idea is primarily focused on that side effect. What's the point of it if it cannot fulfill its main objectives?
>>13264738Current raptor needs around 6bar ullage pressure if I'm not mistaking.

Guy didn't really grab me.Estronaut has some really good videos, but he is oddly kind to SLS and buys NASA bullshit, probably for a PR move. His hour long breakdowns are great. The onions is too strong tho, and the fact that his discord and patrons pay to edit his videos for him is kinda weird.NSF are making a shit ton of money off of donations. I love what they do but holy shit, they make like $2000+ every stream. The majority of that money better be going to mary and jack otherwise their just taking advantage of the 'I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE AND ELON MUSK' crowd for easy moners.LabPadre is like a lower budget less I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE version of NSF. He's cool.Astrum has a weird accent I can't get over but his content seems decent.I watched Anton Petrov fuck around in Universe Sandbox in middle school.

Here's another perspective of mine that you will find interesting. What broke up the stagnation of Europe after Rome fell? The steam engine right? Wrong. It actually happened before that, during the age of colonialism. It was this exhausted territory that couldn't really come up with ways to deal with the stagnation, which realized that there is territory out there that is still untouched to that day, so it went and exhausted that to revitalize itself. When the US revolted and formed its own country, it found itself administering a territory that was completely untouched, which then led to the complete dominance of everyone else even 200 years later. Because everyone else is stagnant.It always seems that there's just more apples along the tree of low entropy, but there aren't. It's finite. The occasional luck of finding a region that is still lower entropy than the mainland is something that will not happen anymore. It's gone. Mars is higher entropy than Earth as it is and requires excess energy and matter just to make anything there function. Everything else around it is much worse. The reason why we still haven't colonized the deserts will be the reason why we'll never colonize Mars. And if we can't even find a return on our investment from Mars, which is supposed to be our low-entropy refuge from here, then we aren't finding it anywhere.This will be the entire rest of our future as humans from now on. The lucky little discovery that gave European civilization another branch of low-entropy apples, that isn't happening ever again. And there's nothing in our proximity that can change this, nor any indication that we'll travel far enough to do so. It really is over.
Indian Mars rover when?
>>13265627>That specific setup is the Cargo DragonAhh that's why there's no launch abort on there, that makes sense now.
>>13265614yeah that's what I said
>>13263871The Expanse had spun-up dwarf planets and 5G+ capable torch ships. In termsof stated travel times? Yeah, probably.
>>13265634As long as the Sun exists, Earth isn't a finite entropy system. It perpetually renews itself. That said, its renewal capabilities can be outpaced by humans if there are too many of us and our demands on the natural system exceed its output.>What broke up the stagnation of Europe after Rome fell?The Black Death and the loss of 1/3 to 1/2 the population. Besides the obvious social shake-up that comes with so many people dying there were also the long term consequences, such as the death of feudalism, that arose from the Black Death. It set the seeds for what would eventually become enlightenment thought and all that stuff about personal individual liberty etc. etc.tl;dr there are too many people. Reset the global population to what it was a century ago (approx 2 billion) and suddenly there's a lot more to go around.And let's face it, vast swathes of the population are useless and extraneous. Not just in the third world (but they're especially useless) but in the first world too. I'm not a giant edgelord who would condone point-blank killing them but I do think governments should start looking at social mechanisms for slow and gradual decrease of populations. I think most people are greedy and self-centred enough that they could be convinced to take a bi-annual chemical sterilization shot for a decent financial stipend or large tax break.
>>13265653Yea, but I think by 2150 we will have figured out a way to spin Ceres.
Use Starship in times of war to gobble up enemy satellites. *boom* no Kessler Syndrome to worry about.
>>13265598>"Environmentalist" (read chinese gov front) group is trying to stop the starship orbital flight from happening in 2021What a bunch of asshats.I'm honestly surprised that Elon hasn't simply made a private road for SpaceX to use themselves. Or even pay to have a new road paved for normies to drive along, letting SpaceX shut down the highway whenever they want, allowing another road available.
>>13265637>Ahh that's why there's no launch abort on thereAlthough, on second thought, I noticed the 2nd stage has the NASA worm on it, which means that is a photo of the Crew-1 mission. If that is the case, its highly possible the "Dragon" on the stand is simply a shell mockup for integration and fitting. The more I look at it, the more the cabin area looks completely fake.
>>13265674>I'm honestly surprised that Elon hasn't simply made a private road for SpaceX to use themselves. Or even pay to have a new road paved for normies to drive along, letting SpaceX shut down the highway whenever they want, allowing another road available.This is why he wants to incorporate Starbase as its own town that he's in charge of. Then the road will be the responsiblity of his town, and he can dictate if it's open or not. He could keep the road permanently closed to the public if he so chose.That doesn't mean he could close the beach though, that's a state law issue for which he'd still need to make applications to close off. At least the road problem would be sorted.And honestly if SpaceX becomes as big and valuable and economically important to Texas as we all expect over the next few years, I could see them passing some sort of bill that excludes the beach near Boca Chica from that particular beach closure law.
>>13265680That's strange, I didn't even know they had non-functioning Dragon mockups.
>>13265681>That doesn't mean he could close the beach though, that's a state law issue for which he'd still need to make applications to close off. At least the road problem would be sorted.I thought the same thing, if Elon does create Starbase, Texas, he can have a lot more freedom.But it seems like more people cry about not being able to get to the beach as opposed to not having access to the highway. That's why I feel it would be ideal for another road to be paved, granting constant access even if the existing highway is closed down.sUnless they are using the highway as the only entrance in order to keep people off the beach during testing. Who knows, people will still bitch regardless.Won't somebody think of the beetles.
>>13265686>I didn't even know they had non-functioning Dragon mockups.Its more of a shell with the appropriate dimensions and mating surfaces so they can make sure a new second stage will correctly connect to the Dragon without needing a fully built one nearby.Plus it allows them to not have to worry about damaging a multi-million dollar vehicle for an upcoming launch.
>>13265661>but I do think governments should start looking at social mechanisms for slow and gradual decrease of populationsThis will never, ever happen until the welfare state is abolished entirely because that is an intergenerational pyramid scam.
>>13265680That's crew-1 in the integration room, no mock up.
>>13265695People would still be able to access the beach, just not via the road. They have an inalienable right to be on the beach, they don't have an inalienable right to access it through private roads.Oh no, looks like the only road to access that entire strip of beach goes straight through Starbase. What a tragedy. Guess you'll have to buy a boat to access it!
>>13265709>That's crew-1 in the integration room, no mock up.Huh, you're probably right. It looks almost fake in the horizontal position. The holes near the top of it look open and hollow.
>>13265709Are the superdracos in the black circles then? I'd always thought they were in those bits with the flag/nasa logo on them there, they're shaped like engines but are closed at the bottom.
>>13265730You can see circle shapes, maybe they're covered when not in use
>>13265730>>13265739yeah, Super Dracos fly with covers on that get blown away in an abort
>>13263343>you will never receive your internet from Starlink-tans' flat tummy emissionsjust beam that stomach directly into my brain please Elon
Reminder starship will need 500 successful flights and landings as a bare minimum before it may carry people. Even one mishap will be enough to forever condemn it as a dangerous system compared to traditionally modeled safe and reliable launch systems.
>>13265757And pray tell, o concerned and virtuous messenger of public safety, what is a 'traditionally modelled safe and reliable' system in thine knowing eyes?Because if it begins with S, finishes with S, and has an L in the middle of it, I shall have you hanged by the testicles until dead for the crimes of baiting and shilling.
>>13265757That's fine, we'll just launch people in orion.
>>13265757Safety is for chumps and pussies, get in the fucking rocket loser.
>>13265669what is it with these renders and making the payload bay way shorter than it actually is, there's like 4 ring sections of payload bay before the nosecone even starts
>>13265757>traditionally modeled safe and reliable launch systems.
>>13265780if you build an Orion I will fight for your ability to launch it from Earth
>>13265776It must pass ASAP review. Naturally, the SLS system you yourself mentioned most certainly passes everything it needs to pass and more and there are no fears whatsoever regarding its safety and reliability.
>>13265810Get me a large bulldog clip and some rope, I have a hanging to perform.
>>13265681>that's a state law issueIs there a state law that says you can't destroy beaches with rocket explosions?>one failed full stack orbital launch laterNo more beach - no more problemsMaybe also bill Mexico for making gulf of Mexico a bit bigger while at that
>>13265669>the enemy satellite is booby-trapped>whoops, I guess I made the Kessler syndrome worseEven if it's not booby-trapped intentionally, a captured sat won't "understand" what's happening and will try to correct it's attitude and position, which you probably don't want to happen in your cargo hold...
>>13265820>Is there a state law that says you can't destroy beaches with rocket explosions?Well, no, not really>No more beach - no more problemsThe Texas consitutional law that guarantees public beach access defines the beach as the wet area between the water and the dry sand. You might note that the entire Boca Chica area for several miles inland consists of sand dunes.Delete the beach = bring the beach even closer to SpaceX facilitiesMaybe they could experiment with manipulating the longshore drift mechanics in the area by building groynes and strategically dumping barges full of rocks in shallow water and trying to grow the beach out to sea until it's just a useless narrow strip with a billion miles of sand dune behind it.
>>13265825>implying some puny sat thruster will do anything but waste its propellant
>>13265825>a captured sat won't "understand" what's happening and will try to correct it's attitude and positionPut a towel over the cage so it thinks it's time to sleep
>>13265757I have nothing wrong with this desu. That’s like 30 flights a year for 17 years, which would put the start of the “people mover” phase of a colony to 2038. I’m cool with that because personally, I don’t think we’ll have hundreds of thousands of people on Mars before the mid 2030s

>>13263476>"habitable zones"Pseudo spiritualist nonsense. Most of Earth is not capable of sustaining human life without tools and technology. In places it can it often does so badly even if they seem like a "heaven" at first glance. Florida for example, is a very unpleasant place to be if you did not have access to air conditioning and pesticides, and most likely fatal if you were further regulated into the tech tree.Point is "habitable zone" is a meme - humans are not entirely subjected to the whims of the environment.Space is simply an environment that requires tools beyond a sharp stone and dry wood.
>>13265929>Florida is fatal without access to ACEntirely wrong and I will not elaborate further.
>>13265929I don't think you understand what habitable zones are in the context of planetary and space sciences
>>13265934swampchads rise up
>>13265929iirc the concept of habitable zone only says anything about whether water is capable of existing in liquid form, since water is theorized to be essential for the development of life. you know, the whole universal solvent thing.it says nothing about being livable for humans

>>13265929Lol anon there were people at a neolithic level living in Florida just fine
>>13265943yeah have fun getting eaten by panthers
>>13265946The only kinds of cougars left in Florida I'd probably let catch me if you know what I mean.
>>13265946It's okay to admit you're just stupid.
>>13265789Actually, this render shows the ENTIRE payload bay being opened up on a hinge. >>13265946You're more likely to be gutted by a crackhead with a katana than have that happen in Florida. Seriously, Florida natives are a different breed of human species entirely.
>>13265936I thought the topic was on how certain political and ideological entities view habitable zones, rather than what habitable zones are as defined by astronomers.A bit like those who claim nobody can stand spaceflight because>I would go crazy if I can't go to the park every weekend!>>13265934Been there done that. Its hell and I swear it could be fatal without a tent to block the swarms of blood sucking parasites. Though if you reread the post you will see I did not say what you think I said.Humans can deal with the environment. Airless or not its a matter of dedication. Glorifying Earth as some sort of spiritual object that cannot or should not be "abandoned" is retarded and such behavior and claims should be treated accordingly.
>>13265851>That’s like 30 flights a year for 17 yearsThat is extremely far below what SpaceX is aiming for. SpaceX wants to start doing dozens and then hundreds of flights per year as soon as they get reusability nailed down, so probably sometime in 2022.For some reason, a lot of people completely underestimate the scale of what SpaceX is aiming for with starship.

>>13265959>I thought the topic was on how certain political and ideological entities view habitable zones, rather than what habitable zones are as defined by astronomers.lol wutNo you fucking retard. Habitable zone in the context of what we're talking about (in the SPACE FLIGHT GENERAL, not the sociology and anthropology general) is the distance from a star at which a hypothetical planet can sustain liquid water on its surface.Stop fucking posting you god damn tourist and try lurking for a while.
>>13265960It's a SHLV bigger than Saturn V.No way is it flying more than once or twice per year. I give it 10 flights total in its lifetime based on historical numbers.
>>13265969>So what's up with popsci going on about all this fearmongering about space colonization outside of habitable zones.That is the reason for my post.
>>13265970>No way is it flying more than once or twice per yearIt's already launching once a month with the second state testing.
>>13265973Lurk moar and you'd know. It's a variety of retarded special interest groups (dumb commies, idiots who think we should 'fix problems here before going to other planets', jews who don't want us escaping their planetary prison) who come up with whatever waffling nonsense they can think of to suggest why it's a bad idea to leave this planet.

We'd laugh for a few days and then immediately start gnashing of teeth and wailing when the government brings in hard new measures on safety in the private space flight sector that make it almost impossible for Musk to function.I hate this world.
