Patrons / YouTube members, check in a bit, I'll have the review link up so you can help catch any errors & assuming all goes well, video publishes Saturday!Estronaut elon interview 2 coming out on saturday i guess

>>14478793>>14478796nominal shutdown. no explosion
>>14478834someone here has his patreon, post it
>>14478758Scientifically, how likely is it that colonizing space will accomplish nothing besides spreading pointless suffering to other planets?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7nsv4n_Bgk
which would be cheaper to do>launch rockets with nets to bring down LEO sats>use space-to-space nets to bring down LEO sats
>>14478855What do you have against laser brooms?
>>14478849100%, because the mental ilness of nihilism/antinatalism, the mind-bending misery of modernity, and space travel all stem from the same root.
>>14478849>Hurr durr existence is suffering>totally discounting all the joys of existenceFaggots
>>14478849Tech will most likely progress quicker if there is a mars colony and the new tech can subsequently be used on earth as wellMaybe the martians will even innovate some new more effective ways of governing and these then adopted on earth too
>>14478860>laser broomsscience fiction
>>14478862>totally discounting all the joys of existenceSuch as?
>>14478861Is antinatalism really a mental illness if modernity is mind-bendingly miserable? It seems like the logical conclusion of life being consistently terrible.
>>14478875>Life is good because... IT JUST IS, OKAY?!?!>refuses to elaborate further
>>14478870Learning about the universe, reveling in its beauty, bringing joy to other people and yourself through hobbies and skills, developing yourself, jacking off. Those are some general examples form which inumerable specifics can be derived.
>>14478877>Is antinatalism really a mental illnessYes.>It seems like the logical conclusion of life being consistently terrible.No, it's the empircal consequence of a broken system that makes vulnerable midwits (i.e. you) mentally ill.
>>14478867And taking down 27,000 pieces of debris with nets isn't? No one could afford that.
>>14478849Don't care either way. You things need to progress to a certain point so that I can leave this solar system and eat stars until it's time to suplex the Demiurge into the metaphysical mat so hard he dies.
>>14478888if we can afford to send 27k satellites, we can afford to send 27k nets
>>14478855>bring downpeasant takeuse tug satellites to gather debris and dead sats into one spot to make a MEO junk moon
>>14478905but for what purpose
>>14478870Having a GF and going to a rocket museum with her
>>14478915To mine it, both for raw materials and still-usable components. Why would you send something BACK to earth after you've spent all that effort and money getting it into orbit? Why consign something to the clutches of earth once more after liberating it?Also a space station latched on to the side of a rubble pile satellite junkyard sounds neat.
>>14478849Suffering IS the point, faggot
>NS4.? instead of NS4.8>Implying that the booster could be destroyed
>>14478870Have you ever made something and someone told you it was cool/good? it's better than sex.
>>14478965This but unironically
>>14478884>>14478889At least you admit you're retarded and have no actual argument
>>14479014>b-b-but muh argumentsWhat argument is there to be had? Antinatalists are mentally ill. Antinatalist arguments have zero sway on people who aren't mentally ill because antinatalist premises are completely alien to people who aren't mentally ill.
>>14478957Consider lighting yourself on fire so that you can suffer more
>>14479021>Antinatalist arguments have zero sway on people who are NPCs because antinatalist premises are completely alien to people who are NPCs.FTFY
>>14479030You will never be human.
>>14478960Well you know what they say: don't count your boosters before they've launched.
>>14479030The prominence of actually antinatalism coincides with the prominence of modern mental illness and the raise of the NPC. Every other NPC is an antinatalist, or sympathizes with antinatalism, in constast with humanity's greatest thinkers, almost none of whom supported your mentally ill agenda.
>>14479025I don't exist, buckaroo, the suffering is for you guys
Is this that new faction of incels i've been hearing so much about? Honestly doesn't sound as funny as wanting to kill women but to each his own i guess.
>>14479030antinatalists want the extinction of humans, what is there to argue?
>>14479043its more generally about saying "you shouldn't have kids", its not really that new but for some reason has become kind of a normal positionnot only "i don't want kids", but "if you have kids, you are bad, kids are bad for the environment"
>>14479030>yo live is suggering :(((>i will continue mine ;((Hypocritical

https://eu.floridatoday.com/story/tech/science/space/2022/05/11/after-cruise-ship-scrubs-spacex-launch-coast-guard-fast-tracks-changes/9720954002/> Coast Guard fast-tracks changes after cruise ship scrubs SpaceX launch
>>14479068That's just globalist tricks. White people can't have kids but mbungo in Nigeria can have 8
>>14479085> Vlaun said the incident was at least partly caused by the maritime industry's use of paper for disseminating information. Captains and crews are often notified of hazards via paper since noteworthy obstacles are usually static and don't change often.>"In the maritime industry, rocks don't pop up overnight. Buoys don't move every day. We can publish these on paper," Vlaun said. "Four or five days or even a week old is probably still good data.">"But five-day-old space launch information is not worth the paper it's printed on," he said, referencing constantly shifting timelines and last-minute updates that include new parameters like unique flight trajectories.
>>14479087>the maritime industry's use of paper for disseminating informationWhat are they a fucking school district? This is sinful laziness.
I had a dream which was basically half lifeIn which some backwater experimental fusion reactor blew up and linked other worldsThis can't happen, right?
>>14479127haha I wouldn't worry about it
>suffering is bad>you only suffer if alive>therefore living is...le bad!>you are concerned about the wellbeing of others>this will cause suffering>but suffering is bad>you only experience this when alive>???>The only solu -ACK
>>1447912513 bil budget bro, they probably need a few bil more to modernize to phones or something
>>14479127it already happened, the aliens are just hiding
>>14479127CERNIt already begun 13 years 5 months and 19 fays ago
>>14479127other "realities" don't exist in the way you think. The chances of the universe existing are so infinitely small that ours is the only one in an infinity. Try going to another dimension and all you'll find is unexpanded space, ala pre big bang, except there never has been or ever will be a big bang in any universe besides our own. Good for ftl travel though, because spacetime was expanded by the big bang, an equivalent distance in a dimension without one is at a ratio of something like an inch to a lightyear or something, I forgot the exact number
>>14479068Antinatalism isnt about kids being bad for the environment. It's about the pain and suffering that you inflict upon someone by bringing them into being. Nonexisters have literally zero worries.
>It's about the pain and suffering that you inflict upon someone by bringing them into being. Nonexisters have literally zero worries.Imagine being this dysgenic.
>>14479223>It's about the pain and suffering that you inflict upon someone by bringing them into beingWhy should anyone care about this?
>14479223>Worrying about others>nonexisters have zero worriesits not that easy in rocketrybut it certainly is that easy in hipocrisy medical advice? kill yourself
>>14479197>we have an infinitesimally small chance of existing and just got really stupid lucky somehowvs>we have a 100% chance of existing because god made usthings like this make me wish I wasn't an atheist.
Stop feeding this tard
>>14479233A parent not caring about their children is terrible. >>14479223You're not going to convince anyone to not have children because sex feels good.
>>14479249>A parent not caring about their children is terrible.Why does "caring about your children" have to include your antinatalist wank?
antinatalists need to walk their talk and rope themselves
>>14479253Because being a parent involved caring about their from before they are even born. A poor person bringing a child to the world is terrible because their child will suffer all the destitutions that you suffered plus more.
>>14479197you goof, if you go to another dimension then you're in the place where /that/ universe is the only one in an infinity
>>14479257>Because being a parent involved caring about their from before they are even bornWhy does caring about them before they are born have to include your antinatalist wank?
>>14479260I never liked those moralizing bears anyway.
>>14479261What are you talking about? Anti-natalism is a right choice from the start if you even care about the future of your child's suffering. Otherwise, live in bliss of ignorance and procreate. Then wonder why your child is suffering in this world.
>>14479257Those fucking dumb assholes have a duty to continue my bloodline
>>14479263>Anti-natalism is a right choiceWhy?
>>14479263suffering is part of life, are you even human if you don't have it?imagine being hooked up into some brain-interface where all you experience is constant happiness and joy, feel no painwhats the point? you are basically a vegetable
>>14479264Enjoy your 14 day diurnal cycle
>>14479269You have to continue to read and accept that suffering of your child is bad. Otherwise, we can't get through this. If you believe raping your children is good because suffering isn't bad, or that beating your child to death with a club because of your alcoholism is good because their suffering isn't bad, then we're talking past each other.
>>14479271>suffering is part of lifeThats because because your parents choose to bring suffering to you. They're part of the problem that brought suffering to your existence.
>>14479273>suffering of your child is bad.Sure. So what? How do you get from "X is bad" to "any degree of X must be avoided at all costs"?
>>14479279There's no "all costs" there's no cost to not procreating and not bringing suffering to your children. There's all the cost to bringing suffering to your children.
Stop responding to the antinatalist, he shits up threads quickly because it’s such an unthinkably retarded concept in game theory. Stop responding every time he decides to duck into the thread every once in a while to fuck up discussion about spaceflight.
>>14479282>There's no "all costs"Since we're considering potential people here (your cult's idea), my kid loses out on life. That's sad! :^(
>>14479282of course there is, you also eliminate all the joys the kid could have, the joy you have, further the extinction of the human race and so on
>>14479289No one cries about nutting daily and throwing away trillions of sperms.
>>14479291Not relevant. Since we're supposed to accept the premise that we have a responsibility towards people that don't exist (according to you), I would hate to deprive my child of a life.
>>14479290>>14479282to add to this, most people see the benefits to massively outweigh the drawbacks (some suffering)you treat any suffering at all somehow as outweighing everything else possible, its fucking retarded
>>14479290You're not responsible for extinction of human race, further more, at the very least, if you really want to bring a child to the world, you must do so in such a way that the most basic necessity of your children will never be compromised, aka the financial security.99% of children born aren't born in a secure funding.
SPACE FLIGHT GENERALFLYING IN SPACE GENERAL
Still waiting for antinatalism troons to explain why I should care about my duties towards people that don't exist, but only in ways that are compatible with antinatalist troon agendas.
>>14479313only if cucking your brother
https://webb.nasa.gov/content/webbLaunch/whereIsWebb.htmlthe where is Webb page has been updated to include progress of instrument calibrations
https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1PlKQarOROaKEThe entire stream is interesting for space industry.
>>14479087Why not just force SpaceX to keep a schedule, fucking asshats
>>14479065anti-natalists are the moderates when it comes to negative utilitarianismthere are radical suffering abolitionists, who wish for eradication of pain by extinction of all life in the universeif you anyone plans on writing a novel or something, they would be great to base fictional terrorist sect about. Killing billions to save quadrillions from suffering in the future is the kind of batshit crazy logic religious fanatics operate on.
>>14479089Everything they are talking about is like 2 weeks work for one guyGoddamn bureaucrats
>>14479324what is that in your picture?
New Starlink availability map. Lot of countries are available.
>>14479331its not only about the schedule, its about the different flight trajectories changing the exclusion zone, which means that the ships can probably still leave and come, but have to perhaps go the long way around or something
>>14479346lmao, what is the brown supposed to indicate? Bad goy cunts?
>>14479346First worlder bros... we won.
>>14479346it also has info when stuff is coming or expanding, i wonder if places like africa are just going to be served by laserlinks and then have the groundstations in western/developed countries so some random nigger doesnt steal the radomes to use as a pot or something
>>14479352>China>Russia>Iran>Cuba>VeneuzelaCommies and dictatorships
>>14479352not coming in the foreseeable future, probably due to sanctions and/or the country not allowing them I would guess Iran, venezuela, russia and belarus are due to sanctions and china probably due to them simply not allowing it as people would get around the firewall easier I guess
>>14479274I’m glad my parents had me, can’t say the same about yours
>>14479324It looks like melting chocolate ice cream
>>14479125Space is hard. Paper is proven technology.
>>14479125All marine vessels should require the use of internet when they are docking/leaving atleast to get the updated data.
>>14479125Paper can’t be hacked or easily changed. In a lot of ways it’s more secure than online data
>>14478758>OP pic is not of the black hole
>>14479378Planet-centric viewmodels don’t really make intuitive sense. All orbits are circles, it’s why I don’t use this mod honestly
heliocentrists get the rope

>>144793461 month ago
>>14479328>NASA had spent a billion per astronaut sent into orbit before Commercial Crew (350 billion spent since Apollo)>Now SpaceX charges 55 million
>>14479714>a billion per astronaut sent into orbit before Commercial CrewThis seems excessive. Soyuz seats were like $80 million, and a Shuttle was like half a billion per launch, and carries 7 astronauts.
>>14479680>tfw no comfy taliban shitposts via starlinkBantz would be legendary
SN16 got decapitated. The megabay killed it.
>>14479720>half a billion per launchI think that's an extreme lower bound of the estimate, usual figures I've seen exceed one billion, but that's still less than Lori's claim.NASA annual budget's averaged 20 billion from 1970 to 2010, that's 800 billion. How much of that was for human spaceflight? The wiki claims the Shuttle program cost 196 billion, still a bit short. Maybe Lori meant all the costs related to humans in space?
>>14479125Up until the past few years, marine Internet was a joke. Now even a sailboat can mount some solar panels on the deck and use cell phones when close to shore, and soon Starlink when under way. The hardest part of that will be gyro-stabilized antenna mounts since ships move in three axes on the waves.
>>14479328>10,000 USD to send one kilogram into orbit>will cost a lot more to remove that kilogram (deorbit it)The panel appears pessimistic that de-orbiting junk will be met by the market any time soon
>>14479792Simply make a giant sheet of jello to catch all the debris. EZ
Nukechads keep winning.https://www.wsj.com/articles/is-this-man-talking-california-into-nuclear-power-11651264431>A recent UC Berkeley poll co-sponsored by The Times found that 44% of California voters support building more nuclear reactors in the Golden State, with 37% opposed and 19% undecided — a significant change from the 1980s and 1990s.>The poll also found that 39% of voters oppose shutting down Diablo Canyon, with 33% supporting closure and 28% unsure.>mfw even Californians are coming around because nukes keep the lights on and enable carbon capture and desalinationSorry, Casey. Maybe you can build the panels for Mars.
>>14479794Or lasers in space to melt small shit the size of a quarterWhile larger detectable objects can be avoided
>>14479794>>14479796Quick, tell them!
>>14479798What who? We're already doing two of those, avoidance and there are some debris capture program.Laser melting may likely be met with military hesitancy due to weaponization of space.
>>14479795is that enough to change the insane peoples minds that are in power?the lobbying by "green" groups (paid by the oil and gas industry) has been relentless for decades
>>14479800It depends how hard Newsom cheats this fall.
>>14479738spacex has now destroyed more launch vehicles than have been built for artemis
>>14479799So just use the lasers to melt anyone who complains lmao.
>>14479806you can't solve every problem with violence
>>14479340Phobos, Stickney crater.
>>14479627Alright, I thought that engines would be installed while Booster was on the OLM.
>>14479812If you can't solve a problem with violence, you are clearly not using enough violence.
>>14479840>If you can't solve a problem with SRBs, you are clearly not using enough SRBs.
SRB is haram
SRBs are violence
>>14479310Troons don't exist, because they are pretending to be something they aren't. Thus to acknowledge a troon would be deny existence
>>14479795>enable carbon captureNigga just grow some trees and dump them in the ocean you don't need nukes for that retard
>>14479909>three shuttle SRBs and seven Delta II kerolox coresWhy the fuck weren't they mass producing these in the 90s to loft the ISS? Look at the size of that fairing!

What do you predict will be the biggest discoveries by JWST?When I read that one of Hubble's biggest achievements is mapping dark matter I question their legitimacy. So much of astrophysics is pure bullshit, it does not deserve to be called a scientific field.
>>14478766How do you explain me seeing shadows being affected by the craters on the moon through my own eyes or the rotation of the moons of jupiter and movement of the cloud bands you fucking stupid black gorilla nigger.
>>14479500anon that object is not spherical at all and this fact should hint at you that it doesnt have enough mass to be a planet
>>14478861lol leave sfg if you hate space travel so much kike
>>14479520look like one of those tokamak reactors
>>14479935>Why the fuck weren't they mass producing these in the 90s to loft the ISS?But then its harder to justify the Space Shittle, can't have that!
>>14480015Didn't they say it would be able to detect industrialization on planets or some shit?
>>14479795just build one huge plant in those mountains near LA and cool it with cooling towers. Its the safest way
>>14479014just kill yourself ok? stream it for us too
>>14479520So how did they fix it? Pablo went inside the downcomer and pounded it with a hammer?
>>14480015>What do you predict will be the biggest discoveries by JWST?Well the discovery of certain atmospheres on some exoplanets will take center stsage. But the early universe discoveries will be important too
>>14478881the brain produces chemicals to make people happy if they have healthy neurochemistry so it literally just it dilbert

>>14480082sample-return mission when?
>>14480015>So much of astrophysics is pure bullshitIt's very easy to ignorantly dismiss something, it's much harder to disprove standard cosmology or formulate a new cosmology which can explain the data (pic related) without new assumptions.
>>14480213Whenever there is data that disproves them they just fit the curves again. That's the problem. Most of their theories are unscientific and impossible to disprove.> it's much harder to disproveThis applies to everything. Prove that there is no god.
>>14480199Going to be kino
>>14480228trust the science
When will we be unironically two weeks away from Starship hop?
>>14480241In two weeks
>>14480228Thats not how it works retardYou take the simplest explanation that fits the fact without too much ad hoc stuff, new data is gathered just to disprove the current theories (that should presict fit multiple data that regard the phwnomenon from different virepoints) constantly, that is how science progressesDisproving god is impossible, disproving scientific theories is thebedrock of science, big difference
>>14480053I spend many times that a day jacking off. Do not dwell on wasted time
>>14480228If an observation can be resolved by fitting parameters then it never disproved it. Something being disproven is final, it means it cannot be reconciled with the data with any amount of fitting. You don't understand what it means. And no, these models are not infinitely flexible, that's a load of shit.
Anyone got the link to estronaut's musk interview preview?

>>14479795Public opinion is inconsequential, no government can afford to build many nuclear plants.Also if you got that image from /sfg/ you got it from me and I disavow you sullying it with retarded nuclear shitposting.
>>14480213astroanon are you excited for the preliminary Webb results
>>14479360The glowniggers want to use Starlink for firewall and monitor free internet access in ChinaAllowing Starlink in China will make it impossible for the Chinese to track them down with passive listening posts
>>14480282>no government can afford to build many nuclear plantsAccording to whom?
>>14479384If you can turn it on and off it's helpful for planning reentries for spaceplanes so you can land on the runway instead of hoping you land near Dessert or KSC
A tour at Starbase?
>>14480292Wow, two dozen reactors that were planned ages ago and located mostly on existing nuclear sites. Nuclear bros we are winning!
>>14480306Why are you moving the goalpost?
>>14480301One of many
>>14480306WE need to start building massive and efficient nuclear power plants.
>>14480330I'd prefer us to build large collections of mid sized SMRs instead of big monolithic reactors, but yes.
>>14480311It's not moving the goal posts, the world is a big place and two dozen of anything isn't many, as shown by the fact that they are barely managing to replace all the reactors that are being retired and the average reactor age is only increasing. Once the US and France retire most of their reactors that graph will look like a bell curve. China was responsible for many of the recent installations but they've seriously pulled back their nuclear ambitions. Last (you) from me, you're free to remain delusional.
>>14480301They do a lot of goodwill/PR tours for government officials/environmental groups etc to try and keep any pushback to a minimum.
>>14479197>try going to another dimension and all you will find is unexpanded spaceUsing this line of thinking, what if entering another dimension IS the catalyst for a big bang? What if some asshat in another dimension whoopsied his ways into another dimension, causing his own universe to collapse and get sucked through the tear, expelled into "ours", and this is what the universe is now?
>>14480279It's out for paypiggies. The last interview previews were posted here, I wonder where that anon is
>>14480356>China was responsible for many of the recent installations but they've seriously pulled back their nuclear ambitions.Because they are facing total regime collapse within 15 yrs
>>14480445It has been brought to my attention that there are chinamen here RIGHT NOW who have not been reminded in the last 30 seconds that Xi Jingping is a dum fathead who looks like Winnie The Pooh.Lets have a quick rundown on are bear and I’ll let them decide how Xi stacks up next to him, because maybe that's unfair1. Winnie the Pooh is a fat bear that wears no pants2. Winnie the Pooh enjoys hunny (honey) and his most famous adventure of all is the story of his retrieving hunny at great risk to himself from bees by pretending to be a raincloud and then enjoying the fruits of his labor obtained by the sweat of his brow3. Winnie The Pooh (who looks like Xi Jingping) is not a communist4. Winnie The Pooh has never once lost in a fight to cute little birds that he thought were threatening his power over the Hundred Acre Wood5. Winnie The Pooh knows what he doesn't know and isn't afraid to ask for help from his frens, which he has6. Winnie the Pooh’s pal Gopher can innovate and knows the difference between high quality steel and pig iron7. Winnie the pooh has never massacred citizens of the Hundred Acre wood with tanks8. Winnie the Pooh maybe has a fat head but he’s actually a very intelligent bear9. Winnie The Pooh (who, again, looks like Xi Jingping if you put pants on him) is a beloved figure across all of the world and you can gauge a man’s character by what he thinks of WinnieDecide for yourself.Can you imagine looking like Winnie The Pooh? A bear that wears no pants. Now I’m a huge fan of Poohbear, but looking like him? What kind of buffoon would allow such a Winnie The Pooh nopantswearing son of a bitch to be the leader of even a local deli, let alone be his slave? I guess what I’m trying to say here is that Xi Jingping looks like Winnie The Pooh, a fat bear that wears no pants, and if I were his subject (slave) I’d kill myself.

>>14479939NTA but you would never use nuclear energy for that, the high electricity cost would require highly efficient power-to-gas plants so you would be paying out the ass in two ways. SpaceX for example will probably buy solar and wind energy for a future e-methane plant and operate it at full capacity only when energy prices are cheap. The plant wouldn't have to be located anywhere near Boca Chica in order for them to be carbon neutral, they also probably wouldn't need to produce the same amount they consume because some of the carbon will end up outside of the atmosphere. That or they just pay someone like Casey Handmer to do it for them. It's only a matter of time, rockets are just a tiny part of global emissions but once Starship starts launching frequently the amount of kvetching will be intense.

Why are trans people almost always autists? I see so many fag flags and she/her on twitter accounts that post about spaceHas this been researched?
>>14480228Science isn't black box machine learning models.Yet.
>>14480496>something elegant and simple to de-orbit the majority of it.Ahem, laser broom. I don't know why people presume it requires some type of science fiction death ray and the idea of sending spacecraft to tens of thousands of different orbits in order to collect debris is utter madness. According to research done by the Los Alamos National Lab: > A laser of just 20kW average power and state-of-the-art detection capabilities could clear near-Earth space below 1100km altitude of all space debris larger than 1 cm but less massive than 100kg in about 4 years.
>>14480533Because the space industry for a long time has been limited to college educated people who live in urban centers, spacex for example heavily recruits from california. You aren't gonna find lots of right wingers or even apolitical people from those regions of the country.

>>14480284I am indeed. It's nice to see excited the community is and people in general, and it's such a leap in capability that there is lots of exciting stuff on the table. I'll make some shitty images myself when the ERS gets published.
>>14480563Yes, but why?
>>14480105Those joints are soo badCan't wait to see those burning right off on reentry. I doubt even the active cooling by leaking methane through it will help
>>14480572Center path is the default. Lefty autists basically get bullied into trooning out. Right wing autists are the ones who the world won't leave alone to maek rogget but aren't susceptible to leftism.
>>14480550It would effectively be a weak anti-satellite or anti-hypersonic-missile weapon so perhaps various governments and some members of the science community are weary about starting some type of laser arms race. In fact the US government sanctioned China for developing a much more powerful 1 MW space laser but they seem undeterred.
>>14480351SMRs are for cucks, reducing the cost of the nuclear island doesn't mean much in the long run if the secondary ends up being the same price. Large reactors aren't going anywhere due to economies of scale so it's best to embrace large MSRs

I am tired of Earth. These people. I'm tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives. They claim their labours are to build a heaven, yet their heaven is populated with horrors.

>>14481288It's been a long time since a read or watched any media relating to this but I believe the canon is that everything is predetermined and has already happened so he follows it like a script. It's intended analogous to the average man, everything you've ever done is what would have happened anyway.

Hypothetically, say you were a colonist leader on a habitable exoplanet with cobtinental-sized resources, and came upon a primitive civilization, what would you do next?For me, I’d create a hunger games-esque tournament, except also give them live streaming gopros and meth to earn survivability sponsors.

>>14481458exterminate. the universe is for humans
>>14481481No need to do that. Instead letting them have autonomy and mingling will help the fragile colony survive harsh years to come. The question of incineration without any benefit is a waste of time, effort and possible future. These locals may instead be a guide against the whole world in combating other hostile tribes, animals, environments, etc.Think native American guides for early settlers and expansion forward.

>>14481578>Gets fucking shredded by the windIt's not that easy in rocketry
>>14481593Okay, launch it during the eye for kino footage
>>14480356That's right, but what do you think is the cause? Looking at my country, I see massive schizophrenia caused by fossil fuel lobby and "environmentalists". Looking at California, I see corrupt politicians that were actively fighting against nuclear power.
Second stage spotted from ISS
Hop when?no serioudly when is the fucking orbital test habbening im tired of waiting for it ill go arson the FAA if they delay it by one month in minecraft
>>14481617>arsondoxing using public information is more effectiveBut FAA thing is basically done, and if it's a FONSI, maybe 1 month after.If the survey fucks them, then probably another year after the Florida site is fully operational.
>>14481617good news is that faa delays are probably over now, the section 106 review or whatever its called was completed. we're probably gonna see several months of raptor firing testing on superheavy before launch, so expect to see launch anywhere from late summer to fall (for real this time)
>>144816172 weeks for another possible delay
>>14481617We won't see a hop for a long time, the next test is static fire (probably more than one) and then the orbital test.If you look at flyover photos, you'll see that methane tanks are now overlapping the landing pad. So the only way to do a hop and recover a ship is to catch it.
>>14481630>N-NOOO YOU CANT USE PROPULSIVE LANDING TO LAND NEXT TO METHANE TANKS!!!Only if you’re not a pussy.
So how many launches has SpaceX done this year so far? And how many weeks have there been this year?>>14481630Next hop we might see could be them hopping tanker starships to the floating platforms in the gulf lol
>>14481563That's why TROPICS is launching soon, to capture data from this year's storms! LV0010 is almost ready to put in the box and ship to the Cape.
>>14481636>So how many launches has SpaceX done this year so far? And how many weeks have there been this year?21 so far, within 19 weeks. It will be 22 launches if they launch in sunday again.
>>14481650Damn, more then 1 launch per week launch frequency already. Maybe 60 launches really is a possibility.

>>14481720is he going slowly enough?
>>14481606What of the early history of nuclear before Chernobyl scared the world? Nuclear plants were still expensive their creation required excessive government spending as the payback period was too long to warrant much private investment. Nearly every improvement in safety or efficiency since then has only added to the cost and countries like China have figured out that removing red tape or reducing construction time still doesn't make it cost effective, it will have the highest capital cost of any major source of power. The final nail in the coffin is that most energy markets underwent liberalisation and electricity is now being bought and sold like any other commodity so the last thing you want is expensive baseload power because it will often end up without any buyer, you may even have to pay someone to take it from you if you have district heating contracts to meet so turning down or shutting off the plant isn't an option. Of course there is always a new and better nuclear plant someone is pitching, some of them may actually be a step in the right direction if they are more power dense than traditional plants or they reduce complexity but without a major breakthrough in material science or whatever the fuck nuclear as a source of power will remain untenable, it's like rooting for a corpse.

Starbase tour in ~6 hours (?)
>>14481729If we want only renewables or nuclear, a mix might be cheaper than purely renewablesBatteries are pretty expensive still, which will increase the effective cost of renewables
>>14481743> Part 1Lol
>>14481724>>14481699Looks like the rock fractured and eroded until a piece broke off and slid downhill. Not the giant crack to the left. Would be interesting to know how long ago it happened. Could be (geologically) recent, maybe CO2 freezing and expanding in the cracks.
>>14481743I feel like there probably isn't gonna be much new info.
>>14481750Estronaut is cucking us. He knows his paypigs will feed him until he’s satisfied enough to release part 2.
>>14481749I'm beating a dead horse here but they don't mix, already in most places nuclear plants cost more to operate than to build a new plant of another type and that assumes they have a capacity factor of around 90%, that's about to get cut in half with the amount of cheap renewable energy that will flood the market unless the government steps in with ridiculous tariffs for nuclear. The only thing that may survive is natural gas as it's highly dispatchable and the plants are really cheap to build so it doesn't matter if they're shut down much of the time. Plus with electrofuel they become carbon neutral and an alternative to battery energy storage. >Batteries are pretty expensive still, which will increase the effective cost of renewablesYes but mind you that isn't a cost that needs to be paid until renewable penetration in most markets is much higher, until then energy storage is only getting added because it's already profitable when stored for a short duration. As battery and wholesale electricity prices fall it will then make sense to extend the storage duration, but seasonal battery energy storage is a complete meme and it would be far cheaper just to build out more renewables.
>>14481835How expensive is electrofuel compared to batteries? Natural gas would need.to be banned or something in a situation like that, or the electrofuel cheaper than nat gas
>>14481835You keep saying how nuclear plants are uncompetitive, but I see them being cancelled for ideological reasons. When you want to build one, you suddenly have dozens of "environmental" groups starting a protest and even if you manage to build one, in countries such as Germany, a mix of stupidity and corruption will cause to phase out such plants. I think not even fossil fuel plants are fought as hard as nuclear.

>>14481946Thanks>>14481948rip anon :(
>>14481957Some Russiananon should be able to do it since all copyright protections of foreign IPs has been lifted as a war measure.
>>14481880Electrofuel companies have been hesitant to state any real numbers on the cost but they're all making the bet that they will have access to some real cheap electricity and of course there are many other applications for carbon neutral fuel. Actually the cheaper renewables get the less market there will be for electrofuel as energy storage because companies will build out solar farms even if they only have a buyer on cloudy days and the resulting overcapacity will greatly decrease the amount of long-term energy storage required.The Terraform Industries white paper is a good read if you want to get into the weeds. https://caseyhandmer.wordpress.com/2022/02/03/terraform-industries-whitepaper/>>14481917>You keep saying how nuclear plants are uncompetitive, but I see them being cancelled for ideological reasonsThose are not mutually exclusive but in most countries there is little in the way preventing them from adding more reactors to existing nuclear sites and it's not being done because even that would be an absurd investment without heavy subsidies. Red tape has been a convenient excuse for the failure of nuclear but reality is much more nuanced. Even if it was the root cause trying to get the government to act reasonable is like screaming at the sky. Kek, nuclear supporters act like they just have to convince the YouTube comment section and everything would be solved.
>>14481966>muh climate buzzwordsKyle absolute state of solarkeks, this is how they compete with nuclear, with words. The future is nuclear.
Requesting the SN15 landing webm
>>14481978Thanks, but to be more specific I was thinking of the one where you can see the flip, it's shot from a bit further away
>>14481974You will eat your hat and be happy.
>>14481966It's not nuanced, it's pretty much the opposite. Germany has been pushing anti-nuclear propaganda for decades, while at the same time claiming that they want to protect the environment. It doesn't seem honest. The result are the highest energy prices in Europe, one of the worst air quality caused by coal power plants.
>>14481986Actually now that I think about it, it probably wasn't SN15, maybe SN12 or something? In any case it was a cool panoramic shot of the flip and landing
>>14482037This was SN10
>>14481966But is nuclear really that expensive really? Or is the situation more like what the space industry was before spacex. Regulations and enviromental groups make it so difficult that enough arent built and the learning curve is extremely slow
>>14482046Hell yeah this was the one
Estronaut interview recap:Rapid reuseLower tonnage cost to 100$ to Martian surfaceStarlink pez dispenserReducing starship flaps to only two at the bottomChines maybe permanentReduction of grid fins to 2Flap locations are going to be adjusted over iterationsTiles expand to fill gapsMega bay = many workstations for wagies No more tents, permanent factory under construction S24 to be the first in orbital trajectory Some kind of exhaust used for small maneuvers in spaceMusk raged at estronaut for saying dumb shit.
>>14481946>girth > length>megabay is ~30-40 feet taller but its girthy>highbay can have ~2-3 workstations>megabay can have ~10-12 workstations
>>14482068>ullage gas for atitude/rcs control>switched from old nitrogen gas to hot gas
Musk also explicitly mentions that Starship is NOT a space plane. It’s over spaceplanesisters.
>>14482065100k per ton to surface of marsorders of magnitude
>>14482065>Musk raged at estronaut for saying dumb shit.Out of all people, why is he the only one allowed to record tours around Starbase? Musk alone talking about Starbase would be a much better option.
>>14482065best flap is no flap
>>14482083Okay but to be fair, I was on 2x speed and am using a broken phone speaker so I misheard and am wrong, but as a reasonable retort, 100k$ is the same as 100$ if you have constant inflow of incomprehensible wealth.
>>14482065>Reduction of grid fins to 2But then you lose one axis of rotation (eg. you have roll and pitch but no yaw).
>>14482094Watch the vid or ask some fag in L2, I’m a biologist not a physicist.
>>14482077real spaceplanes have never been tried
>>14482009Tearing out working power plants just to replace them is expensive hence the high electricity costs but Germany is still just a single country and notable because they took such a hard line against nuclear, most other governments are indifferent. France is a pro-nuclear country with low electricity prices and they are fucked, tons of aging reactors that they cannot afford to replace. Their state run utility is heavily in debt as well.>>14482050There is nothing like rocket reusability for the nuclear industry. Nuclear could never match the learning rate of a technology like solar where cells are being made by the millions and constantly iterated on. Reactors should be very large for the sake of efficiency and power density but with SMRs at best you get a few hundred reactors which is basically a limited production run. It's been like 80 years of nuclear and they are only on generation IV.
>>14482088this is the most optimized design, it might beat starship
>>14482110>S50 will beat S24Yes, I do agree, that does sound about right.

>>14482327>>14482331still not gonna watch it
>>14482335its pretty cool, at least the first 2 minutes
>>14480797Growing up overseas or with first generation immigrant parents and being surrounded by other people who talk with Asian American accents.It’s hard learn a second language so well you sound like a native speaker, especially when the phonemes are very different, which is the case with the phonemes of East Asian and Southeast Asian languages and the phonemes used in English.
Can america just ban every language that isn't english already?
>>14481073You could reduce all of Alabama to a fine ash and the US would improve in every statistic, especially number of Alabamas.
so they are dumping the cold gas thruster alltogether, just going to use the ullage gas and the pressure should be plenty (they have more than enough for maneuvers and are going to end up dumping some even after the maneuvers)
>>14481228Too late, retard. You’ve already seen my post with your own eyes, so you believe I’m right.
>>14481410wtf I love schizophrenia now
>>14481481You can tell they’re bad because they have space dreadlocks, like in Predator
>>14482087It’s in line with his let-other-people-promote-me they-do-it-all-for-free policy.
>>14482109It's also been at 40 years since different reactor designs have been tested other than PWR. It literally is just bureaucracy that we don't have competitive nuclear today, even though you do lie about current nuclear being uncompetitive
>>14482398>we don't have competitive nuclear today, even though you do lie about current nuclear being uncompetitiveYou deboonked yourself in the same sentence you crazy son of a bitch.
>>14482398Nuclear is noncompetitive if you live in the remote Alaskan wilderness digging up fucking salted meat.For everyone else, no chance. You can overprovision wind and solar for a fraction of the cost.People are building nuclear today for contingency, not for price anon.Small Modular Reactors do have a future though. You could pop some of the current 60MW designs into a Starship
>>14479025> he didn't actually suffer at all#SendMonksToMars
> solarfag is back advocating running industrial society on dilute energy ghastly
>>14482481Universal suffrage was a mistake
>>14482481First of all I never left, second of all not all solar posters are me for instance that last one, thirdly say that to my face when not online and see what happens.
>>14482469>Small Modular Reactors do have a future though>posts an overpriced mini PWRNuscale is lame as shit, you need six of them to even operate a single turbine, they can't sale them as a 60 mw plant. Since they operate at such a low temperature they can't take advantage of the smaller more efficient and high temperature coal turbines.I think they are mainly being used as the foot in the door for new nuclear to finally get the NRC off their ass and license a new nuclear plant that literally can't fuck up
>>14482560>this little mother fucking is basically fucking you, your mother and the whole space industry. There's nothing your little weasel ass can do about it>would you like know more?
>>14482571>would you like know more?Yes
NEW KINO JUST DROPPED!https://youtu.be/rt9Z0hyHaBw
>>14482576Then enlist today
>>14482579They made some poor guy sing for an hour straight
>>14482590akctually I'm already a beetle expert, I know that eradicating them would be as simple as cutting down their host plant the Marsh Fimbry. They still live because I have shown them mercy.
>>14482603its just surreal to hear some children's youtube video song singing about semi-obscure solar system objects like 2014 UZ224 and 20000 Varuna
>>14482481The anti-Zubrin schizo is a solarfag.
>>14482627>The anti-Zubrin schizoKek, this isn't a thing. Were you the guy that got upset after it was revealed he was a cringy Marxist who joined a cult that scammed pensioners out of their money?
Estronaut is based. Presentation newfags get the helicopter ride.
POCKOCMOC does it again!
>>14482643Zubrin is definitely not a Marxist wtf are you talking about?
>>14482654Look up the word "was", ELS-kun.
>Elon unwilling to admit that it's not orbitalcucked
>>14482651paypigs need to stop enabling this shit
>>14482662You mean the first orbital test flight of Starship?
>>14482661Provide source or you are making it up and also are collage fag.
>>14482682Nta but it's incredibly common knowledge.The only good thing Zubrin has ever done is NSWR.
>>14482687>Traditional Marxism attempted to argue against free enterprise by saying that capitalism causes poverty and that, therefore, socialism is necessary. That didn't work, because it was false.https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/robert_zubrin_782822Only thing that came up. You are now officially collage fag, a Marxist and a filthy earther. Please redeem yourself from the thread sir.
>>14482693Zubrin redeemed in my eyes, based in others. let freedom ring!
>>14482693This has literally been discussed in the thread before you schizophrenic newfag nigger.
>>14482682http://lyndonlaroucheforum.org/index.php?showtopic=213&st=0&You can also find articles written by him back when he worked for the Fusion Energy Foundation which was a front for Lyndon LaRouche political campaigns. They did the aforementioned robbing pensioners of their money. >>14482693Newfag, lurk more.
>>14482699>>14482700Oldfags are bullish on Zubrin
>>14482703No that meme is stale. Dolphin dick posting is the new hotness.
Ummmmmmmmmmmmm Zubrin bros? He wasn't actually a scammer, right? http://wlym.com/archive/fusion/fusion/19801212-fusion.pdf
>>14482703>I also learned that he really, really doesn't like environmentalists, and this is when I realized something: his views on the subject sound suspiciously similar to a certain old man we all know and (do not) love. Zubrin has railed against them for not only being "evil" and for being advocates of "zero-growth" development, but of pretty much hating all humanity and wanting to oppose industrial and technological progress in order to destroy the poor and weak and a bunch of other things that are largely exaggerations.Based? Jokes aside: only one person there says he was a Marxist and that’s from memory only. They could very well be thinking of someone else or exaggerating for attention.
>>14482737At that point in time the LaRouche cult was a Marxist organization and they made money selling related literature.
>>14482737if you ever read merchants of despair or energy victory, you'd know he's basically a neocon
>>14482737>exaggerating for attentionAlso that's retarded, no one outside this place gives a shit about Zubrin. He is a meme someone came up with and the joke was lost on newfags.
>>14482746Ted Kaczynski wanted to be a tranny, but that doesn't stop 4chan from revering him
>>14482752Nice try, solarfag. The patriarchy is powered by the atom and it's here to stay.
>>14482758Some people would have dodged a bullet if he was on estrogen and t suppressants.
>>14482758How is Zubrin anything like Ted Kaczynski beyond that he goes long periods without showering? >>14482762Is this solarfag in the room with us right now?
>>14482752why do newfags, such as yourself, try so hard to revise history? every zubrin post has been archived. and i was there
>>14482772Zubrin is frighteningly similar to ol Ted. Ironically, Bob didnt have the balls to do what had to be done. The halls of Congress have yet to be painted by the blood of the obstructionist Earther
>>14482779>The two years I spent forcing a dumb meme is real /sfg/ history! I didn't get caught up in my own bullshit, we've always wanted to have sweaty gay sex with ZubrinHonestly go outside, touch grass, have sex, etc. You at the very least need a long break from this place. Zubrin isn't here, you don't have to defend his honor, if he has any left after being a scam artist.
>>14482794Do you have the whole picture?
>>14482800>sex with zubrinwhere the fuck do i sign up?
>>14482813Meet him in the bathroom at the Mars Society convention. If you're lucky Tom Mueller will join you.
Ummm... Starliner bros?
>>14482820Mr. Zubrin is happily married and would never be unfaithful to his lovely wife, Hoppe.
>>14482833Whatever, just don't drag your bullshit over to the start of the new thread like last time.
>>14482758Ted was a delusional fag
