so one starship launch + 4 refuels for 2 mil each would be 10 mil and starship should be able to land 100 tons, so that would be exactly 100 dollars/kg
I guess its not taking into account the cost of the starship tself, the 2 mil is the fully considered cost of the launch with multiple reuses, so idk what the actual cost for the mars starship would be, but can it be as low as 2 mil?

It was a mistrial because the government seized their money in advance despite nonprofits being ineligible for involuntary bankruptcy. The government then went after them individually leading to LaRouche's conviction for fraud. Also he was an informant for the FBI and had an inner circle consisting of almost exclusively Jews so it's no surprise some of them walked free.

It would have been to interesting to see what Russia did with it after the fall of the USSR. They did paint "Mir 2" on its side so I imagine had it successfully made orbit it would have been titled as such. So would they have just let the weapons part of it be mothballed and use it as the core for a new station? Or would they have just ignored it completely and focused on the original Mir like they did in our timeline. And how would it have affected ISS plans? A lot of neat things to think about

There's PR aspect to show that ROSCOSMOS still wants to respect some treaties and to show they're professional.

Yes, but even without so, Russia would be completely stupid to give up partnership with US. Russia occupies a special place for US diplomacy. Even if their geopolitics are deteriorated, they're still respected enough. If Russia gives that up, they're in for a loss.

Unless some incredibly valuable resource is discovered on Mars, the number of Starships needed for crew return trips will be dwarfed by the number sending supplies to Mars. Sending along enough fuel for empty Starships to return to Earth doesn't seem like it would be worth the cost. As a result, there will be plenty of extra Starships on Mars. How difficult would it be to retrofit them, especially the fuel sections, to be habitats? Is there a good way to lay them down without damage?

It is correct, good memes don't have to be spammed with samefagging in order to propagate them, they have to do it because most of /sfg/ is disinterested in them. Failing to deal with anime schizo's faggotry has been disastrous for /sfg/, we are bleeding users left and right. Even without infighting the threads get spammed with the same tired images WE've seen countless times so it almost always degrades into long periods of low effort shitposting.

2019 and 2020 /sfg/ was so much better even during slow periods as the image limit prevented a lot of shitposting. Why would anyone spend their time expertly crafting a post just so that it's lost in a sea of anthropomorphized rocket girls and man-children pretending they are little girls?

>“One possible option that has been identified for launching Starship is from a planned new facility within the physical boundaries around pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, where Dragons are launched from,” West said. “There are obvious safety concerns about launching the large, and as yet unproven, Starship in such close proximity, reportedly only 300 yards or so, from another pad, let alone the path so vitally necessary for the commercial crew program.”

>Is this the same "independent" safety panel that recommended that different parts of the Artemis program, under separate operational directors, be placed under a single mission director and handed to a single prime contractor? Coincidentally, that's an oh-so-traditional arrangement that would all but preclude any more competitive bids or commercial partners.

Some Indonesians see it as a way forward economically and a way politically to become a regional power play and throw their weight around more against Australia.

That's in South Africa so not really that close to the equator, but yes South Africa could host a launch site. I meant equatorial African countries

For Mars landing they have to figure out: propellant transfer, zero boil-off system and heat&power management. By 2026, they should have the first two figured out. The difference with a third one is obviously time, since trip to Mars is six months long and a vehicle going there will require retractable solar panels.

Military reasons. China's economic lifeline goes through Indonesia, so having Starship e2e in the right spot would allow fast resupply of deployed forces in case the US decides to blockade the Straits of Malacca.

It could also be about Starlink instead of Starship. Most of Indonesia by area is absolutely garbage territory for landline ISPs, and cell phones still need backhaul at some point. Starlink or another LEO constellation could digitize the whole country.
