    "SpaceX is returning human spaceflight capabilities to the United States with one of the safest, most advanced systems ever built."
    Yes. It's embarrassing that we had no replacement for the Space Shuttle and had to get rides from the Russians like hobo astronauts.

    Advancement toward returning to Manned Spaceflight I see. Hope stuff actually starts happening before I get old. C'mon Elon. Focus on this, not the brain-computer stuff.

    Its remarkably obvious that we need to start pushing all governments to invest money in space exploration, too much is being spent on fighting each other over silly ancient arguments. --

    I realize what I said isn't easy and has been said before many times, but hey if everyone says it maybe it will stick, like that religion shite did all them years ago.

    Safest ? I doubt it . what if parachute compartment door is damaged and cant open ? or some debris coming from nowhere hit the parachute the instant it starts to deploy ? I suggest you had retro thrusters capability in case of parachute failure and air bags . Sorry , for me your systems is not the safest , because it rely on parachutes only

    i wonder if we could send 10 or 20 loads of stuff we'd need for mars into orbit around earth then send up the main ship join them all up and tow them like a train of truck and trailer,

      Fred Cink 22 days ago +1

      Assembly in Earth orbit is the perfect first step... but Google "Earth-Moon L2." Transferring all craft, cargo, fuel and crew to THAT point before a trans Mars burn is the key to reducing costs/time/fuel/hazards on a manned Mars mission. Once at EML2 everything is already moving at very nearly Earth escape velocity. A short burn from that point lets you get a gravity assist from the moon, then another gravity assist from the Earth. Just after the main burn at perigee, the booster (google Advanced Cryogenic Evolved Stage) is separated, does a short burn and returns to EML2 to be refueled and used again... just like Musk recovering and reusing the Falcon 9 boosters.

    2:11 love the shadows going 2 different directions. Reminds of the Apollo missions! Faking space for half a century! 2:12 is even funnier! How do you explain away the changing ground appearances between 2:12 and 2:13? ROFLAO

      What shadows going different directions? If you look in the bottom left you'll see they're different tests. They land in different spots.

    i mean mechanically the system just limits itself i don't know what computers can do.

  • Project Constantine
    Project Constantine 25 days ago

    very often the turbo will run the computer silent. but, the fuels still start to deposit bubbles and boils. you're pretty much turning it into a conventional engine. the fuel fumes are obviously white in medium pressure.

  • Project Constantine
    Project Constantine 25 days ago

    from the starhoper tests. it's like a ripline between to much pressure and explosion to not enough pressure and explosion. similar to a stat line. there is a certain limit until the fuel generates static or plain natural gas. you can also run it through a fuse ticker that beats the fuel out in portions sometimes until cooling line.

      NASA has for decades had visions on how to keep as many bureaucrats in jobs as possible. And those visions revolve around never ever actually accomplishing anything but constantly presenting grand plans for future missions they'll be able to complete if only they get more bureaucrats and congressional funding authorised for the next 20 years (which they know full well won't ever be in place for those 20 years because the next government is going to change the priorities).
