    • First system capable of manufacturing Starship in strong titanium alloys. Superior mass and force ratio. Symmetrical double joints with controlled asymmetry of paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials in an inert atmosphere. Starship can be manufactured 60 tons less and by automation ... Integral double joints with controlled asymmetry in titanium alloys ... Robotic welding by stimulated emission of light for reactive materials in a 100% inert atmosphere at 360º. We can now manufacture in titanium and robotically for the first time in history. Now we can do it very well ... !!! ...

  • Very well-made video which is very informative as well. Two comments though: One) It is irritating that a commercial is "woven" into the video creating the illusion (initially) that it is still part of the video and thus luring people into viewing more of it than desired and Two) although the commentator is obviously an Anglosaxon speaker, his diction needs a bit looking at especially where the "A" vowel pronounciation is concerned (e.g. the speaker repeatedly says "mErs" instead of "mArs")... is that a personal affectation or such? If a video is said to be informative and educational, the correct pronounciation of words matters as well I believe Overall though, excellent video :)

  • 09:30 I don't get it. Why would you want to replace damaged tiles once you are on Mars? You can relaunch and transfer to Earth Orbit without needing new heat-tiles. In Earth orbit they can transfer to another vehicle for landing (better suited for earth atmosphere and gravity) ...

    • @Tony M Of course I understand the ramifications of global warming, but when it's cheaper for companies to pollute, then they'll do it unless there are financial repercussions. My apathy towards what companies choose to do has nothing to do with my understanding of the climate and the effect we are having on it. Besides, emissions from rockets launches are probably the last thing environmentalists should worry about.

    • @EimajOzear I just bought an electric car that can barely fit 5 comfortably. Why? Because I don’t think their required goal of eliminating all gas cars is achievable in 8 years. When they realize their plan is moving too slow they will then take more drastic measures. Are you not seeing the action to uniformly reverse the Global Catastrophe right before your eyes? If you don’t, just take a long ride without any internet devices and pay close attention to the changes in infrastructure going on, regardless of what Country you reside in.

    • By mass, methane combustion exhaust is around 55% CO2, so by burning through ~4,000t of propellant, that's ~2,200t of CO2 released per launch. As for net-zero rocket propulsion, any hydrogen-oxygen launch vehicle has the potential to be carbon neutral if the hydrogen and oxygen are sourced from the electrolysis of water powered by renewable energy. However, until the price of green hydrogen is competitive with fossil-fuel derived hydrogen, this won't happen anytime time soon.

  • Closest distance from earth to mars is 54.6 million km. Speed achieved by the rocket on the Apollo 10 mission was close to 40k km. Assuming Tesla's rocket doesn't follow the orbit on its way to mars that would mean they would alight at mars within 54 days, I know it's not that simple but since space is a vacuum they could propel the vehicles to outrageous speeds and maybe even arrive sooner

  • It's strange that at this level you don't mention titanium alloys. The best strength-to-weight ratio for metal alloys is titanium. The problem is that this reactive material for the American aerospace industry was impossible to join by automation due to its chemical reaction with air when welded. Now it has been discovered how to join these all-important alloys using robotics, so I'm telling you that Starship can be made with these beneficial 60-ton lighter titanium alloys. Modular manufacturing with this discovery, better system performance ... Perfect double gaskets with controlled asymmetry for paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials in inert atmosphere. Hypersonic passenger flights and modular robotic manufacturing of monohulls with this system are possible today. Intercontinental flights have been reduced to less than half because the heights and speeds of flight of a monocoque made of titanium by automation are infinitely higher than those of current aircraft built with aluminum foil on frames of the same material. It is excellent news, friends from the USA, ... now we can do it very well ... !!! ...

      Aaron WashburnAaron Washburn4 maanden geleden
    • @Aaron Washburn Hello friend, laser welding was not possible before automatically because I neglected the back of the weld ... My discovery joins with two symmetrical systems on each side and a reactive titanium from both sides at the same time preventing the chemical reactions of the material. .. Inert atmosphere front and back simultaneously ... Gas and energy controlled asymmetry welding. The laser system joins in one place and leaves the back free. Titanium cannot be joined in this way because gas enters and the material reacts on the opposite side

    • @Eduardo Amaro I think there may be a small language barrier here...I'm not sure if "Do you think I write about Starship and about the future trip to Mars ... Reading ability. " is supposed to be a punchy rhetorical question or if something is getting lost in translation.

      Aaron WashburnAaron Washburn4 maanden geleden
    • @Eduardo Amaro titanium can react with liquid oxygen, you clearly didn't read the report. I don't know why you think titanium can't react just because the oxygen is "cold". I also don't know why you keep pitching this welding fixture like a door to door vacuum salesman, laser and robotic welding systems have existed for decades. Lincoln Electric has a hybrid laser CNC robotic welding system which can do automated laser keyhole or weld cladding. You may have a unique fixture, but that doesn't mean laser welding of titanium wasn't possible before, and weldable or not it has nothing to do with the issue I brought that you don't appear to want to spend any time looking into. This report is literally called "A study of the titanium-liquid oxygen explosive reaction": www.uhms.org/images/MEDFAQs/Titanium-GO2_Summary.pdf Here is another on rocket fuel storage materials which makes specific reference to instances of titanium reacting violently with liquid oxygen: apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/613553.pdf Since I assume you're too lazy to read these also I'll let you know that the issue isn't that titanium suddenly bursts into flames on contact with LOX, it's that it has been found to be unstable against impact and puncture versus other materials, like stainless steel, which when tested didn't react even when the container was fully pierced. It's a safety of flight issue, I'm not sure how much simpler I can say it.

Elon musk himself said that it's a 1/3 chance that everything actually works, in a humorous tone As well as if it did come back in one piece it would just become a huge paper weight as the next one sn9 was already in the hanger waiting to go test. The Starship test launch was one of the most technically advanced things to ever happen in 10 minutes in the past decade if not ever It was a huge success

  • I'm concerned about the number of communication satellites Elon has already launched, with the goal of having a network of a staggering 12,000 communications satellites in orbit for better cell phone service. This will drastically increase the amount of debris that is already in orbit around our planet. I do not hear enough people seriously talking about the long-term ramifications of this problem. One small nut or bolt is enough to cause life-threatening damage to the ISS at the speeds they orbit and there have already been close calls. NASA tries to track the larger objects, such as satellites, but at some point the amount of traffic will become a bottleneck if people are not looking far enough ahead.

    • At the speed of a bullet out of a gun also.

      Think CivilThink Civil4 maanden geleden
    • @Ryland Duesburry The astronauts themselves have said that if those hits had occurred on the wrong areas, the effects of a strike by a nut or bolt could be life threatening. A nut or bolt is just the start. Man has foolishly destroyed satellites in orbit and set off nuclear blasts. Not to mention old satellites and larger pieces.

      Think CivilThink Civil4 maanden geleden
    • No just no. For starters a single nut or bolt is not life threatening to the space station. Micro asteroids have hit the space station before and do you want to know the revolutionary solution to the problem, they put their finger over the hole and then just plugged. Where as the whole satellite thing, you know how much bloody space there is in orbit around earth, plus the space station orbits at much higher altitude then the starling satilites do, as well as they will deorbit them selves pretty quickly (relatively) if you want to talk about a cluttered orbit geo stationary (where the satilite orbits at the same speed earth spins so they are always above that one spot) is the problem, there is only so much room above the places you want and those never de orbit so satilites from 30 years ago will never go away

  • I have looked at a lot of videos about colonizing the moon & Mars. And I haven't found any with my same ideas. I think we should set up a moon colony on earth. We should have inflatable domes, which we cover with 3D printers with simulated moon mortar. The domes should be connected to each other by inflatable tunnels covered with simulated moon mortar. There should be living quarters, hydroponic green houses, gardens with garden soil for recreational gardening, a 5 acre pasture with one inch of garden soil and one inch of grass turf, a park with artificial turf and with small sections of real grass turf, and maybe even a very small zoo. All the domes will have plastic floors so no water is lost. Condensation forming on the ceilings will be drained into the water supply. All the domes will be blown up with compressed air from earth and will have a refresh system, which will refresh the air and maintain the air pressure. Humidity, Temperature will be maintained by humidifiers, heaters, fans and coolers. Light will be provided by multi-color LEDs, mostly white. Power will be supplied at first by solar power, and later by nuclear or fusion power. All water will be re-cycled, almost zero loss of water. There will be a bull, a cow, two sheep, and two goats, two chickens, two turkeys, two fish, and two rabbits. There will also be pets, two dogs, two cats, two bunnies, etc. (and maybe a small zoo) All of this will be set up by astronauts and robots before the colonist arrive. The first colonist will be 5 fathers and 5 mothers, and 90 babies. The parents will be good parents, gardeners, farmers, zoo keepers, teachers, etc.. During the first two years an exact duplicate facility will be built on the moon. When the babies are two years old, they will move to the moon and live on the moon. Or if it is proven that they will be too young to travel to the moon than the facility on earth will be added to, to accommodate 10 more parents and 90 more babies. The two year olds would move into the new addition. Every two years the facility will be either added to, or 100 people will move to the moon. This plan will allow the kids to grow up in the isolation of the colony, and will make it easier for them to live in the isolation of the colony on the moon. And will allow them to grow up on the moon and be better able to adjust to the lower gravity on the moon, although some artificial gravity maybe eventually provided. This artificial gravity will especially be good for the parents. The kids will have everything in the facility to keep them occupied and entertained. Also they could have some books, movies, games, etc., especially adapted for them, being careful not to give them anything that would make them feel isolated. After 20 years there could be 2000 people living on the moon, most of whom grew up on the moon. This program could be speeded up so in 20 years there could be 4000, 6000, or 8000 people living on the moon. This program could be simultaneously done to colonize Mars so we could have 2000 people on the Moon and Mars at the same time. For the moon we could send supplies every month, but for Mars we could only send supplies every 26 months. So I suggest we send 10, 20, or 30 rockets to Mars every 26 months all at the same time. We could have several refueling stations along the way to mars and orbiting mars so rockets could refuel along the way to mars and right before landing on mars so the empty rocket would have enough fuel to take off again, refuel in space and return to Earth. Eventually the colonist could grow trees, bamboo, and other plants for raw materials that could be used for making things. Eventually the moon and Mars could export minerals or small expensive items that were assembled on the moon or Mars, like jewelry, iphones, iwatches, etc. Or grown on the moon like caviar, marijuana, etc. What do you think ? :-)

  • Im looking at all these rockets and after some time I can only think about how they all completely look like dicks. Especially spaceX's falcon -it even has balls. Penises, penis shaped sperm cells, impregnating planets with humans.

  • On one hand, the falcon heavy has made extreme leaps in rocket engineering and commercial space travel. On the other hand, starship was blown over by strong winds and has blown up a bunch.
