  1. Aye, but we're kind of stuck with the humans and their constructs. So that may as well be a law on par with that of physics.
  2. Not entirely true, there is also the political dimension of any project, but that can be dealt with by bringing to bear a sufficient amount of shame and bullying.
  3. Blue Origin would first have to build engines
  4. Starship isn't beholden to NASA's design tomfoolery
  5. This is the one that always sticks with me
  6. If it doesn't register on the Richter scale, it's not a rocket.
  7. Send multiple vehicles per transfer window, each trying a slightly different EDL pattern. We don't have time for your tomfoolery.
  8. Ship is inherently vault. Build city on top of ship. Evacuate to ship. Launch city/ship.
  9. As I said here: Mars is where you want to build you fleet, for the aforementioned reasons.
  10. I, for one, am an avowed proponent of stripmining Mars. It is the goldilocks zone factory planet. It has a thin atmo for easy ascent, but enough for aerobraking. It has low gravity for easy escape, but enough for conventional ore separation and smelting processes. It's in a relatively low energy cost orbital location, not too far in, not too far out. Muh microbes, muh terraforming... No, wh40k is my instruction manual, and anyone who complains is getting turned into a servitor.
  11. You would be incorrect And here we get to saying the quiet part out loud. The point of all this is to filibuster with demands of compliance to unattainable standards.
  12. No, that's literally what actually matters, the rest is the position of the deck chairs on the Titanic.
