  1. Is the stuff the Phoenix lander uncovered actually waterice? Could it be something else?

    Its happending! Woop woop! Didn't the X-33 also switch from CFC to a metal which would work fine, but got cancelled because a they specifically wanted a CFC fuel tank? Luckily starship doesn't have any limits.

    Science or Cool

    One important thing to note is that something doesn't have to be an amazing technological feat in order to be cool to the mainstream public. Remember, not everyone is as excited about the unmanned exploration of space as we do, and instead only focus on the crazy headlines. We can easily see this with the launch of the Tesla Roadster, everyone was going crazy about that cheap publicity stunt*, while the recent launch of China's lander which will be the first to land on the far side of the Moon, gets little media attention, even though its a bazillion times more difficult than launching a car in space. *Not saying Falcon Heavy, the rocket itself isn't a big feat, but rather launching the Tesla Roadster. We could have launched a car into space before we even got into orbit. With this, im not saying that we should launch or old junk into space rather than actual science mission, if i had to choose between an unmanned lander mission to Jupiters Moons and a non-functioning piece of junk in space, i'd choose for a Jupiter mission.
  4. Tuned into the NASA TV livestream to watch the OSIRIS-REx capture, but was just in time to see the Soyuz MS-11 capture, what a time to be alive.

    Bad science in fiction Hall of Shame

    Crashing a Shuttle on the Moon on its vital heatshield is a great idea!
  6. No. Apparently antibiotics are a better choice. https://www.quora.com/Is-it-true-that-astronauts-have-to-have-their-appendix-removed-before-going-into-space Yes! https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn10169-doctors-remove-tumour-in-first-zero-g-surgery/ Can you use Oxygen as reaction mass for a nuclear thermal rocket? If so, what would the Isp be?

    Project Eagle - 3D interactive Mars base

    Interesting. Visuals reminds me of the renders of Starship (BFR) on Mars. I might try this.

    Mars 2020 Landing Site Selection

    Thats like 256 science points right there. Maybe they can unlock a NERV with that. They should be called geomes, there isn't much 'bio' on Mars, neither is there any on planets in KSP other than Kerbin.

    ISS Discussion Thread

    Speaking of computers, they got 80 laptops, wich use different operating systems. They have Windows 7, And this: im not that big of a computer whiz so i don't know what OS it is. But it doesn't look like Windows to me. Wouldn't be surprised if some of the older gizmos still use XP or 95. Updating it could probably cause some expensive problems.

    Solid State Airplane

    Ok cool. Can we get flying cars now or do we have to wait another 70 years?

    Woop woop! They are going somewhere!
  13. Elon Musk might be a little not-so-serious but don't forget Shotwell who i think (unlike Musk) is sane person.

    The only things that aren't going to change in the BFR design are the tooling and the fuel.
