  1. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Yes, he does. He has 19 billion in SpaceX, and 20 billion in personal money. So? He's a billionaire, he can do that if he wants.
  2. @Johnster_Space, there is a secret audio message that plays at 50,000 petameters.
  3. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    Spacex isn't NASA, and NASA hasn't tried to land more on Mars. Requiring millions in refurbishing. Reusing the crew capsule and sometimes SRBs is not comparable with landing the first stage and engines upright.

  5. SpaceX Discussion Thread

    As I seem to have to say every 5 pages, the FH was not delayed. It was replaced by the F9 until reusability had been acheived. The original FH design was not reusable. True. There is no way it would be delayed 11 years. Of course, SLS is 13 years behind shcedule...

    He is currently building them. He plans to launch them by the end of next year. This is not another FH. Agreed. He has a facility large enoguh to build it in, has tested the fuel tank, and has done super sonic retropropulsion. Even if the life support is less than that on the ISS, it has such a high capacity it can carry extra. Unless he decides to go to the moon instead or something, I'm 100% sure we'll be on Mars before 2030.

  8. Since it was clogging up the spacex discussion, you can talk about starlink here!
  9. Bad science in fiction Hall of Shame

    Were you expecting otherwise? In Star Wars, battle could have gone so much better if the x-wings turned off their engines, flipped around, and flew backwards. Or they should have rear mounted weapons.
  10. Ditch The Royalty Free Music

    @SQUAD can make their own recording: they don't need a band or anything, they could do an electronic version to give it a ksp twist.
  11. You don't have to do that if you have centifuges in space. Plenty of raw materials form phobos to build a station.
  12. Have some centrifuge cities. You can have tilted rings that spin to combine local and centrifugal gravity. They would be much more costly than normal stationary habitats, but they might be nessasary for pregnancy and infants.
