What do you think of Starship and SpaceX? Can they land this white tower on the Moon by 2024 ?

>>119898 they want to land on moon south pole and like dig dirt there, because it has water in some concentration. there are also places like holes, craters where sun never shines, there maybe ice there, so the plan is to somehow descent into those really shitty dark holes and get ice out, and then produce fuel and also if you establish a fuel factory on Luna, then you kinda own the place.

I think it is worrisome that billionaires are trying to colonize Mars while our planet looks like it is going to be rekt by climate change, pollution and natural disasters.

re-upping this thread since this thread was created not a single Starship was launched SpaceX have no permission to launch this thing

>>149587 Bump, as of today, Starship 24 is on the launchpad and awaiting for orbital launch attempt with a brand new booster https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxKpAJM-BJw

In real its a military project for orbital weapons platform.

>>149764 >Starship 24 >24 don't you find it funny how they just toss around these gas silos on this sweaty mexican construction site, give them new names , scrap and build again, give them new names and scrap again, give them higher numbers and scrap again, move around for cameras this is the imitation of activity. Like if you are an office worker and when the boss passes by your cubicle, you start shuffling papers and picking up a phone, pretending you are working. Same with SpaceX in this Boca Chika village, they are just imitating activity for 3 to 4 years and you still think this is meaningfull. Tossing papers around, tossing these metall towers around, very busy, much work meanwhile nothing of anounced goals for Starship is achieved. And the whole Artemis joke now hinges on Starship flying someday. China will land humans on the Moon this century earlier than NASA and SpaceX, you'll see.

>>149788 lol. I think it's pretty obvious they were working on fixing the catching on fire on landing issue. It took them longer that it should, but nonetheless, now that you jinxed it again, I think the launch is soon, just so you can look even more ridiculous with your kokokope.

>>149789 > I think the launch is soon name concrete date, big boy, soon is too ambiguous and can't really catch you on that See that black confetti in the right bottom corner? Thats thermal insulation tiles, the thing Musk wants to use instead of proper heat shield. https://youtu.be/1s_yO53mbJU?t=700 they drop like rotten leaves from the tree the moment his Fakeship trembles a little, this has fallen from that Starship 24. How do they glue this shit? The thing didn't even hit MaxQ, not even felt the roar of 20 or so raptor 2s light up underbelly of the Superheavy booster, but they still fall down easily from the mere vibration of some mexican worker tripping over his boots near that thing and they want us to believe these cheap tiles with withstand the launch, stage sep, orbital operation and docking, and then survive the whole re-entry process? Lool, get out of here.

i suppose the bane of Musk is the fact that metall can expand and contract depending on the temperature. So even though this thing is metall, its not rigid. When it heats in the sun its one size, when it is pumped with liquid propeland its very cold and there is liquid from the atmosphere condensing on it everywhere. it again changes size in the cold and those attachment for thermal tiles cannot account for changes. but they have to cover it ALL with thermal protection tiles, every inch of it to become black under different and complicated angles and those fucking angles change every time dumb retard redesignes it, so people have to invent new ways of adapting the tile attachment system to new angles and new thermal conditions totall mess. The thing is these panes when they attach - they have space in between them and behind them, its not airtight. So the air can go behind them. So is atmospheric liquids, elements how they say. Remind you again - contract and expand, thermall stress, but that thing haven't even expirienced the launch stress, when thing is launching, its vibrating like crazy, there are soundwaves capable of destroying many fragile things and then it will have to go into space and space is another can of worms. In the sun and vacuum all those tiles will have to expirience new conditions and the condensation from the atmosphere could stuck underneath those tiles and freeze in space and then expand as gas when its in the Sun, and freeze again when on the dark side and then heat and shake when engines fire and in re-entry haven't you seen how much ice is getting on the second stage around the engine? when you leave the atmosphere, you not just go into space all dry and happy. Same as if you leave the sea and get out of the water - you are wet, the water from the sea is still on you, and dropping. But when you leave the atmosphere you also move between two mediums, you are also "wet" you carry with you a lot of gas from our atmosphere condensed everywhere and then frozen in chunks, its a mess how much that wet and solid shit can accumulate on your ship after launch and where it can stuck shit is doomed retard is in charge but the heard is dumb and believes that the hearder is genious

SpaceX got some permission but another month without orbital flight of Starship almost gone this is now SpaceX bashing thread basics in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoCxDGbP00Q
