    The SpaceX thread

    Today at 9:56 a.m. EST, 14:56 UTC, SpaceX launched 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. Falcon 9’s first stage supported the Iridium-7, SAOCOM-1A, and Nusantara Satu missions, and the fairing was previously flown on Falcon Heavy’s Arabsat-6A mission earlier this year. Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

    How do you get hours of unbroken live weightless footage from a vomit comet? Starship and super-heavy don't burn fossil either. Build your 3 mini-prototypes and show the world, or build one for 3 grand, that's not a lot of money to raise by yourself.

    NASA humiliation: SpaceX’s huge rocket take off will cost just 1 percent of rivals' launch Elon Musk has described expendable launch vehicles akin to throwing away passenger aircraft when they complete a flight. https://techcrunch.com/2019/11/06/elon-musk-says-spacexs-starship-could-fly-for-as-little-as-2-million-per-launch/

    SpaceX achieves a key milestone in safety testing of Crew Dragon spacecraft SpaceX conducted the 13th successful test in a row of their Mark 3 parachute system that will be used with Crew Dragon. Normally 4 parachutes are deployed, but SpaceX validated that the system will work with just 3 parachutes, in the unlikely event that one of the chutes fails. This is a big step for SpaceX’s plan to launch NASA astronauts aboard Crew Dragon. Last month, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine visited SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, where he and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk held a press conference to discuss their progress on the commercial crew program. At that event, Musk said that he felt SpaceX was aiming to do “at least” 10 successful tests of its revised ‘Mark 3’ parachute system in a row before any astronauts fly with the system in use.

    SpaceX is sure they’ll be able to land starship on the Moon in 2022... “Elon puts out these incredibly audacious goals and people say ‘You’re not going to do it, you’ll never get to orbit, you’ll never get a real rocket to orbit, […] you’ll never get Heavy to orbit, you’ll never get Dragon to the station, you’ll never get Dragon back, and you’ll never land a rocket,’. So, frankly, I love when people say we can’t do it, because it motivates my fantastic 6,500 employees to go do that thing.” https://www.universetoday.com/143862/spacex-is-sure-theyll-be-able-to-land-starship-on-the-moon-in-2022/

    So that's a no to crying poverty when your loaded (compared to most people) to try and pressure people into giving you money? How about using emotional blackmail by threatening to stop doing something (you claim benefits the recipients) unless your given cash, because you claim your skint and cant carry on.
  7. Also, the moon landing did indeed occur. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/23/us/edward-snowden-joe-rogan-conspiracies-trnd/index.html

    You agreed with Lui who said it will never happen, thats your stance and only time will tell. Apart from that, I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

    The big reveal is almost here. On Saturday, Elon Musk plans on revealing up-to-date design details of SpaceX's Starship and Super Heavy — the 100-passenger spaceship and the huge rocket the company is developing to send people to the moon, Mars and beyond. The almost finished, half-size Starship prototype, imagine the full-size ship sat atop of an equally sized booster. The first operational Starship-Super Heavy flight could occur as early as 2021, Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has already booked a round-the-moon Starship mission, with a departure date scheduled for 2023.
