  • Hey Tim, Do you think you could revisit the issue of Abort Systems with the recent failure of SN8 on landing? An abort system would have likely saved the lives of the hypothetical crew aboard SN8. And we can ask "How many Falcon-9 landings would have been 'Survivable' by human crew? Until now, we've only had vertical liftoff to worry about but now with landings being far more dangerous than liftoff, couldn't you revisit the concept in a new video? Perhaps even examine the concept of jettisoning the crew capsule as standard practice after re-entry and parachuting the crew safely some distance from the landing stage. Your previous video about abort systems doesn't take into account the danger of vertical landing which is a very new concept and has no statistical data to point to. Strangely, it's difficult to find statistics online for Falcon-9 landing crashes vs. success.. Also, just for extra thought for another video, consider every event that has ever caused a launch abort or delay while on the launchpad - and consider how many of them could be corrected when launching from the moon and how many would leave a stranded crew on the Lunar surface.

    • Same thing with the launch, makes the system much more reliable through many launches If we're so conservative like that, I'm shocked as to why there's no abort system for reentry. I mean, it's just as dangerous right?

  • More ceramic chips blown away... :-\ Edit: It seems to be very problematic if they have to fix the concrete pad every time,..., maybe the static fires are just to test the issue. Imagine the damage with full force 3 engines breathing fire. Imagine if the rocket is supposed to land on that same spot after the 15 hop 😲

  • Hi, Tim. I have not heard of any, but wouldn't it be prudent to run such a monster though a windtunnel (or a vertical 'wind-trampoline') before sending it to a freefall from 15km? I have many times wondered about the untried 'flaps' (or elonerons, as you call them... :-D ) and their sturdiness and aerodynamic behaviour - a windtunnel would give an idea about their behaviour in supersonic/transsonic/subsonic environments. But I confess that I have never seen a single youtube video, or technical paper on windtunnel/windtrampoline testing of this new spacecraft... Do you have knowledge of any such tests? Thx

    Siggi MatosSiggi MatosMaand geleden
    • Wind tunnel testing is one reason SpaceX changed from 3 ailerons to 2 top & 2 bottom. Most of that testing involves scale models, because there are very few wind tunnels that can accommodate something this large.

  • Current design Starship can only get to orbit. That's it. It cannot fly to Mars and even to Moon. For Mars starship doesn't have Full G design for astronauts to stay healthy. For Moon it doesn't have mid size installed engines to land on Moon. So far Starship doesn't solve the landing leg design for landing on unprepared surfaces of Moon or Mars. The name "Starship" its not implemented into the current design at all. They should name it Orbiter or something like that. That's it. For the Mars Elon need to build different type of Rocket.( rotating Von Braun like for Full G ) Current design Starship will never fly to Mars with people on board. That's the logic.

    • @Andy Levy It's more like a "term of endeerment" in the space industry fanbase that made it popular. It was aledgedly used in the military way before, some claim the use of "rapid unintentional disassembly" for an exploding misused gun. And for me Kerbal Space Programm carried it out to pop culture. Another claim is, it was used for an exploding Saturn V Stage on a teststand in the 60s.

  • You were not alone in thinking this iteration of starship was about to become a giant, pyrotechnically impressive disappointment. Kind of like a reverse analogy for a sweet and sour sauce of emotions because the surge of disappointment and frustration was negated by intense relief occurring only a little bit slower but being much more welcome. A lack of any countdown or timeline across the bottom of the screen left us with no warning and I think anticipation for a worst case scenario is semi-instinctive when something like that catches us unawares. This is probably because pessimism is rarely disappointing and we all like to be not only right but to back a winning team. Consequently we tend to adopt a progressively stronger if ultimately only mildly fatalistic attitude after a string of tests have been less than successful according to our expectations. But as you said Elon Musk and his team are daring to work outside established parameters and tests in that realm are not consistently failures because ways to progress are so often gained from them. When ultimately rewarded by progress setbacks and frustrations are merely expensive ways of learning how not to do something and the alternative to daring to try is excessive conservatism. The consequences of that are exemplified by how absurd levels of obstructive 'can't do' attitudes seriously hindered men of genius in Britain from a time prior to WWII virtually until now, particularly at bureaucratic levels. Sir Frank Whittle, R. J. Mitchell, Barnes Wallis and Sir Stanley Hooker are but a few examples of men who forged ahead against conservative obstructionism and essentially saved Britain from itself by doing so. But they too paid a high price for a relatively small measure of gratitude or recognition. I recently watched a documentary on NLworld about development for the Lightning which was the first English supersonic fighter. It illustrated how, despite the harsh lessons of WWII, restraint exerted by conservative thinking kept English research and development for supersonic aircraft lagging behind the United States and Russia by at least a decade. How fortunate that despite it we still have visionaries like Elon Musk who are prepared to stake everything on defying influences still steadily creating an increasingly regimented and over regulated world despite the disadvantages.

I just wanted to thank for clearing up some confusion it was something that bothered me because i didnt want to see one of my favorite rockets stop flying so soon especially with the commercial crew flights being so recent. I know I probably sound dumb but I'm just a kid who has a big dream to look to. I watch your videos all the time because it just inspires me to look to my future. Thank you Wow this turned out to be... Emotional...

    Bryson StephensBryson Stephens2 maanden geleden
    • I mean, it is just that once you have a fully reusable system, you won't win a lot by using a partially reusable system. There will be a period where both interlap as new starships get made and more and more get used, but eventually starship will have to step into both falcon 9 and falcon heavy's job. After all, starship is suposed to be a jab at creating an universal space transportation design, something that "kind of works" no matter what task you ask of it.

    • Isn’t it because when they separate there is still a little bit of atmosphere and rocket engines are loud so you can still hear them. Also if there would be no atmosphere how do you explain the sound traveling trough a vacuum, because when the engine fires it’s already away from the first stage.
