  1. I saw flat Earthers 'researching' flat Earth and their experiments disproved their own beliefs so they just ignored the results. If that's not the finest example of closed minds I dont know what is. I dont want to derail the thread so I'll say no more on the subject here.
  2. Starship will replace both the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy. The Falcon Heavy has flown 3 times and may never fly again. A Falcon 9 launch puts around the same carbon into the atmosphere as a long haul flight. Starship will challenge the aviation industry with Earth to Earth flights in unbelievable times, for around $2000 a seat https://youtu.be/zqE-ultsWt0 In total, nearly 12,000 Starlink satellites are planned to be deployed, with a possible later extension to 42,000. Starship will deploy 400 per launch. Elon Musk's goal for SpaceX is to develop a carbon neutral rocket to reduce emissions... https://www.tesmanian.com/blogs/tesmanian-blog/elon-musks-goal-for-spacex
  3. The new SpaceX Raptor engines burn Methane. Other than stuff intended to stay in orbit SpaceX stuff comes back for reuse or burns up on reentry. Space tourism for the rich began in 2001, Musks plan is very different.
  4. Update... Since June 2010, rockets from the SpaceX Falcon 9 family have been launched 105 times. Todays launch went swimmingly
  5. You missed something, SpaceX only gave it a 30% chance of total success, it was a prototype of which they have many at various stages of construction. SN8 achieved far more than expected, thats a success
  6. You must mean weeks not years lol. The next SN prototype will ready for launch in no time (despite damage from tipping over in the highbay) , and the one after and so on. SpaceX only gave SN8 a 30% chance of a full success. SpaceX have only taken money from 1 person and he is paying in installments as each goal is achieved
  7. What differences in the design would you expect and why?
  8. Since June 2010, rockets from the SpaceX Falcon 9 family have been launched 104 times, with 102 full mission successes, one partial failure and one total loss of spacecraft, that's a 98.08% success rate. The recent SN8 (Starship prototype) test went very well to those of us who understand prototype testing.
