    His genius is amazing. He has the ability to think through everything to the smallest detail. This must be so embarrassing for NASA who could not even conceive of the practical aspects that Mr. Musk has done with his team. Government is so wasteful and slow. Musk did all this in one decade. I will enjoy seeing him achieve his goals as others flounder to keep up. If Musk had been running the Shuttle program I don't think we would have lost two crews and two shuttles to mistakes that could have been anticipated.

    He is over-processing the data. I have done this many time because I was trained to use my slides as my notes and if you really know your subject matter and your audience it becomes seamless. Also it helps to be a good speaker, Elon is not a good speaker. He should get other like his older launch commentator to do these presentations. Or one of the younger engineers that we have seen during Falcon launches. Elon should only be involved in the start and final Q&A. Yes he is one of the Smartest humans on earth but not a man who should be doing public high tech speeches/presentation to Non-Tech personnel like Non Tech Press.

    The BFR is amazing but remember it will be a one way trip unless you get a refuel tanker in Mars orbit. Remember it needs the booster to even get into earth orbit and a tanker refuel after that. So how is it getting back to Mars orbit without the booster? I know it could produce the fuel on Mars but if not its staying there and again where is the booster to get back to mars orbit. Also again the refuel tanker in Mars orbit after that. This is definitely a one way trip. Of course the first ship's will be unmanned, I know. To do what, send equipment and supplies and fuel ahead. Maybe. But the original issues remain, no booster or fuel tank in Mars orbit. Of course he did say these people are colonists and not visitors right? Possibly dieing there is an option. Survival will be the first order of business and not returning. How is that possible? This man must be a genius. NASA is not considering this kind if mission, not even close.

    I hear they just started building the first prototype this month. Will be an exiting day when they reveal the first fully constructed prototype. Would be interesting to see how the living quarters look & how the crew would go about their day on the way to the moon or Mars or even in orbit on this thing. They’ll probably have to test out the living conditions for long duration trips with a few people onbord a landed BFR on earth before committing to a long trip with more than 30 people onboard.

    Have simulated stuff like this in Orbiter many times. Concept-wise, it's all pretty cut and dried. But executing it in real life is a tall order. Lots of engineering challenges to get past. It can be done if they don't hemorrhage too much money in development. Here's wishing them the best in the endeavor; lots of us have been waiting decades to see something like this after government space programs dropped the ball following the Apollo landings.

    This is what happens when common sense is applied to complex systems. This is taking the most cost effective technology and applying it functionally and logically to purpose. Imagine what could be done when new advances in science and technology become mainstream. We advance by leaps. Government controlled space exploration can never accomplish this. This is also within the topic of the technological singularity so we must be wary.

    Just an observer: Elon has his reputation on the line, every time he speaks. If he was just starting out right now he probably would not pass the interview. However, people in the business who know him respect him for what he knows, not how he presents it. He has no equal as far as putting 500 million dollars of his own money at stake on an idea that may fail. Risk with his passion to press ahead where no one has ventured before. Showing us all a new way to make things profitable as well as making the technology viable. Showing us that big rockets maybe the answer to getting us off this planet. Big rockets is more cost effective than the small ones, as it relates to the earths gravity. Big rockets can escape gravity without the waste of tossing the stages in the water. Elon is leading the charge to space; got to give him that credit, U.S. government would be wise to support him in his goals with financial support. It would be money well spent!!! Plus if U.S. government would support him, imagine how fast/and how much things would get done. His limitations is the money he does not have.

America should have dozens of people like this. I'll save my rant about cuts in government funding since Regan for another forum. If Elon hadn't been able to pretty much self fund his projects, at least initially, we as a country wouldn't be discussing this project.

    BFR, is that an acronym for Big Fucking Rocket?

  • 316Qasim
    316Qasim 5 aylar önce +1

    The acceleration of BFR will be approximately 2.23m/s^2 at liftoff through the Thrust to Weight Ratio. This is nearly half the acceleration of the Space Shuttle back in the 1981.
    So, if he somehow makes the BFR lighter or using a better propulsion system, the thrust to weight ratio will increase and his craft will accelerate much faster. Using chemical rockets as the only propulsion system is a bit obsolete, even for Elon Musk.
    Just the opinion of a 17 year old student studying rocket science.

    • 316Qasim
      316Qasim 4 aylar önce

      Well, there are many options. NTR sounds great as NASA and other space agencies are currently working on it. The best option (and also the hardest) is using LASER Photonic propulsion. This is done by beaming photons (massless) onto a reflective mirror. Using this technology, a solar sail (the device that ejects LASER beams) can reach up to 10% the speed of light. That's 30,000km/sec! Now, if that speed is our exhaust velocity and if we want to get to LEO ( required velocity = 9km/sec), then the mass of the propellant should be just 0.0003% the mass of the entire spacecraft. { I used the ideal rocket equation to get the calculated values }. Right now, the chemical rockets that we usually use have a propellant fraction of 0.89. (89% mass of the spacecraft = propellant)
      The sad thing is that our current technology is primitive to achieve such kind of missions at this modern day and age.
      But if there's a huge public and economic interest in using solar sails, then this technology might be seen in the coming decades or so.
      Hope that answers your question regarding the best possible solution to maximize thrust to weight ratio and ultimately maximize Velocity.

    so, it has nothing to do with the rest of you and your impatience? i see nothing "wrong" at all. it didn't even cross my mind to consider him somehow mentally incapable of talking to others. all i was thinking was the amount of information and technical jargon he has to avoid in order to simplify it for general consumption, must be immense. we're all scientifically literate enough, to a point, where he can confidently remind us of the depth at which this must be discussed before it's even considered a viable idea or truth.
    i've heard this man speak for years now, and not once has it crossed my mind he is not capable of public speaking. his diction is on point, his phrasing is on point, his patience is on point, there isn't a fucking thing wrong here.
    as for people defending Elon with silly excuses, even the people insulting the man, you should stop talking about him and focus solely on his ideas.
    whoever watches this guy present such ideas only to criticise or defend him, is stupid. you're all focusing on idiotic features of the individual when that has absolutely nothing to do with the ideas he's so keen to share with the world at his own expense. fuck. how would you like it if strangers did that shit to and for you? "oh it's ok, he's a little special, like all great minds." "he's afraid of public speaking." how fucking degrading is it when your ideas are second to your individual features?
    shit. you're all a bunch of idiots. all of you. the BFR is astounding. the cost is astonishing to think of. the plans and research on this project are beyond anything we humans have tried to do in our history, and you're all bitching about his presentation. fucking idiots.
