    That ship is NOT big enough for 100 people to live in for six to nine months. What the fuck. I'm not just talking about consumables (which you'd need at least three years of for the entire crew in case you need to abort. Yes Elon, you do need to think about that. Apollo 13). Imagine being stuck in an airliner for 200 days, with absolutely no escape. That's what he's talking about here. People need to have room for privacy, to be in solitude and think (and that doesn't just include a tiny little cabin). If they're all gonna be crammed in a spaceship for half an Earth year they'll need to be able to get away from each other to compensate for not being able to leave the ship. And that doesn't account for the problems of a radiation shelter in case of a solar flare, or the ship functioning as a habitat once they reach Mars (ideally it will double as that in case a pre-packaged habitat sent ahead fails).
    Like, what is he THINKING? Read KSR's Red Mars. His crew of a hundred went out in a ship a bit bigger than the USS Enterprise, with the interior space of a large luxury hotel, and they just held it together as a group by the time they landed. If this man actually gets these plans off the ground, don't be surprised by catastrophic failures. The most I'd want to stuff in that ship is ten people tops.

    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.

    Think the whole world should get behind this guy,the earth has a finite amount of resources,makes sense to colonise mars or other worlds,we'll be an extinct race before we get any where near to alpha centauri...although i think he should aim for colonising the moon more,and then constructing launch sites from;the moon being easier and faster to supply,and then launching his big ships from there....Space 1999 style.I donate real money to this guy in exchange for some sort of real estate tokens/land deeds etc.In summary....I'm behind his vision,we should all be,fuck the russians and fuck nasa,theyre over.Their system of capsule is not condusive to keeping astronauts sane,its not much bigger than the capsule for the apollo missions,3 people in that small space for way.

    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.
