Elon Musk has a GREAT idea.... why not use a space craft designed for going to mars for transporting people around Earth! Actually, its a profoundly stupid idea on almost every level. Firstly even the best rockets have a lousy track record compared to planes. If only one rocket in a hundred blows up its considered VERY good. Meanwhile if one plane in a million crashes, its considered a poor safety record. Secondly rockets are mind blowingly expensive. You can get an estimate of a ticket on a rocket like this as somewhere between 100 000- 500 000 USD. Its difficult to see that ever being competitive with plane flight which will cost ~1000 USD. Elon Musk however doesnt seem to have a problem saying it will only cost about the same as a plane ticket. -support independent, scientifically literate media like this: https://www.patreon.com/Thunderf00t

I’m going to give a basic overview of Blue Origin and let you know what we can expect from them in the near future and a compare them to SpaceX along the way. Bezos founded Blue Origin in 2000, two years before Elon Musk founded SpaceX. Bezos was always fascinated with space as a kid; whereas Musk admits that he was not a space junkie as a kid and he started SpaceX with the firm believe that humanity should be a multi planet species. The early years of Blue Origins was slow and methodical, they had the luxury of time, and that is reflected in their Moto is “Step and Step, ferociously.” Bezos had the money to fund Blue Origin at exactly the right rate that he felt necessary. He kept expenses low. On the other hand, SpaceX had a desperate sense of urgency since the beginning. Musk spent most of his money at the time on starting SpaceX and they needed to generate revenue in order to survive. The company was continually at risk of bankruptcy, and employees worked 90 hours per week until they secured the $1.6 billion contract from NASA in 2008. In an article from fastcompany.com, the author Aaron Carr asked SpaceX senior communications manager Phil Larson about working 90 hours a week, Larson said, “Hours and expectations are higher than the industry average, but you can’t make humanity a multiplanetary species on 40 hours a week.” The article is very interesting and goes a lot deeper into the cultural differences between Blue Origin and SpaceX; there is a link to it in description. But in the past four years, Blue Origin has grown at a fast pace. Growing from 250 employees in 2013 to over 1000 employees today, SpaceX currently has around 6000 employees. One of Blue Origin’s vision is to get billions of people to work and live in space and their two main objectives are, 1) To decrease the cost of human spaceflight and 2) to increase the safety of human spaceflight. Similarly, SpaceX vision is to help make humanity become a multi-planetary species. Their main objectives are 1) Reducing space transportation costs and 2) Help build and facilitate a million-person colony on Mars in the next 50-100 years Blue Origin hopes to dramatically lower the cost of spaceflight by achieving reusability with their rockets, like SpaceX does. Blue Origin’s main business focus space tourism. They plan to start sending tourist into space in 2018. They will launch the tourist above the Kármán line, 62 miles above earth. The Karman line is the boundary between Earth's atmosphere and space. From that height, tourist will experience weightlessness, and see the curve of the planet and the darkness of space. SpaceX main business is delivering cargo and astronauts to the international space station, but on the side, they will dabble in space tourism in 2018 or later when they launch two tourists around the moon! Blue Origin will launch the tourist in the New Shepard rocket.

Chad Weber - [email protected] Chloe Cain - Instagram: @chloegwen2001 For the last couple of episodes, we’ve talked about NASA’s plans to explore deep space, with the Space Launch System and the Deep Space Gateway. That’s fine and all, but many of you wanted to know how all this would compare to what SpaceX is planning for the colonization of space. It had been a while since we got an update from Elon Musk, but on Friday we got a big announcement from the SpaceX CEO, and it kind of makes your head spin. At the International Astronautical Congress in Australia - the home of the newly announced Australian Space Agency, congrats Australia, you totally deserved it. What what I saying? Oh right, at the IAC, Elon Musk announced what they’ve been working on since last year’s announcement of the Interplanetary Transport Ship. All of SpaceX’s current rocket fleet: the Falcon 9, the Falcon Heavy, the Dragon spacecraft, it’s all going to be made obsolete by their “all in” investment to build the one rocket that’ll do everything: the BFR.

So, Elon Musk wants us to be a "multiplanetary species". Well, the concept at least kind of works in KSP ;) Didn't nail the reusability part, not enough time to do so.

Buzz Aldrin on Mars, Musk, and SpaceX
Joe Scott • 2 weeks ago
Like the shirt? Get it here: www.answerswithjoe.com/shirts On Friday, Elon Musk spoke to the International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide Australia to update us on his plans for SpaceX. Here's the nuts and bolts of it. Support me on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/answerswithjoe Follow me at all my places! Instagram: https://instagram.com/answerswithjoe Snapchat: https://www.snapchat.com/add/answerswithjoe Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/answerswithjoe Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/answerswithjoe LINKS LINKS LINKS: SpaceX Presentation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v tdUX3ypDVwI TRANSCRIPT: Friday, Elon took the stage at the International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide Australia and around the world, musketeers gathered around their computers to watch their favorite billionaire visionary slash chief executive stammerer talk about his new plans for Mars. But that’s not really what they got. Yes, Elon talked about Mars, but this wasn’t really about Mars so much as it was about the future of SpaceX. And the first hint of the future of SpaceX is the name he used for their rocket. Last year, the spaceship he presented was referred to as the ITS, for Interplanetary Transport System. This was a rocket system specifically designed for voyages to Mars and beyond. This time, the letters ITS were never used. Instead he went with BFR. For Big F*cking Rocket. Musk’s new version of the BFR gets smaller, and far, far more versatile. Satellite deployment, refueling, lunar landing, and shuttling astronauts to the ISS. And as this picture shows, it’s still a pretty big fucking rocket. This is the future of SpaceX. A one-size-fits all workhorse that can perform a wide variety of functions with only slight modifications to the original design. In fact, he said that this configuration would make everything before it obsolete, which makes me wonder what is the future of the Falcon Heavy and the Dragon 2? This workhorse has 31 engines in the first stage as opposed to 42 in the original design. And it’s designed to carry 4400 tons of vehicle mass with 5400 tons of thrust. He showed in a chart just how much more that is than any other rocket, including the Falcon Heavy. By a long shot. So maybe the Heavy will just be kept around for special payloads that require it? I don’t know. But the second stage had a few major changes, including a small delta wing with yaw and pitch controls for better control during re-entry. He described the crewship as a combination of the Falcon 9 second stage and the Dragon capsule, but bigger. The crew cabin is designed to carry up to 100 passengers with 40 capsules that Elon says are built for 2 to 3 people each, though you could get 5 in there if you weren’t claustrophobic. And he says it has as much cabin space as an Airbus 380, which just for reference can carry 853 passengers fully loaded. One thing that was new was he talked about lunar expeditions and possibly setting up a moon base, which is new for SpaceX but also in line with NASA’s plan to return to the moon. This obviously positions SpaceX to get some government contracts for lunar missions, which could be a money maker for the BFR. And back to Mars, he showed a visualization of how the Mars landing would work, using that delta wing shape to slow the craft down in the atmosphere before doing a propulsive landing. Now he did say that the Mars missions would require producing fuel on Mars, which in rocketspeak is In-Situ Resource Utilization. Elon’s new timeline put the first trips to Mars in 2022, these are unmanned missions that will carry solar-powered fuel plants to carry out all the stuff I just talked about, along with cargo and food for future missions. In 2024, he wants to launch 4 ships to Mars, 2 crewed and 2 uncrewed, which are stocked with provisions for a long stay on Mars. And he showed how a base would start with one landing pad, then becoming multiple landing pads, and growing out a city from there. Elon himself called these timelines “aspirational” but did say they are already starting to build the first ship so maybe we’ll see these things sooner than we think. But the big surprise of the night came at the end when Elon channeled his inner Steve Jobs and had one more thing. And suggested that if these rockets could send people to Mars, why not other places on Earth? And unveiled this plan. It would ferry people to a floating launch pad and launch them to the other side of the world at 27,000 miles per hour, where it would propulsively land less than 30 minutes later. Basically make long-distance trips as much of a time cost as commuting in bad traffic.

Rockets do not work in the vacuum of space. Not all scientists are "in on it" and are just doing their tasks that they are paid to do. What do you think about what this man said? Leave a comment!
