#SpaceX has started making some progress on the transpirational steel plate system that will be installed under the #Starbase #Starship OLM. In this thread, I will be detailing the latest findings as well as touching on my process for reverse engineering a system like this. (1/n) Image
I completely redid all my models related to this system. The supply pipes and manifolds have been measured and accurately modeled. I was able to gather enough reference photos to get many of the dimensions for the plates and have sized those accordingly. (2/n) Image
A few weeks ago, @RGVaerialphotos captured this photo. At the time, I noticed some of the rectangular plates appeared to have a very slight slant to them. (3/n) Image

For SpaceX and Musk fanboys:

I can engage in decent discours with genuinely interested people, which usually you folks aren't.

But if you come at me like a smartass, I'll serve you in kind.

Also, I don't work for you, and I don't have to prove anything.
Ok. No more discussions with Starship/Musk fanboys or smartasses.

I'll block without warning.

One genius thought we're not planning for rocket engines for the spaceplanes. How the fuck else would we go to "space" dumbass? Read my fucking analysis.

Our analysis (which includes an analysis of #Starship and SpaceX on-orbit refueling shortcomings):

Let’s do a little NASA math.

Take (1) Hasselblad on the moon strapped to the chest of an astroNOT.
Spend under 3hrs walking on the moon.
Take 1409 pictures changing film 20 times.

That’s 1409/3≈470

That’s almost 8 pictures every minute.

Don’t believe me? Follow along. ImageImage
Meet the Hasselblad Data Camera (HDC) with Réseau plate, fitted with a Zeiss Biogon 60mm ƒ/5.6 lens. It was adapted for NASA to take 70 pictures per cartridge of film instead of the usual 12. Imagine how fun it was to change film cartridges in a “spacesuit”. ImageImage
They took 1409 pictures in roughly 3 hours. 1408 usable. Take a look through your photos on your phone.

How many out of 1409 are clear, historical images.

Keep in mind you are looking at the screen while taking those not having it strapped to your chest with no view finder. ImageImage

Enquanto o Twitter surta, squads da @SpaceX de Elon Musk mandaram mais quatro caboclos para a ISS.
Subiram em 02/03/2023 o cosmonauta russo Andrey Fedyaev, o astronauta dos Emirados Árabes Unidos, Sultan Alneyadi e os astronautas da #NASA, Warren "Woody" Hoburg e Stephen Bowen.
O lançamento do foguete Falcon 9 foi belíssimo. O retorno do foguete à Terra, pousando na vertical, um show. Mas nem tudo foram flores: a nave #Endeavour (nome da Dragon na missão #Crew6) sofreu um problema ao desacoplar do estágio superior do foguete e acionou a reduncância.
Aparentemente, para os engenheiros da #SpaceX não haverá problemas no acoplamento à doca da ISS na sexta-feira, 03/03. Ainda assim, é bom ficar de olho. Só nos resta esperar e torcer para dar tudo certo.

We are standing by for a 33-engine static fire of the #SpaceX #Starship. This will be the largest firing of rocket engines at a single time and this test has huge implications for not just SpaceX, but also the #Artemis program. Image
WOW! That looked good. Standing by for an update by SpaceX/@elonmusk on how it went.

This puts a potential March launch actually on the table. Image
@elonmusk That's a good sign. Test was the full, anticipated duration.

#SpaceX has taken steps to prevent 🇺🇦#Ukraine's military from using the company's #Starlink satellite internet service for controlling drones in the region during the country's #war with 🇷🇺#Russia - Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX's president said...…
2/3 Ukraine has made effective use of unmanned aircraft for spotting enemy, targeting fires and dropping bombs.
"There are things that we can do to limit their ability to do that," she said, referring to Starlink's use with drones "There are things that we can do, and have done."
This is fucking ridiculous.
Seems like @elonmusk keeps looking for new ways assisting 🇷🇺#Russia in aggression.
Depriving the Internet for missiles and drones at the front deprives the Internet itself of meaning. Absolutely disgusting!

esplorerà uno degli obiettivi più intriganti nella fascia principale degli asteroidi: un gigantesco asteroide metallico, noto come 16 Psyche, circa tre volte più lontano dal sole rispetto alla Terra.

#NASA #SpaceX #ElonMuskNews…

Questo asteroide misura circa 130 miglia (210 chilometri) di diametro e, a differenza della maggior parte degli altri asteroidi che sono corpi rocciosi o ghiacciati, si pensa che sia composto principalmente da ferro metallico e nichel, simile al nucleo terrestre.

Gli scienziati si chiedono se Psiche possa essere un nucleo esposto di un primo pianeta che avrebbe potuto essere grande quanto Marte, ma che ha perso i suoi strati rocciosi esterni a causa di una serie di violente collisioni miliardi di anni fa.

J'ai acheté #Airliquide au quasi top et j'assume complètement.

Voila pourquoi 👇 Image
Vous avez tous entendu parlé des méga-trends. Ces tendances de fond qui ont un impact significatif sur l'économie, la société et l'environnement.

Les #investisseurs qui sont en mesure de les détecter peuvent tirer parti de ces tendances pour maximiser leur performance. Image
En ce moment tout le monde ne jure que par l' #IA , les cryptomonnaies et le métavers. Mais il y a quelque chose de beaucoup plus concret que tout le monde oublie :

L'industrie spatiale...

J'en avais parlé dans ce thread passé inaperçu mais je vais insister.

One of the big debates lately is over #nuclear energy.

Some say it's necessary for #NetZero by 2050.

Others say it's not net-positive for the #environment.

So are smaller reactors☢️a good alternative?🤝
Small Modular Reactors (#SMR )promise to bring a 'modular', more adaptable solution.

Build for a very specific purpose?
👉+1 SMR
Need to scale up for the grid?
👉+10 SMRs (SMR Farm)
Need to ramp down because #fusion finally arrived?
👉 -1 SMR per year
Micro-reactors promise to bring portable nuclear using #SpaceX tech.

👉Fits in a container, hauled by truck/ship
👉Perfect for off-grid emergencies
👉Swallow the diesel generator market
👉Doesn't need refuelling for >10 years
👉Made in Assembly Line
👉Less fuel=safe

@elonmusk is not from the USA. He was born in South Africa and later naturalized Canadian (and at around age 30 USA). So he doesn't seem to understand US government or how balanced (trending to Conservative) it already is. #Midterms2022 #RedWaveComing #BlueTsunami2022 1/ Image
@elonmusk 2/ Our government is currently a listing ship. A #RedTsunami might capsize us. I'd also caution anyone listening to Musk for advice outside of #SpaceX or #Tesla matters. He was so, so, so, so wrong.…: Image
@elonmusk 3/ Apparently the fact #SCOTUS is the most unbalanced it's ever been in my memory escapes Elon Musk. Did you know there are only 48 Democrat Senators while the Republicans have 50?… Image

Spitballing about DART & Dimorphos. Yes, actual scientists have done TONS of rocket science, impact calcs, modeling, scenarios, etc, & now are analyzing data for making this efficient & viable at redirecting killer asteroids. But this is just for funsies! A 🧵
This was basically a fast refrigerator hitting a stadium sized gravel pile. In my head, that's not what an asteroid was. They're MOUNTAINS. IN. SPACE. But as a lot of recent missions have shown, and asteroid researchers suspected for years, a lot are just loose piles of rubble.
They're loosely held together by static forces and gravity, but not that much gravity. If they're more potato than sphere, there's not enough compression to form them into solid bodies. So, less mountain, more ball pit. At least for these types of asteroids. Really surprised me.

Prepárate, que hoy a las 19:00 horas 🗓️ podrás ver en tiempo real cómo la misión #DART de la @NASA impactará al asteroide Dimorphos. ☄️

Mira aquí la transmisión en directo 👉
¿Qué significa DART? 🤔 Como sacado de una película, Doble Prueba de Redirección de Asteroide de la NASA es una iniciativa que busca colisionar contra asteroides con trayectoria hacia la Tierra y alterar su viaje. 💥 Image
¿Cómo podremos verlo en tiempo real? Gracias a su cámara DRACO, la que enviará imágenes cada segundo en tiempo real hacia la Tierra.

Una vez impacte al asteroide, se observará una cegadora luz.También el pequeño espía LICIACube entregará una visión de la superficie de Dimorphos. Image
