In 2011, the Space Shuttle was retired. This ended American manned access to space. Ever since, NASA has been paying the Russians to launch American astronauts on Soyuz rockets. In 2014, NASA selected two commercial partners—SpaceX and Boeing—to develop manned launch systems for a ‘Commercial Crew’ program. The idea was to replace government-operated space launch systems with commercial alternatives, through a public-private partnership. Eventually, NASA will be one customer of many for buying manned launch services from both Boeing and SpaceX, and other companies too.
This launch, Demo-2, is SpaceX’s final major test of their Dragon 2 capsule for this NASA commercial contract. If successful, it means that SpaceX will have a fully certified system to deliver NASA astronauts to space. Furthermore, this launch signifies the return of America’s capability to deliver humans into space, something which has not been possible for nine years. Demo-2 is also the first instance of a privately-owned company launching humans into orbit, and the first manned launch of a truly new spacecraft since Columbia and STS-1 in 1981.
Most importantly, this launch is the beginning of a new commercial age of manned spaceflight. Its importance cannot be understated.
Lastly, when the last shuttle left the International Space Station in 2011, the crew left behind a small American flag. The flag was only to be returned to earth by the next American crew on an American rocket to visit the station. This acted as sort of a ‘race’ between the two commercial crew partners, Boeing and SpaceX, to see who could get the flag first. If Demo-2 is successful, SpaceX will have finally captured the flag.

Another question... Dragon II was made as part of the commercial crew program. Were the other companies "competing" for this first launch or was SpaceX always the plan. Did they not choose starliner because of the shitty first launch?

>> No.11714916 [DELETED] 

The planned manned launch has been bouncing around for both providers. The Starliner failure, Dragon test stand explosion, and other events have all been mucking with the schedule.
The first starliner manned launch is entirely separate, with a different crew and such.

Starliner is still planned. They just have to re-fly the unmanned demo. NASA wants redundancy, so both vehicles should be completed.

Both. The other competitor, Boeing's Starliner, suffered from a disaster of a first un-manned flight and has set them bag significantly.

The meatball logo gives a feeling of pioneering while the worm logo is much more futuristic-industrial. In the era it was used, it was thought that routine trips to space would happen on a weekly basis. If everything with the Dragon demo flights goes well, the dream that the Space Shuttle failed to deliver on can be provided by SpaceX, making the worm logo an appropriate one to add.

On YouTube NASA has various videos where they present their yearly astronaut classes. Those videos may be useful for you because the astronauts talk about their backgrounds and they answer questions about their paths that got them to becoming NASA astronauts. The big takeaway I got from those is that NASA wants their astronauts to have a specific skill set. For example, NASA always has at least 1 or 2 medical professionals as part of the ISS crew.

>but what if there's some failure mode that they haven't looked at yet?
Then that failure would still be unlooked even if decades of testing were done. Testing can only reveal so much. Eventually there will be a point where the chance of failure is small enough to be acceptable, but it'll never be 0%.

it was absolutely a big deal but it wasn't as big of a deal as Boeing's fuckup earlier this year, and Boeing had a similar level of fuckup during testing previously

>> No.11715551 [DELETED] 

It was a big deal. What happened was that SpaceX had good data collection and was able to quickly identify the problem, show NASA, and implement a solution that made the capsule even safer. SpaceX is fast and upgrading corrections. This would have taken Boeing years to implement and they would have requested additional funding.

This post is the definition of FUD.
They poured thousands of man hours into investigating the problem and discovered that nitrogen tetroxide vapors had moved past a check valve into the helium pressurization system. This wouldn't be too severe a problem if the check valve itself weren't made of titanium. What happened when the system was suddenly pressurized was the helium system check valve slammed closed in the presence of an oxidizer, which briefly provided the temperature and pressure necessary to combust a tiny amount of titanium. Since titanium releases so much energy when it oxidizes, the resulting small explosion caused the helium system to burst, which cascaded into a burst of the hypergolic fuel an oxidizer mix, which produced the far bigger explosion that destroyed the capsule.

The fix was to replace the titanium check valve with an aluminum burst-disk.

The burst disk absolutely will not allow oxidizer to pass backwards into the helium system. The removal of titanium also means that even if the shock conditions were somehow manifest in some other way, while the oxidizer was there for whatever reason, there would still be no combustion.

The problem is now permanently fixed. It will never happen again.

Thanks, when does your second novel come out?
I understand the problem and the solution- and obviously it makes the capsule safer. But just because you spend thousands of man hours researching and fixing a foam problem on the shuttle doesn’t mean you found out anything about the frozen O-ring problem. It’s just concerning to ME as an armchair observer that a problem of this magnitude has the potential to detonate when they didn’t even think about it in the first place. Obviously space is hard, and spacex has some of the highest turn around rates for solving problems. But is it not concerning that they didn’t assess this problem beforehand?

Well the failure mode was something completely new to science. So SpaceX didn‘t really come under review for not accounting for this.
Plus the fix was easy. Just exchange a valve that could potentially leak with a burst disk that never could.
And they had a successful in-flight abort test afterwards so it works in the real world.

Meanwhile Boeing‘s clusterfuck testflight was actually much more severe as it showed that Boeing didn‘t even properly think through the most basic procedures on a normal mission timeline with multiple systems independently failing or close to it. So that‘s a much bigger set back.

Mission elapsed time clocks don't use time zones. It's an *elapsed* time, and they didn't reset it to zero at launch. This might have been a procedural error, but it sure seems like something that should be automated in the flight software.
There were two other problems. One was that the course correction had two modes, coarse (big thrusters) and fine (little thrusters). In true pajeet form, it used the mission elapsed time clock to decide which one to fire. That resulted in the boogaloo of webm related, which used too much fuel and probably caused a thruster or two to fail. There is also talk that one of the thrusters never even fired at all, meaning it was broken at launch.
The third problem was found after they bothered to do a review of their code after the previous problems. It turns out that the spaceship weight value would not be updated after separating from the service module. This would have caused an incorrect burn which would likely have caused the capsule to back up into the detached service module, a possible loss-of-vehicle failure. They uploaded a corrected version before re-entry.
And then there was the ground abort test when one of the four parachutes (three are needed to land safely) failed to open, apparently due to human error when it was installed.
Redundancy is not to cover for bad quality control in software and manufacturing, it's to handle unforeseen problems and should not get used regularly.

It was originally going to be a 2-week mission, but the Dragon that went boom meant that they had to move to the next one for the abort test. That was going to be the original DM-2 capsule, which was not built for a full 6-month mission. So then the Crew-1 capsule became DM-2, allowing a longer mission.
I think NASA can still decide to keep them up longer, but we won't know until then.
>The first "real" crew rotation mission is scheduled for late August
So maybe as much as 8 weeks.

It was designed to be put on without any help. But one of the things NASA will evaluate on this mission and the crew's stay on the ISS if they can put the suit on themselves in 0G or they need help. I guess before the docking they can help each other out if required.

“You never know true beauty until you see Earth from space, or true terror until you hear someone knocking on the space station door from outside. You look through the porthole and see an astronaut, but all your crew is inside and accounted for. You use the comm to ask who it is and he says he’s Ramirez returning from a repair mission, but Ramirez is sitting right next to you in the command module and he’s just as confused as you are. When you tell the guy this over the radio he starts banging on the door louder and harder, begging you to let him in, saying he’s the real Ramirez. Meanwhile, the Ramirez inside with you is pleading to keep the airlock shut. It really puts life on Earth into perspective.”

I'm a Spaniard with good Mediterranean culinary culture and I love that kind of breakfast.
Only thing I wouldn't include are the beans (would use tomato-rubbed toasted bread, with olive oil), or even sauted lentils if I am very hungry.

Eating only croissant or some other small pastry is a pathetic way of doing breakfast.
If I can only have that I'd rather not eat at all. I'll have a coffee with whisky and that's it.
