So in fact, there are a lot of companies that are poised to exploit the large cheap payload capacity that Starship is about to bring online, but its mostly still startups that are in their early stages (and I mean they have to wait for Starship to start operations too to start actually doing stuff in space).
There migth actually be an explosion in activity quite quickly after Starship gets online, no need to wait for legacy players that take forever. Startups will start doing shit right away. Makes me even more anxious to see the hop work

It's a new-ish vessel. Yeah, they've got lots of experience with life support, but there's value in validating the specific implementation of it here. Just as we've been flying orbital missions since the 60s, but still expect Starliner to complete flight tests before bringing it into operational status.
Additionally, the flight hardware should be ready by 2024, while hardware for a landing (or even establishing/visiting Gateway) won't be, and they can't just twiddle their thumbs for the greater part of a decade waiting on other parts of the program to play catch-up.
Orion itself has been in development in one form or another since the 00s, so there's an element of finally flying crews on this vessel designed to fly crews.
And given how the rest of the program has gone, it's probably best not to simply assume everything will be fine for the actual landing attempt; there's a spectacular capacity for things to go wrong. SLS was originally supposed to launch in 2016, after all.

Of course, "merely orbiting" the Moon is a step down from "we landed before and we'll land again". For PR/interest purposes, if I were doing planning I'd try to beat Apollo 13's record for distance from Earth, then fill the media with talk of "pushing the envelope" and going where no man has gone before.

That should heavily depend on the specific date they launch/reach the Moon. Lunar orbit is elliptical and Apollo 13 went around it near Lunar apogee. Variation in lunar distance to Earth is ~50,000 km/27,000 nmi, so higher altitude wouldn't be sufficient to break the record for most of the Moon's orbit.

>Continuing the Saturn program might have been better short term (which, mind you, is only obvious with hindsight)
sometimes I like to imagine if they had decided to give the Saturn 5 an extra 10 years of life and had just ordered maybe ten more from the production line instead of shutting it down, with this extra time and Saturn hardware we could have gone ahead with the planned Apollo moon landings in the mid 70s such as Apollos 18, 19, and 20, and still had Saturn 5 rockets available to construct a station in the late 70s, maybe one constructed from multiple Saturn 5 launches (I like to imagine the construction of a Space Station Independence beginning in 1976 and coinciding with the bicentennial) and we still would have had a few left for dream missions like a big long-duration rover landed on the moon or a huge probe launched towards Mars or Jupiter or wherever. I also think they could have developed a cheaper 1st stage that used 3 or 4 F-1s (a case could probably have even been made for developing a slimmed down rocket that used a single F-1 and maybe strap-ons as needed for resupply missions, etc) and I think following this late 70s/early 80s "golden age of Apollo/Saturn" they could have developed a follow on (shuttle? something else?) and enjoyed the 10 years of technological development to make a better and safer product that would have been better than the 70s designed and built shuttle. Oh well.

>> No.15313563

Yeah, in the scenario where Saturn V production continued, one of the obvious applications would be tossing a large space station into orbit. Saturn V would be inappropriate for routine missions to the station, which would suggest another crewed vessel for LEO operations. The same dynamic that played out between shuttle proposals and a Titan-based capsule would occur, leading to a shuttle selection. An extant station would've provided political shielding against the miserly conditions that prevailed post-Apollo 11, perhaps allowing for a more rational program of shuttle development.

IRL they traded off guaranteed higher operational costs/lower capability ceiling for lower peak development costs. Perhaps in that timeline, they're motivated to do the opposite and optimize for operational costs/performance at the expense of higher costs during development. That scenario would also mean NASA needing to make fewer political compromises, which would allow it to start off from a far smaller shuttle and iterate its way up as needed/funded.

you need an absurd amount of algae to process even 1 human's worth of o2 intake/co2 output. I think currently it's about 400 gallons of highly populated water even with the best genetically engineered algae, but if you also want them to be edible it'll require a thousand or more gallons of growing media for one 80kg male with a BMR of 2200kcal/day - and that's not even close to nutritionally complete by any means, just raw calories.

absolutely not suitable for the ISS or any station that isn't spin-grav sized; it would make a lot of sense on an O'niel Cylinder or a land base on another planet though. the biggest limitation isn't even size constraints, but rather energy. without either a huge solar collector mirror array or massive LED banks running off nuclear generation, the algae won't be able to keep up with a human's consumption requirements.

the ISS currently ditches about 56 KW of heat per ~90min. orbit, for about 40KWh for the total system capacity
>The PVR – the radiator – is deployable on orbit and comprised of two separate flow paths through seven panels. Each flow path is independent and is connected to one of the two PFCSs on the IEA. In total, the PVR can reject up to 14 kW of heat into deep space. The PVR weighs 1,633 pounds (740.7 kilograms) and when deployed measures 10.24 feet (3.12 meters) by 44.62 feet (13.6 meters). When the ISS assembly is complete, there will be a total of four PVRs, one for each PV module (S4, P4, P6, S6)

1000 km sounds far, but it actually embarrassingly short. At walking speed of 5 km/h, that's only 200 hours of usage. At Gene Cernan's max speed of 18 km/h, that'd be 55 hours.
I would hope that a pressurized rover (which will no doubt cost NASA billions of dollars) would have a lifetime in the thousands to tens of thousands of hours. And potentially indefinitely, so long as worn-out parts are replaced and maintenance is conducted.

NTA, but unlimited water/air/fuel on hand as long as you have some fission to process it. For Mars it remains to be seen how scalable water/air in situ will be for long term colonization, also cuts in to the amount of fuel you can make. For Titan the main constraint will be metals to upkeep devices used to process resources. Both Mars and Titan will probably have immense tool upkeep to maintain local extraction and processing facilities.

well amazon has multiple successful sub-businesses and I think they make most of their money from AWS cloud services
I don't know enough about bezos, amazon or aws to know how much bezos actually had a say in it, but just because blue origin is what it is I wouldn't say bezos is a lucky one hit wonder
I have the impression that Blue Origin is more of a hobby to Bezos instead of a real passion, there is no sense of urgency and it doesnt' really matter to him if it succeeds or not, he hasn't been personally involved in it much and I don't really think he has much technical competence in the area
no-sense of urgency is seen on how he talks about how some x generation in the future starts actually doing stuff in space, and not something he or even the children right now would see, its something in the far future and he is just randomly throwing money at the problem basically

There are ballet productions on the big stage out in the low-gravity recreational complex that serves all the residents of our region of space. Ballet in 1/10 gravity is beautiful to watch: dreamlike, and very graceful. You've seen it on TV, but the reality is even better. Of course, right here in Alpha we have our own low-gravity swimming pools, and our club rooms for human-powered flight.

LAKES of liquid methane lie on Titan, a moon larger than Mercury, just waiting to be used.

Here's wikipedia: "The radiation level at the surface of Ganymede is considerably lower than at Europa, being 50–80 mSv (5–8 rem) per day, an amount that would cause severe illness or death in human beings exposed for two months."

Planetary and solar radiation shielding is a solved problem. Because it's a neutral plasma, you have electrons to work with. A relatively weak magnetic field can create a dome of electrons, which electrostatically deflects the protons as they penetrate it. This is what plasma magnet is, effectively. But the effect has been demonstrated in the lab independently of the whole plasma magnet thing.
You've probably seen calculations that suggest that magnetic shielding would require impractically strong fields. But these use a simple vacuum assumption in which a proton is deflected in complete isolation. When you take the plasma effects into account the situation is much more practical.

I can see it now, the first tower catch attempt. The booster comes roaring down to stop perfectly centered between the arms, hovering there just the way bricks don't.

That's a side issue. We're talking about Jupiter's radiation belts. Plasma shielding means that all the Galilean moons are an option. GCRs are orders of magnitude less of a problem than the radiation belts.
