Well it’s not that suspicious when you realize
a) public support took a nosedive after Apollo 11. Trying to justify 6 more attempts was already stretching it. Then the politicians said “fuck this, there’s no point in spending more for this”
b) Fast forward 50 years later: congress/NASA has only focused on low earth orbit this whole time. Yes they have SLS/Orion now, but everyone who worked on Apollo and has experience is long retired or dead. Orion could have been launched with humans on the first flight but they were too nervous after having lost crew in challenger and columbia. They want to go incrementally. SLS / Orion are literally paid more to sit around and do nothing. There is LITERALLY no incentive to go fast because it’s not like we’re in a space race

>In first half of March 2023, unofficial reports said that Kazakh authorities had seized all TsENKI assets in Baikonur and even ordered its local head in Kazakhstan not to leave the country. As long predicted, and if proved to be true, the move would essentially spell the end of the Baiterek project and would possibly derail the entire Soyuz-5 rocket development project leaving it without a launch site. In mid March 2023, Roskosmos delegation traveled to Astana to discuss the situation with Minister Musin in the hope of resolving the dispute by an expected visit to Kazakhstan by Putin sometimes later in the year.

Different person, if anyone ever said that. In any case, tubes could hold the majority of humanity and still be controlled by the same people who control planetary resources.

1) The US continues a “do not associate” relationship with China space. This option leaves an ENTIRE space sector to grow on its own, with likely allies including Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Pakistan, ESA, brazil(?), others.
2) The US enters some sort of limited partnership, with the intent of cow-tying them into LEO stations or something, the same way we did with Russia.
3) The US becomes allies? I don’t know what end this would have or if it will ever even happen
Which is the worst scenario? I think ignoring them could potentially bite us in the ass long term. Trying to cooperate would probably hurt us shorter term if they tried to steal tech or ideas.

The design bureaus originated during the 1930s and 40s. There's never going to be one superorganization to rule them all, or exactly one unanimous operational concept. There will be disagreement and difference, which creates competition as groups move to try to get their ideas implemented. There was a large transfer, for example, from traditional aviation into missiles and rocketry in the late 1950s/early 1960s as the USSR intensified its ICBM and SLBM effort. Then, there were multiple entrants (Korolev's group, Chelomei's, Yangel's) with different backgrounds and different strengths, making individual proposals to the procurement authorities. Even with a single project-proposal, there was ample room for dissension over the best option, like the Glushko-Korolev controversy over the N-1's engines.
>even under the most stressing days of ww2
Yakovlev, Mikoyan, Sukhoi, Tupolev, Illyushin, Lavochkin, etc. Similar dynamic, except the scale and relative immaturity of aviation meant that there was enough room to simultaneously fund multiple groups.

Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons (some space stuff but not that much, really good though)

Gateway (and the rest of the heechee saga) by Fredrik Pohl
The moon is a harsh mistress by Robert A. Heinlein

Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke

a lot more too, but that is already a bit to get through (some of which you have probably read already)
also, not everything on the list is purely about spaceflight, but I'm pretty sure all of them have it in the backround at least (if not in a prominent role)

>If you talk to indigenous people — I’m thinking particularly of Inuit cosmology, of Ojibwe cosmology, of Bawaka cosmology from Australia — they will tell you that outer space isn’t empty at all, that it actually is inhabited, that there are indigenous people there: their ancestors.
>I don’t think it’s so much a panic with respect to human nature as it is a panic with respect to capitalist nature. It’s not all of humanity that wants to conquer the stars; it’s a destructive subsection of humanity that claims to be speaking on behalf of all of humanity and telling us that either all of humanity is going to become extinct forever or we need to nuke Mars
>The journey that Europeans made across the seas to conquer the Americas and then the journey that white-descended Americans made across the North American continent through what’s known as Manifest Destiny gets extended in the mid-20th century as a new frontier is proclaimed to be open, the frontier of outer space. The space race is a new chapter in European-style colonialism — a vertical extension of that colonial project — as an effort to get more land and more resources for an imperial nation.

Its nonsense.

If Starship launches 50 times a year with 100 Starlinks, it will have launched 5000 sats. SpaceX is pursuing 30000 sats. 30000/5000 = 6 years. With 6 years life for satellites, they can then upgrade to next gen sats on the go as well. So its perfect candance even if they have no other customers. They'll generate hundreds of billions with Starlink alone.

With additional 25 customer launch per year, thats 75 launches per year.

question, does anyone do carbon fiber composites where instead of using a plastic resin, they use a metal to embed the fibers?
Carbon has an insanely high melting point so barring chemical reactions it should be possible to make carbon fiber reinforced metals of all kinds, even tungsten, by first weaving up your component then flowing in your molten metal, then applying uniform pressure to force the metal to surround the fibers before cooling it down.
I ask because the biggest drawback of carbon composites at the moment is that they suck at handling exposure to heat, because of that resin component.

None of the hoppers used Raptor 2 engines tho, and from what we've seen the Raptor 2 plume is significantly more yellow than the Raptor plumes were.

All rocket engines run a fuel rich main combustion chamber. This includes all ocygen rich staged combustion engines, gas generator engines, expander engines, pressure fed engines, and full flow engines, plus any other bipropellant engine I didn't specify.
Oxygen rich, full flow, these terms refer purely to the powerhead cycle, which may be oxygen rich or fuel rich or both (or neither, in the case of engines which used pumps powered by decomposition of a third propellant). The RD-180 for example is the poster child for oxygen rich engines. It runs fuel rich, but it uses an oxygen rich turbine for pumping power.

I feel like this is something that could be experimented with on a desktop scale in someone's garage, which is why it's surprising to me that I can't find any information about it at all. One could even work out the layup and process techniques using a low temperature alloy first, then go up from there.
Of course the strength of a carbon fiber composite is in the fibers, not the binder material, so really we don't care much about the strength of the metal binder so much as its heat resistance. Even just using aluminum would improve the CFC heat resistance properties, while copper or even niobium would make it far more resistant to heat, probably to the point that material property changes due to metal carbide formation would be the limiting factor rather than thermal softening.

Using metals as a binder is going to add a lot of density to the CFC material and therefore worsen its strength to mass ratio a lot, but Starship is made of steel, so as long as whatever material you can make and work with is lighter than steel and at least as strong and heat resistant, then it may be valuable to investigate.

Excuse the retards above
While Baikonur has historically been Russia and the USSR's main launch pad, it's not their only one. They also have Plesetsk (located near Arkhangelsk, a few hundred km east of St petersburg and Finland), which has been their main site for launching spy sats into polar orbits since forever, and Vostochny, which is located in the russian far east next to the border with China, and which is supposed to be the replacement for Baikonur, it opened in 2016 but has had trouble ramping up since.

Kazakhstan is not seizing all of Baikonur, but only the russian facilities on an old launch pad which used to launch ukrainian rockets and which has since been renovated to launch a new Russian rocket which would replace Soyuz (it's called Soyuz 5 but it's a completely different rocket), however there's some shady stuff and corruption and Kazakhstan has had enough and stopped cooperation on this particular project, but the rest of Baikonur will still be used to launch Soyuz for the next 10 years at least.

As for the general future, the #1 priority right now for russia is to increase satellite production, russia historically made good rockets and good crewed spacecrafts but poor satellites and probes, and with Starlink giving the ukrainian an advantage on the battlefield and its chinese and european equivalent coming soon, they're desperate at making a similar constellation of satellite. However this will take years.

Their historical priority is continued crewed space presence, they'll keep servicing the ISS until 2030 and plan on launching a small station (smaller than Mir) named ROSS (POCC) in 2028, one of the module is mostly done but there are funding uncertainties.

They also have a lunar program, they'll launch Luna-25 this summer, it'll be the first spacecraft to land on the moon's south pole if everything goes right, beside that they've also recently signed agreements for a lunar base with China in the 2030s.

I'm not reasoning by analogy in order to debooonk helion. I am making an analogy to describe the situation, that being of an expert in fusion physics who has worked with real life fusion experiments for decades and has deep knowlege of all the challenges of fusion pointing out that helion's approach is severely flawed and will not function as they intend it to (for example, helion makes the claim that their He3-D fusion reactors will be aneutronic, or at least mostly aneutronic, while the youtube guy correctly points out that even if they were to achieve the temperature regime where He3-D fusion starts to dominate over the D-D side reaction, the gross neutron flux would still be extremely intense and not even close to aneutronic).
Look I'm not a fusion doomer, and I do hope that something useful comes out of helion's efforts, but based on everything I have read about fusion physics I don't believe their current path forward makes any sense. I'm far more confident in the people going after a more conventional tokamak design with modern REBCO superconducting magnets, even moreso than ITER.

They are also VERY slowly developping a Soyuz (the spacecraft, not the rocket) replacement called Orel, it'll be a capsule more like the american ones. In the medium term it should send russians to space from the Vostochny cosmodrome

For launchers, they're probably going to use Soyuz (the rocket) for a long time, they're phasing out the Proton heavy launcher and replacing it with the Angara launchers but this is also a slow process that should still take the rest of the decade

There's some cooperation ongoing with india for their space program but it'll take time to achieve anything. They're also trying to repurpose the ExoMars mars lander for another use after the program collapsed since the start of the war.

I haven't ignored those aspects. Taking into account any amount of radius increase, improved capacitors, improved capture of fusion energy via magnetic field & charge interaction, that still does absolutely nothing to solve the fundamental problem of their approach, which is that their He3 breeding cycle makes no sense and they will always have a high neutron flux from the He3-D fusion plasma due to D-D side reactions being, at minimum, a significant fraction of fusion events.

>> No.15326783

I think theoretically it would be possible, but I don't know what benefits you would get. In a traditional carbon composite the carbon fibers take the majority of the load in tension. They have very low elongation, and then they fail brittley. Once the fibers fail the resin cannot support the load and will fail.

If you replace the matrix with metal, the fibers would still take the load and prevent elongation, so your max load wouldn't go up, and when the fibers fail, the metal would rapidly elongate under load and fail ductaily.

Neither of those shitholes represent the public. Nor does this orbital basket weaving forum. The public cannot be made to care, though they may be influenced by a successful market campaign, and the diversity campaign has not done it.

Ok, then what you are describing is a MMC a metallic matrix composite, and in theory you could use a nickel metal alloy with good thermal properties and embed your fibers in it.

That's what I'm thinking, yes. Carbon fiber composites fail under high temperature exposure right now because the plastic resin which prevents the fibers from sliding around softens and stops doing its job. Replace the resin with something which is much better at handling high temperatures and it should keep the fibers constrained at much greater heat loads, unless I'm severely misunderstanding something.

>so if it truly unworkable from "basic" physics perspective, why are they going so far to build it and whatever?
Couldn't tell you. Possibly hopium, possibly grift, very very slim possibility they already know it won't work as pitched but they're trying to attract enough funding that they can develop a physically achievable reaction that wouldn't attract investors (for example a D-T or D-D reactor with a lot of shielding and so forth which just barely self sustained but produced an excess of tritium, which could act as a tritium breeder for feeding a high fusion gain tokamak).
>is it impossible for the reaction to be close to aneutronic?
Yes. You can't prevent deuterium from finding other deuterium in a mixed He3-D fusion plasma. To get down close to aneutronic with He3-D fusion you'd need to swamp the mix with He3, over 99% concentration, which unfortunately also kills your reaction rate because He3-He3 fusion conditions are way way hotter and higher pressure than even He3-D. It's a catch 22, you either get neutron flux from your reactor or you're not doing fusion.
>optimism that they will figure something out along the way?
Figuring something out is on the table, but it won't be a solution that allows them to achieve what they're proposing. Like I said it'll be something like a self sustaining D-T fusion cycle or D-D cycle for supporting the tritium fuel requirements of a high gain tokamak at the same plant. Trust me, I punch a hole in my drywall every day in a blind rage at how physics keeps fucking us from achieving high gain fusion in a compact device. I WANT helion to build a functioning "low cost" fusion reactor. I just don't think it's gonna happen, because their approach is full of "and then a miracle occurs" steps, with processes that make no sense or are just wrong (one D-D reactor making enough He3 for several He3-D reactors, the He3-D reactors being aneutronic, etc).

Thanks, looks like these materials are used in some applications. Still though, the examples I can find appear to be primarily metal with the fiber or particulate component making up a relatively small proportion of the material. I suppose to be clear I'm talking about a material that is as close to purely carbon fiber as possible, with only the minimal amount of metal matrix present purely to provide that embedding function.

It looks like my intuition about chemical incompatibilities was correct, too. Aluminum matrix reinforced with carbon fiber does exist, but the fibers need to be coated to prevent the carbon from reacting with the aluminum to form carbide and introducing brittleness to the metal. This should be a much less serious problem with other less reactive metals, which is helpful in terms of temperature resistance anyway.

Yeah I wasn't asking about tiles but this does tangentially relate to tiles. Say your matrix metal is stainless steel, now your material (over 90% carbon fiber by volume) has the temperature resistance of stainless, but a much greater strength to weight ratio. This allows you to both keep the relatively thin ceramic tile coating, due to your walls being able to handle a larger pulse of heat during a thermal soak, and lets you remove a lot of structural mass.

You'd do this under an inert atmosphere to protect the molten metal from oxidation anyway. Remember, when it's not burning due to exposure to oxygen, carbon has the highest melting point of any element. A carbon crucible will happily contain molten tungsten at 3500 celsius. A carbon bottle could hold pressurized gaseous IRON at 3000 celsius.

The issue with any approach like that is that it's going to be very slow, difficult to scale to rocket sizes, and very expensive to produce in bulk.
I think it would be worth pursuing a different method whereby a prepared blanket of carbon fiber is loaded into a mould, the mould gets purged with a continuous flow of inert gas, and then gets a vacuum pulled on it. The mould preheats up above the melting point of the matrix metal, then the hot liquid metal is poured in. The parts of the mould are then pressed together to force the metal to fully penetrate the carbon fiber weave, with the excess metal being squeezed out of the mould through a riser. With everything pressed the mould is quenched and the metal matrix solidifies around the carbon fiber. This is effectively the same thing as a modern CFC layup with resin, except it needs to be much hotter and you need to be much more careful of oxygen ingress. This is the type of industrial process which would be WAY easier to do in space than on Earth in terms of environmental control.
