Good space journalists to follow:

SpaceX related sites:

~~~~~~ News from Elon’s press conference ~~~~~~~~
- doing a six-hour coast before final second-stage burn; going through Van Allen Belts. Also fuel could freeze or oxygen lost.
- Tesla will be placed into a heliocentric orbit and become a Earth-Mars cycler; only extremely tiny chance of hitting Mars in foreseeable future.
- one area of concern is relative interactions of the three booster cores; could be resonance or shockwave impingement. Once second stage separates, we’re in much more known territory other than long-duration coast.
- looks like development of BFR is moving quickly, and won’t be necessary to qualify Falcon Heavy for crewed spaceflight.
- if we’re successful, offer near super-heavy-lift for little more than Falcon 9. “Game over” for all other heavy-lift rockets.
- if successful with this test launch, we’ll be ready to put a satellite on the next Falcon Heavy launch.
- if successful should be able to d another FH in three to six months. Can produce them at a pretty rapid rate.
- if we wanted to, we could add to more side boosters, make it Falcon Super Heavy.
- we kind of tabled Crew Dragon on Falcon Heavy (including the cislunar mission announced last Feb.) and focus our energies on BFR.
- it would be a “real huge downer” if Falcon Heavy blows up, but hope to learn a lot. It’s a win if it just clears the pad.
- main reason for the six-hour coast is to demonstrate direct GEO insertion (for national security customers).
- will be three cameras mounted on the Roadster, should provide “epic views” if all goes well.
- it should be an exciting day tomorrow. We’ll have a good time whatever happens.

I mean it's mainly the structure that has to be designed. They know how to do instrumentation, sensor suites, computers, comms, power, and the engine is pretty fleshed out. Just gotta throw all of their existing tech into a phatt BFR shell and stick some raptors on the bottom.

Dragon 2 is being built on contract to NASA. The delays are from dealing with NASA bureaucracy. It's NASA. They've managed to drag out Orion development for fourteen years, and it'll likely be an even twenty before it actually carries astronauts into space, if it doesn't get cancelled first.

Anyway, BFR has been under development for years already, and if anything, it's easier to design a large crew vehicle than a small one. No need to miniaturize the life support equipment.

>> No.9488767

yes. they've already bought tooling, they've already constructed test articles for components, and they've already committed to phasing out F9/FH/Dragon when BFR is flying.

I know SpaceX will probably want to take on additional passengers if they actually go down that route. But can you imagine for a second how fucking awesome it would be if you could have the entire BFR just for the two of you for a trip around the moon?

I don't see how a reusable rocket with a cheap launch cost and massive payload capability is useless. The technology for the BFR is pretty much already there, they just need to integrate it into the BFR shell.

>> No.9489047

Well, firstly it won't be cheap. They can't get a smaller rocket to be the mythical and totally true "$200k" per launch. And yes, a massive payload capacity is useless. No one needs such massive payloads. The most powerful rocket that exists today is the Delta 4 Heavy, and that's only flown every 18 months or so and only carries US government payloads.

I find the downplaying of rocket development and the simplification of engineering to be hilarious. The "technology" for rockets in general has been around for over half a century, yet rocket development still takes an inordinate amount of time and failures are still possible.

SpaceX is committed to it. The Red Dragon Mars platform and the lunar tourist mission were both cancelled because they distracted from BFR. Facilities are early in planning.

Because it costs 400k

>> No.9489100

Not really. The thing many people don't realize is that the launch costs are a fraction of the total cost of a satellite/probe. Just look at the cost of probes or telescopes and compare them to the cost of the rocket they launched on.

Cassini–Huygens: 3.26B, launched on a Titan IV
Curiosity: 2.5B, launched on an Atlas V
Juno: 1.1B, launched on an Atlas V
New Horizons: 700M, launched on an Atlas V
James Webb: 8.8B, planned for launch on an Ariane 5.
Euclid: 1.2B, planned for launch on a Soyuz 2
BepiColombo: 1.2B, planned for launch on an Ariane 5.

I could go on, but you get the point.

>> No.9489104

lots of that cost is due to size, weight, and time restrictions.
The missions are specced to last 15+ years or whatever.

With high launch cadence and low $/kg to orbit, probes can be cheaper simply due to the fact that you can launch 2x the mass 4x as often for 1/2 the cost.

>> No.9489105

>> No.9489131

The costs are so high in that list of probes because:
1) they can't do lots of flights to test technology or work on them from orbital space stations where real space conditions are just an airlock away, so they end up spending huge amounts of money doing testing and analysis on the ground to make sure things will work on the first try,
2) the rockets are anemic, so they end up spending huge amounts of money on keeping the mass down, and often having to go back to the drawing board after a large investment in development because something violated the mass budget,
3) these are big government projects where there's no monetary return, so the profit motive is entirely focused on extracting the maximum amount of funds from the public purse into specific individual hands, and the high cost and low launch rate of existing launch vehicles makes that far easier for the profiteers, and
4) you're cherry-picking the most expensive missions, the ones where costs spiralled out of control (related to the above three factors) but people played politics well enough to keep the money flowing.

The first two factors still apply: the high launch costs prevent in-space testing or strategies of launching multiples in case of failure, and the low payloads require a lot of effort to minimize mass.

>A typical weather satellite carries a price tag of $290 million; a spy satellite might cost an additional $100 million.
Those figures are close to the actual cost of a launch. SpaceX has been drastically undercutting the competition.

the other reason is that Elon and co. want the focus to be on the rocket, and not on the payload.

You're way overestimating that. Lots of people like the idea, but to actually go? One way?

Never again relax in a grassy field and watch puffy white clouds in the blue sky, or have a day at the beach with your friends? Earth is a hell of a nice place, and the thought of never returning to it is horrifying to most people.

Maybe someday Mars will be developed to the point of being as comfortable and fun to be on as Earth, but the pioneers will likely either expect they can return to Earth at some point, or they'll be escaping bad conditions on Earth.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little primitive? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Gene Warrior Corps, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the Unbidden, and I have over 300 confirmed Spectral Wraith kills. I am trained in psychic warfare and I’m the top tachyon sniper in the entire Commonwealth of Man navy. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Galaxy, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the AI-net? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of infiltration teams across the galaxy and your planet is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your planet. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Enigmatic Fortress and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the universe, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
