We're relieved that the first true SpaceX Starship hop test is confirmed to be attempted next week. Besides, there're some exciting updates on the Chinese moon program, NASA Orion spacecraft and NASA Dragonfly mission.

SpaceX engineers finally have solved the critical vibration issue which was responsible for the delay of Starship first hop test. Now that the undesirable resonance has been fixed, SN06 raptor engine is being installed into the Starship prototype, Starhopper. The first untethered hover test of Starhopper could be attempted on July 16th in Boca Chica, Texas.

The work on the SpaceX Starship orbital prototype in Florida and Texas, respectively, is progressing rapidly. Hence we expect the overdue Elon Musk Starship presentation taking place soon.

NASA's Orion launch abort system test (LAS) has been a success. Nonetheless, we believe that much more NASA and SpaceX collaboration is needed if NASA wants to return to the Moon by 2024.

China's Longjiang-2 lunar orbiter captured some stunning pictures of a full solar eclipse on Earth from the perspective of the Moon.

We explain that NASA's Dragonfly Titan probe will be powered by a multi-mission radioisotope thermoelectric generator (MMRTG). The Dragonfly drone is expected to spend several years on Titan and we're looking forward to some unique images form this Saturn moon.

We really can't wait to see Starhopper’s first true test flight, and an updated presentation on Starship, Super Heavy as well as SpaceX's Moon and Mars colonization plans. Furthermore, Elon Musk has hinted that 20-km suborbital flight tests with SpaceX orbital Starship prototypes can be expected later this year.

We're amazed that not only EV technology is rapidly evolving, but also other futuristic transportation ideas, like The Boring Company tunnels, flying electric air taxis, and the hyperloop test track, are undergoing some real progress.

Tesla's great Q2 results require a massive increase of their battery production capacity. Tesla R&D facility, the "Skunkworks Lab", is supposed to be developing their own battery cells, so that Tesla doesn't have to rely on Panasonic battery packs. Further updates on Tesla battery pack manufacturing are expected on the Battery and Powetrain Day hosted by Elon Musk in Q3 2019.

The Chinese government is supporting Tesla Gigafactory Shanghai by planning a Tesla Parts Industrial Park, which will be drastically increasing the efficiency of Gigafactory 3's supply chain.

The solar roof of the Lightyear One electric car makes it one of the most innovative upcoming EVs. However, the high starting price of Lightyear One let us doubt its competitiveness on the electric car market.

ICE cars aren't selling well worldwide. After Daimler, now BMW is also reducing their financial targets for 2019.

Besides The Boring Company test tunnel in Hawthorne, California, the Las Vegas Convention Center Loop tunnel will be built just in time for CES 2021.

Apart from the German Lilium flying jet, also Boeing and Kitty Hawk will be partnering on electric flying air taxis.

The Chicago-to-Cleveland hyperloop track from Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) recieves support from the U.S. House of Representatives. On the other hand, Virgin Hyperloop One is preparing a hyperloop train in India, aiming at reducing the travelling time between Mumbai and Pune from hours to 13 minutes.

We explain why Saturn's largest moon Titan is an extremely interesting target for NASA's newly announced Dragonfly mission, why the Falcon Heavy missed landing drone ship during the latest SpaceX launch, as well as the fast progress of SpaceX orbital Starship prototypes in Cocoa, Florida, and Boca Chica, Texas.

Despite the Falcon Heavy center core crash into the ocean, the rocket successfully deployed SpaceX most expensive payload so far. The reason for the center core landing failure is that the extreme heat, caused by the highest atmospheric reentry speed to date, had damaged the rocket’s central engine.

With regard to the SpaceX center core lost as well as inspired by the discussion of our viewers, we explain why a parachute landing of rockets are impractical if not impossible. Hence landing the rocket on a drone ship is still the safest and most economical option.
We're amazed by the fast assembly of Spacex Starship orbital prototype both in Florida and Texas. And we hope to see the first hopping test of the Starship prototype in the near future.

We cannot wait for NASA Dragonfly mission exploring the in our opinion most fascinating moon in the solar system: Titan. Titan namely has all the basic ingredients for life and is the only moon in the solar system with a thick atmosphere.

This week we didn't find much news on the Starhopper. If you have any SpaceX Starhopper Update, we would be very happy if you can tell us in the comments!

Is't a coincidence between the Tesla stock rebound and the current high density of positive news headlines on Tesla? In this video we bring you the answer to this question, our Tesla stock chart analysis, Byton production progress, and other important updates from the space of electric cars.

After big hedge funds opened huge short positions on Tesla in December 2018, negative news headlines on Tesla had been dominating the news media until May 2019. Since the famous Tesla shorter Jim Chanos only recently opened strong long positions on Tesla, now we suddenly can read lots of positive news articles about Tesla.

According to a leaked email from Elon Musk, Tesla Q2 2019 deliveries could be higher than any quarter before. Chinese volunteers are helping with delivering the Model 3 to customers and thus push hard on Tesla Model 3 sales China. Tesla Model 3 sales 2019 just completely leave any competitors, including both EV and gas car manufacturers, far behind.

You can now play the video game Tesla Arcade while waiting for your Tesla Model 3 to be charged.

The renewable energy capacity overtakes coal for the first time in the US, which also means the CO2 emissions of electric cars will further drop.

The final production design of the Byton M-byte interior has been revealed.

We're looking forward to the upcoming Falcon Heavy launch on behalf of the U.S. Air Force, and explain all the SpaceX Starhopper news, as well as NASA budget request for their 2024 Artemis mission.

The first real SpaceX Starhopper test flight is postponed due to minor damage of the raptor engine. Further SpaceX Starship update by Elon Musk is expected in late July.

Upcoming SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch to deploy the Lightsail 2 solar sail satellite on behalf of the U.S. Air Force. The solar sailing technology is crucial for enabling interstellar travels of humanity.

Jim Bridenstine estimates the cost of NASA Artemis project at 20-30 billion USD. NASA's 2024 Artemis mission differs from the past Apollo missions, as this time NASA will give contracts to industry partners to build the Lunar Gateway, the lunar lander, and maybe also the launch vehicle. We believe SpaceX's falcon heavy is much more realistic and economical than NASA's space launch system (SLS) for the 2024 moon landing.

NASA promises to let the first woman land on the moon by 2024.

We explain the most exciting updates on NASA Artemis 2024 program, SpaceX Falcon 9 launch of the Canadian Radarsat satellites, as well as the most important news from the Tesla annual shareholder meeting and our favorite Chinese electric car startup: Byton.

---------------------- NASA SpaceX Moon Update: ----------------------
We didn't find Trump's tweet on NASA's Moon and Mars plans confusing at all. It's obvious that going to the Moon and building a lunar base are essential preparation steps to colonize Mars later on. Besides, we firmly believe that the SpaceX Starship / Superheavy system is the most promising and economical option for American astronauts landing on the Moon again by 2024.

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully deployed its most expensive payload so far, the three-satellite Radarsat Constellation Mission (RCM), which is built by the Canadian subsidiary of Maxar Technologies.

---------------------- Electric Car & Tesla News: ----------------------
Even without the upcoming Tesla range upgrade teased by Elon Musk at the Tesla annual shareholder meeting, Tesla is still far ahead of all competitors.

We expect a Tesla Model S interior upgrade, a Tesla Model X interior refresh, as well as Tesla Model S range improvements happening in Quarter 3, 2019.

We expect the Tesla cyberpunk pickup truck to be revealed by the end of this summer.

Unfortunately, the Tesla Semi production has to be delayed due to battery shortage.

Byton acquired Andreas Schaaf as their new Chief Customer Officer (CCO) for the launch of their first electric car, the Byton M-byte, in Quarter 4.

In this episode, we want to present Electric Car Myths Vs Facts using some scientific data. Our goal is to completely destroy all those fake electric car myths going around, that are being promoted by news media articles, proudly sponsored by big oil and old auto.

We want to analyze the most common so-called "arguments", anti-EV people like to bring forth. There are of course many more, but we took the most important ones. For example: What are the electric car emissions? Is an electric car better for environment? And producing batteries emits CO2 as we know, so what are the electric car batteries environmental impact?

We also go further and want to take into account the whole production chain of gasoline or diesel cars, the complete well to wheel ratio, and also the complete chain for EVs, using data from the newest scientific research. We thus estimate the electric car vs gas car carbon footprint for the complete production chain.

Unsurprisingly, EVs again win against ICE cars in really any possible scenario and in any possible country. Even taking into account the lithium ion battery production, EVs still have a lower CO2 emission over their complete production and life cycle, than gasoline or diesel cars.

We therefore hope to have contributed something against all these anti-EV fake news going around, being often cited by EV-haters and petrolheads. We hope to one day see all these electric car myths busted.

We analyze the most exciting updates on Tesla and Rivian electric truck, the rebound of Tesla stock, electric flying car Germany and worldwide, as well as other important developments in the field of electric cars.

Tesla stock is rebounding as we've expected. Big hedge funds and investment banks may have already opened long positions in order to profit from the rise of the stock. We also expect the news media to be therefore more positive on Tesla in the next few months.

We're highly intrigued by Elon Musk's description of the upcoming Tesla Pickup Truck as "Cyberpunk as in Blade Runner". At the same time, the competitor Rivian Pickup Truck R1T is already revealed to have a futuristic design, a legit range, and a very attractive price.

Elon Musk updated the new Tesla Roadster acceleration to an impressive level of 3 Gs. The traditional gasoline supercars obviously cannot keep up with the next-generation Tesla Roadster with regard to both price and performance.

Tesla Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, China is almost finished, and the Chinese demand for Model 3s is so high that the ordering website has broke down.

Comparison of new electric flying car from different companies: the Lilium Jet, the Ehang 184 and the Hexa aircraft. Especially the German electric flying taxi from the Bavarian Startup Lilium has a decent flight range, low noises and high safety standards.

We explain the most exciting updates on SpaceX Starhopper news, SpaceX's collaboration with other companies to colonize Mars, NASA moon plans, and many other important developments in the field of space exploration.

SpaceX is searching industry partners for their Mars colonization plan. The availability of natural and energy resources on Mars still posts a big challenge.

NASA's constant plan changes between pursuing their space launch system (SLS) and utilizing rockets from private spaceflight companies let us worry whether NASA will accomplish their 2024 moon mission Artemis. We believe SpaceX falcon heavy is the most realistic and economical solution.

Astronomers complain about SpaceX Starlink deployment. The revenue from selling Starlink internet services will be invested in future Mars missions, which we believe are far more important for humanity. Plus, AI neural net techniques will allow to cancel out any potential traces of the Starlink satellites on astro photos.

One raptor engine has been installed on SpaceX's Starhopper, the Starship prototype. The first real SpaceX Starhopper test flight should take place before further updates on Starship and Super Heavy made by Elon Musk on June 20.

We have new infos on Byton production starting later this year in their new factory in Nanjing, China. We have some infos on their production lines, suppliers and of course on the gigantic screen in the interior.

When we first saw the Byton M-Byte being revealed at CES 2018 we were like: Ok, yeah, another futuristic looking concept car, that will never be produced like that. Or in a much more boring series version.

However, we were astounded to find out, that the Byton M-Byte will really be released with all the cool features of the concept car, even the 48 inch ultra-wide screen on the interior. We were intrigued!

We read a bit more about the company and followed closely what they were doing. Turns out, they were quite diligent since CES 2018. They built a huge Byton factory in Nanjing, which if all goes well, will enable the Byton production start by Q4 2019, so by the end of this year.

Now this is what we call speed, it's always amazing to see how fast Chinese factories are built, exactly like the Tesla Shanghai Gigafactory.

We learn some interesting things about the suppliers of the different components of the car, from the battery cells by CATL, to the interior design by Faurecia, to the level 3 self-driving capability by Aurora.
Then we of course also have to talk about that huge Byton display with its 48 inch diagonal. It's being manufactured by a not yet so well known Chinese company named BOE. Then we also talk about the software and processor powering this beast.

When talking about electric cars, we of course also have to mention Tesla, because they too are building their huge Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai at a record speed. So who will win this fight Byton vs Tesla?

We speculate about the future and come to the conclusion that Byton could become a large player in the new electric vehicle market. But Tesla certainly isn't sleeping, and it will be interesting to see who will lead in the 2020s.

We believe Elon Musk will make SpaceX Mars Colony come true within the next 20 years. Hence we want to explain the SpaceX Mars timeline and a basic Mars colony concept in detail.

We think that it is extremely important for humanity to become a multiplanetary species, starting by establishing colonies on Mars and on the Moon. If not, any fatal event on Earth could easily lead to our ultimate extinction.

So how exactly does SpaceX Mars colony plan look like? And what importance do NASA's recent moon plans have in all this? Obviously, the recent Starhopper and raptor engine tests are the first step to build the SpaceX Starship and Superheavy rocket system that will fly humans to Mars and the Moon.

We believe that the Moon will come first, since NASA will probably send American astronauts to the Moon in using SpaceX's Starship by 2024, as right now there is no other system capable of landing humans on the Moon. Through contracts with NASA and SpaceX moon mission with the Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa, SpaceX will have enough funds to launch SpaceX Mars rockets with supplies by the mid 2020s.

After that, we assume that the first SpaceX manned flight to Mars could take place as early as 2028-2030 (Elon's timeline + a few years usually gives the right time estimate XD). Once on Mars, SpaceX will probably NOT build the Mars colony themselves, but leave that to other private companies. The first Mars shelters and habitats will most likely be manufactured with 3D printing technology.

At the same time, the Moon colony will be NASA's focus. Therefore, humanity will have at least two well-developed off-world colonies and become a multiplanetary species by the late 2030s.

We dive deep into the motives and methods of the Tesla stock short sellers. What does the recent Tesla Stock Drop mean in the broader picture? Is the Tesla stock a buy or sell? We present our view of the recent drop and our Tesla stock analysis. We come to the conclusion that most of this drop is driven by good old FUD news, initiated by powerful shorters from hedge funds.

We also see that a situation exactly like this already occurred back in early 2016, where we had really similar FUD news, that drove the Tesla stock price down, like this time, by a factor of 2. In our opinion, the Tesla stock fair value should be quite higher, since a lot of good news are actually happening, like the Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai, and the possibly best quarter result in Tesla history around the corner.

A Tesla stock short would be highly dangerous in our opinion, since we think that the Tesla stock will rebound strongly very soon. The same happened in early 2016, where a strong rally occurred after the low.

We can witness an A-grade manipulation by short sellers going on, which is driving down the price much more than would be reasonable. We also do a bit of Tesla stock chart analysis, but really try to keep it to a simple level, without having to know about indicators or other technical terms. We want the viewers to understand how stock market manipulation works and why we think that the Tesla stock will go up very soon.

With our Tesla stock chart analysis we therefore come to the conclusion that the recent Tesla stock drop can be fully explained by fraudulent shorter activity, influencing the news media to very negative anti Tesla news releases.

In our Tesla stock prediction we estimate that in the next rally, the stock will rebound and soon actually start making new highs, as crazy as this might sound. We find Tesla stock undervalued and see that the news headlines causing this are very similar to the ones from 2016.

Back then we had slow Model X production and supposedly low Model X demand, now the same for the Model 3. But in fact, Model 3 demand keeps growing, and the Tesla Model 3 is indeed one of the best selling cars in the US. The Gigafactory 3 will soon go online and pump out lots of Model 3 onto the Chinese market. Q2 2019 is rumored to become the most successful in Tesla history.

It is therefore our prediction that the future of Tesla looks bright indeed and that the negative news cannot keep this undervalued stock down much longer.

Disclaimer: this video was originally uploaded on YouTube on Jan 7, 2019. But we really enjoyed the topic of this video, so we also want to share it with you on BitChute.

With the success of the unmanned Chinese moon landing on the far side of the moon, we wonder when the first Chinese astronauts, or better taikonauts, will travel to the moon? In this video, we not only explain the latest Chinese moon mission Chang'e-4, but also give an overview of the Chinese human spaceflight ambitions which surprisingly date back to the 1970s.

⚠️WARNING: This episode contains insane conspiracy theory jokes!⚠️

Chang'e 4 was launched on 7 December 2018 and successfully landed on 3 January 2019 on the South Pole-Aitken Basin. This certainly marks a significant progress of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program (CLEP). And if you are wondering why the Chinese space program contains so many weird names, there are actually some beautiful ancient legends behind these names!

The lunar lander is named after the Chinese goddess of the moon "Chang'e"🌙 The name "Yutu" of the lunar rover literally translates to "Jade Rabbit"🐰 In Chinese folklore, the rabbit is often portrayed as a companion of the goddess Chang'e living on the moon and pounds the elixir of life for her. Then, the name "Queqiao" of the communication relay satellite means "Magpie Bridge"🐦 in Chinese and is derived from another ancient folklore. You've probably heard of the Chinese Valentine's Day, the so-called Qixi Festival. It's celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar and is supposed to be the single day in a year, on which a legendary cowherd can meet his goddess wife. The couple is unfortunately not allowed to live together, and only on this special day the magpies would build a magical bridge for them to meet across the Milky Way.

So what are the future plans of the Chinese moon project? Even though no official timeline is publicly available, it's kind of an open secret that the Chinese space agency is working on manned lunar explorations. Early engine tests of a heavy lift rocket, which would bring taikonauts to the moon, are already underway. The rocket is called Changzheng 9 or Long March 9. It's supposed to have a quite formidable lift capacity similar to the Saturn V, and being only slightly weaker than SpaceX's super heavy.

It almost seems as if everyone is taken by surprise on China's incredible fast pace, with which China is catching up in space. So who will be the first bringing human back to the moon in this new moon race, or better space race? The Chinese, NASA's Space Launch System (SLS), or SpaceX's starship/super heavy system? In any case, China's moon ambitions have certainly encouraged the global development of space technologies. We're really looking forward to the next milestone in human spaceflight within the next few years.

Despite being the most successful electric car manufacturer and a pioneer in clean energy, why is there so much NEGATIVE NEWS on Tesla? Who is actually profiting from all those negative news stories? We have been asking ourselves these questions for a long time. Now we share with you the both sad and disgusting answer in this video.

First, big oil companies and legacy car makers obviously see their existence being threatened by the increasing popularity of Tesla cars. Unfortunately, these traditional companies often have a huge influence on national governments and mainstream news media. As a result, news articles about Tesla are often negatively biased.

We are not saying that the negative news on Tesla don't have any truth in it, but the news media is deliberately highlighting any tiny adverse story about Tesla they could find. At the same time, any positive development of Tesla and any positive impact of electric cars on our society are presented in a minimalist manner.

For example, you might have heard of a lot of "Another Tesla car caught fire" headlines during the last three years. Therefore, an electric car must be much more dangerous than a gasoline or a diesel car, right? Because a gasoline or a diesel car never burn, right? Absolutely NO! According to a report from the National Fire Protection Association of the US, there were 174,000 vehicle fires only in 2015. But why does nobody mention this pretty relevant statistical detail in any of those Tesla fire news? Hmmm.....

Besides the major players in the automobile industry, Tesla shorters from big hedge funds are another important driving force behind the aggressively negative news headlines on Tesla. By exaggerating any negative development of Tesla or Elon Musk, financial manipulators have been making huge profits from the sudden and dramatic drops of Tesla stock.

This market manipulation strategy is called FUD: Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. It's not a new disinformation strategy, but many people are still unaware that this strategy is currently being systematically used against Tesla. Something very familiar to us from the bitcoin and crypto currency space.

We hope we could bring a little bit light behind the constant flood of the biased news report on Tesla, and we are curious to hear your thoughts in the comment section!

Hence you will not only find news analysis on Tesla and SpaceX, two extremely innovative and successful companies linked by Elon Musk, but also in-depth discussions about EVs and space exploration in general on this channel.

We promise to upload videos at least once per week and we're looking forward to your thoughts and comments in any of our videos!
