Elon Musk Starship Test Progress & When Crew Dragon Finally Fly to ISS?
In this video we want to talk about the Elon Musk Starship Test in Boca Chica and at the Kennedy Space Center. We also want to talk about the Crew Dragon progress, then also about the New Glenn, Blue Origins's rocket, and about interesting new developments on the moon.
So everyone is eagerly waiting for the Elon Musk starship test rocket to laucnh from Launchpad 39A in Kennedy Space Center, or from Boca Chica spaceport, Texas. Who will be first? Well, we want to analyze the progress being made with Starship, and see that one of the Elon Musk Starship prototype in Boca Chica, now already has fins installed, and resembles a scene from a Tatooine droid junkyard, as if taken at Wattos workshop from Episode 1. We find that the earliest launch date for the Mk1 prototype in Boca Chica, is the 13th of October. However, delays are very likely. In Florida on the other hand, the Mk2 prototype first has to be transported to Launchpad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, which will happen soon. Meanwhile, preparations are underway to prepare Launchpad 39A for the upcoming launches of the Starship test flight rocket. It will first only consist of Starship launches alone, but then later for the orbital flights, starship and super heavy. For that SpaceX will need to modify the launch pad, so that super heavy won't damage the concrete foundation. We certainly will learn more on the Elon Musk starship presentation wich will take place on the coming Saturday, the 28th of September.
But then afterwards we certainly will see the that the spacex starship prototype lifts off.
Meanwhile, Blue Origin is also busy at Launchpad 36, not far from the SpaceX facilities at the Kennedy Space Center. But why are we not so enthusiastic about Blur Origin as we are for SpaceX? We explain in detail why.
Meanwhile on the moon, the chinese rover Yutu-2 discovers a strange gel-like substance, which spurs quite a few outlandish theories, as always. However, Clive Neal from the University of Notre Dame is comparing this to a finding which has been discovered by Harrison Schmitt while on the Apollo 17 mission at Taurus Littrow valley back in 1972. There, a very similar mineral composition was found, which is created by intense heat through meteorite impacts.
Also related to the moon, is a highly interesting statement by the russian space agency Roscosmis, released on the 17th of September, announcing a collaboration between the russian and the chinese space agencies, for future moon exploration. A highly interesting development, which might have some political consequences for future moon exploration and future moon bases. Considering that SpaceX Starship plans to land on the moon in 2021, it is really not unlikely that one day we'll have two moon bases clusters, one western power dominated, and one dominated by the eastern powers.
