There have been many spaceships over the years but the best one made so far has to be SpaceX’s Starship. Why is it so great, however?

Starship Overview
It all started back in October of 2001. Elon Musk went to Russia and wanted to buy old decommissioned missiles in the hopes of making them into rockets for going to Mars someday. This was before Musk’s SpaceX existed and had achieved all its successes it has today so Musk simply looked crazy to Russia. They turned him down and he instead founded SpaceX and began building rockets for a fraction of the price. After a number of prototypes and designs, the company began testing Starship prototypes in January of 2020. The first four of these tests resulted in explosions but each one achieved new milestones in the spacecraft’s development. Now SpaceX is scheduled to work towards conducting an orbital Starship flight by July of this year. Starship is launched into orbit by a massive rocket called the Superheavy--more on that later--and when combined, this two-stage rocket will measure 120 meters in height and will be the world’s most powerful launch vehicle ever developed, period.

The Construction of Starship
One huge element of Starship is that it uses stainless steel in its rockets instead of aluminum. A big question that gets raised is why SpaceX chose to use stainless steel. Aluminum is both lighter and cheaper to send to space, but one big element is assisted by stainless steel. That thing is temperature tolerance.

Starship wants to be an interplanetary vehicle and this means it’ll need to be able to stand freezing and hot temperates when it ascends and descends into planetary atmospheres multiple times. As it turns out, this is where stainless steel shines, as it has a particularly good tolerance to temperature varieties that many other materials can’t compete with. This temperature tolerance is the key to going to Mars and wouldn’t be achievable with aluminum.

When Starship enters Mars’ incredibly thin atmosphere, it will do so in such a way that the amount of drag is increased to slow the vehicle down as it falls. With drag comes heat and SpaceX aims to cool Starship’s descent with a liquid methane pump underneath the Starship’s surface, which will essentially fight back against the heat similar to how humans sweat hot temperatures. This stainless steel and the technology paired with it is just astonishing and a major aspect of the construction that illustrates why Starship is so incredible. Things that could only be dreamed of a couple of decades ago now are in actual operation and have been tested to confirm they function properly!

Another amazing aspect of Starship is how the rockets are reusable. A major reason rockets can be so expensive is their lack of reusability. For decades rockets were something that was used once to launch ships into space. SpaceX set out with a focus on reusability which creates affordability. If a rocket can be reused multiple times it becomes a great deal more cost-effective. The raptor rockets are all reusable and this allows Superheavy and Starship to be used as many times as could be needed, saving a lot of money and being more environmentally friendly. These reusable ships don’t have much of a downtime either. It is possible for a Starship to launch, the reusable superheavy to return to Earth, and then after about an hour of getting it prepped and refueled it will be ready to yet again take another Starship into orbit!

Inside Starship
As for what exactly is inside Starship that makes it well-designed, the part of Starship that can fit humans sits atop that rocket known as Superheavy. The starship body has at its back six Raptor engines--a technology developed by SpaceX. Their combustion happens in differing stages, and the engine's design reduces the amount of propellant that's wasted. The middle of Starship has propellant tanks that feed liquid methane (CH4) and liquid oxygen (O2) to the Raptors. The very front of Starship AKA the upper stage, has the payload compartment. This is where many people or a large amount of cargo can be put.

Below the main body of Starship is the Superheavy we mentioned. It lives up to its name with around 28 Raptor engines. It is the most powerful rocket ever and uses the same technology to propel itself into space.

Would save a lot of money in the long term if we would just build a space station where we could build ships directly in space. Needed materials we could get from mining asteroids with Space Drones. Maybe over the decades a space station network spread over our solar system with automatic weapon systems to protect them from all the stuff that flies around out there. Starting now within 30-40 years we would have build a solid network IF the whole world would work together and even have a defense system for our solar system to eradicate dangerous asteroids before they can become dangerous for our planet. And especially for science that would open a lot of new doors.

@Tim Bucks there is no lift design capable of giving a several thousand tons rocket any kind speed worth wasting effort on that kind of system. Rockets need to reach the speed of 8000 meters per second to stay in orbit. Quick google search says the fastest elevator in the world moves at 20 meters per second. I don't know the weight of the cabin, so I'm going to be very generous and say it's 10 tons. Rockets weigh thousands of tons. I don't want to do further math, but I think it's quite obvious from here that you would need a tremendously huge structure that has to be able to produce tremendous forces to be able to propel a rocket to a fraction of it's final speed. It's just not viable. The operational costs alone of a facility that large would be ridiculous.

i've been in TSLA for 6 years..happy i did. I've ordered the S dual motor fsd while the tri motor fsd cybertruck gets here. i have lots of solar & backup battery to charge them both at home.. i also love SpaceX. we went to see it live last year from California to Texas Boca Chica. I was born in Raymondville btw.
Speaking of Mars, I think it would make sense to try capturing asteroids & dropping them onto Martian surface (at a lowest possible speed).. it would take a lot of asteroids, but over time planets density would start to increase.. also if dropped extremely precisely, maybe Mars's orbit could be lowered a little bit closer to the Sun.. At the same time, amongst rocky and metalic asteroids, a large number of water-ice asteroids should also be dropped.. then as the planet would still be relatively warm from innitial bombardment, a lot of water would turn into steam, and mixed with gasses from other asteroids atmosphere would become thicker and perhaps even breatheable, even if just for a short while, that is untill planet cools down.. Obviouslly the main obstacle is the ammount of spacecraft needed for such an endevour, not to mention that chemical rocket tech wouldn't work.. you'd need a continuos thrust, so probably something like an Ion Engine would theoretically be the only way to push massive asteroids on a long journey to Mars.. these Ion Engines would have to be VERY powerfull and large, perhaps conected to dedicate nuclear reactor to provide all the electricity it would need.. :-) Obviouslly something like that is just a day-dream.. but it would be nice if Mars would have 0.8-0.9g of Earth's gravity, be 2/3 closer to Earth then now, have temperetarures around -40C to +40C, have a denser atmosphere, maybe even have liquid water (which would allow mass-planting of various plants and algae that produce oxygen). Well, maybe in 100 years :-) Then again, if we'd have necessary tech, maybe it would be easier to terraform Venus

Why do you think it's a day dream? Russian "Zeus" project is already in development. It'll be a space hauler powered by a small nuclear reactor with an ion purpulsion unit attached to it. The problem of using nuclear power in space has now been sold. The "Zeus" project is already in prototype stage.

They really need to do a trial run at the whole mars thing here on earth first, if they want to be sure it can work. Launch a Mars mission exactly the way Musk intended. Star ship will orbit earth for 1 month and land in a remote area with extreme conditions, perhaps Antarctica. Then they will try to construct a human colony there in the same way they would on mars, wearing self contained space suits, creating their own oxygen etc. Resupply missions would follow but they will have to wait 4 - 6 months in between. By doing it this way, they will learn a lot about what could go wrong while minimizing the risks. If they can't do it here first, they certainly can't do it on Mars.

Even if they skipped the entire space part and try to set up a self sustaining colony as though they were on Mars. Just to see if they could do it and how long they could keep it running.

Trial runs for colony infrastructure would be neat but they physically can't trial the landing. The hardest part of landing on Mars is the atmospheric density with moderate gravity. Just heavy enough to drag things down and just dense enough to burn them up but not dense enough to slow things down without tricky air breaking maneuvers (the bellyflop being the example for this mission). The only way to test it is to send unmanned ships there and try to land them.

The six month missions on the ISS were basically trial runs for going to Mars. The data gathered during these missions would be applicable to the actual trip, other than the specifics of flying a Starship to Mars. Remember, an uncrewed Starship landing on Mars is planned first.

Many parts of this video refer to outdated starship designs: They will not use sweaty steel any more, they will use PICA heat tiles. Starship is not 118m tall, it's 120 (a simple search would have got that one) As I gave up after 2:30, I have not listed any factual errors from the remaining 70% of the video

A standing structure is risky. Its better to have ground popping or mechanisms emerging from the ground/landing pad floor ,springing up and around like flaps to hold Super heavy. The Iris mechanism or Bear trap mechanism removes the support pillar ,providing a higher absence of potential hazards.

Just normal starship what any intelligent people would have made if they had chance to develop it. It is still not perfect however. Future ships will have something similar to jet engines ( likely aerospikes ) at 1-st stage witch will take other stages up to edge of atmosphere. And yes by some reason people like to overhype things - Elon will have his wins and losses. Should any mission with people on-board fail which can happen real easily, there will be no shortage of people who will try to stop him at any cost.

itchyvet 3 місяці тому
Why would Russia sweat about any of this ???? They have far more down to earth priorities then playing with fire needlessly. Remember, until something is devised to protect humans from space radiation, once they leave earth's magnetic field, said radiation will KILL them. So what's the point of building any such space vehicle when the occupants get fried and are dead on arrival ? First we need to build a protection system to protect from this radiation, then build a space ship in ORBIT, big enough to house a colony with everything it needs to survive and establish a base on another planet or rock. This work these guys are doing, can only be used as a supply vehicle to such a project. Not a Mars bound vehicle.

@Mitchell Scripter Yeah, its just nice to see the old contractors falling behind since they were not interested in developing new tech, only wasting money. Currently we have SLS(massive waste of funds that may fly once) and ULA is developing a new rocket but its not reusable. Europe is developing a new rocket but its also not going to be reusable. There is blue origin, but while they started before spacex, they have yet to really do anything. they have a hopper on par with spacex from 10 years ago and are developing a reusable rocket with capacity between falcon 9 and starship. though like spacex they did develop their own engine and are refining it, though technically, i guess spacex is on their second new engine. its just interesting to see nobody seems to be in a rush except spacex.

@42NORRIS nasa made a moon rocket 9 years after they just figured out how to put a person into space. and spacex has proved before that their rapid testing and development work extremely well. keep in mind starship has been in testing for 2 years and is already capable of suborbital flight and landing. and by the looks of it we are going to see starship in orbit by the end of the year. lets say it takes 1 year after first orbital flight of starship to perfect it. that gives 7 years of further improvements and rapid testing to get a functional mars capable rocket. to me its common sense that starship will reach mars by 2030. SLS is yet to even have a test launch let alone get into space yet, does that mean getting back to the moon by 2024 is ridiculous? of course not. now thats not to say spacex is guaranteed to be on mars by 2030, but there is a very high chance there is.

I really believe that the intelligent people that work for him cringe when he makes some of his statements and announced timelines. My understanding, it is difficult to contradict him for fear of retribution, (lose of job). At the end of the day, I trust the engineers that work for him more than Musk himself. To me, Musk is a showman. Just my opinion based on what he says and then applying logic and realism to come to the conclusion that it can't happen when he says it will.

That's why Earth-to-Earth trips will start and end in the middle of rivers, somewhere in the sea or an ocean. Deep space travel will most likely start with specialized launch centers on land.

You forgot to mention that steel is made by combining iron and carbon. And there is plenty of iron on Mars. So spare parts will be easy to make on Mars.

@calum As I said the cost per ton is what matters. Earth's gravity is so bad that if it was 10% higher, going to space would be impossible. The reason Starship has limited capacity is because it is not a dedicated specialized vehicle but all purpose. So it is like combining a container, a bus and a semi. As reusability goes to 100% and refitting time gets shorter it will be as impossible as transporting equipment via airplane.

@calum What is the difference of transporting using planes and ships? Cost. A ton is still a ton. If you fly your cargo it is way more expensive than using a ship. The difference is cost per ton. Ships use scale economy to lower costs. Starship is big because that would lower cost per ton. Steel is way heavier than aluminium so why weight is not a problem for Starship? The answer is cost.

@A Quarius the mass is well and truly the problem. even if you had unlimited amounts of cash a ton still weighs a ton.

@calum The problem is not to bring stuff to Mars. The problem is not the mass but the cost. With discardable rockets make each kg to cost $10k to $14k to LEO. Discardable sandals would also be unaffordable.

The landing legs will be what we call "auto Leveling" This is where the legs will level out so if they are on a slope on side of the legs will extend more to keep the craft stable.

If we are to base greatness off concepts and one test, then there is no comparison that the space shuttle is the greatest based on concept. Lets see a few successful tests and a real successful test is not having a fire at the end or legs that are damaged. Lets get a few into orbit and return safely. Once we do that, then we can say what the best in real function is.

It'll go through a crapton of iterations in the future. There might be even new versions of it, with light sails, cryogenic human storage, quantum computing and internet, and nuclear propulsion (nuclear reactor). For now though we need at least to get to other planets, then we can try moving to the stars. We don't know much about its future design, because that kind of information isn't public, but my take is on improving propulsion (most likely nuclear) and providing quantum internet to get communications instant (which is incredibly useful).

@pigslefats As Bezos put it? The guy developed 2-day shipping, that's it. We have people on submarines that stay underwater for over 6 months at a time. There are permanent bases in Antartica. The ISS has been orbiting the Earth for decades. All those environments are not conducive to human existence. You are saying because it hasn't happened that it can't. That's only part of what you're saying. You are a leftist and have therefore been trained to say that anything Elon Musk is bad. You really don't know why but that's what you're told.

Oh Musk will get a human to Mars. He has no intention of building a colony. People are ignoring the elephant in the room. They think 'we are going to Mars' And... Mars is totally unsuitable to human existence. Our bodies are a product of living on Earth for potentially hundreds of thousands of years. Just Mars gravity will result in all kinds of physical ailments. Never mind radiation sickness. Never mind that they will be living in smelly little capsules for years. If people can't hack COVID restrictions how do you think they will handle Mars? As Bezos put it-Living atop Everest will be paradise compared to Mars. It's amazing how many people have bought into the hype of Musk-the saviour of mankind!

Well, we are still in the early testing days with Starship. There are significant hurdles to still overcome. Don't get me wrong, Starship is an amazing craft, but it is in the early test phases right now. And Musk has a history of overly ambitious targets. That is not a bad thing as it pushes SpaceX to excel, but it also doesn't mean that they will definitely make those targets either. Will Starship get near Musk's target of multiple daily flights? Who knows, but getting the turn around time down to a week would be a huge jump in reusability. The fastest Falcon 9 turn around is 27 days so far. Will Starship get down to $2M per launch? Who knows, but getting down to the same $50M advertised price for a reused Falcon 9 B5 would be a huge jump in cost reduction to space. Will SN20 launch to orbit in July atop BN3? Possibly not, as July 31st 2021 is only 84 days away from today (May 9th) and they are still building the Integration Tower and launch table for the orbital launch pad in Boca Chica. Most space watchers think that they will make a Starship orbital attempt by the end of the year and maybe before SLS on Nov 4th 2021. Musk has said that he expects the first few returns from orbit for a Starship to not be successful. As for Starship RUDs, NASA, the experts, like the robust test program. From the HLS Option A Source Selection Statement. "Finally, within Technical Area of Focus 7, Approach to Early Systems Demonstrations, I agree with the SEP’s assignment of a significant strength for SpaceX’s robust early system demonstration ground and flight system campaign, which focuses on the highest risk aspects of its proposed architecture. This will allow SpaceX to isolate and address performance and operational issues early in its development cycle, which will meaningfully inform the maturation of its capability and increase overall confidence in its performance abilities." www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/option-a-source-selection-statement-final.pdf Per the Statement above, SpaceX's Lunar Starship won the Option A contract on merit AND price.

Starship Landing All planes on earth land horizontally on TRIPODS, regardless of length of fuselage or weight from super light piper cubs to jumbo jets to military carrier planes that transport heavy battle tanks to HARRIER jets and F35 fighter planes that do vertical take off and landing. Why do planes land HORIZONTALLY on TRIPODS? It's the safest regardless of how smooth or bumpy the landing may be. AND, consider how tall the Starship is, AND how top heavy with its payload of 100 metric tons - where is the center of gravity? A little tilt, like the lunar lander of Apollo 15 in 1971 - the Starship could topple down. WHAT GUARANTEE have you people that the landing site will be truly flat and sturdy and strong enough to support the FULL WEIGHT of Starship PLUS PAYLOAD. AND YOU'LL BE LANDING A THOUSAND STARSHIPS ON MARS VERTICALLY?!? HOW SURE ARE YOU THAT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WON'T TILT. SOFT SOIL OR BLOWING WIND ON A SHIP WITH A LITTLE TILT COULD FALL DOWN.

The starships themselves also have alot of cargo mid to rear bound. Where as a large portion of the nose is just air. Space for people to occupy. The starship faces the same reasoning as the super heavies.
Osprey Au
Osprey Au 7 місяців тому
Actually when the Super Heavies land. They're almost empty on fuel. That means the only weight outside of structural is their engines. Making them rather bottom heavy tubes. The aerodynamic draw backs of imposing landing gear on the side of the pod, and the used space doing so, heavily outweighs the implications of using a few extra lines of code, and the objects cog.
