SpaceX founder Elon Musk said that he believes his company’s Starship spacecraft could return humans to the surface of the moon just a few years from now. ’I think we could land on the moon in less than two years’, said Musk in an interview.
as Woody Harrelson once put it.
"It's Nut up or Shut up time."
I was promised catgirls
it isn't a starship then is it? Unless Elon is hiding a warp drive in there.
Then do it.
Stories like these are starting to remind me of Robert Heinlein's whole colonization of the moon story arc.
.... For the first time
habitual liar says lie
right after we give a third of our bugdet to Israel for no reason
huh. so if it launches now it'll land in 2021?
believe when I see it
Elon musk is really starting to piss me off with these lies. This fucker wants to microchip you and your kids and fuck with your brain, legitimately.
don't believe it 'til I see it, Musk!
Elon always promises to deliver way before he can, and when he finally produces, it's small volume and takes years to work out the bugs. His space X program is trying the old USSR strategy of combining several smaller rockets instead of engineering a large one, and the inability of the USSR'S economy and it's non meritocratic system of producing professionals meant that due to both engineering hurdles and cost, producing a Saturn rocket was non optional; The limitations of what the market can sustain in terms of shipping things out of atmosphere, means the cost constraints that prevent building a Saturn equivalent, have Musk trapped in the same multi rocket trap the Soviets had. Rockets are simultaneously stupidly simple in theory, and unbelievably complex in execution, which is why strapping several rockets together and getting them to work in tandem absolutely perfectly, is so difficult to actually pull off.
We've heard all that before...
Only if you give me 100 million dollars
Elon will be first? Will they even allow it?
let's get this going
yeah but Elan is it one to stay true to deadlines
Private sector accomplishing things faster and more efficiently than beurocratic governments? Say it ain't so!
Can't wait to be the first generation of people to have actually landed a human on the moon.
