There is no word “impossible” in Elon Musk’s vocabulary.
If you are going to tell him something that is not possible it had “better be limited by a law of physics or you are going to end up looking stupid.”
Indeed, when he started SpaceX, everyone said: “Oh, you are going to fail.”
But now, SpaceX is the best private rocket company in the world now.
Do not stop there, he is working tirelessly on his Starship rocket, a massive next-generation rocket that Elon Musk hopes will soon carry humans to the moon and eventually to Mars.
More incredible, he has recently even hinted at its jaw-dropping successor, a much bigger and better rocket called Starship 2.0.
Let’s find out in today’s episode of SpaceX Fans:
The world has never seen a vehicle like a Starship before. If successful, the massive spacecraft would open up new possibilities for humans not before available. This is because Starship could realize the long-desired goal of rapid, low-cost reuse of a launch system.
Consider the status quo. The large Space Launch System rocket under development by NASA will be able to launch 95 metric tons into low Earth orbit. NASA and its contractors, led by Boeing, will be able to build one a year.
In terms of lift capacity, the vehicles are similar. Starship and Super Heavy should be able to put about 100 tons into low Earth orbit. However, SpaceX is already capable of building one Starship a month, and the plan is to reuse each booster and spacecraft dozens of times. Imagine the kind of space program NASA could have with the capacity to launch 100 tons into orbit every two weeks—instead of a single annual mission—for $2 billion a year.
Seriously, pause a moment and really think about that.
Unfortunately, there is still some serious problem with the current Starship.
Yeah, Elon Musk’s biggest rival, Jeff Bezos wasn’t wrong in talking about Musk must take 8 Launches to refuel Starship at the Artemis contract. Else, there won’t be enough fuel to get there!
Let’s imagine, a crew flight to Mars would become a hundred times more complicated.
In addition, Starship itself must also become a fortress to live in for a long time before we complete all the facilities to serve the lives of a hundred volunteers on Mars first.
To build a self-sustaining colony on Mars, we cannot do manual labor like the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids, we will destroy ourselves in the harsh weather of Mars.
For example, Mars requires 600-tonne payloads that are difficult to separate into 150-tonne chunks.
Iron ore excavators and steel mills with large cauldrons and rolling mills will be required if the colony is to become self-sufficient in the long run. These are the things that are difficult to divide into smaller loads.
This also requires Starship could launch factories and advanced production systems anywhere.
The 9-meter payload bay diameter begins to pose a challenge for some of the items that the Mars colony may require in the future.
