SpaceX's plan to colonize Mars, explained

Elon Musk gave the biggest talk of his life in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he detailed his plans to set up a self-sustaining colony of 1 million people on Mars. He knows the rockets and spaceships he wants to build, but many questions still need to be answered if he wants to pull off such an ambitious feat. The Verge's Loren Grush breaks down some of the challenges with input from Bill Nye (CEO of The Planetary Society) and Will Pomerantz (VP Special Projects, Virgin Galactic).

Rocket Size Comparison 2018 V1

RED SIDE SHOP STORE A rocket is a missile, spacecraft, aircraft or other vehicle that obtains thrust from a rocket engine. Rocket engine exhaust is formed entirely from propellant carried within the rocket before use. Rocket engines work by action and reaction and push rockets forward simply by expelling their exhaust in the opposite direction at high speed, and can therefore work in the vacuum of space. In fact, rockets work more efficiently in space than in an atmosphere. Multistage rockets are capable of attaining escape velocity from Earth and therefore can achieve unlimited maximum altitude. Compared with airbreathing engines, rockets are...

I really appreciate constructive feedback and criticism on what can be improved either visually or in terms of research and content. Just please be fair and polite. VIDEO DESCRIPTION: On February 6, SpaceX launched their new “Falcon Heavy” Rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. In a spectacular and very media-effective stunt they sent a “midnight-cherry-red" Tesla Roadster as test-payload on it’s way into deep space. The rocket has the ability to put more than 140,000 pounds of cargo into the lower earth orbit, much more than...

Flaming and noisy Antonov An-12 startup (and smoky takeoff!)

Those old turboprop engines drown out all other sounds for hundreds of metres! UR-CCP of AeroVis Airlines was built in 1962, and is just about the oldest of its type still flying around Europe. UR-CEZ (of CAVOK?) is only a few years younger. Here on cargo duties at BHX.

Horizons mission - Soyuz: launch to orbit

This unique video shows a full launch of the Soyuz MS-09: from liftoff to orbit. Watch the launch from inside the crew capsule with first-ever shots from outside the spacecraft recorded by cameras fixed to the exterior of the Soyuz. The intense launch lasts less than ten minutes whereby the Soyuz spacecraft is propelled 1640 km and gains 210 km altitude. Every second for nine minutes, the spacecraft accelerates 50 km/h on average as the rocket’s boosters burn their fuel and are discarded. See the astronaut’s reactions and what the spacecraft looks like as the main steps are carried out to get...

Mars Rover Mystery Continues | Space News

JOIN US for the EU2016 Conference: Elegant Simplicity//June 17-19// How is the Mars rover Opportunity still alive? In 2004 the rovers Spirit and Opportunity touched down on the Red Planet and began journeys that were each expected to last about 90 days. Both rovers lived exponentially longer than expected, and in fact, Opportunity is still going strong in 2016. Could electrostatic cleanings via the electrified Martian wind be responsible for the rovers' extraordinary long-livedness? Recent news article celebrating Opportunity's 12-year anniversary: Thunderbolts Picture of the Day on the electrified nature of the Martian dust devils: SUPPORT US ON PATREON AND WATCH...

Elon Musk on how Falcon Heavy will change space travel

What Has The Curiosity Rover Discovered? A Collaboration With Joe Scott

See Joe's video here: Subscribe to Joe's Channel! All Hail Curiosity! Consider the fact that right now, there’s an SUV-sized rover crawling around the surface of Mars, zapping rocks with its laser, scooping and sampling material, and generally giving us the best view we’ve ever seen from the surface of the Red Planet. NASA’s Curiosity Rover has been on the surface of Mars since 2012, following the story of water. When did it first show up on Mars, and was it there long enough to support the biology of life? In its 5 years and counting of exploration, Curiosity has pushed our understanding of the...

What SpaceX & Falcon 9 Can't Do Better Than Alternatives

SpaceX and Falcon 9 have made huge changes to the launch market, they've become the best vendor for many commercial payloads through a combination of price and performance. However, it's important to understand the limits of the hardware so I wanted to discuss where the Falcon 9 comes up short compared to their competition at the ULA. (not hating on SpaceX or ULA, just trying to put the numbers out there and stop people saying dumb things)
