    Utter fantasy, you will know this one day, SpaceX is a scam, a squillion dollar one who, like NASA; have done precisely FA in space. We have nothing up 'there' and never will, its not possible. Go ahead and rage, its cold hard truth and every human on earth will know it in the end. Check it out or be duped fools - your freedom of choice. Have a great day all.

    0:45 ~ There were not "40 formulations" or "57 Formulations". It was #biblical {needs citations, would need to locate the times i found them} #YorkRite metaphor of lose your head=#40. ~ Spray #WD40 on airplane bolts during servicing bare threads and nuts; #PBLaster is a better penetrant or #capillarylube (#turgor air pressure helps), and the #gremlins of vibration would cause objects to fall from the sky. ~ if not done on the ground, happened via thread lube, the reason someone invented #ThreadLock and possible clue why their color is blue, to fight YorkRite or BlueWhite UGLE #roundhead mystery #WaterOfLife is bleeding or pressure releasing the blood of not our #clans (they intend to kill the letter K #klans, because that DNA is listed as enemy of England, and the Vikings never used Fire Funerals). ~ I personally like Red as the color of #ThreadLock, halt accidents and machine failures, rust is an enemy, yet you do want #galvanic or #ionic bonding (not #oxidants, #oxidative) or machine force mechanical #torquebinding.

    On Mars there's no chance of that Methane exploding I'm guessing since there's no O2 anywhere. But this rocket will make an entry on earth too when it returns right? Is the Methane coolant safe to use when entering Earth's atmosphere?

    in the future you could launch a 3 printer orbitor in order print space craft modules and assemble them in space and use robots to the assemble the space craft design in orbit with this 3 printer orbiter it would also be possible to print circuit board with this orbiters imay be possible to print electronic components in solid blocks you need to experiment with 3d printing in 0 gravity before you do that some one take this idea. this method would save costs it would make possible to up load designs and make prototypes in orbit , whole engines and drives could be created in ordit this would the first steps to a space dock and saver build cost and materials could be delivered by drones this system would be fully automated

    The one constant I keep hearing is COST, this is a hurdle that we must clear if we’re ever going to truly advance technologically. When it comes to scientific advancement, medical advancement, scholastic advancement, etc. we’re going to have to find a way for cost to be a non issue. Just imagine how much more advanced the human species could be if we didn’t waste time, money, and resources on killing each other, I’d say that we’d probably have humans landed on Mars already. I understand that it’s a easy thing to imagine but a difficult thing to achieve but it must be done because our existence moving forward depends on it.

    I know I may get a lot of criticism by saying this ... Do we really have a need to go to Mars ...? I mean ...the amount of time energy and money that we spend... is this all just for curiosity...?? Or we all have come to a conclusion that Earth is gonna be inhabitable very soon...and so we all are moving to Mars... If yes... Then why not put this effort in saving our beautiful blue planet ... You seriously think going to Mars is gonna be some great achievement by us.. well it'll be for sure if we go there to do some research... But going there with the intention to dwell in ... is just really not wise...we haven't even discovered our oceans yet... And here we plan to go to a dusty planet where there is no oxygen , no life , nothing called nature ... Just a big red mountaneous planet ... And we still are gonna be proud at the cost of everything that we sacrifice ... again heading towards our own extinction... And if you really wanna know what happens when some of the few remain... Let's say after an apocalypse or a nuclear War.... Watch THE TV SERIES "THE 100" .... You'll get a clear idea what you need to pay for just to survive...!!

    It sucks in the metal fatigue department, though. That's why aluminum airframes have strict "flight hours" limit, until they must be scrapped.

    FYI that aluminum CNC'd away IS NOT wasted. It's collected, melted down, and reused to make new aluminum billets. At least it is in any other business besides SpaceX. I assume they do the same. No one would just "waste" that much aluminum and just throw it away, actually wasting it.
