The Twisted Genius

I found an excellent video put out by SpaceX that lays out the NASA/SpaceX programs dealing with the ISS, returning to the Moon and establishing a Mars base. How everything fits together in a timeline is well laid out. Obviously the Starship figures prominently in the video. It answered a lot of questions for me.

One strange thing about the video is the narrator. He's an odd dude who looks like a humanoid species from Star Trek. Very strange, but oddly appropriate for a SpaceX video.



Dropping in several links on SpaceX/Starlink issues from an expat blogger in rural New Zealand; he is interested in Starlink out of hopes for better internet, and also interested in another of Musk's projects, his battery banks, due to problems with dependability of electrical power over the grid).

First, a post on latency issues that Starlink hopes to solve (click the orange type for hyperlinks):


Second, a post on Tesla plans to build off-shore, floating launch platforms for their nest generation of bigger rockets. Am extension of their current off-shore landing platforms, or thinking ahead to a time when dependence on land-based launching would be risky if a civil war kicks off? Hmm...


Third, one possible implication of the new Starlink-enabled internet, and freedom of access from any point:
