SpaceX test fires massive Super Heavy booster for Starship for 1st time (video)

제출됨
 
SpaceX fired up the massive booster rocket for its new Starship spacecraft Monday night (July 19) in a short first-of-its-kind test for the company's ambitious new launch system. The towering stainless-steel booster, called Super Heavy, ignited three Raptor engines in a brief "static fire" test on a pad at SpaceX's Starbase facility in southern Texas, near the village of Boca Chica. Booster 3, as this particularly Super Heavy is known, is the latest in a series of prototypes… (www.space.com) 기타...

In light of all the predicted "climate change" doom and gloom, how is it that voluntary, ego-driven, fossil-fuel powered space travel consumption, is exempt from ridicule?

Coal-fired and natural gas powered electric generating plants provide affordable power for tangible amenities enjoyed by the vast majority of the population.

You can disregard the science of climate change if you like but the garbage we are pumping into our atmosphere that is said to cause it can NOT be disregarded. Everyone thinks of our atmosphere as being a HUGE ball of air around the earth. The next time you eat an apple, cut it in half and look at the thickness of the skin around the apple. That's the thickness of the atmosphere in relation to the size of the earth! "Ignore the science at your peril".

Thank you, some science we CAN ignore without peril.

To what end?
None of you climate change cultists, and yes it is a religion, can explain how it is we can instantly transition from fossil fuels to what you people refer to as "sustainable" or "clean" energy.
The entire climate change narrative is political.
You people claim the planet is getting warmer. Oh? So. how do you explain the temperature records set over 100 years ago. Too much horse gas rom all those horse drawn conveyances?
And -please explain the writings in journals from the 14th century describing 'snowless winters'?
The fact is the Earth's climate is in a constant state of flux. Ever changing. 50 years ago, the scientists were predicting an impending ice age. Others were certain beyond a doubt that the planet would be out of petroleum by the turn of the century.
And to prove this climate stuff is political, is the fact that the world's two most blatant polluters(China and India) have been deemed exempt from any and all climate mandates. Gee, I wonder why?.

If the world's atmosphere is as sensitive as the non-applicable (i.e. non scientific) created-for-effect "apple skin" analogy; how could our atmosphere have possibly survived the countless gigantic toxic volcanos that have erupted on the earth over the centuries, not to mention countless out-of-control wildfire?

The world should be concerned with shrinking-brain induced gullibility syndrome.

You just refuse to believe things and then offer made up nonsense as a low-grade excuse for refusing to think critically, and then talk to other people about brain shrinking?

Huh.

"Believe"....And there is the climate change operative. Thanks for admitting that climate change has been reduced to a belief system. A religion.

Blue Origin rocket BE-3 engine developed by Bezos’ company burns liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen."Carbon dioxide isn’t emitted from the Blue Origin rocket that was used for today’s launch," said Eloise Marais, an air pollution researcher at University College London.
SpaceX which reuses rockets and engines has a smaller carbon footprint than rockets that are only once used.

But but but...climate change.....LOL
You cannot present facts to these people.
Yet, they all drive cars, use mass transit, fly on aircraft, use products that have in their creation, petroleum products.....NONE of them are willing to walk the walk.

Did you neglect to finish your thought here?

Seems you got lost in your thought.

Hi Phil:

From I've read, liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen make a great rocket fuel, but hard to handle. If it could be used for the in atmosphere booster, shouldn't be a problem. I am ashamed of my 49 Ford at 13 miles to the gallon and it is harder to find leaded fuel.

Hello, my name is Phil. I'm a science denier who is not too sure what shape the planet is, and I'm here to hijack a news story about rocket development to bang on my high chair about my favorite topic and spread some misinformation on a topic I clearly don't understand.

Plesse provide the example of misinformation....Define 'misinformation'....
I view that term as another left wing created narrative buzz term. It is used as a matter of convenience whenever a leftist is presented with facts that counter their narrative.

When the debate is lost slander becomes the tool of the the loser.

Insults? Yes, this is how those on the political left attempt to quash debate. Guess what? It doesn't work. Deal with it
