I have all the graphics from this video up on my website if you want to digest them more! - everydayastronaut.com/?p=9398&preview=true
We’re at a really exciting time where the number of crewed vehicles going to the international space station will go from just one to three!. The Soyuz’s 8 year monopoly for getting humans to the ISS is coming to an end.
So today we’re going to take a deep dive on the two new spaceships that will be responsible for taking humans to and from the International Space Station from the United States. We’ll compare the Boeing Starliner riding an Atlas V rocket to SpaceX’s Crew Dragon on their Falcon 9 Rocket.
And to see how we’ve progressed in the world of human spaceflight, we’ll also compare all these systems along side Russia’s Soyuz capsule and the United State’s retired Space Shuttle in a side by side comparison.
We’ll look at the designs, the rockets they’ll ride, dimensions, cost, safety considerations, and any other unique features that each vehicle offers.
Considering I’ve been up close and personal with SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Capsule, and Boeing’s Starliner, I’ve got some good insight on some of these vehicles.

I like the crew dragon. It looks and flies like a 21st century space craft. The Strainer on the other hand already looks dated. And they came up with this for $4.8 million? That's just my opinion. However, competition is good to bring down prices and keep everyone innovating.

How do they compare? One is a tangible, working, fact of reality and hard work and the product of someone putting their own money on the line. The other is a museum mock-up, a Peter Pan fiction created to fleece the taxpayers and make senators and Boeing rich. One has been to space and done the job it was created and hired to do; a shining example of true capitalism. The other is a farce, a piece of junk that is a shining example of plutocracy and corruption. How do they compare? Not favorably.

Technically, the Space Shuttle could carry 11 astronauts on descent. This would have been the case for an STS-3xx or STS-400 mission to rescue the crew of a damaged shuttle.

As is shown by the fact that Starliner hasn't flown since the last test flight well over a year ago (unless I somehow missed it), and Dragon has already carried out one successful non-test crewed mission (unless I missed a second one).

PLEASE ASK ELON RE AVRO ARROW: Gary Margolus The concurrent development of the plane and how to manufacture it (ie: no hand built prototypes) reminds you, wait does me, on how Soon Musk operates creating his spacecraft and vehicles today,maybe Mr Musk could be asked if he took some inspiration from AVRO and the design a/ development of the Arrow? Second, at worst, the Arrow has been described as average with planes of the day. Well, that was the first prototype. Ask Mr Musk if his first Merlin or raptor engine didn't evolve in specification as Judy were optimised over time? That's a luxury the Arrow was not given, and I say, what if it was optimized, then compared to aircraft then all the way supply until now? 1 second ago 1 second ago

don know rn. But should be easy to find. F9 flown 100 times. Let's assume halfnof it is for state (and half is commercial/internal starlink). State customer usually get price around 100 MUSD per flight. So it is roughly 10 GUSD. But they also got some money for development, so let's double it. I guess 20 bilions of USD seems like realistic estimate P.S. Don't count any money Tesla got, since i don't know and it is on stock market

Why not use falcon heavy to launch rovers
Adam Řežábek
Adam Řežábek Pirms Mēneša
Do you mean to Mars? There are 2 reasons: 1)it is not tested enough. Mars rover is super expansive, so buying Delta IV heavy insted of Falcon Heavy is no big difference, but Delta I. heavy has flown more times 2) capability. Falcon Heavy has upper stage from rocket literally 3 times smaller (f9), so it has low capability to high orbit/other planets. Falcon heavy is kinq when it came to putting huge payload to LEO, but on Geostacionary orbit, delta iv heavy is more capable.

The dragon is definitely the best. Not only is it significantly cheaper to launch, considering that the Falcon 9 is half-reusable, but also its more proven, as when Im writing this, it has launched a total of 6 people, (Demo-2 and Crew-1). I might change my mind once the Atlas finally launches, but I really dont think so.

This looks like an easily answered question. How will SpaceX and Boeing get to the ISS. Simple SpaceX by using their flight tested Dragon Space Ship. Boeing won’t get to the ISS, at least for the foreseeable future. Star Liner is over priced and Boeing lacked motivation to get the job done. While they try to get old tech to work SpaceX is developing Starship.

Will the cargo dragon 2 missions ever do a RTLS landing or nor?
Jacob LF
Jacob LF Pirms 3 Mēnešiem
The Cargo Dragon2 can't RTLS because it doesn't have SuperDraco landing rocket motors. Because there's no crew, they don't need them and have saved the weight and space for more cargo. It's possible that with a mostly empty CD2 the Falcon9 1st stage booster could RTLS.

Why don’t spacecraft slow down more before re-entry thus reducing the excessive heat and risk of overheating/ burning up on re- entry.?
Max Pirms 3 Mēnešiem
You would have to carry more fuel because the fuel u have is used for deorbiting. More fuel means more weight. Additionally slowing down via the atmosphere is way more efficient.

I have looked at a lot of videos about colonizing the moon & Mars. And I haven't found any with my same ideas. I think we should set up a moon colony on earth. We should have inflatable domes, which we cover with 3D printers with simulated moon mortar. The domes should be connected to each other by inflatable tunnels covered with simulated moon mortar. There should be living quarters, hydroponic green houses, gardens with garden soil for recreational gardening, a 5 acre pasture with one inch of garden soil and one inch of grass turf, a park with artificial turf and with small sections of real grass turf, and maybe even a very small zoo. All the domes will have plastic floors so no water is lost. Condensation forming on the ceilings will be drained into the water supply. All the domes will be blown up with compressed air from earth and will have a refresh system, which will refresh the air and maintain the air pressure. Humidity, Temperature will be maintained by humidifiers, heaters, fans and coolers. Light will be provided by multi-color LEDs, mostly white. Power will be supplied at first by solar power, and later by nuclear or fusion power. All water will be re-cycled, almost zero loss of water. There will be a bull, a cow, two sheep, and two goats, two chickens, two turkeys, two fish, and two rabbits. There will also be pets, two dogs, two cats, two bunnies, etc. (and maybe a small zoo) All of this will be set up by astronauts and robots before the colonist arrive. The first colonist will be 5 fathers and 5 mothers, and 90 babies. The parents will be good parents, gardeners, farmers, zoo keepers, teachers, etc.. During the first two years an exact duplicate facility will be built on the moon. When the babies are two years old, they will move to the moon and live on the moon. Or if it is proven that they will be too young to travel to the moon than the facility on earth will be added to, to accommodate 10 more parents and 90 more babies. The two year olds would move into the new addition. Every two years the facility will be either added to, or 100 people will move to the moon. This plan will allow the kids to grow up in the isolation of the colony, and will make it easier for them to live in the isolation of the colony on the moon. And will allow them to grow up on the moon and be better able to adjust to the lower gravity on the moon, although some artificial gravity maybe eventually provided. This artificial gravity will especially be good for the parents. The kids will have everything in the facility to keep them occupied and entertained. Also they could have some books, movies, games, etc., especially adapted for them, being careful not to give them anything that would make them feel isolated. After 20 years there could be 2000 people living on the moon, most of whom grew up on the moon. This program could be speeded up so in 20 years there could be 4000, 6000, or 8000 people living on the moon. This program could be simultaneously done to colonize Mars so we could have 2000 people on the Moon and Mars at the same time. For the moon we could send supplies every month, but for Mars we could only send supplies every 26 months. So I suggest we send 10, 20, or 30 rockets to Mars every 26 months all at the same time. We could have several refueling stations along the way to mars and orbiting mars so rockets could refuel along the way to mars and right before landing on mars so the empty rocket would have enough fuel to take off again, refuel in space and return to Earth. Eventually the colonist could grow trees, bamboo, and other plants for raw materials that could be used for making things. Eventually the moon and Mars could export minerals or small expensive items that were assembled on the moon or Mars, like jewelry, iphones, iwatches, etc. Or grown on the moon like caviar, marijuana, etc. What do you think ? :-)
