NASA's making some big moves to finally get humans back to the moon for the first time in over 50 years. The Artemis program is shaping up with checks written and hardware built! So how does a 21st Century program to the moon compare to that of the 1960's?
In Today's video, we’re going to answer the question, why does NASA think Artemis will be a sustainable program when SLS is sooooo dang expensive AND it’ll take at least two launches to get humans and their lunar landers to the moon.
This CAN’T be more sustainable than Apollo, right? Well, we didn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the costs, so today we’re going to really dive into the total costs, including development, infrastructure and hardware by giving SLS and Orion a full cost audit.
But we’ll even show you how the Apollo program and Artemis mission profiles differ including the specific orbits and rendezvous and everything required to get humans to the surface of the moon and even talk about the upgraded safety considerations and hardware involved.
Once we look at all these details, we can answer the question, 50 years later, is the Artemis program actually an improvement over the Apollo program or is NASA going completely in the wrong direction when returning to the moon?

One of the reasons for extreme costs is because all of the labor involved is union. I’m not against unionized work but the fact is non union vs union is pennies on the dollar cheaper for the same quality. I’ve worked for the federal government for decades I’ve seen this over and over.

Commercial providers have caused NASA to revamp how they operate and may just end up as a purchaser and not be a developer or provider. It would be cheaper and NASA could focus more on missions. Those rocket scientists, assemblers, etc... will be absorbed by the commercial sector and a bunch will take a cushy retirement. Bridenstine did what he had to do because commercial providers had already exposed NASA and Boeing’s secret money flow and he had no choice. Starliner was a major blow to both and really exposed that NASA was being held hostage by Boeing and their opened ended contracts but SpaceX freed NASA when they didn’t want saved. Costs are what they are but to think politicians and the higher ups at NASA weren’t being “compensated” by Boeing has never worked in a position where large amounts of money are at stake based on purchasing contracts.

I agree with your 'rant'. This is where I depart with traditional thinking, despite following the space program since the Mercury missions! Yes, I've been president of the rocket club as a HS student and advisor of several rocket clubs since, as a teacher. I'm convinced that much of NASAs funding is being siphoned off into black projects. Here's a thought: If indeed, NASA was completely straightforward, in trying to find life on Mars for example, why wouldn't they use drills that could dig 3 or more feet into the Martian surface, for example (where they would likely find water ice and protection from UV and solar radiation)? Why wouldn't they have advanced labs onboard their rovers? This is not a 'rant'. These are obvious questions.

Why can’t: Spacex Luna Lander take off and in LEO. One or two of the refuelers bring two rockets connected to fuel tanks attach them to the crew/cargo part of the starship. Then Starship takes it to the moon. Once in orbit of the moon the crew/cargo starship detaches from the Starship and uses the external rockets to land. starship returns to LEO or if it is there the lunar station. there you have a permanent moon base and a truck to bring stuff out from Earth. The external self contained rockets would be like the Dynetics Alpaca! Now you have a TRUCK that can haul stuff back and forth to and from the moon and you are using the spacex moon rockets rather than having them sit on the moon all the time. You have a moon habitat that you don't need an elevator to get in and out of and the strap on rockets can run on hydrogen and oxygen.

In that his response comes in February 2021, I have the advantage of seeing this picture with improved eyesight. Basically, SLS continues to run far beyond budget and the estimates made here are billions less than actual projections. My other big problem is that this basically continues with old programs. We should be looking at a permanent moon base from which we can operate a permanent moon program. All this program gets you is visitation rights for a few astronauts. It is a waste of time.

What about the light reflector pannels? On apollo 11, 14, and 17 there where light reflector pannels left on the moon So if you got the right kind of laser you could point it at the moon and have it come back. Now some common "evedince" you might belive: 1. No crater below the landing site Okay so on the bottom of the landing legs there where sencors that would have folded up when you land, these where 16 Feet! so therefore the engine wouldnt effect the landing site! 2. The flag staying up This is caused by a metal pole. Pretty simple 3. No stars this is caused by the moon surface reflecting light to the sky (think about it like the sky in a big city) 3. The radiation They only spent 6 hours in the radiation and they also did their maneuver in a way that avoided the most lethal parts of the radiation while also saving some metres per secong of delta V (run the numbers it wouldnt have killed them.) 4. the multible shadows This is again caused by reflection of the moon surface reflecting back to the LM 5. Im not sure if you are a general nasa denier or just a moon landing denier but if you are a nasa denier Keep in mind it is entirely possible to get a telescope and see the ISS from your telescope. Keep in mind that there is a serious affect in psycology where once somebody firmly belives in something (wether that be politics, your stuid conspiracy theories ect) it can be nearly impossible to change your mind. Please keep in mind there is lots of evidence (such as the light reflector pannels) that we went to the moon and that there is no evedince supporting your theory.

My thoughts: NASA is the major component of the discretionary portion of the federal budget. That is, a government facing large debt, as we do, and large deficit, as we do, will find in NASA the only way to reduce spending by tens of billions of dollars per year with no political penalty. The greatest danger to NASA is in the first year of a new president, as now, and the first sign of monetary deflation, as now, along with the stirrings of rampant price inflation, as now. Add to this political risk the observation that commercial interests seem to be moving along quite well to creating their own systems of interplanetary travel, and a U.S. government can make a compelling case to end or greatly reduce NASA. For now, Feb 2021, it seems that this government is willing to keep NASA whole for this year. The pressures building against NASA will become apparent after the pandemic ends. A government needing to reconstitute a broken society, as we have become, will have no interest in supporting NASA, even as a symbolic example of American prestige. It was, after all, cisgendered white male Americans (and a few NAZIs) who created the Mercury/Gemini/Apollo story.

I do think the Artemis program is a step forward in the right direction. The disappointment however, is that it isn't as great a step as it should be 50 years on. its already 20 years out of date before its launch. Also, it seems they could have build brand new cutting edge rockets for a fraction of tax payers dollars they ended up spent on this historic restoration of a cathedral to Apollo .

A human mission to the moon is a very important thing. But if you do it like Apollo 11, it's a waste of money. This money could have been used to improve our space skills and not by reinvent the Saturn V rocket. Consider mounting and starting the spaceship in the orbit. If the mission starts and ends there, much of the ship would automatically be reusable. And this new assembly environment could also be reused to go to other destinations or to protect Earth from meteroids ... or more.

I honestly don't care how much it costs. There's massive opportunity costs for *not* going back to space, and they outweigh rockets costing several orders of magnitude greater. The Apollo program was expensive, but we ultimately profited from it financially as well as culturally and scientifically. While getting costs down is a good thing, obviously, I'd rather spend more now to get something ASAP than wait.

I just still cant wrap my head around the fact that nasa is going to throw most of this rocket out after they use it 🤧 I'm insanely passionate about space travel but my tax dollars are being thrown out by these assholes while musk's out re using boosters and has the perfect economics system going
EimajOzear Pirms 21 dienas
Think of it this way; does it makes sense to re-use a rocket (SLS) that takes 6-12 months to build, therefore only being used 1-2 times a year? Building in reusable elements will reduce the payload capacity and increase costs. Yes, these costs would decrease over time - as in the case of the Falcon 9, which can be turned around in 27 days - but if the SLS flies, at best, twice a year, is there any point in recovering the parts? Also, if by "the perfect economics" you mean the cheapest rocket, you might want to look at the Proton M - it is the same price as a Falcon 9 and can launch 22t into LEO; surely if the rocket is cheaper when expendable, this shows reusability isn't necessarily the cheapest option? Maybe it will be proven some day to be dramatically cheaper, but that time isn't now, sadly. The final nail in the coffin; if the Falcon rockets are "the perfect economic system", then why isn't it used for every launch? Are the evil "old space" guys keeping the underdog SpaceX down or does the Falcon series of rockets have some disadvantages such as their inaccurate orbital insertion and reduced payload capacity due to reserving fuel for propulsive landing? Everything in engineering is a trade-off, there is no perfect system. Hope this helps.

While I’d concede that government meddling in ANYTHING is inefficient and rife with greed and corruption; in principle, you are creating jobs and businesses that can go on to do more than just the project that involves space flight. Also new technologies, products, and materials are created as a byproduct of the push to space. That coupled with space travel and research as a unifying activity is all beneficial for society long term. Conversely, a single hand out of cash to the public can be short-sighted and far less beneficial to society. If all members of society used the money wisely, you might have a case, but most are fools with “easy money”. Teach a man to fish vs feed a man a fish principle.

Dump Boeing! They have broken every promise and have been overpaid for every piece of equipment--none of which has flown! Close Boeing down, charge them with misuse of funds and throw a billion dollars at Space X and let them back up their Starship plan with modified Heavy Lift vehicles and manned capsules! Use an adapter to use Artemis landers and the Lunar space station. It will cost Nasa a fraction of the cost and keep the program going. There is no such thing as "cost Overruns" with Space X!!!!! Boeing is a money pit!!!!

I think NASA should've focused on construction in space both for lunar and mars mission, using SpaceX to lift component parts to orbit. But perhaps a much bigger question to answer is why major corporations, including Intel, Boeing, Lockheed etc., have so lost their way that anything you give them to build runs massively over-budget, is invariably bug-ridden, then takes years or (in the case of the F-35) decades to sort out. It is so hard to recognize this is the same country that went to the moon in eight years almost from scratch, and which built breathtaking aircraft like the Lockheed A-12, SR-71, Jumbo Jet and XB70 (Valkyrie) in just a handful of years, again using relatively primitive technologies. As for Intel, a company that consistently proves it's a one-trick pony, they have spend many hundreds of millions of dollar trying to develop software (such as for their now-defunct media processors) and have absolutely ZERO to show for their efforts! I have to assume this is some kind of corporation "dry rot" that is afflicting American industry as a whole (and sparing only a relatively few go-get-it-done and/or newer companies like SpaceX).

I don't like when everyone says "we've already been to the moon, so why go back?" Yeah we went there when everything was kept secret and cameras were garbage. I would love to see it in the next couple years. A live stream to the world from the surface of the moon would break the internet.

Just a point of clarification, Tobias: Though moon video cameras may have been primitive, their (Hasselblad) still cameras were of vey high precision, even by today's standards.

Rocket that takes you to the moon for 2 hours vs rocket that takes you to the moon for months

Wait... what rocket - across the entire history of crewed exploration of space - only gives you 2 hours at the Moon?
