SpaceX Starship Presentation 6PM PST Thursday

In 2022, SpaceX has been launching once per week. This is the rate of launch that SpaceX is targeting for 2022 and would mean 50+ launches.

SpaceX has announced a Starship presentation tomorrow at 6 PM PST / 8PM Texas time.

The Starship and Super Heavy were stacked before but are currently not stacked. There is live video feeds monitoring Boca Chica. the Starship will be stacked on top top of the booster for the presentation tomorrow.

SpaceX is making a second Starbase launch facility.

SpaceX should be starting or has started Raptor 2 engine production at the new McGregor factory. The plan is to produce 1000 Raptor 2 engines each year.

SpaceX lost 40 Starlink satellites due to a geomagnetic solar storm. This storm increased the drag in the atmosphere which caused the satellites to fail to reach the proper orbit.

  1. I did not know that private companies were needing a power champion in the gov to do legitimate things. Except in Socialist States such as ours, with Socialist in charge, as we always seem to have. Now that you agree that Musk was planning on being able to "ask permission later", and get it, we can see why he did not apply for the correct permit. Perhaps if he finds something the *current* guy likes, like power transmission? I know, the current guy thinks "power transmission" means "power conduction wires", but he is the one who said it, so we just do Earth to Earth power beaming (Criswell LSP ppg 12-13) and ask permission later.

  2. Didn't they meet only once though? I seem to only remember that first time and thought it was the only time they all came together.

  3. I agree, push back seems to be targeted at him personally since he has been getting regulatory flak aimed at Tesla as well. I guess this is what happens when you get into a twitter war with a powerful Democrat Senator (Warren from MA).

    Also forgot to add the the Biden wouldn't even say the name Tesla when talking about electric vehicles.

    I would say that the Biden Admin is actively hostile towards Musk and his companies.

  4. I've only ever read about Elon being at the White House a couple of times, one for a conference of tech moguls, and the other wasn't confirmed if he even met with the president so maybe "many times" is an overstatement. Also, this is from CNBC's Joe Kernen while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum interview with Trump. This is Trumps statement:

    KERNEN: Tesla's now worth more than GM and Ford. Do you have comments on Elon Musk?

    TRUMP: Well — you have to give him credit. I spoke to him very recently, and he's also doing the rockets. He likes rockets. And — he does good at rockets too, by the way. I never saw where the engines come down with no wings, no anything, and they're landing. I said I've never seen that before. And I was worried about him, because he's one of our great geniuses, and we have to protect our genius. You know, we have to protect Thomas Edison and we have to protect all of these people that — came up with originally the light bulb and — the wheel and all of these things. And he's one of our very smart people and we want to– we want to cherish those people.

    Every time I've heard Trump speak; he sounds like a two-bit snake oil salesman.

    IMO Biden is not acknowledging Elon as much if at all is because of how Elon has acted publicly in the last handful of years. Dude can act like a dbag. I still support his endeavors, but the guy needs to lay off the social media.

  5. Trump had Musk over at the White house many times, frequently praised him in public, was pushing a human return to the Moon on an accelerated schedule, and was pursuing a strongly de-regulatory policy.

    They didn't always see eye to eye, on, for instance, climate change, but in terms of regulatory policy, Trump was absolutely in Musk's corner, while Biden is hostile enough he didn't even mention Tesla when praising US electric car manufacturing.

  6. How so we know that the orange guy was helping Musk? Not saying that your wrong, just wondering if there is concrete evidence, or if it's inference from observing how fast/slow things were/are progressing.

  7. Looking forward to it. There has been a lot of technological progress at SpaceX over the last year, unfortunately there has also been a huge amount of regulatory push back, now that he no longer has a champion in the Oval office running interference for him.

    How is he planning on coping with that, going forward?
