Utter fantasy, you will know this one day, SpaceX is a scam, a squillion dollar one who, like NASA; have done precisely FA in space. We have nothing up 'there' and never will, its not possible. Go ahead and rage, its cold hard truth and every human on earth will know it in the end. Check it out or be duped fools - your freedom of choice. Have a great day all.
Hi Neil of 'Cidi Al-Masry' Sidi Al-Masri Sandage
0:45 ~ There were not "40 formulations" or "57 Formulations". It was #biblical {needs citations, would need to locate the times i found them} #YorkRite metaphor of lose your head=#40. ~ Spray #WD40 on airplane bolts during servicing bare threads and nuts; #PBLaster is a better penetrant or #capillarylube (#turgor air pressure helps), and the #gremlins of vibration would cause objects to fall from the sky. ~ if not done on the ground, happened via thread lube, the reason someone invented #ThreadLock and possible clue why their color is blue, to fight YorkRite or BlueWhite UGLE #roundhead mystery #WaterOfLife is bleeding or pressure releasing the blood of not our #clans (they intend to kill the letter K #klans, because that DNA is listed as enemy of England, and the Vikings never used Fire Funerals). ~ I personally like Red as the color of #ThreadLock, halt accidents and machine failures, rust is an enemy, yet you do want #galvanic or #ionic bonding (not #oxidants, #oxidative) or machine force mechanical #torquebinding.

Incorrect statement about WD40 - it was formulated after 39 previous attempts failed to displace dew from CIRCUIT BOARDS on rockets sitting on launch pads. It was never meant to do anything but displace water in circuitry and wiring connections.

Why do you say 95% of the aluminum goes to "waste" when it is CNC machined... the shavings can just be melted down and made into a solid piece again.

That isn't a starship. By definition, a starship is a vehicle for traveling between stars. We aren't even close to that level of technology at this point in time.

I thought aluminum was more heat resistant than steel?
logicslayer - Hour ago
Aluminum actually conducts heat much better than stainless steel. It's actually put on the bottom of stainless steel cookware to better absorb heat.

+Michael David It's not that big of a problem outside the LEO (which has a lot of space junk). And even if that, somehow, becomes one - Whipple shields (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whipple_shield ) to the rescue!

+caav56 Thank you for replying. Aren't small meteorites the biggest threat to space travel? How can this be avoided?
caav56 - 23 hours ago
It sucks in the metal fatigue department, though. That's why aluminum airframes have strict "flight hours" limit, until they must be scrapped.

FYI that aluminum CNC'd away IS NOT wasted. It's collected, melted down, and reused to make new aluminum billets.
At least it is in any other business besides SpaceX. I assume they do the same. No one would just "waste" that much aluminum and just throw it away, actually wasting it.

As a machinist with 9 years experience... I resent the idea of that an isogrid is very expensive to machine... I would estimate $150 per ft^2 in aluminium, -on the very high end. If it costs more, your machinists are padding.

A big ship landing on mars would create alot of heat. Steel can withstand more heat that is why. there saved you 12 minutes of pointlessness.

You left out how this is just a quick slap stick setup for testing hopping, This rocket will NEVER go into orbit, This rocket is also smaller then the final product that will be built, the star ship will be built completely different and not in a open field.

5:05 , you say that CNC ing isogrid from thicker material produces a lot of waste (95%). This is most likely not true. It is recycled. It is easy to remove lubricants and remelt it, or as a part of another batch, and create another cast.
It is just the problem of time and big machine required. These machines are rather costly, and it probably day or two to machine out one section even when toolpaths are optimized and very high feed rates are used with first past done using coarse milling and big tools.

I love your videos, Keep up the good work!!! 👌🏽💯

Lotta video for not giving the answer... It's Radiation... Only the stage that will carry souls needs to be SS as radiation will bounce off of it rather then passing through or being absorbed and still have a chance at reentry. Twice! First and or second stages can be made out of whatever can hold, launch and push the fully loaded "Star Hopper" to Mars or wherever.

These guys say aluminum in a way that makes it sound like it was invented in the future, in the MCU, and then traveled through another dimension and backwards in time using the infinity stones to get to earth. And that's where aluminum foil comes from.. I mean, "AL-you-mini-yum"
