Step Aside Moon Buggy, the World’s First Moon Motorcycle Concept Is Here

Posted by in category: space travel

Dresden-based motorcycle think tank Hookie has its eyes set on the moon. The company developed a drivable prototype for a two-wheeled lunar exploration vehicle. Named the Tardigrade, the vehicle is much lighter than your traditional moon buggy, meaning that the concept would be more cost-effective to launch to space.

“A moon buggy requires almost the same space as 3–4 Tardigrades,” Nico Müller, one of Hookie’s co-founders told us in an email interview. “The weight is much less than that of a complete buggy made out of steel.”

Raptor and BE4SpaceX and Blue Origin have been competing with each other for many space crafts and commercial contracts. We have also talked about their rivalry many times but today is all about their engines that fire up the massive rockets both the companies are developing. SpaceX, the leading space company has made many rocket engines since its launch in 2002. A few months ago, SpaceX completed its 100th Raptor Engine. This extraordinary milestone was achieved in just 29 months. Blue Origin’s rocket engines game started work on the BE-4 in 2011. Importantly, they said the “BE-4 would be ‘ready for flight’ by 2017″, but at this moment Blue Origin’s powerful BE-4 engine is more than four years late. The first flight test of the new engine is now expected no earlier than 2022 on the Vulcan rocket. This is a big problem and we need to talk about that.
So, How did Blue Origin’s BE-4 turn into a joke whereas SpaceX’s Raptor is the leading example?
Let’s find out:
Firstly, how has BE-4 gone through almost a decade of failure?
This was their first engine to combust liquid oxygen and liquified natural gas propellants. It was initially planned for the engine to be used exclusively on a Blue Origin proprietary launch vehicle New Glenn, the company’s first orbital rocket. However, it was announced in 2014 that the engine would also be used on the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Vulcan Centaur launch vehicle, the successor to the Atlas V launch vehicle. This was labeled “a stunner” choice. The company planned to begin full-scale engine testing in late 2016 and expected to complete the development of the engine in 2017.However, the first engine was not fully assembled until March 2017. Also, in March, United Launch Alliance indicated that the economic risk of the Blue Origin engine selection option had been retired, but that the technical risk on the project would remain until a series of engine firing tests were completed later in 2017. A test anomaly occurred on 13 May 2017 and Blue Origin reported that they lost a set of powerpack hardware.

Why Hasn’t Elon Musk Been To Space?

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel, sustainability

WWhy Hasn’t Elon Musk Been To Space?: Jeff Bezos decided to mark the first success of the long-running New Shepard project with a flight to space, literally. And Richard Branson recently did the same with Virgin Galactic.

However, something is off with the CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk. Despite having made so many breakthroughs in space travel, Elon Musk has never once taken a trip to space. But, Why is that? Well, we will find out in just a second.

Elon Musk was at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the day SpaceX’s first space tourists launched, clapping as the private astronauts walked past the Tesla that would transport them to suit.

Elon Musk Says His Fortune Can Help Extend Life To Mars

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk, space travel, sustainability

Commenting on Elon Musk’s Dogecoin fortune, one youtuber drew the billionaire CEO of SpaceX’s attention to an important issue.

Considered the richest man in the world, Elon Musk is a Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum enthusiast in the cryptocurrency market. According to Forbes Real Time Billionaires, his current fortune is estimated at $214 billion.

In addition to running SpaceX, Musk is still ahead of Tesla, a company that has registered a great growth in the market with its electric vehicles. But he is mostly following the future of DOGE, which is his favorite meme currency.

SpaceX Is Building A Giant Gas Pipeline

Posted by in category: space travel

S SpaceX Is Building A Giant Gas Pipeline – Silently: SpaceX is not just working on going beyond the earth, but they’re also planning on going into the earth – in search of gas. They’re building a giant gas pipeline.

With the enormity of the things that’ll have to come together for such a project to take shape, why has SpaceX and the mainstream media decided to keep everything about it on a hush? And most importantly, why is a company known for space exploration drilling for oil and building giant gas pipes? W

Assume you’ve hyped up the creation and delivery of a gigantic rocketship capable of transporting humans to Mars. Assume, for whatever reason, you’ve determined that neither hydrogen gas nor conventional rocket fuel (kerosene) will work for this rocket.
