Elon Musk on how Falcon Heavy will change space travel

วิทยาศาสตร์และเทคโนโลยี

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida yesterday carrying its first payload -- a red Tesla roadster -- into orbit. Loren Grush spoke to CEO Elon Musk about the launch and what this means for the future of space travel, as well as Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye. The Falcon Heavy now holds the title for the world’s most powerful rocket, and its launch marks the first time a vehicle this massive has ever been sent up by a commercial company.

    What a beautiful video. This should get much more views and show the humanity what SpaceX is doing for us. Thanks Elon Musk and every single one that is behind his team, every single worker in SpaceX and Tesla. ☺️

    The Quattro Well... Let me see where to start. Falcon Heavy project has proven that it's possible to reuse rockets. So what that means? It means that instead of spending millions of dollars into rockets it can go to other places like research of multiple areas, like human/animals diseases, eco-friendly applications, education, advanced structures comprehension, potable water solutions, and the list keeps going. Don't limit your mind, this has so much meaning for the humanity history. For your other question, what Tesla had made for us? I really need to answer that? It is self-explanatory. Just search for what technology has done for humanity for Dummies.

    Guys, to put this in perspective: when FH was announced, SpaceX had never landed a booster. Their goals were insane. When it was delayed and delayed many people thought that it could never fly. Then, a booster was landed. Then another, and another. The Heavy became viable. Then, before all the hype, the payload was announced: a red Tesla Roadster, destined for Mars. The rocket launched, broke at least 10 world records, and sent a car out into the asteroid belt. Don't forget that five years ago this was impossible.

    Honestly, what I love about Elon is he just truly seems like a down to earth guy and I know people say don’t meet your heroes but I feel like he wouldn’t let me down. He’s a human being, you can tell he’s nervous in front of crowds just as we all would be and that sense of passion is something I have been searching for to reinvigorate a new space race. I see so many bitter comments which is disheartening, how do you think you are able to stream videos, listen to music, travel and survive crashes, live in a high rise that can survive massive earthquakes, be warned of various natural disasters? The innovators, the teams of people throughout human history that sought to find answers that no one else ever had and they did it through trial and error. Every experiment leads to a new dataset to be studied that adds another puzzle piece that eventually becomes something that can be stable and improved upon from a basic blueprint that expands throughout the entirety of mathematics and the sciences that make the modern world such a fantastic place.

    What an accomplishment! Way to go SpaceX. I am so glad I live on the Space coast and get to see the launches. I have seen a large amount of Rocket launches the last 40 yrs - but this one was the most exciting because of Elon and his amazing teams of super duper rocket scientists......Love to see what happens next around here. So cool.

    @Un Listed I think Musk should be worrying more about what's happening to his fellow white South Africans than about colonizing Mars. Because we're not colonizing mars or any other planet anytime soon in our lifetime. We've got enough to worry about in earth than in other planets. Colonizing other planets and the moon it's not going to happen or at least in our lifetime.

    I'll admit I'm pretty impressed with Tue's launch of the Falcon Heavy! And how appropriate to launch from Saturn V's 39A pad. Too bad about the center core, *_stuff-happens!_* Considering the engineering/tech marvel of everything, 2 out of 3 isn't too damn bad! They'll get it right soon, I have all the confidence in them now. Do we even *_need_* the NASA SLS Orion anymore? It's *_so_* behind anyway. For a sec I thought Bill Nye had a 2nd career as an actor in _"The Newsroom,"_ but that was Sam Waterston. :)

  • Odedl
    Odedl4 ปีที่แล้ว

    I watched the launch a few times and it gets me emotional every time and only now I figured out why- The voices in the background are hundreds of people who worked on this for years. All from different places, races, etc. And they all have only one goal- to reach for the stars. It sounds corny as hell but this is factually true and this is why it's so moving- it's the most ancient story- star man flies up to the sky to unknown realms to help his village who supported his journey. And truly there is only one word to describe this: Hope.

    Every time I watch one of these SpaceX launch videos,I kind of have this mind blowing feeling that by the reactions of the people watching the SpaceX rockets launch that they never knew rockets launched before SpaceX started launching Rockets...But landing the boosters is new and pretty cool...

  • Anita95
    Anita953 ปีที่แล้ว

    No matter how impressive this was, I really liked the simultaneous landing of the side rockets, a simple fact still is very fundamental - energy costs. It costs a lot of energy to lift things up from the earth gravity well, and that will never change. The fossile fuels are not only limited but at the end of the line, they will soon become severely limited and expensive. At the same time, when I was a kid we were less than 4 billion people on this earth, we are now double as many, the limit for the earth is by many believed to be about 9-10 billion, which we will reach very soon! Ideas, visions and imagination are very important, but so are reality checks. Space travel for a few will cost the resources hundreds of millions needs just to survive. Sometimes we need to do hard but ethical choices. What truly amazes me is the personal cult Elon Musk has built, it is all about HIM, not the true genious in the team who are actually designing the thing. The problem with cults are that critisism are never ever allowed and the followers will never listen to opposing voices - such as mine.

The point of his electric cars are not to take carbon out of the atmosphere, it's to eliminate the cars that produce it in addition. This is for a much better cause, compared to lorries driving back and forth with consumer products that we later throw away. Or people driving their gasoline cars to work out of sheer lazyness and comfort rather than taking public transportation, or even taking the bike. You're comparing apples to oranges. It's not going to remain there for decades either. It'll saturate and get carried away with jet streams all over the globe to get regenerated by vegetation.

    A couple of centuries ago it would've taken weeks, maybe months to get from one side of the world to the other. The furthest an average person would travel in their lifetime would be a few miles from their place of birth. Yet now anyone can go pretty much anywhere on Earth in less than a day. Is it so hard to imagine a future where interplanetary travel becomes the norm? Technological advancement has accelerated at an unprecedented pace. I'm so glad someone like Elon Musk exists. Without such visionaries we wouldn't be making progress anywhere near this rate.

    does anyone know if spacex has talked about how they are going to keep reusing rockets safe? the fact is dealing with extremely high and low temps can make materials weaker after time.

    Seeing that take off makes me teary eyed. It's just incredible, space travel is the greatest achievement humanity will ever achieve in the entirety of our existence. And to think, in the timeline of what we can achieve - we're still just babies! We're hardly even walking yet, hell a majority of the earths populous only saw the first ever rocket take off a mere fifty or so years ago. Just incredible, I wish I could live long enough to see how far we'll go - but I'm lucky to have lived in an era where this is all beginning!

    +MG42pillbox I have no clue why I am replying, but I felt compelled (since it appears that you are a real person and not just a throwaway troll). Even if it were "fake, (which, I'd imagine, you'd have to be pretty damn ignorant to think so) it's a private company, bro. By the same logic, you could get angry at Apple, Toyota, Keurig, McDonalds, etc. You're probably thinking of NASA. In which case, I'm afraid to tell you, they get a laughably small amount of funding from the government. If you're talking about another country, you should consult their local space agency, in the unlikely event that they have one.

Inspiring the next generation to get involved in STEM subjects is possibly the only way for us to tackle issues such as world hunger. Also, space travel is real and the earth isn't flat.

    Flat Earth NZ the moon is nowhere near the largest moon in the solar system and the suns pull does affect the moon it has an egg shaped orbit arounf the earth for just that reason.The reason there is no model showing the solar system working is because it is just to big.To make to scale model even with stuff like marbles you would need miles of space

  • Odysseus Rex

    Flat Earth NZ Without being mathematically rigorous, planets at different distances from the Sun move at different speeds because the force of gravity between two objects declines proportionally to the square of the distance between them. This fact allows you to derive, mathematically, Kepler's third law of planetary motion, which describes this phenomenon and which he determined empirically through astronomical observation. What makes you think the Suns pull has no effect on the Moon? Certainly it does. It's just relatively small and nothing you can observe with the naked eye. Astronomers know about it, and it is taken in to account when determining the courses of Lunar probes. Actually of course, when flying to the Moon, you have to take in to account the Sun's influence on the spacecraft, too. It is small, but measurable. The Moon could have had a natural satellite, it is not physically impossible, but it is not physically necessary either. Also, it is not the largest natural satellite in the Solar System, Titan is. And it doesn't have a satellite either. I don't know what you mean by no model showing the solar system "working". Orbital mechanics is one of the best understood branches of Physics. We can predict, with tremendous accuracy, the future course and position of every object we can observe. It is necessary to distinguish between gravitation, the phenomenon that objects influence each other's motion through space in a measurable and mathematically predictable way, and gravity, which is a theory that explains that phenomenon. Isaac Newton's actual explanation for the phenomena he described was the direct action of God on every piece of matter in the universe. After more research had been done, and especially after Cavendish measured the Gravitational Constant, what came to be called the Newtonian Theory of Gravity was that matter exerted a force through space that attracted other matter according to the mathematical law Newton had determined. The best accepted theory now is that of Einstein, as described in his General Theory of Relativity, which holds that matter actually alters the geometry of space itself, thereby forcing other material objects to follow the curvature of space, producing gravitational phenomena. The satellite Gravity Probe B actually made direct measurements of the curvature of space around the earth. Quantum Gravity holds that material objects are continuously exchanging particles, called gravitons, which are themselves disturbances in the geometry of space, and this produces the phenomena of gravitation. I imagine that, eventually, we will be able to prove what it is that actually causes gravitation but, in the mean time, there is no question that the phenomenon exists and is very precisely mathematically described. It is most definitely reality. I don't know what you mean about water conforming to an external shape. By the way, you have not linked to any video in this thread.

    +Flat Earth NZ Really???? Smae old questions, nothing new! Okay, you say water cannot be level on a ball. You are correct, unless a massive object is pull on it, Gravity! Watch a mountain as the sun rises. Watch the sun shine on the mountain top before it is foothills and watch the sun shine move down the mountain. (that is mine and FE person has been able to explain that). Yes things fall/accelerate at a predicable rate based on gravity. Planets orbit at different distances from the sun at different speeds to maintain there position. Any slower and they would fall into the sun or hit us. Any faster and they would shoot out of the solar system. Simple! You're up

    Flat Earth NZ. An object that has mass but no weight? Any object in free fall, a rock you drop, you when you jump off of something, a satellite in orbit around the Earth, the Earth orbiting the Sun, the Sun floating through the galaxy.

To the public, Elon Musk is the head of the team so he gets more credits than others in the team.
