Elon Musk has noted that progress in any given technology is simply # of iterations * progress between iterations.
Let us assume that the SpaceX Starship is a complete fully reusable success that achieves mass production.
DARPA Blackjack aims to demonstrate spy satellite sensors that are low in size, weight, and power, and that can be mass produced to fit on many different buses from many different providers, for less than $2 million per payload.
SpaceX has successfully had a static engine test firing for a Raptor engine and for Starship prototype.
In a bombshell exclusive, Reuters reports the Trump administration is readying plans to initiate a pact among US allies for mining the moon:
The U.S. military has released its first commercial for the Space Force to attract what will be its first recruits as the service evolves into the military's newest branch.
THE Trump administration is reportedly putting together a legal blueprint for mining on the moon as part of the Artemis Accords, a new U.S.-sponsored international agreement.
A Florida team working with the US Air Force claims that it's built and tested an experimental model of a rotating detonation rocket engine, which uses spinning explosions inside a ring channel to create super-efficient thrust.
No one saw it coming until it was right on top of us. More like above us, actually.
I'm hearing that Tom Cruise and Elon Musk's Space X are working on a project with NASA that would be the first narrative feature film – an action adventure – to be shot in outer space.
--including lieutenant who emailed top general directly asking to make the switch from Air Force
Musk's fantasies about colonizing Mars and selling seats on orbital space flights proved a very effective cover for the corporation's core military applications. Moreover, Space-X's status as a private corporation allows it to defray some of th
SpaceX has announced that it will mount a sun visor on each of its Starlink satellites and have them perform controlled maneuvers...
The SpaceX SN4 Starship has passed a lower pressure cryo fuel test. The next milestone will be the static fire test, where the Starship will be held in place during engine firing.
Direct comparisons were made between aerocapture and competing orbit insertion techniques based on state-of-the-art and advanced chemical propulsion, solar electric propulsion, and aerobraking.
SpaceX teams have assembled Starship SN4 in about 2 weeks and it is on the test stand. SpaceX is actively building the next Starship, SN5.
A new design could enable affordable exploration of Venus and other harsh environments.
Florida researchers propose a new method, called Aqua Factorem, to extract lunar water. It will drastically reduce energy and complexity of lunar mining operations helping to establish this industry.
The solar gravitational lens (SGL) is characterized by remarkable properties: it offers brightness amplification of up to a factor of ~1e11 [100 billion amplification] (at 1 um) and extreme angular resolution (~1e-10 arcsec). As such, it allows for e
Elon Musk says Starlink will offer a private beta for a global internet service in about three months and start offering a public beta service in 6 months.
An ultra-long-wavelength radio telescope on the far-side of the Moon has tremendous advantages compared to Earth-based and Earth-orbiting telescopes.
The Lunar Polar Mining Outpost (LPMO) (see quad chart graphic) is a breakthrough mission architecture that promises to greatly reduce the cost of human exploration and industrialization of the Moon.
In March 2020, Positron Dynamics completed a new source installation at Berkeley. They continue to make progress on experiments and designs.
The Swarm-Probe Enabling ATEG Reactor, or SPEAR, is a nuclear electric propulsion spacecraft that uses a new, lightweight reactor moderator and advanced thermoelectric generators (ATEGs) to greatly reduce overall core mass.
The new feature will debut on Starlink Launch 9.
SpaceX has successfully reused a faring and they have another successful launch of 60 Starlink Satellites. If they are able to use the v0.9 satellites then they have enough satellites for minor global coverage.
SpaceX launched Wednesday, April 22 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, or 19:30 p.m. UTC, for its seventh launch of Starlink satellites. Falcon 9 lifted off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, April 22 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, or 19:30 p.m. UTC, for its seventh launch of Starlink satellites.
Liftoff is set for 3:37 p.m. EDT (1937 GMT).
Wednesday's good weather forecast occasioned the shift.
