    Absolutely amazing considering it was built for a 90 day mission.

    God speed lil guy
    It sure set the bar high for its successors. It's this kind of amazing engineering feat that gives me hope for the future.

    It's a test rig for the engine with some weights and a rough shape.

    It's just meant to go up and then land again nothing fancy.

    Its a flight test article for Raptor engines and Starship avionics.

    Also, go see Apollo 11. It's spectacular.

    It is. Right now its only in IMAX theaters in the US, and will be for a few more days, but the launch is darn close to actually being there. It's awesome.

    New article https://inference-review.com/article/lost-in-space argues manned space travel is a waste of money. I didn't realize so little beneficial research has come out of the space program.

    Let's just deplete the Earth's resources and devolve to a stone age civilisation fighting over scraps in a few narrow barely habitable latitudes because of climate change...

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    the article does have a point tho. once you send the machines to prepare all the things is the only viable time to actually send humans up there. big waste of resources to have meatbags using up all the precious resources when you can do it via remote (see: drone technology in modern day armies for a recent example)
