Well today we're focused on the failed launch of SpaceX's starship and heavy booster from Boca Chica, Texas (the very southern tip of Texas, close to the mouth of the Rio Grande and Mexico. There's a question I have, but we'll get to that at the end of the podcast:
SpaceX's Starship versus the Saturn V

From all previous SpaceX flights, the sequence is MECO (main engine cut off where in all booster engines are shut off ) followed immediately by stage separation. The second stage engines then ignite while the main booster slows down. As the second stage proceeds to orbit, the main booster then begins its return maneuver which entails an attitude change with selected engines fired to complete the maneuver back to the recovery station.
It appears in this case that the stage separation failed and the flight computer of the booster proceeded to execute its landing maneuver.
Example of previous SpaceX successful flights can seen at the following link.
the manouvre is needed because we are living under a plasma drome on a much greater earth. So the rocket cannot keep on going upwards, but needs to go sidewards. this can been seen in other footage from NASA during the launch of rockets, Hence Mars is nor somewhere in space, but is just another place on this greater earth. instead of looking above we need to look below. having this in mid, it is good to read about the Bucegi mountains in Romania
do you really believe that or are you just well poisoning?
The problem with Starship is will it be the USA N-1 I would have preferred an Earth-to-Moon orbiting spacecraft, And use something like Falcon 9 to ferry crew and cargo from the Earth. I would also prefer that the Earth-to-Moon spacecraft be nuclear-powered. And that the orbiting spacecraft be inflatable so it could customize..
Confident another technology will go online when needed.
Horse & Buggy tech too explosive, for commercial use in the future.
[at least in space].
Although, if they could create a Horse & Buggy space-based civilization;
than a future antigravity tech civilization, would zip circles and/or zigzags –
all over those old chemical wagons.
A real ace in the hole, for secret space programs.
I wonder if it’s already been done, on several orders of magnitude?
After all, the galaxy is a BIG place; both in the scope, of time & space.
