    Dr Steven strange lookin Felix.... YOURE THE MAN!!!

    And that is with existing technology that SpaceX has currently so for instance the Falcon heavy tanks has two tanks on either side but instead of two tanks the mother starship has four starships a total of five starships in a configuration or cluster the mother starship will have to be built slightly differently and slightly longer so that she can carry the cluster of four ships starships so we know there is going to be a total of five ships a mother four starship. The mothership will be launched into space first and the four star ships will join the Mother starship and will Be cuplink together like the Falcone heavy with the two boosters but instead of boosters she has four stars ships around with her

    Just a thought that came to my mind. For starship voyage to Mars, instead of filling up each and every starship with a full tank. Elon can create a mother starship that will or can carry a cluster of four starships . These four starships only need fuel for landing and taking off from the surface of Mars and then the mothership has enough fuel to take her back to Earth.

    "Floating?" Those drilling rigs in the ocean stand on stilts, do they not?

    Hey my German Brother, you don't need a boat to run a surf school.....

    As a petroleum engineer, I had to wrinkle my nose when you called it an oil rig. The thing in the picture is clearly a drilling rig, it is meant to dig holes in the ground, not to suck up any oil. Edit: Oh, what you see at 9:30 is an oil rig with the flame burning (called flaring) for burning off excess gas. So the oil rig at 9:30 is not the ENSCO 8500.

    I think heat tiles should be layered. Similar to how a roof tile is done. The 1st layer, against the stainless steel, could be much thiner and be there as a precaution/backup in the event the main front thicker atmosphere touching layer failing.

    In 2019 a Falcon 9 booster had to divert and land in the ocean. The booster had almost no damage as a result. Why doesn't SpaceX test the Starship prototypes by landing in the water so they aren't completely destroyed if they fail? Once they perfect the landing velocity then move to landing on hard surfaces?

    We hope so lol

    The winds on Mars are much more dangerous.

  34. dale carpenter

    It is a landing on mars not a reentry! Until they stop denying the electric universe they are just wasting time and lots of money testing for things that are not there and staying ass far away from cydonia ass possible !

  35. Milinda Munasinghe

    Guys got the news EST 13:00 / UTC 18:00 for launch

    1. A Rocket Enthusiast

      Today?

    When is the next launch window I’m sick and tired of delays delays and delays

    1. It’s ya boy jay

      @Leonard yet at least he could add a date and explain what date tommorow is to make it clear

    2. Leonard

      But very likely that today there is no launch, Mary posted they didn't get an evacuation notice

    3. Leonard

      Elon tweeted today morning his time that they're waiting for FAA approval on launch tomorrow Still debate going on if tomorrow means 26th (if he hasn't gone to bed yet) or 27th (truly tomorrow)

    28th comment! Woo Hoo! But, who cares..., not me. €:(

  51. Henry Mestres

    Once we've passed these preliminary tests, I'd like to see a starship take off and land in adverse weather. After all, the goal is to send some 100 ships to Mars, can't just tell everybody that they can't land bc it's too windy!!

    1. Anatoly Makarevich

      @Inigo Montoya two reasons. Noone ever built huge rockets. And second - you don't have living space on Mars. You can't live on the surface due to radiation. But the more interesting question is why bring lots of people there? What is the purpose?

    2. Inigo Montoya

      @Anatoly Makarevich if you can send a small crew, why can’t you send a large crew?

    3. D Blake

      @Rebecca Edwards after a second review, you’re probably right. Seems a stretch however to be concerned about a landing on Mars. It isn’t eminent as the attempt to land on Earth for these tests. However if there was a sandstorm on the red planet, I’m sure no one would recommend landing but either wait it out, or land at a more calm alternate spot.

    4. Anatoly Makarevich

      @Rebecca Edwards Rovers are fine. There were rovers on Mars before and you can send new ones. You can even send a small crew. That is still possible but highly unlikely. But you can't send hunderds of people there. No way.

    5. Rebecca Edwards

      @Anatoly Makarevich Is that so?.. How do you explain the numerous Mars rovers? Those rockets seemed to do just fine?

  52. Fabricio Dahi Brizzante

    Don't believe the Hype

  54. Leonard

    I really hope they will be able to launch this week as soon as possible. Tomorrow would be great but I think it's a bit too cloudy

      @James Blackstar Now, being a scouser, that's a different matter all together. Lol.

    3. Dene. F.

      @James Blackstar There is nothing wrong with being gay, absolutely nothing at all in my humble opinion.
