How much will it cost to ride on Starship to another country?


Starship is a spaceship designed and manufactured by the private company, SpaceX. We talked about Starship a lot in our previous blog posts, but today we are focusing on Earth-To-Earth travel on Starship, meaning you can travel from one country to another, just like a normal airline, like a Boeing 747. With Starship, you could get to anywhere on earth in under an hour, literally anywhere. A flight could cost about $1,000-$1,500 per seat. You may be wondering why this is so cheap, considering it literally goes into space to travel to another country. Well, Starship is a fully reusable spaceship. Fully. The first stage, aka booster, lands back at the launch site, this is called RTLS, return to launch site. This is what SpaceX's Falcon Rockets currently do, so it has been proven that it can be done. Starship could be rapidly re-used, by simply landing the booster next to the launchpad, moving the booster back onto the launchpad, putting another Starship on top of the booster, fueling it up, and launching again. This is why the tickets are so cheap.





Now you may be asking, is it safe? Starship will be tested lots and lots of times before it becomes commercially available for flight. Elon Musk, the owner and CEO of SpaceX, said that he is aiming for the first crewed Mars Mission on the Starship to be in 2024, meaning Earth-To-Earth travel on Starship could be in 2022, 2023, or 2024. It is currently 2020 and 2 Starship prototypes have flown to 150 meters and landed, and soon a starship will fly to 60,000 ft and land back at the launch site. This means, SpaceX perfects every little thing involved with Starship, meaning your safety is ensured.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEgFsefrGw&t=541s The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
