Taking your partner on a ride to Moon to celebrate Karwachauth or special occasions ain’t a fantasy anymore. Thanks to the aspirational Elon Musk. He is handsomely obsessed with Transportation Technologies. Be it hyperloop or rockets, the modern day Iron Man is convinced that no trip between any two cities on the planet should last longer than an episode of your favorite TV Show.
Elon Musk might have changed the space launch industry beyond all recognition but why not make earth breathable and green before moving to Mars Mafia? Of course, Musk’s ultimate goal is still Mars. The Martian.
Since centuries, we’ve been stuck with conventional modes of travel. Why not a new monster rocket? He suggested SpaceX’s forthcoming mega-rocket, Big Fucking Rocket, or to lift a massive spaceship into orbit around the Earth. It is claimed to be a spaceship combo the Interplanetary Transport System. Sounds rich already. The system will eventually become SpaceX’s primary vehicle for launching satellites and traveling to the International Space Station, too. The ship would then settle down on floating landing pads near major cities. Both the new rocket and spaceship are currently theoretical, though Musk did say that he hopes to begin construction on the rocket in the next six to nine months. SpaceX has yet to launch any people into space, and the company has blown plenty of deadlines before.
What do you think it would be one flight per day for the point-to-point version of the ship and one flight a day of the booster?
And, if observed the cost of a ride to the moon, rich people can gleefully colonize Mars after destroying their mother planet. It’s not awkward at all, right.
From a physics standpoint, what Musk is proposing is certainly achievable. We have intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of being fired into orbit and then detonating warheads at a target on Earth in about 30 minutes. Why not humans? Moreover, 100 humans?
Good idea, but you can’t fly humans on that same kind of orbit, the acceleration and the G-forces would blast their heads off. Also, would you like to wear those space suits to keep yourself alive while romancing?
WHAT ABOUT PILOTS?
The responsibilities of taking off and landing an interplanetary rocket full of men, women, and children, might be too much for standard pilots to handle. In fact, it could cause them a hefty nervous breakdown.
So most probably, these BFRs will be autonomous. And what if rocket controls failed, Don’t worry.. be positive, may be you will reach Moon or The fourth dead rock from the sun. So, would you like yourself to be launched into space as seen in Tom & Jerry shows? Leave your response in comments.
Be ready to take Earth-Moon flights now.
