Starship and Everyday Astronaut

September 10, 2021 — Thomas Leavitt

Naturally enough, Everyday Astronaut is paying a lot of attention to SpaceX and what they're doing with Starship, as is pretty much everyone involved with the space industry, "enthusiast" and professional alike. As a part of my "research" process, I'm reviewing the following videos and thought I'd blog about them in the process (check back for updates as that happens), as they're likely to be of interest to anyone reading this blog who hasn't yet come across them. Last updated: September 10th, 2021.

They aim to have it be the cheapest ride to orbit... less than $5 million per launch. Just fuel and personell time, because it is fully reusable (obviously, there has to be some depreciation per launch, but at the intended cost of manufacture, $5 million, that's relatively negligible).

There's a ton of content on this channel, and I do have a life (or sorts) even with the pandemic and my being a "space nut", so I'm not going to look at or comment on every related video, but I will add to this post as I view each listed video, and if / as I watch more.
