  1. So how will it send images back 60 million miles away.?
    Can’t fly over populated areas because it is going to crash in to the ocean.
    So… you can’t see this rocket burning at night 100 miles high yet you can see the ISS at 250 miles burning nothing.
    Nice imagination folks.

  2. If they clean the lander so that there are no earth-born microbes, do they pressurise the faring with nitrogen gas or clean air to ensure there is nothing in the air that could contaminate it?

  3. Hey Tim! Huge fan. Thanks for doing this live launch coverage. I just wanted to chime in on your SSTO comments around 55:35 because I think SSTO offers two main advantages, at least for Reaction Engine's Skylon/SABRE SSTO concept.

    1) Reduced complexity. Having two huge powerful craft attached to each other and detaching part-way through flight like the SpaceX BFR/BFS, leaves very little margin of error. If you don't detach, everyone is dead. If the 1st stage crashes into the 2nd stage, everyone is dead. Mechanical parts have to work flawlessly every single time on every flight, which is very hard to guarantee.

    2) No engine-out option. Yes the BFS is going to have two or more engines for landing so there will be redundancy, but if there's a common component that stops all engines, everyone is dead. Aircraft/The Shuttle/winged craft in general at least have the final option to glide to a landing, even if it is a crash landing.

    There may be other advantages but I think those are the two biggest ones. I do get what you're saying about total payload into orbit is likely to be higher with BFR/BFS but I guess time will tell. It'd be nice to have all the solutions available and then just pick which one is better for the mission profile!

    Keep doing great work dude. See you on Mars.

  4. CSA as well but I don't think they are doing a whole lot, just doesn't have the resources :(. I'm amazed no one seems to be doing anything on a electromagnetic launcher to speak of, I know there is a proposal out there but no one is attempting to build one. I know the us military shoots like a 7kg "round" at like 5k mph so sounds to me just needs some engineering to start putting at least raw materials into space, heck even if they only launched fuel for rockets would make sense to start building up some resources.

  5. You let people with all sorts of diseases get into your space suit in those nation. Are you not worried about germs and dirt getting in your suit you shouldn't let anybody get in to your suit
