Would it not be ironically hilarious if the Mars spaceship ends up looking EXACTLY like the 'absurd' spaceships of 1950's space movies? :)

Stainless Steel is a MUST when you are going in and out of WATER and not a vaccum. The FACTS speak for themselves. Stainless Steel = WATER VESSEL. Water Vessel = NOT A SPACE FARING VEHICLE.

could be using 'flash bainite steel': newatlas.com/flash-bainite-automotive-testing/40774/ . special heat treatment doing processing to make stronger than other steels so can use less.

Excellent analysis. Ship looks like something from a 1950s pulp science fiction magazine. Given enough time, sci-fi tends to become reality. Seems to me.

+Bill Anderson Good points. Many problems remain to be solved. All large engineering or scientific projects are a trade off. Especially if public funds are being used. This new starhopper ship looks pretty good. Science and technology will continue to move forward.

A gray irony in space travel is that often “high tech” is not better. For example, how do you make water, breathable oxygen, and rocket fuel on Mars? Centuries old technology. Seriously. NASA goes for such perceived high tech these days not because it is technically necessary (most often it isn’t) but because it is politically necessary. They have to “spread the jobs” among enough congressional districts to maintain some semblance of political support, hence budget. The sad irony there is that they wind up doing less for more.

Even though it may look like a "shit show" I'm sure that the rocket scientist/ rocket engineers are learning quite a bit for their "shit show mistakes". Like you said, and showed the site where you can "learn from your mistakes", I'm sure that they are doing the same. Space travel, right now, is still in the "trial and error" stages...yes, there have been a lot of successful launches, but when you really get down to it, they have all just been by sheer luck pretty much.

I kinda like that idea of sweating to cool. I hope the ship doesn't get any blackheads like I'd from sweating but I doubt that would happen with methane as long as you don't go to a planet with a high pressure atmosphere. Lol

+Loxx Rexx that's better sir. Titanium is expensive but its stronger than steel and a little bit heavier than aluminum. Excepting graphene, is the most "futuristic" and advanced material overall

+Old Albird Haha so smart, of course they do. But video shows you these graphs with weight and strength, and do not acknowledge titanium, which is widely use in space and supersonic planes. The narration goes like there is no alternative, it should've said: "there is titanium which is light as aluminum, and strong as steel but it could not be used in this instance because blablabalbalba" get it?

I keep seeing articles and videos where they discuss rocket technology for going to the Moon and Mars, and setting up bases. As if those are the only challenges. YET, every long term study of people spending time in space shows that the space environment is extremely harmful to our bodies. Between the lack of gravity, causing skeletal, muscular and eye degeneration, you have radiation screwing with people's chromosomes, DNA, and immune system. Why don't we ever hear about anyone addressing those, well known, issues? So far, space exploration seems like a very short term job, because it will eventually kill you. So, it's pretty much, a one way trip, unless you make that trip very short. Which is just the opposite of either a lunar base or Mars base. Your body wouldn't be able to handle coming home after a stay on Mars, because of skeletal and muscular degeneration, possible blindness, and have a compromised immune system and/or cancer. Read up on what they have learned about the effects of long term space flight on the ISS and you'll see what I mean. They don't like telling you what happens to the human body when it spends a year or more in space. It's not good. To me, it's the human body's limitations and vulnerabilities that are the most pressing issue with space exploration. Unless those issues are addressed, it's exploration by robot. Or short life span, suicidal, disposable astronauts. I have plenty of confidence that we can build the rockets, structures, etc.....but shielding the human body from radiation and battling the effects of near zero gravity may prove our undoing. We are very much unsuited for the rigors of space exploration.
