  1. I feel like musk is full of shit most of the time. He's a great salesman but I don't know about the rest. I watched thunderfoot's video on the hyperloop and he shows musk is basically a bullshit artist who's great at sales lol.

  2. What?? “They just need to mine water and extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and then do some fancy chemistry…”

    Lmao, yeah that’s called MAGIC. There is NOT ENOUGH water and carbon dioxide on Mars to produce ROCKET FUEL.

  3. 09:30 I don't get it. Why would you want to replace damaged tiles once you are on Mars? You can relaunch and transfer to Earth Orbit without needing new heat-tiles.
    In Earth orbit they can transfer to another vehicle for landing (better suited for earth atmosphere and gravity) …

  4. Very well-made video which is very informative as well.
    Two comments though:
    One) It is irritating that a commercial is "woven" into the video creating the illusion (initially) that it is still part of the video and thus luring people into viewing more of it than desired and
    Two) although the commentator is obviously an Anglosaxon speaker, his diction needs a bit looking at especially where the "A" vowel pronounciation is concerned (e.g. the speaker repeatedly says "mErs" instead of "mArs")… is that a personal affectation or such?
    If a video is said to be informative and educational, the correct pronounciation of words matters as well I believe
    Overall though, excellent video 🙂

  5. Wondering if you would do an update video on Starship now that it has been 2 years its truly amazing how they developed both Starship + their new raptor engine. And if you notice in Starships current development they have reverted back to using ablative tiles which is interesting.

  6. Since the lunar stsrship is not going to have reenter capability and can be fueled richt before launche (beacause it will not launch with humans). Would it not be better to use aluminiumaloi insteed of stainlessteel ?

  7. Isn't it cool how he is semi-doubtful the starship project was going to succeed in this video and then a week ago it had its first successful landing, and the project is looking better than ever!

  8. Talking about learning from ones mistakes. CAN YOU SO LEARN? What about at time 10:14. You say "… and test it's flight capabilities…". Did you REALLY intend saying "…test it is flight capabilities…", because that is what you wrote. That "it's" has an eroneous and apostrophe.
