The Musk family’s SpaceX manned spacecraft was successfully launched early yesterday morning. With the roar of the Falcon 9 rocket, the Dragon 2 spacecraft carrying two astronauts into Earth orbit, mankind has entered a new space era. As a super want to go to heaven’s space enthusiasts, the poor review of the computer stayed up late to watch the entire launch live broadcast, had to say is a little excited.
The significance of this SpaceX launch is that exploring outer space has gone from state-led to commercial company-led, taking the first step in what ordinary people want to achieve interstellar travel.
In other words, we ordinary people in their lifetimes, perhaps really have a chance to go into space to go around.
This boarding bridge is the same as flying… Tattoo
The man, who believes that Earthlings, including you and I, had fancied one day leaving the Earth’s surface for a star trek in space, and that SpaceX Space Exploration, founded by Musk, wanted to commercialize manned spaceflight.
Before this launch, manned space engineering is carried out at the national level, now the world only Russia, the United States, China and other three countries have mastered manned space technology, astronauts are through strict screening and selection, one thousand miles, ordinary people can choose the probability should be more difficult than winning the lottery.
What Musk wants to do is put down the cost of space travel and make it possible for the general public to enjoy star treks.
Sounds like a live-streamed slogan…
But when you look at Musk’s space travel plans, it’s a woc from the bottom of your heart…
…… You can press ??? this project.
The project on SpaceX’s official website appears to be the lowest-budget, the “short” journey around earth’s orbit.
Participants can view the earth at an altitude of 300 km above the earth, using the starship to transport people from one end of the earth to the other, a journey that takes only 30 minutes or so.
It’s only 34 minutes from London to Hong Kong, which is terrible. Tattoo
The poor review jun felt that the project is currently the most practical, it can greatly save people in the global village commute time, in the past need to take a dozen hours of plane to reach the place, is not yet too late to take a nap.
So how exactly do you put the price down?
Tech maniacs like Musk are hard-pressed. Now that starships are the main means of transport, it’s better to try and make a mistake on the cost, and try how cheap the ship can be made.
Not only to find cheap materials, but also must have welding points to do …
Can this thing really shoot up?
Of course not, with the toes can guess, the test process is full of Boom – Boom , Boom , the day before this manned test, but also bombed a starship …
Although the method may seem rough, once the safety standards are tested, the cost of the Starship can actually be reduced and put into mass production.
The launch of the Falcon 9 rocket and dragon spacecraft is to test whether it is feasible to send humans to a space station in low-Earth orbit, or to land on the moon at a longer distance, or to migrate to Mars.
After all, the space program, which used to be a national effort, now hands over control to private companies, and no one can guarantee it.
Unlike the U.S. space shuttle, SpaceX uses the same spaceshuttle program as Russia and China, consisting of a propulsion device and a spaceship.
The propulsion device, or rocket, is a two-stage booster rocket from FALCON 9 ( Falcon 9) and is the world’s first reusable orbital rocket.
The recycled part is mainly a first-stage booster with a bracket at the bottom, which, after launching the rocket, will be precisely landed in the position set for recovery.
The recycling process is simple and straightforward, and there are solutions to it, whether on land or in the sea.
Part of the capsule is even more brain holes, the dragon (DRAGON) spacecraft can carry up to seven passengers to and from near-Earth orbit and land.
The Dragon spacecraft does not have the escape tower of a traditional spacecraft, but instead has eight SuperDraco engines…
In the event of an accident, the Dragon spacecraft has the ability to get out of the rocket and escape on its own, which saves a lot of weight.
SpaceX’s transformation of the interior of the cockpit is striking, almost by the way it looks like a touch-based control interface, almost entirely with the previously dense physical buttons in the cockpit, in line with Tesla’s design philosophy.
Touch operation can be so cool! Tattoo
From in-cabin design to astronaut’s spacewear, every detail seems to be seen only in sci-fi movies, and it’s hard to imagine the future coming so close to us.
It’s not easy to look at the previous spacesuit.
Some may not like it, but it has quietly defined the future.
The purpose of the manned test is very clear, one is to see if the design of the Dragon spacecraft can adapt to the needs of manned spacecraft, to see if there will be problems with docking the space station.
Second, the Falcon 9 rocket can be successfully recovered after the rocket launch, if successful, is undoubtedly standing to save money.
To ensure its success rate, SpaceX has used NASA’s resources to help itself.
Although NASA has not carried out a manned program since 2011 because of the space shuttle’s safety concerns, the astronauts are well stocked to provide the most professional guidance to minimize the risk.
The Columbia crashed on its return to the atmosphere in 2003, killing all seven astronauts. Tattoo
Two astronauts on the mission, Douglas Hurley and Robot Behnken, both have worked on the International Space Station, and the trip will be an unforgettable experience for them.
Before setting off, they took two Tesla Model Xs to the launch tower, wondering if it had been arranged by the horse’s boss, and the brand was exposed.
After the countdown, the Falcon 9 took off slowly on board the second generation of the Dragon spacecraft, and less than ten minutes later, the positioning ship off Florida recovered its first-stage booster.
Unfortunately, in the live television screen, the pilot did not cut the recovery of the moment of the lens, people all over the world did not see this historic picture.
Fortunately later the official to make up, the scene to be more handsome and handsome.
The docking of the space station three hours ago was also well completed, this time without a pull- and a very clear shot.
It is true that this launch is a happy event for all mankind, no less than any successful space launch in human history.
Everyone has a dream of flying, and Musk has pulled it closer to us, perhaps to the extent that it can reach, perhaps to the point where we can’t think of it ourselves.
In his lifetime, the poor judge must go to space once, to see the sea of stars, to travel the universe flood.
Finally put an old Chuan in the launch site deep back as the end of it, these two days he should have something else in his heart blocking …
