Who the fuck left all those beads on the moon?
Sounds like it will be incredibly energy intensive to access.
We get that sucker spinning, we can make it work. Cores good, just needs a kick start.Technically Pluto has an atmosphere, but it is insanely thin and periodically freezes and falls to the surface. To get an actual Earth-like atmosphere on something the size of the moon would take far too many resources (even if you could access all the water trapped on the moon, it wouldn't be enough and it would be a waste in any event) and it would have to be periodically refreshed. The moon doesn't have a magnetic field currently and the Earth's doesn't provide any reliable protection for it either.
Also you joke, but during the Cold War there was a rejected plan to nuke the moon to show off American military might to the world.
In any event, if there was a plan to make a breathable atmosphere outside Earth, you'd be better off focusing on a massive terraforming project for Venus or Mars. Although even those would be projects on an almost unimaginable scale
Nope. Cant spin at that distance, and at it's current, tidally locked distance, it helps to stabilize earth's wobble; pushing the moon away, so it is no longer tidal locked, will cause an issue on earth (also, the moon is already moving away, very very slowly).We get that sucker spinning, we can make it work. Cores good, just needs a kick start.
raptor is only 1 exhaust though the one above is 4.
raptor 2 is rated at ~230 tons of thrust-~269 max recorded in flight
raptor 3 was announced at ~269 tons in testing i think as a "base"
4 of those would be 1076 tons.
falcon super heavy according to an elon tweet is 8877 tons.
Note that the Raptor has a diameter of 1.3m. The RD-170 is 3.8m, no idea about the RD-171. The thrust to weight ratio of the Raptor is 143 and RD-171 is 84.84. They cram some 33 of these on their booster.800+ tons of thrust if true
SpaceX Raptor is under 300 tons
Cool story bro, were you thinking it was going to get pictures of Jesus's sphincter or something?its been a year+ and i still havent seen a single good JWST image
