The chase for fusion energy

Posted by in categories: business, economics, nuclear energy, space travel

And just as private space travel is now materializing, many industry observers are forecasting that the same business model will give rise to commercial fusion — desperately needed to decarbonize the energy economy — within a decade. “There’s a very good shot to get there within less than ten years,” says Michl Binderbauer, chief executive of TAE Technologies. In the FIA report, a majority of respondents thought that fusion would power an electrical grid somewhere in the world in the 2030s.

An emerging industry of nuclear-fusion firms promises to have commercial reactors ready in the next decade.

SpaceX Starship 2022: How next year will pave way for Mars City and Artemis

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, physics, space travel

On Wednesday, CEO Elon Musk outlined how the company’s under-development rocket will deliver a “high fly rate” of a dozen launches in 2022. This will enable the ship to deliver actual payloads in 2023 before moving on to more ambitious goals like sending humans to the Moon and Mars.

The comments, made at the joint meeting of the Space Studies Board and the Board on Physics and Astronomy, outline how the stainless steel rocket taking shape in Texas will move from prototype curiosity to working ship.

Orion spacecraft production continues for Artemis 2 and 3

Posted by in category: space travel

The arrival of the second Orion European Service Module (ESM) at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in October signified the beginning of months of final assembly of the first crewed Orion spacecraft that will fly four people on the Artemis 2 mission. Following the delivery of the ESM from prime contractor Airbus Defence and Space to Orion prime contractor Lockheed Martin, the two primary elements of the Artemis 2 Orion Service Module are now being bolted together.

Lockheed Martin is processing Orion flight hardware for Artemis 2 and Artemis 3 as a part of their Assembly, Test, and Launch Operations (ATLO) in the Armstrong Operations and Checkout (O&C) Building at KSC. As they process the Artemis 2 Orion Crew and Service Modules to be mated next year, the ATLO team also received the next Crew Module (CM) pressure vessel and is also simultaneously beginning build-up of the Crew Module and Crew Module Adapter (CMA) structures for Artemis 3.

What If Humanity Became an Interstellar Species?

Posted by in categories: education, space travel

What if humanity grew to be so technologically advanced that we were able to leave our Solar System and spread across interstellar space? Would we hop from one exoplanet to another, colonizing everything on our way? How could we make traveling across the Universe possible?

Elon Musk’s Revolutionary NEW School Revealed!

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, education, Elon Musk, media & arts, robotics/AI, space travel

Ad Astra School is the experimental school that Elon Musk started in one of SpaceX’s factories to give an education to his own children and selected children of SpaceX employees. The future of work will require a set of skills that are not taught in schools today. The future of work will involve robots and Artificial Intelligence collaborating with humans. The Astra Nova School’s pillars include caring about community, focusing on student experiences, and sharing the work they do with the world.
Here students learn about simulations, case studies, fabrication and design projects, labs, and corporate collaboration. In general, school systems are rigid. They are more system-centric than student-centric. Astra Nova is changing that by creating a philosophy of student centricity, a value for individual abilities, praising curiosity, and encouraging problem-solving and critical thinking.

The Moon’s Top Layer Has Enough Oxygen To Sustain 8 Billion People for 100,000 Years

Posted by in categories: government, space travel

Alongside advances in space exploration, we’ve recently seen much time and money invested into technologies that could allow effective space resource utilization. And at the forefront of these efforts has been a laser-sharp focus on finding the best way to produce oxygen on the Moon.

In october, the australian space agency and NASA

Established in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government that succeeded the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). It is responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research. It’s vision is “To discover and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity.”

Can Spinlaunch Throw Rockets Into Space?

Posted by in categories: engineering, space travel

With the recent COP talks in mind, is this the Eco alternative to rocketry? And are there perhaps others?

I talked about Spinlaunch a few years ago, they wanted to reduce space launch costs by throwing the launch vehicles out of a spinning launcher at hypersonic speeds. I was somewhat skeptical as to the chances of solving the engineering problems inherent in this, but recently they demonstrated a mach 1 launch using their 1/3 scale launcher, so they’re already making progress on developing a viable launch syste.
