Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space travel

SpaceX is making a 480-foot-tall giant robot with arms that will catch giant rockets.

It is insanely cool. Sci-fi made real.

Sleeper Ships

Posted by in categories: cryonics, space travel

Get Started with Squarespace today: http://squarespace.com/isaacarthur.
To journey across the stars requires voyages of centuries or more, ensuring the crew will be long dead by the time they arrive. If you want your crew available to colonize new worlds after their interstellar voyage, you either have to extend their lives, train their descendants, or freeze them till they arrive. We will examine the third option day, freezing people with cryonics, using hibernation, or suspended animation, or some other form of stasis the future might offer.

Humanity getting lost in the MATRIOSHKA Brain🤖

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, space travel

A Matrioshka Brain is a supermassive structure in space consisting of processors and connected to each other into a massive computer around a sun harnessing its energy completely. So far we haven’t built one as we don’t have the technology for it but when we do the question will be if people will be lost in the vast computing power of the Matrishka brain.

Japanese Team Invents Moon Base With Artificial Gravity

Posted by in category: space travel

Getting to the Moon isn’t impossible anymore, but humans have yet to establish a long-term living space on its surface. If we want to become an interplanetary species, however, Japanese researchers say we’ll probably need their newly designed Moon base with artificial gravity.

A team of Kyoto University experts and Kajima Corporation’s construction wizzes unveiled mockups of the conical, rotating structure at a conference last week, showcasing what looks like a glass utopia full of happy people, some of them even driving boats around the water-covered interior of the building.

Beam Powered Spaceships

Posted by in category: space travel

Sign up with Skillshare for 2 months of Free classes: https://skl.sh/isaacarthur11
In order to get into space, we require either huge amounts of rocket fuel or dangerously powerful energy sources, making personal spacecraft a technology limited to science fiction. But by harnessing beamed power sources to run engines, we may be able to create a spaceplane cheap enough and safe enough that anyone could have one in the future.

SpaceX outfits Starship, Super Heavy with dozens of Raptor engines

Posted by in category: space travel

New photos shared by SpaceX show that the company has nearly finished installing a total of 39 upgraded Raptor engines on a new Starship and its Super Heavy booster.

Those prototypes – known as Ship 24 and Booster 7 – could be tasked with supporting Starship’s first orbital launch attempt sometime later this year if both make it through upcoming test campaigns without major issues. Whether that’s a probable outcome is still uncertain but recent progress suggests that it won’t take long for the prospects of both prototypes to shift into clearer focus.

After several rounds of proof testing and two trips to and from SpaceX’s Starbase, Texas orbital launch site (OLS) in March, April, and May, Super Heavy Booster 7 (B7) made its third trip to the pad on June 23rd.

Cheating Reality

So many of hopes and dreams for colonizing space rely on faster than light travel, and yet the ability to move between stars in moment seems against the laws of reality… but perhaps we can break those rules.
