Re: Elon Musk $44 Billion Twitter deal

In related news, the Starship launched today underwent Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly eight minutes after launch.

That’s a shame, because the more cost-effective ways we have of getting into space, the better.

It’s not really a shame - SpaceX’s development model is rapid iteration. If the second launch goes perfectly then great, but if not, no problem - they aren’t NASA and they haven’t spent 100s of billions on cautious R&D in such a way that it absolutely has to go 100% right first (or second) time.

In this instance the primary mission objective was to test the hot staging process they’ve devised in order to successfully get the starship upper stage away from the booster. This process involves firing the ship’s engines while it is still attached to the booster (hence ‘hot’ staging), which was indicated as being necessary from data procured from their first test flight earlier this year. However, the first stage booster was not initially designed with hot staging in mind. They added a hot staging ring to the stack to help vent exhaust from the second stage as it lights up, but what they weren’t able to do - without physically test flying the thing - was to establish where the upper part of the first stage might fail if exposed to a rocket plume.

They now have a better understanding of how to redesign the first stage to cope with hot staging. This will be incorporated into the third flight.

It’s a joke, you utter numpty. It’s a satire on military language that goes back decades but these days it is used across the new commercial space industries and is popularised especially by SpaceX because its iterative development process means a lot of stuff blows up.

You might wish me to attend my local Minor Injuries Unit to have an MRI to attempt to locate my sense of humour, which appears (to your eyes) to have been misplaced…

Re: Elon Musk $44 Billion Twitter deal

Can I suggest the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics at the University of Reading?

As Nigel Molesworth said, any fule kno that humour is a vital component of human socio-affective and cognitive functioning

It's quite near you, and they are doing cutting-edge research on MRI scanning and Neurocognitive Development, so if anyone can help find your sense of humour, they're probably your best bet.

Good luck!

Unlike your sense of humour, which appears severely limited.

Maybe you should stay out of topics if you cant handle an obvious joke.

Ha ha - very funny. Plus what's to handle - this is just a forum where nothing matters except the snide remarks of some.

I wouldn't call it a Minor Injury ... so much worse than that

It was posted at 07:41am local time (where he is), so he must have been drinking through…
