Boeing Starliner Delayed Til at Least April 2023


Boeing human crewed Starliner mission has been delayed from February to April 2023 or later.

There continue to be technical problems and there are now new concerns about the parachutes.

The continuing problems raise concerns that any human crew should be risked flying in Starliner.

Due to delays and technical problems, Boeing has taken a number of charges against earnings for the Starliner program by 2022. This includes $410 million in 2020, $185 million in October 2021, and $288 million through the third quarter of 2022

SpaceX’s CCtCap contract values each seat on a Crew Dragon flight to be between US$60–67 million, while the face value of each seat has been estimated by NASA’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) to be around US$55 million. This contrasts with the 2014 Soyuz launch price of US$76 million per seat for NASA astronauts.

SpaceX has one crewed test flight in 2020 and is on the seventh human operational mission with Crew Dragon. SpaceX will have five human-crewed missions in 2023.

SpaceX Crew Dragon is operating safely and is more affordable than Starliner.

Germany Slowly Getting off Russian Gas By Not Restarting Nuclear

There is some mostly empty talk from Germany about reducing imports of Russian energy. Germany plans to stop almost all Russian oil imports this year and broadly wean itself off Russian gas by mid-2024. Germany could restart three nuclear reactors and get off Russian gas this year.

Algorithm to Improve Reconstruction Exoplanet Images from Gravity Lensing

Going beyond physical limitations of telescopes, Stanford University astrophysicists have been working on a new conceptual imaging technique that would be 1,000 times more precise than the strongest imaging technology currently in use. By taking advantage of gravity’s warping effect on space-time, called lensing, scientists could potentially manipulate this phenomenon to create imaging far more…

SpaceX Revenue in 2022 and Projected to 2023

There is another relatively thorough attempt to analyze SpaceX revenue. Payload Space underestimated Starlink revenue in October 2022 for 2022 at less than $1B and then had to revise up $1.87B. They are still underestimating for 2023 but it is relatively up to date if SpaceX is unable to really scale Starlink monthly dish production…
