SpaceX Super Heavy Booster Could Be Flown Every Hour


Elon Musk had a Starship and Heavy Booster update.

The SpaceX Super Heavy Booster will be eventually flown every hour. It will boost for two minutes and return in four minutes and refuel in 30 minutes.

The SpaceX Starships that go to orbit will be flown every 6 to 8 hours. They will have to go at least one orbit and each orbit takes 90 minutes.

The point-to-point Starships going from California to Singapore could be flown ten to twenty times per day.

Long Range travel on Earth for cargo and then for people will be cheaper via rocket.

SpaceX has to develop orbital refilling for Moon and Mars missions. Liquid oxygen is 3.5 tons per ton of fuel.

If there were significant delays with getting FAA launch approval, then SpaceX could build the Cape Kennedy launch site in 6-8 months. They already have flight approval for Cape Kennedy.

They should have three launch facilities by the end of 2022. (Boca Chica, Cape Kennedy, and one of the Ocean platforms).

They are scaling up Raptor 2 to one a day production and then eventually to three a day.

They should be at seven Raptor 2 per week or better by next month.

By the end of 2022, they should be able to make a full stack (Starship and booster) once per month.

Future of Electric Cars is Locked

We know what will happen in the next two years with electric cars because we know what electric car factories and battery factories have already been built. Electric Car Factories take time to build and scale production. Battery factories and battery supplies take time to establish. This is the same as in 1943 in WW2.…

Easier and Safer to Use Carbon Nanotubes in Polymer Nanocomposite

A research team from Skoltech, Aalto University, and Kurnakov Institute has recently developed a new, versatile and simple approach to using carbon nanotubes for manufacturing carbon nanotube-polymer nanocomposites. The method is reported in Carbon and involves making briquettes — dense packages of carbon nanotube powders. Nanocomposites made with briquettes perform equally well as those made…

BYD and Other China Electric Car Makers in 2022

BYD has increased its 2022 battery-electric (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) car production target from 1.2 million to 1.5 million units. BYD’s old target was about half BEV and half hybrid (600K each). I would expect the new target to be 800K BEV and 700K PHEV. In terms of battery electric cars, Tesla is…

EV Battery Capacity Pipeline for 2031 is Over 7 Terawatt Hours

The global capacity of lithium-ion battery gigafactories is set to surpass seven terawatt hours (TWh) by 2031, according to Benchmark’s Gigafactory Assessment. This milestone comes just four months after the ten-year pipeline exceeded six TWh in April. Over half of the global capacity is 2031 is controlled by just nine companies. China is set to…
