Starship is cleaner with methane and LOX.I'm glad the launch and rendezvous went well! Congratulations all around!
Also, the SpaceX rocket technology is interesting. I suspect they are looking into cleaner launches using only liquid oxygen. The rocket already uses liquid oxygen and kerosene, so I suspect it's just a matter of changing the engines to use liquid oxygen only.
Additionally, it's really smart that they are recovering and reusing the components. The vertical rocket landings are amazing!
I hope the rest of the mission goes well.
True, for a typical combustion main rocket engine.Somebody has sleep in chemistry class. What are the three necessities of the fire triangle.
Oxygen, heat, and fuel
Bonk you with the text book!
Say with me: "Oxygen, heat, and fuel!"
Is Hopkins still sleeping in there? That has to be a bit unnerving...Resilience gave everyone on the ISS a big fright yesterday:
