Seven reusable BE-4 engines generating 3.85 million pounds of thrust power the first stage designed to launch 25 times and land safely down range on a moving ship.

    Who knew nothing about how to design technology like Elon Musk. They bought the idea of some engineer without checking on it be practical. And you should add Sir Richard Branson and VG to the list.

    Then you don’t know too many businessmen and confuse them with the MBA bean counters.

  • Andrew Tubbiolo

    You just admitted my point. You started this exchange saying that a successful CEO could not fall prey to a smooth talking pitch man. Think about what you said when you say ”
    They bought into the idea of some engineer like Burt Rutan without checking on if it was practical.”.Man! What about due diligence? Isn’t that something taught in most CEO majors? Don’t you teach your student CEO’s about that? Dude!

    what? some of Boeings best work in aviation came after the 747 and Pan Am

  • Robert G. Oler

    lol

  • Robert G. Oler

    based on what? there is no evidence that the time to process has gotten significantly less, the cost to process or that the process is speeding up

  • Robert G. Oler

    you dont think if say the booster was ready in two weeks that Musk wouldnot say that? seriously. this is not inspection this is refurbishment and thats not cost effective

  • Robert G. Oler

    the only evidence so far is that reuse is not reuse but refurbishment and there is no evidence that it is efficient

  • Robert G. Oler

    Which you probably won’t be able to see unless you are a stockholder
    since it is a competitive advantage, like actual launch costs, you don’t
    share with the world.

    what? you dont share that you have a reusable vehicle? a vehicle that can fly and be made ready for reuse in say X days…you dont share that? are you joking

    incompetent endgame

    there was no end game that worked in Iraq…it is not possible for a foreign power to do what we were trying to do outside of total war…

    Love the landing with the ship moving. That will actually calm the rocking effect.

    Actually, the SST made plenty of sense. It had enough range to cross the Atlantic AND pacific.
    In addition, it was supposed to hold 250-300, which was much bigger than the Concorde.
    As such, SST would have worked.
    Now, Boom and a few others will make it work, but ~50 pax, and a fraction of the fuel/pax that Concorde used.

  • Lee

    If it would have worked, why did Boeing not pursue it?

  • windbourne

    Because they did pay a penny into it. The feds did.
