Will Starship Make The Artemis Program Better Than Apollo?

  • Will Starship Make The Artemis Program Better Than Apollo?


    NASA's making some big moves to finally get humans back to the moon for the first time in over 50 years. The Artemis program is shaping up with checks written and hardware built! So how does a 21st Century program to the moon compare to that of the 1960's?

    In Today's video, we’re going to answer the question, why does NASA think Artemis will be a sustainable program when SLS is sooooo dang expensive AND it’ll take at least two launches to get humans and their lunar landers to the moon.

    This CAN’T be more sustainable than Apollo, right? Well, we didn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the costs, so today we’re going to really dive into the total costs, including development, infrastructure and hardware by giving SLS and Orion a full cost audit.

    But we’ll even show you how the Apollo program and Artemis mission profiles differ including the specific orbits and rendezvous and everything required to get humans to the surface of the moon and even talk about the upgraded safety considerations and hardware involved.

    Once we look at all these details, we can answer the question, 50 years later, is the Artemis program actually an improvement over the Apollo program or is NASA going completely in the wrong direction when returning to the moon?

  • SLS VS Starship: Why does SLS still exist?!


    NASA just announced the lunar landers for the Artemis program and to everyone’s surprise, SpaceX’s MASSIVE Starship is actually one of the landers NASA chose alongside Blue Origin and Dynetics.

    And this is bringing up a lot of questions, some of which we’ll answer in my next video, “Should NASA just cancel SLS and use Starship and / or other commercial launchers for Artemis?”. But today I think we need to settle a lot of debates here first about these two rockets and now more than ever, it’s time we truly pit them head to head.

  • Apollo vs Artemis Program: How Do They Compare?


    NASA’s Apollo vs Artemis Program: How Do They Compare?

    #nasa #starship

    With an eventual goal of establishing long-term exploration of the Moon and preparing for human exploration of Mars, NASA's Artemis Program is a big step towards the world's dreams of intergalactic transportation and colonies across planets.

    Of course, it's not quite a guarantee or promise towards either of those anytime soon, although it's a generational leap towards something big. To many, the last Artemis-sized space exploration undertaking would have been the Apollo Program, which had most famously taken three astronauts to the Moon in 1969.

    The issue comparing Artemis and Apollo lies in the changes in the 52 years since, both technological and political, leading Artemis' final goals to be quite different from Apollo's. While they both consisted primarily of taking humans to the Moon, that was about it for Apollo. And while that's more than an astonishing achievement, especially for 1969, it's nothing compared to Artemis' goals.

    The difference in the two programs can be seen across the 1961 quote from President Kennedy and a 2020 quote from NASA. President Kennedy famously said, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.

    And NASA's? —a plan of establishing long-term exploration of Earth's nearest neighbor and preparing for human exploration of Mars. Both lines are without a doubt incredibly aspirational, although there's something that brings a childlike wonder to NASA's goal.

    Knowing that NASA has goals to establish some form of a national base on the Moon, then to use that knowledge to explore Mars, is incredible. But, again, it's important not to understate how revolutionary Apollo was either; it just seems slightly less impressive to many, thanks to Artemis' larger scope and Apollo's more-than-50-year gap.

    Nonetheless, it should be pretty easy to see, on the surface, that Artemis is very different from Apollo. However, there are a few more differences, hidden underneath the surface.

    Things have sort of just fallen in place for Artemis to exist. NASA hasn't done anything revolutionary relating to the Moon in half a century, the public interest is creeping up, and billionaires like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are ready to pour billions into private programs of their own
    These private options range from launchers, reusable vehicles, landers, and anything that brings us closer to the Moon and Mars. Speaking of which, there lies the second major difference: the programs' final goal. After all, America's plan for Apollo was to beat the Soviets and send the first man to the Moon. That was it — just one-up Soviet Russia.
    Artemis is a bit more ambitious if you haven't guessed already. Instead of focusing primarily on geopolitics, NASA is instead looking into helping all of Earth. With threats of overpopulation, starvation, climate change, and so much more, people have increasingly looked at the potential solutions space offers.

    So, what's closer than Mars? The correct answer is the Moon. Through the Artemis Program, NASA plans to revitalize the craze for space and create a pathway to establish Moon and Mars settlements. Something lasting is presented by Artemis, an important aspect that Apollo lacked.
    Sure, the States will forever be the first to send a man to the Moon, although nothing will really come from that. Artemis though? The Phase 1 funding requirements are literally a list of their own... we're looking at:
    • the Orion capsule,
    • the super heavy-lift Space Launch System,
    • brand-new Lunar Suits,
    • new methods of exploring space,
    • and a Lunar Discovery and Exploration Program.

    Going further, NASA plans for colonies, lunar infrastructure, an entire Base Camp, the Gateway space station, robotic missions, and so much more.

  • NASA Will Spend $2,941,394,557 On SpaceXs Massive Lunar Starship Lander!!!


    Many people were surprised yesterday when news leaked that NASA was awarding all the funding from the Artemis Human Landing System program to SpaceX with its massive Lunar Starship project. SpaceX's price tag is about $2.9 billion with a commitment to fund half of it themselves. While most space watchers could see why SpaceX had made it to the final round most of us didn't expect it to be the only choice because it was so unlike what NASA was asking for.
    However the HLS program only got 1/3 of the money it needed from Congress and with time marching on NASA had to make a decision and the only option with a price tag that fit was SpaceX.

  • Return To The Moon: What Changes In The Artemis Project?


    NASA officially announced it selected SpaceX’s Starship to land humans on the Moon as part of the agency’s Artemis program.
    Under the terms of the award, SpaceX will fly Starship to the lunar surface without a crew at least once before transporting astronauts. NASA says there is still a chance that mission could happen in 2024, although the agency is currently conducting a review of the entire Artemis program.
    What prompted NASA to make this choice? And how will the structure and timing of the Artemis project now change?

    First of all it must be said that investing in Starship will help NASA return to the Moon, but it will also do something more consequential. Starship is a Mars ship! By choosing Starship for the Moon, NASA is investing in the Starship program itself, providing SpaceX with a cash infusion for the same technology and systems it needs to get to the Red Planet - a true “Moon-to-Mars” strategy if there ever was one.
    However, it is also true that this decision is not without risk:
    NASA previously selected at least two companies to provide commercial cargo and crew services to the International Space Station in order to preserve competition, control cost, and ensure redundancy. By selecting only SpaceX, NASA is putting all its eggs in one basket.
    But SpaceX has previously delivered on its NASA contracts. In the past 20 years they have grown from a small startup to the world’s premier aerospace company, launching cargo and astronauts at a pace commensurate with national space agencies. NASA now places the lives of its astronauts in the hands of SpaceX to reach the ISS, relies on the company to supply the space station, and places its precious scientific missions atop their rockets.
    If Starship succeeds in returning humans to the lunar surface, it will be the ultimate vindication of the public-private partnership model. NASA will gain a lunar lander at a fraction of the cost of the Apollo-era Lunar Module, and SpaceX - a private entity - would gain independent access to the lunar surface, a locale previously the domain of a single nation.
    And in the same fell swoop, both organizations would step toward Mars.
    Seen this way, it might make sense...what do you guys think?
    To understand how this decision was arrived at, however, one must take a step back and reconsider the policy steps that preceded it.
    Humans have not traveled beyond Earth orbit since the Apollo program ended in 1972. NASA has officially been trying to change that since 2004, when President George Bush announced what became the agency’s back-to-the-Moon Constellation program. Do you remember that?

  • NASA Picks SpaceX for Artemis Human Lunar Lander Development


    NASA is getting ready to send astronauts to explore more of the Moon as part of the Artemis program, and the agency has selected SpaceX to continue development of the first commercial human lander that will safely carry the next two American astronauts to the lunar surface.

    The agency’s powerful Space Launch System rocket will launch four astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft for their multi-day journey to lunar orbit. There, two crew members will transfer to the SpaceX human landing system (HLS) for the final leg of their journey to the surface of the Moon. After approximately a week exploring the surface, they will board the lander for their short trip back to orbit where they will return to Orion and their colleagues before heading back to Earth.

    The first mission: Artemis 1
    Artemis 1, formally called Exploration Mission -1, represents the official start of the program missions. Currently, it is still scheduled to start at the end of 2021, but it seems that even this date may be delayed, motivated by the emergency, but actually due to the still uncertain results of the Green Run test of the Space Launch System. The launch could thus slip until the spring of 2022.
    Very interesting is the CubeSat mission called Near-Earth Asteroid Scout, which is basically a technology demonstrator of a controllable solar sail spacecraft.
    The second mission: Artemis 2
    The Artemis 2 mission will be the first with 4 astronauts on board. The objective is to perform a flyover of the Moon with a crew on board, but it will not yet descend to the surface.
    The Orion capsule will perform a single orbit around the Moon, coming within 7500 km of the surface at its closest point
    The third mission: Artemis 3
    Artemis 3, which optimistically will launch in 2025, will be the first mission to bring a woman to the lunar surface, possibly with a black astronaut.

    Officially, yes… NASA is still holding on to the possibility of a 2021 launch date for the debut flight of its Space Launch System rocket.
    In early September, in fact, a spokesman for the agency publicly stated that NASA is working towards a launch for the Artemis I mission by the end of this year.
    However, several unofficial sources are certain that the Artemis I mission will not depart until next spring, also assuming a likely shift to next summer. The space agency, in fact, according to the same sources would already be delayed by about two months compared to the targets that it had set for testing and for integration of the rocket at the Kennedy Space Center; and pre-flight tests still seem to be beyond coming...
    Recall then that, to aggravate the situation, there is also the slowdown in the development of the Human Landing System, the vehicle that will carry the crew of Artemis III from lunar orbit to the surface.

  • What Bill Nelson Said About SpaceXs Starship for Artemis Mission Is Just Mind-blowing!


    SpaceX #Starship live
    SpaceX News #SpaceX
    SpaceX Starship #Elonmusk
    SpaceX Live

    In a November 9th press conference, NASA leaders have begun to publicly celebrate the end of seven months of Blue Origin litigation and disruption to its Human Landing System (HLS). A federal court’s dismissal of that lawsuit means that the space agency can finally get back to work with SpaceX on its Starship Moon lander.

    When a New York Times reporter asked a hard question about the possibility of sidestepping Orion and SLS to get astronauts onto SpaceX’s Starship lunar lander, Administrator Nelson – having just repeatedly discussed Starship – fell back on an old boilerplate statement that “there’s only one rocket capable of doing this” – “this” being launching humans to the Moon and returning them to Earth and that “one rocket” being SLS. Association admin Jim Free also exhibited similar confusion, stating that “the architecture…just wouldn’t work.”

    As a result of Artemis, NASA will be able to establish a sustainable human presence on the Moon by 2028 to uncover new scientific discoveries, demonstrate new technological advancements, and lay the foundation for private companies to build a lunar economy.

    One Giant Leap Celebration | Apollo 11 Moon Landing 50 Years Later

    Exactly 50 years ago on July 20, the world heard these famous words as Neil Armstrong lowered onto the surface of the Moon: 'That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.'”

    NASA estimates it will need $20 billion to $30 billion for moon landing, administrator says

    The space agency will need an estimated $20 billion to $30 billion over the next five years for its moon project, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told CNN Business on Thursday. That would mean adding another $4 billion to $6 billion per year, on average, to the agency's budget, which is already expected to be about $20 billion annually.

  • Priming NASAs Artemis I for Launch to the Moon


    Every element of NASA’s Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System rocket, and ground systems is now at Kennedy Space Center -- the final stop on planet Earth before the uncrewed Artemis I mission around the Moon. These critical components are being primed for flight through final assembly, stacking, and fueling operations. The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, the Artemis I flight test will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate our commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.

  • FAA’s Crazy Decision to STOP SpaceXs Orbital Starship Test Flight!


    FAA’s Crazy Decision to STOP SpaceX's Orbital Starship Test Flight!Subscribe to our channel

    SpaceX is a huge name in the aerospace industry, so much so that the company was able to revolutionize the entire aerospace industry by providing reusable rockets that did bring down the cost of rocket launches, and that's exactly the reason why so many companies want to partner up with SpaceX for their satellite launches. All for the right reasons, because SpaceX's offerings are more affordable than every other company out there, and SpaceX does have flight-ready hardware, unlike a few other companies. So when can we expect a SpaceX orbital test flight for the Starship?

    The real reason why SpaceX exists today is because of Elon Musk's goal to make humans an interplanetary species by putting humans onto the Red Planet. You might think this to be Elon Musk's extremely ambitious dream, but that is not the case because SpaceX is working on a human lander system with their Starship that will also be responsible for transporting humans and cargo to the Red Planet. The best part about the Starship is that a modified version of the Starship will be used for NASA's Artemis project, which will be NASA's ambitious project that will put humans once again onto the lunar surface after about 50 years ever since the last crewed Apollo mission. This time around, NASA will be putting the first female astronaut and the first astronaut of colour onto the South Pole of the lunar surface, and we can expect this to happen by 2024, even though there can be some extension of this deadline, considering the fact that blue Origin's lawsuit against NASA did cause some delays because Blue origin was not happy about NASA awarding the $2.9 billion contract to SpaceX for developing the human lander system for the Artemis Project.

  • How the Apollo Spacecraft works: Part 1


    The only spacecraft that has landed astronauts on the moon. In this video we focus on the Saturn V rocket which launched the Apollo Spacecraft into orbit.

    Here's the link to part 2:

    Follow me on social media:

    For the curious minded:
    -Not every Apollo mission happened exactly like this (for example the exact times for stage separation were different).
    -The day of the launch, the Astronauts (and a few support people) were the only ones with 3 miles of the launch site.
    -There were 13 successful launches of the Saturn V rocket.

  • NASA Artemis Lunar Lander Selection Surprises Many


    Five contractors submitted proposals for the Artemis Human Landing system in November, and yesterday the final 3 were announced and give cash awards to work on their concepts before the final selection. The three winners were Blue Origin, Dynetics and SpaceX but many were surprised that not only did SpaceX propose using Starship, a vehicle vastly more ambitious than required, but, NASA included them as a finalist. This marks the first time NASA has put money directly torwards Starship development.

    Most believe the other two options are the safe bets, but this give SpaceX another 10 months to show significant progress on Starship and SuperHeavy development. If all goes well it might very well be used to take NASA astronauts to the moon as part of Artemis.

  • NASA 2024 moon landing jeopardized because space suits arent ready


    CNBC's Morgan Brennan reports that a delay in updating space suits may mean a delay in NASA getting to the moon. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

    Elon Musk offered SpaceX’s services to help NASA make its next-generation spacesuits, after a watchdog report on Tuesday said the agency’s current program is behind schedule and will cost more than $1 billion.

    “SpaceX could do it if need be,” Musk wrote in a tweet.

    Musk’s company has developed and made flight suits for astronauts who launch into orbit in SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft. The flight suits are primarily designed to protect the astronauts in case of a fire inside of the spacecraft, or if the cabin depressurizes. Building spacesuits would be a more complex and challenging endeavor, given the need to survive outside of a spacecraft in the harsh environment of space.

    NASA spokesperson Monica Witt, in a statement to CNBC on Musk’s offer, pointed to the agency’s request last month to companies in the space industry for feedback on “purchasing commercial spacesuits, hardware, and services.”

    Musk’s proposal came in response to a report by NASA’s inspector general – which is the investigative office which audits the agency for fraud and mismanagement – on the work being done to develop a new line of Extravehicular Mobility Units, which are informally called spacesuits.

    Astronauts on board the International Space Station use spacesuits “designed 45 years ago for the Space Shuttle” program, the report noted. The IG also highlighted that those spacesuits have been “refurbished and partially redesigned” over the past decades to continue working.

    The space agency has started three different spacesuit programs since 2007, the inspector general found, and has spent $420.1 million on development since then. Additionally, the report said NASA “plans to invest approximately $625.2 million more” on development, testing and qualification to complete a suit for a demonstration on the ISS and two suits for the crewed mission to the moon – for a total cost of “over $1 billion” through 2025.

    Beyond the soaring cost, the inspector general said delays “attributable to funding shortfalls, COVID-19 impacts, and technical challenges” have eliminated the chance the spacesuits are ready in time. The spacesuits will “not be ready for flight until April 2025 at the earliest,” the report said. NASA originally said the spacesuits would be ready by March 2023.

    NASA needs new spacesuits for its Artemis program, which was announced by former President Donald Trump’s administration and has continued under President Joe Biden. Artemis is expected to consist of multiple missions to the moon’s orbit and surface in the years ahead, with NASA aiming to land astronauts on the lunar body by 2024. Although NASA has stuck to the 2024 goal, the inspector general has warned repeatedly that the schedule is threatened by several major programs that are key to Artemis’ success.

    Musk earlier this year called the 2024 timeline “actually doable,” after SpaceX became one of the critical pieces of Artemis by winning a $2.9 billion contract to use its Starship rocket to deliver astronauts to the moon’s surface.

    The spacesuits have a multitude of different components, which the inspector general noted are supplied by 27 different companies. That’s a point Musk also highlighted, saying in a tweet that it “seems like too many cooks in the kitchen.”

    SpaceX did not respond to CNBC’s request for comment on whether the company has begun work on its own spacesuits. While the company hasn’t publicly disclosed spacesuit plans, it is one of nearly 50 companies that expressed interest in NASA’s program to purchase privately developed spacesuits and spacewalk services.

  • Artemis rocket core stage moves to vehicle assembly building


  • Artemis Program Compared To Apollo Program


    What are the major differences between the goals of Artemis and Apollo. Fifty years ago we landed on the moon. NASA has endorsed a new program - Artemis - to land astronauts on the moon by 2024 and include a woman in the crew. I worked on the Apollo program for ten years, from 1963 to 1972 designing and developing the Inertial Navigation System used for the Command & Lunar Modules while at MIT Instrumentation/Draper Laboratory. MIT had a contract with NASA. The Apollo Inertial Navigation System include the Apollo Guidance Computer. In this part 1 video, we look at the strategic and philosophical differences between the two programs. In Part 2, we will look at the equipment and systems differences and how we will achieve the Artemis goals to return to the moon by 2024.

  • Are You Ready For The Next Moon Landing? SLS Explained | Artemis Program


    Has innovation in NASA stalled? Is NASA’s new Moon rocket too expensive? Or is the Artemis Program the ideal way to return to the Moon as quickly as possible? These are some of the questions we are going to explore in this video about the Space Launch System (SLS). This future moon rocket has drawn a lot of attention for its shortcomings and delays, but it’s finally being assembled for launch this year. Yes! The first SLS launch is coming! It’s a good time to look at the history of NASA’s latest rocket to get a sense of why SLS exists, what it hopes to achieve and what it’s future might look like. Since the creation of SLS, private companies have begun to dominate the launch industry and are able to provide cheaper rockets, so another idea we explore is that this might be the final NASA designed rocket, the end of an era that started back in the 1960s. How SLS compares to other rockets like the Saturn V that was used for the Apollo 11 moon landings and more.

  • Lecture 8.1: Artemis and Apollo


  • SpaceX Starship Mk1 Flying Soon & NASAs Inflatable Gateway for Artemis Moon Program


    We talk about the progress of the SpaceX Starship Mk1 prototype in Boca Chica as well as plans for the Boca Chica Space Port itself. Then we also give more details on the potential Mars landing sites for Starship, plans for a promising moon space elevator, and updates on NASA's Artemis moon landing program.

    ------------------------- NAVIGATION THROUGH THE VIDEO: -------------------------
    1:12 Before talking about Starship, we'd first like to go a bit more into detail regarding the potential landing sites of future Starship missions on Mars. We find that many of the proposed landing sites are in a region known as Erebus Montes, right between Arcadia Planitia, and Amazonis Planitia. Besides the advantages mentioned in our last space video, this region would offer even more advantages, which we would like to discuss in detail.
    5:29 The Japanese billionaire, entrepreneur, and art collector Yusaku Maezawa sold most of his company to free up time to train for the 2023 dearmoon mission, a round trip around the moon with Starship.
    6:29 On the topic of Starship, the SpaceX Starship prototypes are both nearing completion, with the Mk1 soon ready to get the nose cone installed. Fortunately, the SpaceX Starship Mk2 survived Dorian undamaged, because they put the SpaceX Starship inside a wind-shelter, among other reasons, as a precautionary measure to protect the prototype from high winds. When finished, the SpaceX Starship scale will be incredible, standing 55 meters tall.
    7:07 We also briefly talk about the three phases of Boca Chica spaceport, which will see a flight to an altitude of 20 km in the near future, maybe with luck as early as October (Elon time). We have no further news of Elon's SpaceX Starship presentation 2019, but we are sure that the SpaceX Starship specs will be absolutely incredible, once the prototypes are finished and ready to demonstrate the SpaceX Starship thrust of the extremely powerful raptor engines.
    7:51 We also want to talk a bit more about the Artemis moon program. NASA is currently investigating the possibility of using Bigelow Aerospace inflatable modules as the key modules for the lunar gateway station. We hope to see this happen, as we think that inflatable habitats make a lot of sense.
    9:22 Then we also want to see what the current status of NASA's SLS rocket is, and if they will be able to make it in time for the planned Artemis 1 launch in mid 2020. But we still suspect that we will see a SpaceX Starship moon landing before the Artemis 3 moon landing in 2024. This might result in quite an embarrassment for NASA, should they land later on the moon than SpaceX. We included this in a little animated joke, also visualizing the insane SpaceX Starship size comparison to the tiny little NASA lunar lander.
    11:14 And lastly, we also want to talk about a highly interesting concept, recently formulated in a paper, namely the concept of a moon elevator. We think this idea is brilliant, as it would allow to transport crew and cargo to and from the moon very cheaply, and free up all the Starships to fully concentrate on Mars.

  • SpaceX Starlink Update | NASA Artemis Program is Looking for Alternative Moon Sites. WHY?


    SpaceX Starlink next Launch Update | NASA Artemis Program is Looking for Alternative Moon Sites.
    SpaceX wants to take some time with its starlink satellite launch as previously the launch was scrubbed due to bad weather. The company will wait for a suitable weather and sea condition to launch SpaceX’s next 60 Starlink satellites.
    Australia blasts off its first commercial, space-capable rocket from the Koonibba test range located in the far-west coast of Southern Australia.
    NASA’s Artemis programs initially aim to deliver astronauts on the South Pole of the Moon by year 2024, but according to the officials, they might need to take a step back if the mission includes too many risks.

  • Get Ready For Artemis


    Work is underway at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center for America’s future rocket that will head back to the Moon. Under the Artemis program, NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon. The first step in this series of increasingly complex missions is Artemis I, a test flight for the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft. During Artemis I, Orion will launch atop the 212-foot SLS and fly farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown. The approximately three-week, uncrewed mission will take the spacecraft thousands of miles past the Moon, about 280,000 miles from Earth.
