GeekSpeak subject for Saturday January 1st at noon SLT: 2022, the year of the Starship!


Early this year we will see the Starship from SpaceX take off.  It will be one of the most powerful things you will ever see. 

Starship is bigger than the Saturn-5 rocket, and it can land.  It will be able to carry 150 tons of cargo to the moon.  It has several contracts already for commercial launches.  Future launches will catch the returning booster rockets with a giant tower equipped with catch arms so that they can launch again after only a few hours for refueling. 

This will get humans into space big time if we are ever to go at all.  So 2022 is the year in which we become a space-going species.  Hold your helmet, it will go very fast.  Join us at noon SLT on January 1st to discuss it.  Bring your kerbal friends.

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
