"Acohol Absorber" Double-A's & BeerBert's stinky shmear snipped.
Post by Edward Prochak
Let's compare that to NASA development of Saturn V
SpaceX has the knowledge gained by the NASA program.
SpaceX has the computer technology undreamed of in 1960's.
Apollo Guidance computer - 43 KiloHertz & 64 KB
and the fastest at the time was Cray 6600 - 10 MegaHertz
with specialized design.
Elon can put many small controllers with power that
would outpace the Cray at fraction of the cost of
the Apollo Guidance computer.
And with all that power
SpaceX still so far has launched NO human crews!
NASA has to please over 500 senate and congress members,
executive officials, and general public.
SpaceX has to please primarily Elon Musk.
Given the constraints NASA works under,
they outperformed SpaceX IMHO.
Pretty good tripe, yours, Prochak.
Given your NOT so "IMHO" consider tho'
that what you read about the issue at hand
is merely what NASA & Space-X WANT
you to know.
It'll take a long time until the events behind
the curtain, the grafts, favors, payola, hooker
services, nepotisms etc. etc, will surface...
and worse... at such a time, they will be
covered up with/by conspiracy theories.
Ask anybody who has actually worked at
NASA or Space-X and you'll get verification
about the way these games are played.
Take care, Prochak. Carry on.
