It got pretty much all the science wrong and was overly pretentious and boring to my taste. Tried to be 2001, ended up being that movie-in-a-movie Playback Time from Mr. Bean's Holiday.

Wouldn't call it a waste of my money. A friend and I had a blast discussing and dissing the movie afterwards. Sure, it's a bad movie, but if you know why it's bad you can still enjoy it nonetheless.

Does Elon Musk have some health issues? He stammers and is repetitious, it sometimes becomes painful to listen to him.

Maybe he's an alien, like the new MIB movie suggested.

Really enjoyable but I still don't know what the name of the movie means.
It was almost as good as Gravity and Martian !

He always does that. He is not much of a public speaker and usually does not spend enough time preparing for his speeches.

we can see it's mostly improvised. But yup, it's somewhat hard to listen to his speeches.

on the other hand, consider the good side. If he was an awesome speaker, he would conquer the world.

No, no, no, there must be something wrong in that twitter post. You dont need 18 meters in diameter rocket. What quantity of fuel are you gonna put into it? Than there is that thing called, what is the name in english. I need to check....structural strength I think. Wouldnt rocket of the 18 meters in diameter fell apart if you tried to fly it with so many fuel inside? Besides, what would he need such big rocket for?

Moving objects up to 18 meters in size. Large modules for orbital hotels, furnaces for metal extraction from small asteroids, fully assembled lunar bases, or a freakishly large space telescope. If the capacity to get 18 meter stuff to orbit is offered, somebody is going to build 18 meter things they want to put in orbit.

Besides, the diameter of the tank isn't what causes problems. The height is, and tall rockets is something we do today already. And with a diameter that large, you don't need the rocket to be tall and slender. It could very well be lower than many of the rockets used today. Check out the concept designs of the Ithacus single-stage-to-orbit rocket from the 1960s, for instance.

Organic Compounds Found in Plumes of Saturn's Icy Moon Enceladus


Quote:
Scientists have detected new types of organic compounds in the plumes that have been erupting from Saturn's icy moon Enceladus.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft collected invaluable data and images of Saturn and its moons over the approximately 20 years that the mission took place. While the mission ended on Sept. 15, 2017, with the craft diving toward the planet in a "Grand Finale," scientists continue to study the wealth of data that they gathered during the mission.

In one new study, scientists looked at the material that Enceladus ejects from its core using hydrothermal vents. The material mixes with water in the moon's subsurface ocean and is then emitted as water vapor and icy grains.

CHINA





The Gaofen-10 satellite is launched aboard a Long March-4C rocket at the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province, Oct. 5, 2019. China sent its observation satellite into space from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province at 2:51 a.m. Saturday (Beijing Time). The satellite, Gaofen-10, was launched aboard a Long March-4C rocket and entered the planned orbit successfully. It was the 314th flight mission of the Long March carrier rocket series.

A concept I've often heard (wrongly or correctly attributed to Einstein...) is that you haven't truly grasped a topic unless you can explain it succinctly using simple terminology.

I don't think that is true. As a stroke survivor, I can tell you speaking requires a lot of energy/effort that we don't realize when we're healthy. So thinking about advanced topics and speaking at the same time is difficult.
