This from September. Now, I don't recall if anyone remembers this, but if this guy pulls it off after sending Tesla into space, will be the greatest feat since the moon landing.


SpaceX founder and billionaire Elon Musk has revealed that people could be transported around the world on most long-distance trips in under one hour using a new spacecraft he's designed and codenamed "BFR", understood to stand for "Big F...ing Rocket".

Musk's plan was unveiled in a highly-anticipated public presentation he gave in Adelaide, Australia on Friday afternoon at the International Astronautical Congress, in which he updated the world's space industry on his plans to build a colony on Mars and a lunar base on the moon.


Interestingly..

Earlier in the day, defence contractor Lockheed Martin presented its plans to rival SpaceX on Friday morning (keeping in mind this was from September) flagging the prospect of a Mars base, beating Musk to the punch




The competition is steep. This in mind, regarding my previous post www.abovetopsecret.com... , is NASA feeling threatened due to it's rival SpaceX? It would seem so.


NASA and Lockheed Martin Partners In C-130 Technology For nearly 50 years NASA and Lockheed Martin have partnered in developing and fielding advanced technologies for application in the nation's primary tactical airlift aircraft, the C-130. Advancements in structures and materials, aerodynamics, high lift concepts, propulsion and integrated avionics make possible the newest of a long line of Hercules tactical transports, the C have partnered in developing and fielding advanced technologies for application in the nation's primary tactical airlift aircraft, the C-130.

There's a chance you won't be alive when it happens. But if you are, what's a 30 minute wait to the nearest drunk station?

It's really easy to point fingers at people isn't it? Must be nice. We're so used to doing it, we start accusing everyone of it, that's why the world is a mess. We've forgotten how to listen.

Ehh. If there's one thing the world probably doesn't need it's faster travel.

Tell China that. In fact, tell anything 'fast' that.

Fast Food.
Fast Service.
Fast Flights.
The Internet. Fiber Optics are Evil kill them!

NASA have funded Space X hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts and backing.
Why would they have done that if they were feeling threatened?
There’s no validity to your theory.

Of course you don't, you keep yapping instead of listening.

Well, you may not have noticed but the internet hasn't exactly made the world awesome. And fast food certainly hasn't. I've spent the last 5 years fighting the damage I did to my body with cheap and fast when I was 19 and indestructible.

I'm sorry your body is damaged. Everything is a choice though, including what we put into our mouths. As for the Internet, it's expanded our knowledge of many many things, far more than it ever did before hand. To say it hasn't made the world awesome, is an understatement. It's awakened us from our slothful slumber if anything.

On the contrary. NASA has received BILLIONS of dollars from American Tax Payers. Why would they care about one car floating out of orbit? You should know as well as I that Billion dollar corps who have survived the last fifty years and shown little for it's tax payer funding, that a few million is like a few dollars to them. Just ask Bill Gates.

Their only threat is being #2 rather than first place space star contenders.

Sorry you're so anti everything. When did 22000 people die due to high tech train logistics?

Big rocket technology is not going to move the world as Musk predicts. What will move the world is the next generation of hybrid engines, like the one under development by Reaction Engines.

Maybe, maybe not. I think the premise here, is that Working together rather than apart is what will steam line us into the future. We could have been there decades ago, but here we are, still waiting. And now comes another Company, or Two willing to do what NASA has promised but hasn't done. I think people should be more inclined now than ever to get behind these futuristic innovators rather than arguing about misogynistic non details simply because, they're not NASA.

You missed the word "will"

And what's this about trains?
