SpaceX awarded contract to construct NASA's Artemis lunar lander » Stuff

Card image cap


Elon Musk’s SpaceX may be blowing up Starship prototypes left and right but the company has still managed to snag NASA’s approval for the Artemis lunar program. SpaceX’s Starship human landing system (HLS) is set to function as the Artemis lunar lander, which will land humans on the moon in… a couple of years.
The contract is for a fixed sum and will net Musk’s company a tidy $2.89 billion. That’s about R41 billion in South African money.
Space for SpaceX
This arrangement is a little weird, however. NASA will use its own Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft for the initial launch. Four astronauts will travel, over the course of several days, to the moon. Once there, two astronauts (one of which will be a woman) will transfer to SpaceX’s HLS for descent to the lunar surface.

Rob Niven's company, CarbonCure Technologies, was one of two XPRIZE winners. The Dartmouth, Nova Scotia-based business injected carbon dioxide into water used to wash out cement trucks and mixers at a cement plant, resulting in a mix that makes stronger concrete and keeps the gas contained, according to XPRIZE.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Organizers of a $20 million contest to develop products from greenhouse gas that flows from power plants announced two winners Monday ahead of launching a similar but much bigger competition backed by Elon Musk.
Both winners made concrete that trapped carbon dioxide, keeping it out of the atmosphere, where it can contribute to climate change. Production of cement, concrete's key ingredient, accounts for 7% of global emissions of the greenhouse gas, said Marcius Extavour, XPRIZE vice president of climate and energy.
“So it’s not surprising that the winning teams focused on reducing emissions associated with concrete, which will be a game-changer for global decarbonization,” he said in a statement.

NASA's Mars helicopter completes first flight on another world

Apr 20, 2021
A small robotic helicopter named Ingenuity made space exploration history on Monday when it lifted off the surface of Mars and hovered in the wispy air of the red planet. It was the first machine from Earth ever to fly like an airplane or a helicopter on another world.
The achievement extends NASA’s long, exceptional record of firsts on Mars.
“We together flew at Mars,” MiMi Aung, the project manager for Ingenuity, said to her team during the celebration. “And we together now have this Wright brothers moment.”
Like the first flight of an airplane by Wilbur and Orville Wright in 1903, the flight did not go far or last long, but it showed what could be done. Flying in the thin atmosphere of Mars was a particularly tricky technical endeavor, on the edge of impossible because there is almost no air to push against. NASA engineers employed ultralight materials, fast-spinning blades and high-powered computer processing to get Ingenuity off the ground and keep it from immediately veering off and crashing.

SpaceX Beats Out Blue Origin, Dynetics for $2.89B NASA Moon Lander Contract

SpaceX has won yet another significant human space exploration contract with
NASA. This time, the company was awarded the sole, firm-fixed price $2.89 billion milestone-based Artemis program contract to send astronauts to the Moon on the SpaceX Starship rocket and to continue development of the first commercial human lunar lander. NASA announced the award on April 16.
The California-based, Elon Musk-founded launch company beat out rivals
Blue Origin and
Dynetics for the massive award. The three companies received nearly $1 billion in April 2020 to design and develop Human Landing Systems (HLS) for the Artemis program over a 10-month period.
The award was made under the Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships (NextSTEP-2) Appendix H Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). NASA said it intends to implement another competitive procurement for sustainable crewed lunar surface transportation services.

SpaceX is preparing to test-fly a new Starship after the last four exploded. It could return NASA astronauts to the moon.

SpaceX is preparing to carry four astronauts to a crowded International Space Station on Thursday, in the second routine mission since the United States resumed crewed space flight, and the first with a European.
Liftoff is planned for 6:11 am Eastern Time (1011 GMT) on April 22, from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The mission, called Crew-2, involves US astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, along with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA)'s Akihiko Hoshide, and the European Space Agency (ESA)'s Thomas Pesquet.

Dogecoin Gets Support From Newegg, Snickers, Milky Way for 'Doge Day'
On 4/20/21 at 3:56 AM EDT
Snickers, Newegg and Milky Way have thrown their weight behind Dogecoin ahead of Doge Day.
The online retailer Newegg on Monday announced that it now accepts the cryptocurrency as payment on its website, describing Dogecoin as "popular" and hailing the "excitement and momentum" building around cryptocurrencies right now.
The candy bar brands Snickers and Milky Way, which are both manufactured by Mars Inc., have also started hyping the cryptocurrency, posting a series of tweets on Monday in support of Dogecoin fans' efforts to rebrand April 20 as Doge Day.

SpaceX Starship: What actually is Elon Musk's spacecraft that will take people to the Moon – and colonise Mars

Don't show me this message again✕
In late October 2001, Elon Musk travelled to Russia with the hope of buying three intercontinental ballistic missiles for $20 million. Flush with cash after co-founding PayPal, his plan was to use the rockets to blast a robotic greenhouse to Mars and grow plants using Martian soil.
‘Mars Oasis’, as the project was known, would produce the first oxygen on the Red Planet and would serve Musk’s greater goal of reigniting public interest in human space exploration.
But the Russians did not take the young dotcom millionaire seriously and no deal was ever made. Instead, Musk set about creating SpaceX to build his own rockets for a fraction of the price.

Elon Musk's SpaceX will develop the first commercial human lander for NASA as part of its Artemis program, which will carry the first woman to the moon.
Named Starship, the human landing system (HLS) designed by SpaceX will carry crew, supplies and equipment between a craft in lunar orbit and the moon's surface during the planned 2024 mission.
The astronauts will be launched into orbit in NASA's Space Launch System rocket onboard the Orion spacecraft. Two crew members will then transfer to SpaceX's Starship, which will transport them down to the moon.

The news comes just two months after Tencent Technology Co Ltd filed a trademark registration for its social media app WeChat for use with sales, metal materials, lights and others, sparking a race among Chinese tech firms to copyright the meme-inspired doggo.
TikTok owner ByteDance has launched a contest against Chinese tech giant Tencent Holdings to secure trademark rights to its version of the 'Doge' emoji, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported on Tuesday.
ByteDance Network Technology Co Ltd filed the application last week with the name "dog head big battle", data from TianYanCha revealed.

Elon Musk said he was a "special agent" when he donated to the Republican party in January.
An FEC filing shows that Musk listed his employer as the US Secret Service.
He had previously listed aerospace company SpaceX as his employer on political donations.
Elon Musk has already changed his title at Tesla to Technoking - and now he's claiming to work for the Secret Service, too.
