1. When Starship deploys up to 400 Starlink satellites at a time. It will be clear that the heavy cargo capability of SLS can be provided by another system for pennies on the dollar.
2. if the Lunar Starship ever docks with Gateway, the size comparison with Gateway will appear silly. Two Starships simply dock with each other and transfer propellant from one to another – like two whales making love…
Doug Plata argues that space policymakers really ought to accept the reality of where things are headed. When Starship achieves orbit, then SLS should have its overdue cancellation.
They should commit to fully utilizing Starship’s capabilities. NASA should do an evaluation of what vehicles are actually necessary.
We need to set aside the endless 3D printing challenges for later and proceed with inflatables, a technology with three examples in space now. Lunar habitats and supporting infrastructure are a much better way to spend the $2 billion a year.

Identify the Tank
They don’t work, they can’t defend themselves, they burn a LOT of navy distillate (fuel), the Coast Guard doesn’t want them – gift them to the Third World?
Or we can install massive radar reflectors and sail them through the Straits of Formosa as Chinese missile catchers… Deplete their arsenal.
For the Historical Record – Arizona Life
I received an e-mail that had to do with living an ‘exciting life’. I live a good life, I live in a quiet place. There is wildlife all over. There is a bobcat that mooches milk and an egg every day. Now. the kittens are getting older they want an egg too. It’s getting out of Control.
Today I’m driving to Winslow, AZ to buy a new crockpot at Walmart because the old one broke.
From Zero Hedge
(link) Having garnered the most votes of any presidential candidate ever in November, Americans appear to be losing faith in President Biden’s ability to ‘build back better’.
From the embarrassment of his chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal to increasing concerns over his tyrannical plans to ‘control’ the pandemic; and from soaring violent crime to anything-but-transitory food inflation, Americans (both young and old) are seemingly suddenly unafraid to express their dissatisfaction, as from coast to coast, college football stadiums on Saturday were packed with fans chanting “F**k Joe Biden.”
I’d have difficulty not joining the crowd in the chant.
