My thoughts are on Boeings Starliner 

I want to look back at the Commercial Crew Program and say we did good, we expanded mankind's presence in space, we grew our knowledge of the universe; not we only lost 2 crews in 100 missions.

At this point there is too much pressure to fly as soon as possible and I am not convinced that either vehicle is ready, especially for a long duration mission. I would like to think it is because NASA, Boeing and SpaceX have tons of private test data but is that wishful thinking?

My thoughts are on Boeings Starliner 

I'm almost certain starliner will not need to repeat the OFT on the sole ground that if humans were onboard they could of solved the problems.

This was Boeing's thoughts about the problems with MCAS on the 737 Max. As much as I believe we are too reliant on automation it is clear that these systems need to flawless.

During the Space Shuttle program we swept issues under the rug until they literally blew up in our face. Can we not repeat these mistakes?

Highly controversial opinion:

is almost perfectly what Tesla needed to release in a truck.

When you have to ask an employee where the rechargeable batteries are and 15 minutes later the store manager comes out with the only 2 packs in the building. There's battery racks on the end of about half of the aisles, all disposable.

Don't worry though you have to ask for disposable straws...

SpaceX: Also we are building a cheaper, bigger one. It could be ready before SLS

Boeing: Give us more money and time to build the rocket that's already massively over budget and behind schedule and is ridiculously expensive per launch

SpaceX: We have a rocket you can use, it's less than half the price (absolute worst case scenario) and ready to go today

The difference between and : 5 out of the first 10 posts on facebook are ads or promoted content. It was the fourth post before I arrived at a post from someone I was following. None of that junk in mastodon.

It impresses me how much mastodon has changed since I first join.
