Αν ψάχνεις κάτι ενδιαφέρον να διαβάσεις στη σημερινή αργία (ή και οποιαδήποτε άλλη μέρα), μην παραλήψεις να ρίξεις μια ματιά στο χθεσινοβραδινό ΑΜΑ του Ήλον Μασκ στο reddit, που επικεντρώθηκε στις δραστηριότητες της SpaceX, έλυσε αρκετές ενδιαφέρουσες απορίες που δεν ήξερες ότι έχεις, και πασπάλισε τις απαντήσεις με απροσδόκητο ηλονμασκικό nerdy χιούμορ και βιντεάκια του YouTube με ζώα και ρομπότ.

Our spacesuit design is finally coming together and will also be unveiled later this year. We are putting a lot of effort into design esthetics, not just utility. It needs to both look like a 21st century spacesuit and work well. Really difficult to achieve both.

 

- What daily habit do you believe has the largest positive impact on your life?
- Showering.

 

There needs to be a lot more work on AI safety.
And, with all due respect to the Roomba dude, that is not a concern https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Of2HU3LGdbo

 

1) do you plan on getting any sleep tonight and 2) how will you celebrate if the test is successful?
- Yes, but probably only a few hours. Party at Cocoa Beach!

 

- Follow-up question: How much do you sleep per night, on average?
- I actually measured this with my phone! Almost exactly 6 hours on average.

 

- Previously, you've stated that you estimate a 50% probability of success with the attempted landing on the automated spaceport drone ship tomorrow. Can you discuss the factors that were considered to make that estimation?
- I pretty much made that up. I have no idea :)

 

- Has SpaceX looked into Hybrid craft like the SABRE program happening in the UK, or look into the possibility of a space elevator (Even at a thought experiment stage) in the way that Google and NASA have done?
- If you want to get to orbit or beyond, go with pure rockets. It is not like Von Braun and Korolev didn't know about airplanes and they were really smart dudes.

Έχει κι άλλα ωραία, πήγαινε να δεις με την ησυχία σου. Επίσης μπορείς να βάλεις στο πρόγραμμα την παρακολούθηση του σημερινού ιστορικού (fingers crossed) livestream με την εκτόξευση και επαναπροσγείωση (fingers crossed!!) του Falcon 9. Εδώ.
