Onboard the SpaceX Starship 2.0 in Detail - What it takes to go to Mars | Detailed Breakdown
The layout of the ship follows two guiding functional necessities, zero-G environment, and low gravity. Logically each floor must be designed to accommodate these necessities plus, survival, and psychological needs of the astronauts. Naturally all life support systems will be located at the lower levels along with all hardware, tools among other crucial gear for the space journey and living on mars.
The top floors are for living areas and the flight deck.
A good starship design needs to follow simple rules. Easy to use and fix.
Problems that might arise throughout the journey need to be identified quickly and be simple to solve by anybody on board. If complex problems arise, crew anxiety and stress may lead into further problems risking the mission.
Lastly, everything on the ship must be monitored with visual information available on all floors, especially CO2 levels. User interface must be clear and simple to understand.

I am pretty sure they will not build a one-fits-all solution. Cargo will be send to mars ahead of time. The human transport configuration will only hold the supplies that are needed for the transfer. Also i do not expect to have a full flight control deck for all crew members. I imagine something similar in size to an airplane cockpit. Why would the system do need a lot of human interaction, if the starship is designed to fly without crew and carry cargo on its own anyway?

I was under the impression that the supply ships would be sent first, so the starship carrying the astronauts would not need everything for the full 5-year mission. Just for the journey to get them to Mars lightening the load.
And even after that, when they are sending multiple ships per window, entire ships can be supply ships that are unmanned.
@danielbuggie591 Yıl önce
That's the plan. Especially since the expectation is it would need to generate fuel on Mars to get back to Earth, there is no way they'd send people that way unless they were sure they could top off the tanks to get home.
unmanned supply ships landing first and sending back telemetry will also be good data so the manned landing goes perfectly
@@worldcomicsreview354 Yes. I think some people don't understand the 2 year transfer window thing, and it's throwing them off. There's going to be many starships in orbit, and they are all going to go at once every 2 years. Less than half will be manned I would assume.

This can effectively bring the mass requirement down to 825kg per astronaut (+ 75 kg astronaut + 75kg water) At ~1000kg per astronaut, 10 astronauts would only need 10,000kg for a return mission instead of 118,625kg
@emma-ns6fj Yıl önce
do you know what type of power would fuel the inside? for example nuclear or solar or both?
@@emma-ns6fj nuclear wouldn't be feasible as it's large, heavy, and highly complex. Nuclear power just boils water to turn a turbine to generate electricity. Solar would be the most beneficial as the ship would have 24/7 solar radiation. There could be a heat exchanger that could help save energy by utilizing the light below UVB that solar uses to generate additional electricity.
@emma-ns6fj Yıl önce
@@beyondplanesight interesting 🤔 but wouldn’t the solar power get weaker as the ship moved further from the sun?
@@secretname4190 you are correct that nuclear submarines have small reactors. The submarine costs $3.45 billion with the reactor costing $200 million or more, aside from cost, spent steam at low pressure runs through a condenser cooled by seawater and returns to liquid form. The water is pumped back to the steam generator and continues the cycle. Any water lost in the process can be made up by desalinated sea water added to the steam generator feed water. There is no seawater in space to cool the steam so it would not work. Solar arrays are much cheaper and simpler to install and can be pointed at the sun for 24/7 energy. If we could develop an energy source alternative that does not require heating steam to turn a turbine, then that could be used but there is little out there that has been proven to work at a commercial or industrial level.

You worked out many constraints. Very good! The "belly flop" reentry phase means that seats need to swivel from down-toward-the-bottom-of-starship to down-toward-the-belly and back in a few seconds. This constrains the configuration of landing seats.
@allangibson2408 Yıl önce
Or you spilt the difference and have the seats at 45 degrees to the engines or bottom of the ship…
The interior seating or couches might be reconfigured and repositioned for departure, zero g coast phase, and landing. Not really needed in zero G. Design for multiple use of major components are essential.
@eatonkuntz Yıl önce
If all the seats face away from the belly it wouldn't be too bad. You would be comfortably reclined during the belly flop and upright during launch.
@@eatonkuntz An airline row seating configuration is probably a realistic solution, there may be others. The couches would need to rotate up around their midpoint about 30 degrees for the decent and then quickly pivot back to horizontal for launch/landing. Space X will probably adapt existing seats they use now for the Dragon capsule.

Is that really necessary ? Why do they need to rotate just for the few seconds of belly flop ? Geniune question.
@GinoACosta Yıl önce
The best solution, as was mentioned, is to have unmanned construction machines go to Mars, have them build a base, preferably carved inside a rock cliff of a lava tube, and have multiple ships, each carrying a small number of people. Also, an amazing amount of materials could be gotten in-situ on Mars, oxygen, carbon dioxide, etc., and water could be made from those, assuming lots and lots of frozen water doesn't already exist there
Great video! They likely would be able to tap oxygen directly from the main oxygen propellant tank though, so that would save a lot of mass from the oxygen tanks you factored in.
@sewi014 Yıl önce
Similar with water as you can use the waste water from the hydrogen fuel cells to supply the crew. Shielding is another point, if 2mm of shielding is enough there is no way 5cm wouldbe used throughoutthe whole ship. That would mean a safty factor of 50x which i way overengeniered even if we arent talking about mass critical applications like space travel, and as mentioned a segnificant ammount of shielding could be provided by water tanks and other storrage as well as the structure itself with some areas havong more shielding to serve as shelter during solar storms or while travenling through the van allen belts for example where you have to factor in increased radiation levels.
@LordMoriancumer Yıl önce
You can reclaim oxygen, recovering 75% of it, and reduce the O2 requirements by several factors. Also, you can achieve over 90% water reclemation reducing the water requirements by 8-10x. this reduces the consuables of O2 to just 250gms / day / person, and water to less then a liter / day / person. even with a water budjet of 20L / day, 1 cubic meter of water / person would be enough water for 18months. 1 cubic meter of liquid O2 would be enough for 1 person for 12 years. The rest of your numbers seem to be close to the mark, and the production quality is realy spot on! good work

The remaining power could be from the reactors for the 6-7 month trip. Lift off from Mars is another topic but Mars atmosphere is thinner so they could make escape velocity on far less fuel. Smaller fuel tank means more cargo space and more living quarters for more people. Nuclear really is the way to go like you said.

@runningray Yıl önce
Really enjoyed your video. Pretty thought out. There is a couple of items that are usually ignored that bothers me. 1) Starship when vertical has an up and down, but Starship when horizontal also has a up and down. When it's landing you want the people in the bridge of the ship to be upright. So the op's deck of the starship will probably look like the Dragon capsule. With 4-5 chairs sitting "upright" when the ship is doing it's flip maneuver to land. 2) The center of Starship will not be a "tunnel", but a "column". The main ship plumbing will be in the central column running down the ship, top to bottom (which will include the downcomer). That column should have hand rails / steps so people can climb up and or down the ship. Also, you wouldn't have a long tunnel running top to bottom. You will have a ladder going down only one floor at a time, with a slight off center look to the next ladder going down to the next floor. Like this, nobody will every fall more than one floor on Earth or Mars gravity and not 5-6 stories down. 3) I feel people that do these designs need to add water tanks between every floor, not to mention all sorts of wiring. So the in between the floors need to be much thicker, not just one level on top of the next. Because of this, I don't think Starship will have as many levels as people think it will.

Very happy to see someone else doing this. However that said, I'd like to give some constructive criticism. (1) Don't do zero-G all the way to Mars--at a minimum connect two starships by the nose and rotate; (2) Don't need that much exercise equipment--they will share; (3) The flight deck could be reconfigurable for multiple uses--I suggest a classroom, lots to study en route; (4) Forget dehydrated food--use MREs + hydroponics; 1 MRE is 3-4K calories so one per person per day; (5) Obviously, you are going to recycle air and water--Mars has at least 1 liters of water ice per 1 cubic meter of regolith; (6) 600 grams of algae can exchange enough CO2 to Oxygen for an average adult, it can also clean ammonia and metals, a moss wall can do similar but directly from air as where algae will require spraying through air to capture it in water; (7) I don't think its going to need nearly as much electricity as the ISS, unless it's conducting numerous experiments and such; (8) water and plastics are great radiation insulators, yes. Also, foam the plastic and use as insulation. I suggest PVC, which will give similar radiation shielding and better insulation. Metals help block radiation but release secondary particles even more dangerous. That said, the plastic and water will block it.

@Science Revolution In answer to you ignorant garbage and this is more for others than you. 1) They can measure spacecraft speed and location through several techniques. One of the most common is with gyroscopes as part of inertial navigations systems. Also they use the locations and angles of stars the same way sailors have for generations to get their position. 2) We know how long it takes for the Earth to go around the Sun. We know the distance and its pretty simple calculation to get the earths average speed around the sun. 3) The ISS like most satellites needs orbital boosting. Space is not the pure vacuum many think there's just very little of anything. There's still some drag just as there is for a car or airplane. Over time orbits degrade which is why you need boosting. Most satellites have small rocket motors to do the same thing the ISS does. Those that don't eventually fall out of orbit. 4) So what about the burn time of those rockets. You clearly don't understand the difference between a rocket that flies a ballistic trajectory and one that flies into orbit. What's important is how high those first stages boost the upper stages and how fast those stages are going when the booster runs out. Ballistic rockets only have to get up high. Orbital rockets have to get up high and go fast when they are high. Please don't embarrass yourself any further.
@Science Revolution Tell me you know nothing about spacetravel without telling me you know nothing avout spacetravel. Usually satellites have ion-engines to boost their orbit and keep it from decaying. The ISP of an ion-engine is much higher than a lower stage of for example Saturn V, which you used for your example. Secondly you don't understand relativity, because you feel to think that space is a stream of water or some shit. Please for god's sake study the subject before thinking you know more than actual rocket engineers.

I was thinking, "They're going to need nuclear power", all the way through the second half of the video. Hydrogen cells, solar and batteries are never going to work on such a lengthy mission. Over time, hydrogen leaks through of all known materials. I would be very nervous about hydrogen tanks that were meant to last five years, or even six months, without serious leakage problems. With nuclear, there will enough power to spare to split CO² back into carbon and oxygen. This means far less oxygen will need to be transported since it can be recycled from CO². With sufficient energy available, water can also be split into hydrogen and oxygen. In this scenario, the hydrogen doesn't need to be stored for long periods, minimising the leakage losses. Recycling everything combined with utilisation of resources found on Mars will be the key to manned journeys to Mars.

I want to note that so far you have the most detailed (though still not detailed enough) floor plans and ideas what everything that will be configured on Starship and what will be needed for them to survive the trip to Mars. You didn't go into what would happen after their initial food ran out (8 months of food for a 6 month journey) which I went into more detail on. I'm far from an expert. Just an amateur enthusiasts / amateur designer/engineer My biggest weakness is drawing either in physical form or on computers.

it's gonna take a fleet of about 5-7 ships to do the trip. some will be for cargo only, and controlled from earth/computers. i also think they should be coming up with a docking/connection port that they can link the ships together, and make the trip as one bigger starship.
@kapytanhook Yıl önce
Seems smart, keep all the shielding in 1, power in the other. Only 1 ship would ever have to land or reenter earth rest can just shuttle back and forth on a free return trajectory.
@alconway8515 Yıl önce
Indeed, I can imagine a connector/docking terminal for 6 Starships, rotating to produce artificial gravity and heading to Mars. Each Starship containing cargo, life support & crew or 4 containing cargo and 2 supporting crew comfortably. A number of configurations to consider for sure if multiple Starships are mated together before the journey and all able to land or only the crew Starships land once at Mars.
Very interesting calculations! Thank you!

The orientation of the seats on the flight deck could do some improvement, as the gforces during reentry should optimaly push you into the seat, with the ring config that would only be the case for a few of the astronauts so a more rektangular layout would be more comfortable. Anyway nice video in general with amazing graphics
@no4h1453 Yıl önce
Good point. Although this ring config looks impressive, it is not practical and makes no sense. It would probably work well for launch but Starship is designed for reentry with the belly. Astronauts will need to have sturdy front facing sitting position during reentry.
@jakobmax3299 Yıl önce
@@no4h1453 I actually really like the topic of reentry vehicles, and i think the main problem of the starship is gonna be reentry safety. Just think about it like you dont know anything about spaceflight. Would you rather sit on the tip of a skyscaper going mach 20 in the upper atmosphere, or a small metal box that is aerodynamicaly stable and always points right side down? Maybe starship is safer than space shuttle, but the fact you cant do preflight testfires because the tiles fall of seems kinda sketchy.
@psdaengr911 Yıl önce
What G forces during reentry? Anything that falls, falls at that same speed. Until belly flop g force would be one G minus drag. The belly flop is to limit terminal velocity by increasing drag. If the seats were mounted "bottom down" relative to the rockets and the backs aligned with the "belly" during falls in the direction of the backs, the net drag and would be perfectly aligned for those seats. Once vertical the rockets' thrust would be opposing the seat bottoms

Excellent - but, the flight deck is set up for under gravity, micro gravity, or launch only. It would be very bad for a belly flop during landing. Gimballed seats needed.
By biggest criticism for most these designs are they all have a ladder or elevator, ladders suck for carrying supplies up and down and elevators are heavy and complicated and have the change of breaking but allow moving supplies easier. i always though a spiral staircase either in the center or along the outer wall makes the most sense, it can be compact in the center and is the steps fold up or down it can be easily used in 0G. no moving parts to break and can be made of extremely light weight material. easier to carry supplies up and down in gravity and much easier than a ladder for every day use.
Ok I know other people are already talking about this but I really think its an important idea that needs to be put out there more: Long distance space ships are only going to become really effective (large number of people, fairly comfortable, etc) if they are built in space and aren't designed to exist anywhere but space. If there ever comes a time when a fleet of starships head to mars, it would be (in my opinion) idiotic not to create some sort of mothership that accompanies, and even combines with them. When this 'mothership' reaches wherever its goin, mars for example, the landing ships (starships), the crew (all, or most, or maybe only some of the crew) will leave the mothership in orbit while they board the starships, undock from the mothership, and land on mars. To me, this is the only reasonable or even feasible way to transport colonists. There is far too much room taken up by launch and landing capabilities on a single starship, and there will simply not be enough room for the number of people that SpaceX envisions living on a Starship. Istg if anybody tries to put 100 people on a single starship heading to mars they're more braindead than a rock that was diagnosed braindead by 9/10 dentists.

@@shrin210 If the plan is to send a fleet of starships then I think a mothership the size of 2-3 starships is reasonable, and I like the idea of centripetal force. As I said, I see absolutely no feasibly way to to send that many people to mars without something like that. Elon may be ballsy but I dont think he's stupid. Any sane person could see that undershooting an investment like this and not providing a mothership of sorts would lead to nothing but disaster. So while I agree that nobody would be willing to spend that kind of money, somebody better step up soon and be willing, otherwise we will never be multiplanetary. I have hope that elon will.

I saw one concept about having a 30m or so long truss and attaching one starship to each end, and spinning it up to like 3 rpm would generate 1G of spin gravity in the starships, thart way you could get around the bone degradation issues. Also, 1g isnt even necessary, martian gravity would be good, getting the crew to adjust to that gravity for months before even getting there.

The bone deg isn't really a problem if you've got adiquate exercise facilities. Astronaughts spend way longer than 6 months on the ISS and they're fine.

Great presentation - thanks! Even if the mass to orbit remains at 100 tons (the number of raptor engines seem to provide a strong possibility for more) - it would be trivial to launch another starship with additional supplies - vis-a-vis several refueling missions. Of course this would also affect necessary delta v. However, you could instead/also launch a companion uncrewed starship for security, storage and backup.
have at 150 tons new raptors
@pfcrow Yıl önce
I was going to say the same thing. Mass to orbit is irrelevant, as you can transfer cargo in orbit. What matters is how much mass can be sent to Mars from orbit after refueling and cargo transfer. I would expect the crew won't even launch until the Starship is refueled, so they're not present during what may be one of the more dangerous operations. And of course, resupply and refueling at Mars is assumed with cargo Starships. While this could be taken a step further with resupply during the journey, that adds complexity to the mission that would be avoided if at all possible (and as argued in the video, avoiding it is clearly possible). Another option is to build a new Starship design that is essentially a booster with a detachable nosecone. In orbit, discard the nosecone, fuel it up, and then dock it with the mission Starship. This would act as an additional stage to give them a boost out of Earth's gravity. This could also result in shorter missions, reducing the cargo needs.
@gabedude68 Yıl önce
Great video concept! Was actually trying to model my own version over the last month - just sharing my thoughts to some of it and some comments: They can send at least a pair of Cargo ships 2 years before the Crew mission, to have some certainties. Can also send ships in groups of 2 or more, to dock and share space, rec.facilities, expand crew social/sanity options, and even rig a simple spin-g to have modest gravity for part of the trip, and share redundancy of equipment and resources, or even emergency befalling one ship.. 6 bathrooms and 6 gym machines, for 10 crew? at that rate, might as well have en-suite bathroom and gym, just saying. Really want to see this fast tracked so I get to see us on Mars in my lifetime. Thanks!

Sorry to all but, this is disgraceful idiocy masquerading as engineering and scientific fact. FYI - I am an aerospace engineer and I'd love it if we had a spaceship that could go between the earth and the moon or Earth and Mars, *BUT this is NOT THAT.* This is idiotic science fiction masquerading as scientific fact. Point 1) There is no space to waste on any space craft - period. Go look at any of the footage from the ISS, Space Shuttle, Soyuz, Mir and there was/is no wasted space for anything. Point 2) While we are still using chemical based rocket motors there is allowance for wasted mass. Nobody is going to waste mass on anything that is not necessary and the only things that will have multiples will be critical systems like Oxygen systems, CO2 recycling, power systems, communications systems and water reclamation. Look at 30seconds for the gym area and then the detailed view at 3:30. There's 4 treadmills, 3 showers and 3 toilets and most stupidly of all 3 weights benches which wont work in free fall. *This's not even good enough for science fiction, it's ignorant science fantasy.*

Diagrams from SpaceX show a tunnel with ladders through the middle of the ship - so that the crew can move between floors, potentially with an elevator (for those who can't just Musk-magic themselves around). The full 9 meters by most accounts is measured from the outside to the centre.

we should try fixing 4-5 spaceships together in Orbit and disconnect them in Mars Orbit again. The medium ship could be the Center for maneuvring, this would also protect the astronauts in the middle ship from space rays, not completely but for sure more as in a solo ship. We will see. Furthermore it would be a good idea to put always 8ppl of the crew in some kind of stasis, and keeping two up per 1 or 2 month shift, it would safe food, oxygene, water and other things ♥ IN MUSK I TRUST ♥
