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.

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.

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.

Overall this is a good initial breakdown of the challenges of such mission, however I'm hoping a future video will take in consideration not just nuclear energy but also multiple ship arriving at the same time and/or multiple cargo ship already there waiting.

You also have to consider the EVA suits of each astronaut, if you plan on them going outside on Mars
My Own Creations by Dave Rogers
Yea, there's always more to remember organising these kinds of expeditions!! But the gym is six times larger than it needs to be, so they can store some suits there. ;) There is also plenty of spare ceiling space in this design for mounting extra equipment. The flight deck equipment could be on the ceiling and a rec area on the floor, eliminating one metal deck. They'll also need stuff like a rubbish compactor, and a solar storm shelter next to the fuel tank. A lot depends on what is already at the Mars landing site, and what needs to be brought along. Ideally the ship and its contents are mostly about doing the trip right. Staying in the ship on mars would be quite inconvenient, so heading to a hab would be nice... :)

Look at SpaceX suits for Dragon and is already design vacuum EVA suits. Mars is a mix, has a partial atmosphere so doesn't need reinforces joints but will need dust seals for joints, connectors and fittings. I can envision something like a Tesla charge connector plus a static charge generator.

@Darren New Because everything outside is literally trying to kill you. The rocks, the sand, the wind, the weather literally everything not inside your small capsule you'll be living in is a potential death sentence. There is no hospital. The question is why WOULD you go outside?? Theres literally nothing out there. Everything in that type of environment is a risk vs reward situation. Except for the sheer amazement of walking on Mars it affords no beneficial purpose on the contrary it's dangerous everytime they open the door because there is NOTHING out there.

Great video. I don't think the sections of the ship would be only dedicated to one thing. it is likely that there would be all elements included in each section. if they lost one section they would loose a percentage of all systems instead of loosing an entire system. if for some reason they couldn't enter the bathroom section for a week there are going to be problems.

@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.

@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.

There are man made satellite in space is a lie. Scientists have no method and instrument to measure speed in space is fact. Otherwise they can use it to prove earth speed in space. Why need made up math calculations to show it? NSSA said ISS needs to reboost its orbit once a while. How the rest thousands of satellites reboost their orbits? Rockets max burn time: Saturn V first stage: ~ 168 seconds. Falcon 9 first stage: ~ 170 seconds. Space Shuttle deorbit burn: ~ 240 seconds. Friendship 7: ~ 300 seconds. Rockets can burn only few minutes. How far it can go? All space missions are fake. NSSA sent 90 fake telescope into space already as they lied. ​All rockets burn out fuel and fall to earth/ocean. Otherwise we can put weapons in orbit and attack anyone. Did they really landed on Mars? Fake footages???,

Very nice quality content. I would've liked to see some discussion on alternative solar power configuration options, for example the two fan-like panels in SpaceX's early renders. What would be the solar area and power output of those? And what about doubling it to be 4 such fans coming out of the ship? I imagine that might be enough area for even Mars-level light dimness. And I think it would reduce complexity. Plus, they're gonna need as many solar panels as possible when they get to Mars, so it wouldn't make sense not to take as many as they can carry either way.

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
Fancypants McVomitshirt
You CAN reclaim O2, but you need to power that process and it takes a LOT of power. 1MW SMRs (of a size and weight needed here) are not a reality yet, so it doesn't make sense to plan around them. Carrying the power in batteries would weigh more than just carrying the O2. This video factors in H2O recycling.

There will be several starship involved in one mission and possibly a few at the same time. There would be countless problems if you imagine just one starship carrying astronauts to mars. They will be designing the space craft in way so that docking is possible in deep space. One for crew and another one for cargo. Also there'd already be a starship on mars with necessary cargo equipments. Also each starship has to refuel in orbit to reach mars. It's not easy and never will be but fitting everything in one go or a new concept will make unnecessary problems.

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.
Bernie Schiff
Bernie Schiff Aylar önce
@Eaton Kuntz 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.

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.

The Interfaith Shepherd
This was a great video to watch and very thought provoking. My thoughts at the end are that the trip to Mars needs to be a flotilla (maybe 3) vs one ship. This would have many benefits. The multiple ships could be used, for example, one to carry people, one to carry supplies, 3rd for fuel. The ships could be arranged during travel to provide shielding when necessary. Finally, the ships could be used as backup vehicles - should something go wrong in one or the other.

Great job! One video I've been waiting for is a discussion of methods to test the chopsticks. Many channels have talked about the possibility of SpaceX trying a catch on the first launch. That would be absurd and suicidal. Personally, I think Elon missed opportunities to test the chopsticks when he chopped up the various boosters 1 to 6. The crane could have been used to hold and lower a booster between the chopsticks at a controlled rate. Then the problem of swinging the chopsticks to match a variety of off-center and varying-velocity scenarios could have been tested and accommodated into the control algorithm. And what about the effects of wind? A lot of catch-questions need answers and proposed solutions.

@emma it would. The advantage of not being in orbit around the earth is that it receives 100% more solar energy. The space station spends 45 minutes in darkness and 45 minutes in the sun so a trip to mars would automatically have much more power available. combined with higher-end panels they should be able to power everything the ship needs. The inverse square law does come into play and the panels will come into play. Once Mars is reached there's only 590 w/m^2 compared to 1370 W/m^2 so the trip would be between those amounts

@secret name 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.

Beyond Plane Sight

@emma 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.

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

@P Schmied when tje rocket reenters it doest feel the one g of gravity because its still fslling, but in the deceleration of the rocket is felt by the crew.This is why crews in ballistic emergency reentries fell a lot of gforces, the sttep entry int the atmosfere creates a lot of drag and thus gforce.
P Schmied
P Schmied 5 aylar 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

@George Aiva 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.

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.

Connect two together at the nose with several redundant cables (synthetic material) and have them rotate so that Martian like gravity is simulated in the ships. Either ship could which them together (in case of equipment failure on one ship) and de-spin. Could connect 3 or 4 nose to nose (think a 3 bladed or 4 bladed helicopter propeller). This would save on as much gym equipment, would allow the astronauts to get used to the gravity of where they are going, and be a simple to use and maintain (no complicated electronics, specialty equipment, etc; simple electric winches). Also, your designs do not seem to take into account deployable solar panels for power during the trip.

I tend to think Starship wont fly solo to Mars. Imagine if you will a "space dock" which is essentially a Starship without fins or cockpit that has four docking ports around the perimeter. The Dock would allow four ships to fly together offering massive redundancy in case of a system failure on any one ship as well as allowing crews to interact and spend time visiting the other Starships via connector tubes integrated into the Dock. The Dock could also house massive amounts of fuel and cargo allowing a reduction in those items aboard each individual Starship. The Starships themselves would provide propulsion for the Dock so instead of vacuum engines the Dock could be equipped with multiple nuclear power sources which would remove those from the Starships enhancing crew safety.

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.

There are reformed methane (and methanol) fuel cells, that use steam reforming to crack methane into h2 and carbon particulate before running the H2 through a fuel cell. Keep in mind, the starship has massive tanks of methane and oxygen it uses for rocket fuel. simply allocating some extra tankage to account for the extra fuel and oxygen used for fuel cells would be comparatively simple and solves the hydrogen storage problem quite neatly. Granted nuclear power is still a very good idea, and solutions to lower mass microreactors for space applications is a very much needed field of development. All that being said, I think solar is actually still a potential solution with a more sensibly designed folding geometry, that can compact down more and unfold bigger. NASA has been researching origami for ways of folding big solar panels into smaller spaces for a while now and they have had some significant success.

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.*

An excellent presentation of how we can getter dun. I would enjoy some feedback on using our Moon as a staging point for various vehicles, each specializing in one support activity or each one containing a fraction of all support. These vehicles after collection and readiness for the move to Mars could then be linked together (think train) and then launched toward the final destination. Such a configuration could resolve a lot of today's what-ifs. To include important redundancy, reliability & reduced crew stress. One of the links in the train could even be a doughnut-ring artificial gravity module. OK, Ed, let's end this here.

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.
Preston Crow

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.

If they could launch 2 ships into space, then orbit them. They could connect the two. Either side by side, or some kind of tether device, and pull it. Then they could have more supplies in case something were to happen. They could then sustain themselves better. Then when they get to Mars the other ship would be fueled and ready if need be to escape fast.

I do think for a crew that large (ten astronauts as opposed to 4-6) for a mission that long (5 years instead of 2 years), they would pre-deploy another Starship full of supplies and equipment near the landing site. Indeed, if you picked an area within reasonable driving distance of interesting Martian terrain, then it would probably make sense to just build a base when you arrived.

I kinda predict they will make a longer fairing section for Mars human missions. Similar to the LEO tanker graphic they showed. The current size is just large enough but I reckon to be extra safe they'll use a longer version for Mars since it doesn't need flaps to land there They could just launch on regular Starship then move to Mars Starship in orbit like what they plan to do with HLS Starship

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.

I love how you did this, it's food for thought. You see where you said hydrogen... Actually, why not carry some of the water as hydrogen and oxygen, such that the power requirements of the ship don't become a distinct mass for it's own purposes. ie convert hydrogen and oxygen into water thru fuel cells, which produces the required power and boom you solve many problems at once. Remember, the ship has a huge tank of oxygen already, the only missing piece here is hydrogen, which again goes to my poop 💩 comment below. 😂 Hydrogen can be obtained from human poop, we can actually scrap carrying hydrogen in large quantities and commend the crew to pooping, tell them their business means life and a safe return 🥴. So don't waste that poop, seriously. So yeah, we can obtain the ship's power from human poop and a bit of the propellant. Obviously batteries are needed and I bet they will be structurally built into the ship, just like 4680 cells in the newer Tesla Model Y, serving a dual purpose for energy storage and radiation shielding. Not sure if it will be safe or whether batteries are affected by cosmic radiation, but it makes sense to do it that way.

In a steam turbine you need diferent temperatures in order for the steam to go from A high pressure hight temperature steam to B low temperature liquid water...

Only neutron radiation would have any significant effect on this and even then it would need to happen over a very long time. Most other forms of radiation such as high energy protons, and alpha particles will be stopped dead by even a sheet of paper.

I am quite intrigued on how they get the power on the Starship 2.0. During the recent Mars rover mission (Perseverance) they attached some sort of nuclear power. That was much more efficient than solar panels. Why not add them on the Starship? I am assuming because of the dangers of it?

@Arena_Alpha_Alex I'd say a mix of fuel cells, solar panels and big batteries.

Yes, primarily. That's a nuclear RTG, which I believe stands for Radioisotope thermal generator.

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?

Despite claims to the contrary, the astronaut who went to the ISS for 12 months, while his twin brother remained on earth. It was discovered that significant damage was suffered by the twin who went to space, and also by his own statements (he felt very sick in a general way with a malaise, perhaps a debilitating depression? It would take him a very long time to return to 80% of his former self, by his own admission.) Were this to occur on a Mars journey (and the likelihood would be increased due to the ISS being in LOE,)and still marginally within our planet's magnetosphere. What and how would we react/deal with a crew that could not function upon landing on Mars? Not enough resources are being put into this, as basic facts of space travel. 12 months on the ISS, or 6 months on the way to Mars, or the round trip to the moon and back. These all have differing timelines with their own hazards. Nobody is realistically dealing with any of the hazards that I am aware of. Psychological, social and physiological factors need to be taken into account before we start venturing into the unknown with humans, I would suggest. Cheers 🤔🤔🤔🤔

Despite your argument being valid in the sense that psychological as well as physiological issues will arrise you faild to mention the name of the astrounout you are refearing to but i assume its Scot Kelly, in which case both him and his twin brother mark were diagnosed with prostate cancer arroud a similiar time. If you are refearing to the canges in genetic activity thats somethig that happens in everyone in response to the environement and has an entire field of study called epigenetics dedicated to it. Something also missing in your argument that reaserarching the long there effects of living in space was kind of the point of the iss. After 20 years of reaserch we know a lot more about the dangers and how to prevent them and likely we'll get another 10-20 years of reasearch in before we ca consider trips to mars. The argument that nobody is dealing withnthe human factor is simply falls. Astronouts that travel to the iss undergo segnificant psychological evaluation and traing before missons to ensure they can work as a team and NASA conducted multiple studes on the psychological and physical effects of long tearm space habitation. Your argument makes it sound like astrounouts comming back from the iss are in a vegetative state unable to do anything which is frankly not the case, while also dissmissing the reasearch and brakethroughts thousends of scientists have achived in the last decades. Im not saying spaceX will be the ones to reach mars with the timeline they suggested, that is a PR stunt with an unachivable goals in that timeframe, but arrguing that no reaserch is done on the human factor is ignoring the work of a lot of people who have dedicated ther laifs to this cause.

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.

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.

@Darren New I agree. Because NASA is intrinsically tied up with bureaucracy, setting smaller goals might not be the best game-plan for getting the most stuff done as efficiently as possible. But its also a double edged sword, because if they're too ambitious and they make a big mistake, then congress gets mad and cuts funding. If we're talking about SpaceX, then yeah I think they'd learn a lot of very valuable information from a test-run on the moon. Thats one of the reasons why I'm so glad that they got the human landing system contract, because I know for sure that otherwise Elon would be an overambitious dumbass and go straight to mars. So yeah I think we should go to the moon. But tbh I think it should be more of a test run than anything, and should turn into its own project only after it has done the work of propping up a mars mission. But thats honestly an opinion piece so do with it what you will :)

Why not send multiple ships at once? The ships could combine after lift off for the majority of the trip and separate again for landing. From the calculations of this video much of the supplies and equipment needed for "living" conditions could be spread out. Spreading the resources, weight and power could make the trip doable and with less constraints. Please do a video on how resources, supplies and power could be separated and combined to accomplish this. Elon Musk has all ready proposed that multiple ships are needed. Why not send them at the exact same time??

Even 3 will make such mission WAAAY easier. 1 for crew , 1 for backup to leave in mars orbit as return emergency , 1 with spare parts.

I think that it's because they want to be sure that the supply ships are safely on Mars before sending the crew. Imagine if one of the supply ships failed and the crew would be stranded or would starve -- it would be a disaster.
