Everyday Astronaut

Rocket science. A term we all use to describe something incredibly difficult. Trying to grasp all of the concepts involved in rocket science can be incredibly intimidating.

My name’s Tim Dodd but I'm better known as the Everyday Astronaut. Recently I fell head over heals in love with spaceflight. My appreciation and curiosity for the subject grew into an obsession. Before you knew it, all I wanted to do was learn more and more. And the more I learned, the more I wanted to share what was making me so excited.

But as someone who dropped out of college and has no technical background or degree… I really felt unqualified for the job of explaining rocket science to anyone. But the fact of the matter is, if I can learn this stuff, anyone can.

Rocket science is awesome, and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to be excited.

Everyday Astronaut. Bringing space down to Earth for everyday people.

Watch SpaceX launch Starship SN9!

    To get yer ARSS to MARS, the how to: first step (if ssto) you need a craft with multi covertion types of engines(as modernly limited), such as thick atmosphere jet perpulsion, swap to thin atmosphere pure rocket convertion, Second - for levitation, having a craft that can morph from wide wing to land & rod slim to blast out fast into orbit. Third - for deep solar path travel, use energy rockets that exirt up to 1G force, with mini nuculear & solar limitlessly gravity travel and solar wave shielding blast exhaust. Fouth - for landing touch down, to be horizontal hoover (Skycrane style bottom thrust), for the easiest living render at gravity planet/moon realms.(no risk with a rope cranes on pure verticle crafts). Then you will get the perfect Starship.

    What about the human capital that has been created during the Artemis program? I know it’s frustrating to think that they just could have used old technology with a few improvements, but on the plus side perhaps they gave training to a lot of people who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to receive it.

    Nice, very well explained. I am part of a nuclear monitoring organization in Nevada. As part of our training we spend a lot of time Talking to the scientists who worked at the nuclear teat site. One of the most interesting lectures was about the nuclear rocket program from the late 50's and into the 60's. While I don't remember the exact numbers, I know that they ran test engines for HOURS at specific impulses of around 900 sec. That is amazing considering the raptor has a theoretical max of 370 sec with a very limited burn time. I have heard that Rolls Royce is still looking into this technology.

    SLS is not a space program. It's a jobs program designed to get politicians reelected and companies like Boeing leeching of the taxpayer's dime. Boeing has gotten lazy over the years by getting sweetheart government deals. The 737 MAX disaster is just one example of how a private got away with skimping on safety in part because the agency meant to regulate the industry looked the other way (regulatory capture).
