Quote from: Elon Musk
Fly to most places on Earth in under 30 mins and anywhere in under 60. Cost per seat should be about the same as full fare economy in an aircraft. Forgot to mention that.

I imagine this is on a discussion thread somewhere (haven’t had time to catch up yet) but think worth posting here for reference:

How do you make the high g-forces of rocket liftoff comfortable for every day travel? Will it just become something we get used to?

Assuming max acceleration of 2 to 3 g's, but in a comfortable direction. Will feel like a mild to moderate amusement park ride on ascent and then smooth, peaceful & silent in zero gravity for most of the trip until landing.

There seem to be two cutaway view renderings to the spaceship one with the oxygen fuel tank just below a single cargo deck and one with two cargo decks.
Any idea as to which is the "correct" one?

From the look of it, all the bulkheads and tanks appear to be in the same locations.

Initially, I too assumed it was cargo, but packed around the top of the LOX tank.

I took one of the other slides, the 'Refilling' one, and blew it up to get a better look. Based on that, I think that the space around the top of the LOX tank is an equipment bay. This could be the life-support machinery and tankage.

I've blown up and enhanced part of the image to make the structures inside the area clearer. They do appear to be a collection of boxes and spherical tanks. The spherical structures resemble tanks more than regular cargo, that leads me to believe that the area is an equipment bay, rather than a storage area.

Maybe I missed something, but this seems exactly like a rehash of the September conference details with no new information.

I imagine that's what "summary article" means.

People who want a DOI to reference, probably.

Right, and this isn't a small group in aerospace. Imagine writing a proposal that might require BFR or New Armstrong or something and pointing to a YouTube link (or just an NSF forum post about New Armstrong rumors) as a reference.

You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.
