We discuss whether the recent closing of the Cocoa Starship building site and the Mk1 Starship test failure have an negative impact on SpaceX Starship takeoff schedule. Besides, we explore whether NASA’s new human spaceflight head will lead to more NASA and SpaceX collaboration.

1:05 All SpaceX Starship Florida building activities are being moved to SpaceX Starship Boca Chica facility after the partial explosion of SpaceX Starship test rocket Mk1.
2:39 SpaceX apparently wants to speed up the building process of Starship Mk3, the first SpaceX Starship orbital prototype, by joining the forces of Boca China and Cocoa. Hence we believe the SpaceX Starship test flight date in 2020 won’t suffer further huge delays.
4:25 Douglas Loverro has just been sworn in as NASA’s new associate administrator for the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate.
6:13 Jim Bridenstine estimates the launch costs of SLS to be lower than 2 billion USD and denies that there is a competition going on between SLS and commercial rocket launch systems.
7:09 Although we really appreciate Loverro’s optimism on NASA landing astronauts on the Moon in 2024, we have to rant about him talking about SpaceX Starship and Blue Origin New Glenn as if these two were on the same level.
9:36 Anyway, it appears that NASA is more and more opening up for incorporating commercial rockets into their Artemis program. If SpaceX would succeed with their planned cargo Starship moon landing in 2021 and unmanned Starship moon round trip in 2022, there is a good chance that NASA will scrap SLS and instead charter SpaceX Starship to bring their astronauts back to the moon in 2024.
