Rocket engineering prOn

Tour guide: Elon Musk First time we’ve gotten views this close to the real thing
Lots of tech, philosophy, requirements, management, decision-making, and nitty-gritty basic new-systems engineering*
This series should be a mandatory course for rocket/satellite engineers and managers

There’s a lot here, so relax and take it in comfortable chunks

Part 1 of 3 — Starbase Shipyard, Boca Chica, TX

I’ll post Parts 2&3 when available

Geeze, but I love listening to a guy who knows what he’s talking about
Hand-out notes (for this vid’)
Lecture (Overall Starship program)
*My degree is M.S.Systems Engineering (Astro Guidance & Control) so forgive me if I’m a bit giddy
Feels like back in the day at a major design review

    Me, too.

    I was privileged to work with two particular guys. I’ve always said that if I were half as smart as either one of them, I’d be twice as smart as I am.

    Q: “How can we do X?”

    Ed or Tristan: “OK, what do you want to do?”
    The answer to that never went where any of us expected it to.
