Welcome to our Open Lines discussion which was a 1 hour 58-minute-wide ranging discussion covering many topics. We were fortunate in having calls from Ft. Worth John, Bill in Raleigh, Fremont John, and of course our friend from "Little ole Renfro, Oklahoma" - Marshall. Marshall, who called in near the end of the show brought up Starship engines, specifically the Raptor engine and talked about the need to fix the engines or do some engine stabilization. Listen to his comments and post a response on the blog. Ft. Worth John was the first caller. He wanted to talk about the next Starship launch date plus the ULA Vulcan getting ready to launch. He was asked about th recent comments from the outing DIA top guy on the UAP commentary of others including on the whistleblower. John had a response to these inquiries so don't miss what he had to say. Once again, put your comments on this subject on our blog.
Other discussion highlights included Starship and their lunar lander and even a lunar direct version of Starship. John talked about propellant needs for orbital and related needs, then he was asked about advances with SSP as he does some work with John Bucknell regarding John's space solar power company. He described demo tests so far and the plans for the next round of testing. Before ending the program, we heard from Fremont John commenting on a Dr. Doug blog comment plus I read a comment from the blog by Mr. Fincannon, throwing it into the mix for discussion.
