Elon Musk Calls ‘Insanely Low and Ridiculously Good’ Starship Launch Price

Published

Elon Musk said that the first orbital flight of Starship could take place in a month or two. Although he admits to failure, Musk is confident that Starship will reach orbit by the end of this year, while flights will be very cheap on a space scale.

Last week, Musk presented the assembled giant rocket and said: “Let’s make it real! In fact, it is difficult to believe in the reality of what is happening. There will probably be some bumps in the road, but we want to smooth them out with satellite missions and test missions before taking people on board.”

SpaceX is awaiting approval from the Federal Aviation Administration before moving on to the next phase of Starship testing: orbital launch. Musk said the company expects approval in March and that the rocket should be ready to fly by then. This means that the launch will take place in the next couple of months.

If the FAA requires more information about the potential environmental impact or legal action arises, Musk said Starship launches could be moved to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. But this will delay the first orbital launch by more than half a year.

Beyond Cape Canaveral in Florida and the southern tip of Texas near Boca Chica, Musk said Starship spacecraft could eventually launch from floating ocean platforms anywhere in the world. He envisions spacecraft launching three times a day with in-space refueling stations for more distant destinations like Mars. According to him, the first test for refueling in space could take place by the end of next year.

Musk estimates that a Starship launch could cost less than $10 million, perhaps even just a few million dollars. He called the price “insanely low and ridiculously good” by current space standards.

Starship already has one private customer: a Japanese entrepreneur who has bought a trip around the moon and plans to take a dozen artists with him. Musk hinted that there are other people interested.

According to recent data, Xiaomi has already begun production of a new line of smartphones. We are talking about the Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro models.

Smartphones of the Xiaomi 12 line will soon cease to be the newest flagships of the company.  Production of Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro has already begun

The source says that production has started in several countries at once, so the announcement is just around the corner.

Unfortunately, the insider did not add anything about the parameters of the devices. Previously, there was information that Xiaomi 12T Pro will be a copy of Redmi K50S Pro for the global market, and Xiaomi 12T will be a renamed Redmi K50S. By the way, these Redmi models have also not been presented yet, so we don’t really know anything about them. The older one is supposed to get Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, and the younger one will be based on one of the MediaTek platforms. Quite possibly on the Dimensity 8100.

As for the source, it is the insider Mukul Sharma, who, for example, was the first to talk about Xiaomi Mi Note 10 with a 108-megapixel camera.

Active noise cancellation water resistance wireless charging and 12mm drivers

The Meizu range has expanded with mBlu Lifeme TWS fully wireless headphones. The device stands out for its price-performance ratio.

Active noise cancellation, water resistance, wireless charging, and 12mm drivers for $32.  mBlu Lifeme TWS headphones introduced

The novelty costs only about 32 dollars. At the same time, there is active noise cancellation, which in itself is very unusual. But that’s not all. For example, autonomy is declared equal to 6.5 hours, which is quite good. Together with the case, it is already 30 hours.

The headphones are based on 12 mm drivers. This does not guarantee high-quality sound, but usually these headphones have smaller drivers.

There is also moisture protection (IPx4), low latency gaming mode (50ms), Flyme function with pairing with a smartphone immediately after opening the case cover, and even wireless charging.
