Elon Musk just announced that SpaceX abandons propulsive landing plans for Red Dragon mission to Mars.
In my opinion, we should not be surprised.
NASA supposedly used propulsive landing for the Apollo missions to the moon…in 1969.
I ask you to please click the following hyperlinks to read three articles, carefully, watch one 3-1/3 minute video, closely, and then draw your own conclusions about the Apollo Moon landings that we are told occured nearly 50 years ago.
First, an article from RT, today:
“The reason we decided not to pursue that heavily is that it would have taken a tremendous amount of effort to qualify that for safety for crew transport,” Musk said. “That’s why we are not pursuing it. It could be something that we bring back later, but it doesn’t seem like the right way to apply resources right now.”
Musk added that he did not think that propulsive landing was the best approach.
Second, my article from ZeroHedge, last year, 2016:
” My premise is that President Kennedy wasn’t an aerospace engineer, he was a politician faced with the Russians and their satellites scaring the shit out of his constituency. He called our shot, but we couldn’t make it. So they lied.”
