Sinking Ship Simulator: The Royal Navy's Damage Repair Instructional Unit - with many, many thanks to the Royal Navy and everyone at HMS Excellent! How do you train sailors to save a sinking ship? Sure, you can teach them the theory, but there's no replacement for having to hammer softwood wedges into deck and bulkhead splits that are spraying cold, high-pressure water in your face. At HMS Excellent in Portsmouth sits Hazard, a Royal Navy Damage Repair Instructional Unit (DRIU). Every Navy recruit who's going out to sea will have to go through something like this -- and on a much harder level than we did! But then, they'll have...

Why SpaceX's Newest Rocket Will Never Go to Space (Hint, it’s not supposed to)

SpaceX is building a massive massive new rocket down in Boca Chica Texas that will never make it to space. No, this isn’t clickbait, this particular rocket will never go to space. Because it’s not designed to. This is just a hopper version of their upcoming starship, that some people are calling StarHopper, and at first, this thing will likely only fly a few meters at most. But don’t get me wrong, of course when the actual Starship goes online, I fully expect it to make it to space! So today we’re going to do a quick history on SpaceX’s previous fleet...
