summary

NASA just announced the lunar landers for the Artemis program. To everyone’s surprise, SpaceX’s massive Starship is one of three landers NASA chose alongside Blue Origin and Dynetics. Understandably, this is bringing up a lot of questions. Some of which we will answer in my next video/article: “Should NASA just cancel SLS and use Starship and/or other commercial launchers for Artemis?” But today I think we need to settle a lot of debates about these two rockets first. Now, more than ever, it is time we truly compare them head-to-head.
