Countering Misconceptions in Space Journalism

September 11, 2021, 10 AM PDT

(An AIAA Zoom Webinar)

by

Dr. Casey Handmer

Physicist (PhD Caltech) and Software Engineer

SpaceX has been working on some variant of the Big Falcon Rocket for almost a decade, with a publicly announced architecture for three years. The target performance figures are on the Starship website, endlessly dissected on Twitter, Reddit, and NASA spaceflight forums, and there’s even a livestream of construction.

Yet none of the oft-published mainstream articles seem to capture the magnitude of the vision that Starship embodies. Starship prompts superlatives, but by the end of this presentation the attendees will understand not only how big Starship is, but also that it’s as small as it can possibly be.

In addition, the speaker will address the persistence of a variety of common misconceptions in space journalism, and how he decided to write a series of blogs on each topic, the better to understand the issues myself and to function as a handy reference for others. Each blog represents the speaker’s opinion only, but will be accessible to a general audience and rigorous enough to adequately support that particular viewpoint.
