All you have to do now is come up with an idea, tell a reporter that your company's 'working on it', and they'll report it as if you're launching tomorrow.

"SEE-1 is scheduled to launch in December 2024. It will attach to Axiom's first module that the company plans to connect to its space station in September 2024."

I'm really not sure what your problem is. Was your head repeatedly punched into a wall when you were a child, such that you suffer both brain damage and a compulsion to keep butting your head into walls?

The report you're criticizing for saying "as if they're launching tomorrow" explicitly says they're looking at 2024.

While you might not enjoy how the space industry is developing, I fail to see how your determined ignorance assists anyone. Explain. What is your beef?

I had an idea about using cell phones to transmit physical objects. "We're looking it"

I feel like that merits a press release that Quantum Bunny, Inc is releasing teleportation.

It's not launching in 2024. It's not even designed let alone constructed by 2024.

Company building the studio is also building a module for the ISS for NASA. NASA wants to film a movie with Tom Cruz. The studio module will mate with the module being built for the ISS. When ISS is closed they want the modules back for their own project.

Your specific complaint, you idiot, was that you said that journalists were saying it was launching tomorrow. When they obviously didn't.

Therefore, you have some complaint about actual reality. Again.

There has to be some basic issue driving your nonsense. What is it? Do you hate the Universe you've been born into or something?

Axiom has a pretty solid history. The company making the pressure module  for Axiom made all of the current stations pressure module components and is usually on schedule. Since it is a near duplicate of previous station modules, it seems a fair bet that it would be ready when they say it will. Rocket, interior equipment, crew and studio checks clearing are not so likely to be on schedule.

The journalists pretend that it's real. That whatever they've been told is absolutely true. They just repeat a press release verbatim and don't give it the slightest but of scrituny. That's what I mean when I say they act like it's ready to launch tomorrow. They don't realize that it's at the 'stoned concept' phase, where someone smokes a joint and then thinks 'It'd be cool to have like a movie studio in space.' The journalists report on it like it's a done deal.

They act like it's proposed to launch in 2024. It's right there in the article.

Russ1642: They don't realize that it's at the 'stoned concept' phase,


Axiom's a serious operator. How are you so deeply misinforming yourself? Is this one of those "I can't imagine it so it can't be possible" climate change things?

It might not be there. JWST isn't where is was meant to be decades ago. Delays happen. Complexities happen.

Space stuff is hard.

What's not hard is judging that someone who says, "journalists act as though it's going to launch tomorrow" when the journalists say it's "proposed for 2024" has a cognitive difficulty.

You have a cognitive difficulty.

In space terms 2024 is practically tomorrow. No space project is that fast. And theb ournalists act as if it's ready to go tomorrow. Throwing 2024 in there doesn't absolve them of the rest of the article with its hyperbolic claims.

Remember folks, the end of 2024 is less than two years away. This needs to be near the commissioning phase right now for it to launch in 2024.

You speak as if you have facts at your disposal, yet you have failed--again--to account for your lies.

You could just say, "Sorry. I give this project low credibility. I misrepresented the article because, forgive me, I just don't see this as being in any way likely."

And that would be fine. Why not just do that? You misphrased, you misspoke, misread. Why keep doubling down and deflecting when you're obviously the one in the wrong? Admitting to a mistake won't kill you.

Have you ever heard of simile? Hyperbole?

I think it's clear that tomorrow was never literal. Why are you pushing this so hard about this?

Is his complaining that the journalists don't do basic research, accept marketing press packets as gospel, and report on facts that don't pass basic sniff tests really that upsetting to you?

Part gimmick and part theatrical accuracy in showing microgravity.  It raises the ante which means that if you want a good space blockbuster, you have to book them or launch your own.
