Flyby burn hopefully starts on time now, and completes its 3+ minute burn.. There's LOS for the next 20 minutes so we won't know anything until that ends.

The narrator's voice is bearable, but her delivery is hackneyed; she misspeaks/corrects/stops/starts/halts so often it's getting to be a real f*cking drag. She needs a lot more training before she fills this role again.

Mean while SpaceX sent their booster back to the assembly building to be modified because they can't get it right the first time.

How many people has SpaceX killed because they couldn't get it right?

NASA's count is 17.

You seem to implying that Artemis launched on its first attempt.

Or that it did not repeatedly go back to the VAB.

NASA's count is higher.  That count does not include non-astronauts or astronauts killed in training.

Though to be fair, I expect SpaceX will eventually pass up NASA's body count especially if they put dozens of people in a starship.

It never suffered an explosion. It also has a fully functional man rated capsule.

What does SpaceX have for their second stage and capsule?

I guess not the price tag.

Look, both are impressive for different reasons. I think outer space is big enough for both.

A rocket with a design basis of "I want it to look like a 50s scifi movie rocket" by a mad man has no business carrying people in space.

I don't quite follow your objection. You don't like how it looks? Or you don't like it because it's ostensibly under a mad man's control? If it's the latter, hooo buddy, I've got some bad news for you about the origins of the entire US rocket program.

The objection is to the lack of engineering principle. You let them mission parameters dictate design, not some whim. Also throwing shiat at a wall and seeing what sticks is not proper engineering. Best effort before test especially when it comes to man rated vehicles.

SpaceX's approach to designing starship and its booster have been half assed at best.
