Re: SpaceX News

Elon said the tooling has already been ordered. So they do not even have the tooling on site yet. The factory is almost complete for BFR production , given this we may see the first demo flight of the BFR sooner that most anticipate, I do not believe Elon would send the first ever two BFR to Mars ....

Re: SpaceX News

BFR will replace all of SpaceX launchers, even Falcon 9 because it can be operated more cost efficiently due to the fact that the second stage is reusable as well and reuse is more rapid than with F9. And they already have at least one mission for BFR and that is to launch the SpaceX internet satel...

Re: Lawaranceville E-Newsletter

By the way, I was wrong about the SEC regulations. It's not a minimum investment of $1000 but a maximum number of 500 non-accredited investors. That means that, if LPPF managed to get investments from 500 non-accredited investors, each one would need to invest an average of $800 in order for LPPF t...
