Review: I Was Scared To Say This To NASA... (But I Said It Anyway) - SmarterEveryDay


This is a talk that Destin from Smarter Every Day gave at the 2023 American Astronautical Society von Braun Space Exploration Symposium. Basically, a gathering of higher-ups in the space industry including those responsible for the Artemis mission to take us back to the moon.

The talk is largely about communication and why he doesn't think we'll be able to launch in two years (e.g. at the time of the talk no one knew how many refueling rockets about necessary en-route)

I don't have a good TL;DR because he covers so much ground. Check the notes below or dig into the video yourself.

The more complex a system is, the more communication you need to make it work.
