Elon Musk is back to granting wishes on Twitter by inviting a lucky fan and vlogger to have a talk for a possible SpaceX SN8 Starship Tour and in-person presentation on space agencies’ headquarters soon.
The SpaceX CEO invites the lucky fan to a sit-down discussion in the vlogger’s area on Boca Chica to explain more of the popular SN8 Starship for public knowledge.
SpaceX and Tesla’s eccentric Chief Executive Officer, Elon Musk, is letting a lucky fan and vlogger to have a sit-down talk with him during his weekly visit to SpaceX’s Launch Facility in Boca Chica, Brownsville, Texas. Boca Chica’s launch facility houses the famous SpaceX SN8 Starship known to be one of the most powerful launch vehicles available.
Elon Musk’s Twitter account gets a flood of requests daily, with people tagging Musk in different sightings of his product, such as the Starship spacecraft lines, Tesla vehicle videos, and updates from the CEO’s many companies that he manages. It is not unusual for Musk to answer or interact with fans on the social media platform.
SpaceX’s most recent venture is the breathtaking full stainless steel spacecraft, the SN8 Starship, which offers one of the most promising technologies on intergalactic travels. The reusable spacecraft is one of SpaceX’s most talked about the innovation of the company, primarily because of its stainless steel design and nose flaps, both never before seen on existing previous ships.
Recently, SpaceX’s SN8 Starship encountered a problem with its design and assembly because of the attaching “nose flaps” that could detach once on space’s rigorous conditions. Heatproofing tiles cannot answer the moving flap’s problem that melts on high-heat upon departure and descent.
Elon Musk: Lucky Fan’s Request Gains Private Talk with SpaceX Tour from CEO
Famous vlogger and SpaceX Fan Tim Dodd, also known as “Everyday Astronaut,” (@Erdayastronaut), joins the conversation on Twitter about the fan-captured photo of the SN8 Starship that is currently under assembly. The fan took the photo on SpaceX’s Launch Facility on Boca Chica, towering on its feet.
The thread ensues as another fan asks for an update of the SN8 Starship from Elon Musk, to which the CEO answered that SpaceX would provide “in form of a written piece” on the company’s website. Tim Dodd joins the convo and offers to give the public a presentation on SN8’s update.
The vlogger also asked for a tour of the Boca Chica facility, particularly in the SN8 Starship’s location. The suggestion of Tim Dodd grabbed Elon Musk’s attention, to which the CEO suggested a talk with Dodd during his weekly visit to Boca Chica.
Elon Musk wants a “design clarification” to SN8’s most recent changes and upgrades that the public already notices. The SN8 Starship is known to undergo several changes because its design flaw affects its returning mechanism and control, the moving nose flaps, that the company already made modifications to.
