Not really. I only suggest you cannot transfer from orbit around Earth to something else. Just study what I say. Anything ejected from Earth will only orbit Earth.
Have you forgotten all you were taught about the Earth's "Sphere of Influence"? Stand in the corner and learn:
Quote from: Heiwa
So any spacecraft being kicked away from Earth by a rocket will orbit Earth as per Newton and Earth gravity will control the shape of the orbit.
No, the spacecraft "will orbit Earth as per Newton and Earth gravity will control the shape of the orbit" unless it leaves the Sphere of Influence and enters the Sphere of Influence of another object, the Moon or the Sun in the case of the Earth.
I guess you didn't read these:
Gravitational Spheres of the Major Planets, Moon and Sun by G. A. Chebotarev
or  Sphere of influence and gravitational capture radius: a dynamical approach by R. A. N. Araujo et al
Of course, a spacecraft doesn't suddenly leave the Earth's gravitational field and enter, say, the Sun's.
The Sphere of Influence is a guide as to which body has the dominant influence and which can be regarded as a perturbing influence.

Quote from: Heiwa
It cannot start orbiting the Sun and suddenly stop at asteroids etc.
Nobody said that any spacecraft would "suddenly stop at asteroids" !
• Asteroids are not stationary but are orbiting the Sun, though affected by other massive objects.
• The spacecraft would slowly approach the asteroid and match orbits.
Topic is my Challenge. Post #1.
In other words you admit that you were wrong and are confirming that:

Nothing new then!

Well, technically, anything orbiting earth IS ALSO orbiting the sun.
But as long as newtons laws exist, and rockets work in space, there is no reason why you cant move around in space.

No one has ever said, claimed or tried to make a space craft suddenly stop. Unless of course you are talking about the recent attempts to land on the moon, cause those craft where moving quite fast before they suddenly stopped on the surface of the moon. Rather dramatically too.
No, anything orbiting Earth is not orbiting the Sun.
The Moon does not orbit the Sun, it orbits Earth.
No, the Earth--Moon system orbits the Sun so both the Earth and the Moon can be said to be orbiting the Sun.

It would be hopeless because you  seem to know nothing about orbital mechanics.

No, rockets work to get things into orbits around Earth.
Because you dont understand how orbits work, let me tell you a little secret.
To get into orbit around earth, you need to be able to change direction in space or you fall right back down.

You can call yourself any sort of a "nut" you like, even an "asstronut" since you seem to have coined the word.

But at present, to qualify as a astronaut you must have:
• travelled beyond the Kármán line, definition of the boundary of "space" accepted by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and
• landed back on Earth in a spacecraft - though some who "baled out" have been recognised.
So, Heiwa, you'll just have to be satisfied with being an "asstronut" .

No, but I can easily see that you can't understand any of it so you just deny it's possible!

But where does your "some hundred" come from - dreamed up in that demented brain of yours?

Some 564 astronauts have reached orbit and Joseph A. Walker the pilot X-15 Flight 90 who reached 106.01 kilometres on July 19, 1963 followed by other X-15 flights over 100 km.

As you've been told dozens of times there is far more detail of that to be found on the various NASA websites if you bothered to look.

Not only that but they have not only the details of the plans and designs but the reports of how close the actual missions conformed to the designs.

You've already been shown details of the propellant used at each stage of every Apollo mission but you ignored that.

So stop your silly time-wasting trolling.

If you won't believe the experts, NASA, you won't believe anybody! So forget your fake challenges!

So I listened to a podcast with Robert Zubrin yesterday, and what he said about SpaceX's Mars ambitions.
Its quite long.

But what he says was quite interesting.

SpaceX plans to build a butt load of Starships in the coming years.
The pessimistic view could be as many as 1 a week, maybe 1 a month at the very low end.
Launch cost of a few \$'s a kg. This could all happen within the next few years.
This could change everything in how we see space travel, not just for frequency of flights, but cost of flights.

Amazing things can start to happen.
We could literally crowdfund enough money together to launch all the Flat Earthers into the sun.

LOL Elon Musk cant even fulfill the orders of the Tesla cars to meet demand

Then there is the fact that the company is probably going to fail soon. The losses are not sustainable

That 'Boring' company of his is a joke too. It's literally all talk. Then there is is hyperloop dream which is basically just a toy of his and will in no way revolutionize transportation to the masses

Elon is all talk and very little walk. If he says Space-X is doing great and is pumping out all sorts of cool ideas, you can bet it's doing shit and that 'ideas' is where they will forever stay at

If you won't believe the experts, NASA, you won't believe anybody! So forget your fake challenges!

I was silly enough to read the crap you wrote on atmospheric reentry and found this bit:
Quote
To adjust reentry speed at around 8 000 m/s velocity only from EPO costs plenty fuel. Say that your Shuttle arrives at 8.050 m/s speed with kinetic energy 32.401.250 J/kg, but that it should arrive at 7 950 m/s speed and kinetic energy 31.601.250 J/kg to succeed the complete reentry. The difference in kinetic energy is then 800 000 J/kg.
I haven't a clue what you mean by "To adjust reentry speed at around 8 000 m/s velocity only from EPO costs plenty fuel".

But the secret of a successful reentry is to make sure that most of the kinetic energy of the spacecraft is transferred to the atmosphere and does not heat the craft more than necessary. Since the spacecraft are travelling at hypersonic speeds before reentry knowledge of the behaviour high-temperature hypersonic gas flow is essential.

The Wikipedia entry isn't bad as an introduction, have a look at Atmospheric entry.
From that, a craft with a blunt nose shaped like part of a sphere is seen to be effective and can provide some lift and controllability during reentry.
The blunt nose keeps the shock wave well away from the craft greatly reducing that heat transfer - this compares a few shapes:

"These four shadowgraph images represent early re-entry vehicle concepts. A shadowgraph is a process that makes visible the disturbances that occur in a fluid flow at high velocity, in which light passing through a flowing fluid is refracted by the density gradients in the fluid resulting in bright and dark areas on a screen placed behind the fluid.
H. Julian Allen pioneered and developed the Blunt Body Theory which made possible the heat shield designs that were embodied in the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space capsules, enabling astronauts to survive the firey re-entry into Earth's atmosphere.
A blunt body produces a shockwave in front of the vehicle--visible in the photo--that actually shields the vehicle from excessive heating. As a result, blunt body vehicles can stay cooler than pointy, low drag vehicles."

Except for all scientific tests in wind tunnels, etc, that do show that the blunt body produces a shock wave in front of the vehicle.

The photos in my post show exactly that!

Quote from: Heiwa

Your unsupported words are meaningless without evidence!
Please show evidence that ANY "scientific tests in wind tunnels, etc, show that the blunt body is destroyed by excessive pressure and temperature."
Then you need to show credible evidence that ALL "scientific tests in wind tunnels, etc, show that the blunt body is destroyed by excessive pressure and temperature."

Besides, hundreds of reentries using blunt body profiles have been carried out quite successfully.

Do a little introductory reading with: Returning from Space: Re-entry 4.1.7

Then read and debunk this if you can: BRIEF DISCUSSION ABOUT REENTRY VEHICLES

And this: SP-4209 The Partnership: A History of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, Reentry Vehicles: Spheres vs. Blunt Bodies

Then modelling for the Space Shuttle: Exploration of shock formation for a reentering space shuttle: Final Report

Should we keep count? So far you've proven that you nothing about:
The detonation of nuclear explosions.
Orbital Mechanics and transfer orbits.
Atmospheric reentry.
What's next.

There is no evidence that a blunt body produces a shock wave in front of the vehicle, etc.
Except for all scientific tests in wind tunnels, etc, that do show that the blunt body produces a shock wave in front of the vehicle.

Yes, a blunt body changes the flow in front of it but increase the velocity and the density of the gas that contacts the blunt nose, the blunt nose is suddenly destroyed.
Any wind tunnel will confirm this basic experiment.
