My favorite parts from the bot are:

1) The bot kicks off its own “simplified” fuel calculations with, "**Evidently it changes when fuel is consumed - but I keep it constant…**”. Absolutely hilarious. Calculations based upon no change in mass due to fuel consumption pretty much blows up the bot’s entire premise right out of the starting gate.

2) Astrodynamics professionals try and explain that no, the bot’s “simple” equations are incorrect. "*There are no "my" equations; there are only the proper equations. Your "simplifications" based on your obviously limited knowledge of astrodynamics do not suffice. I've given you the hint: you must consider the natural logarithm of the ratio of start and end masses.*” Again, hilarious. Just making up its own calculations with no connection to reality.

3) Lastly, the bot is so stupid it can’t even tell the difference between

2400^2 - 1500^2 = 3,510,000

And this

(2400-1500)^2 = 810,000

All of this crazy, incorrect data is what the bot uses to “judge” entries to some non-challenge. It’s like being the judge of a spelling bee and telling a contestant they lost because they spelled a word according to the dictionary and not according to the judge's “simplified” spelling. Pure insanity.

Thanks for bringing the thread back to topic - manned space flight fuel consumption. I pay you €1M if you can calculate the fuel consumed for a return flight from Earth to the Moon, Mars and an Assteroid. I look forward to your calculations and style for transfer of the prize money.

The bot would actually have to start with the correct calculations in order to judge. Considering that the bot is an idiot and didn't even start with the correct ones, there is no challenge.

You sound like a loser of the Challenge insulting the judge.

I'm insulting a bot.

The bot doesn't seem to understand that it's using its own made up incorrect calculations. Literally saying 2+2=5. If anyone doesn't use the bot's incorrect calculations then the judge-bot will deem it a loss. That's not a challenge. The bot can't start with a wrong calculations and expect someone using the right calculations to win.

The

*challenge* is not a challenge. It's based on a false made-up premise from the get-go.

As evidenced by the bot's inability to use the correct math:

1) The bot kicks off its own “simplified” fuel calculations with, "

**Evidently it changes when fuel is consumed - ***but I keep it constant*…”. Absolutely hilarious. Calculations based upon no change in mass due to fuel consumption pretty much blows up the bot’s entire premise right out of the starting gate.

2) Astrodynamics professionals try and explain that no, the bot’s “simple” equations are incorrect. "

*There are no "my" equations; there are only the proper equations. Your "simplifications" based on your obviously limited knowledge of astrodynamics do not suffice. I've given you the hint: you must consider the natural logarithm of the ratio of start and end masses.*” Again, hilarious. Just making up its own calculations with no connection to reality.

2400^2 - 1500^2 = 3,510,000

And this

(2400-1500)^2 = 810,000

This

*challenge* is invalid. Period.

You still sound like a loser of the Challenge insulting the judge.

As expected, still just a bot response. The bot is an idiot. There's nothing to lose as the bot is using an incorrect made-up calculation. As referenced above. No one can lose a challenge that isn't a challenge at all because the starting premise is wrong. The bot doesn't even know that depleting mass MUST be factored in. And the bot can't even perform basic middle school math.

The bot got this wrong:

3) Lastly, the bot is so stupid it can’t even tell the difference between

2400^2 - 1500^2 = 3,510,000

And this

(2400-1500)^2 = 810,000

The "

*challenge*" is moot. There is nothing to lose as there is no

*challenge*. Maybe it's time to update the bot so it isn't so stupid.
