Utter fantasy, you will know this one day, SpaceX is a scam, a squillion dollar one who, like NASA; have done precisely FA in space. We have nothing up 'there' and never will, its not possible. Go ahead and rage, its cold hard truth and every human on earth will know it in the end. Check it out or be duped fools - your freedom of choice. Have a great day all.

It sucks in the metal fatigue department, though. That's why aluminum airframes have strict "flight hours" limit, until they must be scrapped.

FYI that aluminum CNC'd away IS NOT wasted. It's collected, melted down, and reused to make new aluminum billets. At least it is in any other business besides SpaceX. I assume they do the same. No one would just "waste" that much aluminum and just throw it away, actually wasting it.

As a machinist with 9 years experience... I resent the idea of that an isogrid is very expensive to machine... I would estimate $150 per ft^2 in aluminium, -on the very high end. If it costs more, your machinists are padding.

5:05 , you say that CNC ing isogrid from thicker material produces a lot of waste (95%). This is most likely not true. It is recycled. It is easy to remove lubricants and remelt it, or as a part of another batch, and create another cast. It is just the problem of time and big machine required. These machines are rather costly, and it probably day or two to machine out one section even when toolpaths are optimized and very high feed rates are used with first past done using coarse milling and big tools.

It's odd that i never heard of them trying the aluminum and carbon fiber laminate which is carbon fiber between two layers of aluminum. It doesn't require the same autoclave curing as basic CF does and it's shape-able. It's not the easiest to weld but the results are impressive and it has a double hull like protection if something goes wrong.
