has been plugging Flight Club data into his scopes to do automated tracking for Falcon 9 launches and it's crazy accurate For the first few Starship launches I'll be estimating, but after 2 or 3 I'll have the trajectory nailed down And I'm cheap 😜
Replying to @flightclubio @MarkRober and 2 others
That's amazing! The only thing is, now we want to try and "fly" our @Blackmagic_News Ursa 12K... which is HEAVY... a Meade scope's motors won't be able to handle that at all... It was already kinda getting jerky and inconsistent with our small Z-Cams on there
 
Tomorrow morning @blueorigin will be conducting the second launch of humans on their New Shepard rocket!! NS-18 will carry the incredible @StarTrek actor @WilliamShatner, @cboshuizen, @CaptainClinical, and @AudreyKPowers! Article written by @AustinDeSisto everydayastronaut.com/ns-18-new-shep…

I teach rocket science and engineering principles. Any bias I have is purely what I think is “cool” or “fun” but has no impact on a company or stock really. I still disclose my personal investments to be safe and open, but so much of what I do is objective, not traditional media.
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
How much? I might be down to fund that.
Replying to @TroyRubert @OPT_Telescopes and 3 others
Our last rig was about $10k in gear. Our new set up if we went with a proper tracking head alone would be about $30k, and that's not including any glass 😳 This stuff is $$$
 
In reply to @CrampedEyes
Oh man, you're right! @stuffmadehere would also be killer at this!!!
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
We might just stick with photo lenses, like an 800mm F5.6 and some converters to hopefully get a little better resolution this time around... but that requires a BIG BEEFY motorized mount...
Replying to @Erdayastronaut
I still think this would be a fun collaboration with @MarkRober or @SimoneGiertz to try and make the ultimate tracking camera for rocket launches 😉 It'd be super fun to see their face when SuperHeavy lifts off!!!
 
Our partnership with @OPT_Telescopes has ended, so it's time for a new tracking scope! Our team is looking for new tracking assets for Starship Orbital! Anyone out there work for an optics or robotics company who might want to partner? 🔭@andrutay/@considercosmos/@SpacePadreIsle

I think you're reading too much into it. I don't believe they need you to actively help train the system, just drive it. I'm the first to admit that what I used to think was the center of the road in hindsight probably wasn't, and autopilot is more accurate.
Replying to @paul_lawrie
You don’t want to be in the center of the road… you want to be on the right side of the road… it’s literally in the center of a huge wide road. Completely wrong by all accounts and it always does it. So I just constantly disengage on that road
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
Just a minor thought: Remember all those bots that people could train on twitter and co? which ended up really really bad in most cases. So while at a first glance driver input might sound good. The potential for abuse is also really high. and could lead to worse behavior.
Replying to @darixzen
It’s still in a closed beta. I’m not suggesting opening up crowd sourcing to the public, but to people in the small beta who (with training) would want to do what’s best and would be kicked out if their data was continually erroneous.
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
that would be cool if the training could be crowd-sourced. however doing so could be a liability for tesla, as people who know how their input would affect the training could manipulate it in potentially malicious ways. they will likely stick to data that is driver agnostic.
Replying to @Justin_Struble
The people who are in the beta are extremely limited and I can’t imagine there’d be anyone with ill intent at this stage since it isn’t public. It would however require some training to make sure the labeling is done right
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
At the end of the day, I realize the INSANNNNNE mountain of work to be done for FSD to truly work on its own sans driver. It’s going to take an unbelievable amount of machine learning which can best be done with good human labeling to train the good in and the bad out
Replying to @Erdayastronaut
I’ll continue to be a vigilant driver while using FSD, because I believe it could be the solution to many untimely deaths on the road and a future I want to live in. I can’t wait for this to mature more and I’m excited to be able to help. Thanks for listening ✌️
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
In general, the best thing Tesla could do with this beta is train us drivers better to label things with more authority and influence. Teach us how to properly label things most effectively. Have a course we can take and be rewarded by our work with free supercharging

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
It also feels like I should have an option to bookmark a section of drive and it then imports the video and the path taken into the Tesla mobile app. After the drive the driver can redraw the correct line the car should have taken. Do this enough and it’d be a VERY powerful label

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
It’s also not communicated that if the car is doing something too slow, by applying some additional accelerator input to say “creep forward more” or “speed up”, I don’t know if my additional input is being logged or considered, therefore I’m not sure if I’m supposed to do it

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
At the same time, I have no way to positively reinforce the car and label a “wow great job! It nailed that!” And this is something I think could be as valuable as forceful takeovers. There are tricky driving situations and it would be great to have a positive reinforcement button

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
Tesla should be telling drivers to correct the car like you would a new driver and actively make forceful corrections so it knows where to drive, if that’s indeed the case. I assume that’s best but I don’t see many videos of drivers actively correcting for minor misbehaviors

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
It’s my assumption that by forcing the car out of autopilot by correctively steering over to the right side of the lane would be a negative reinforcement label that would help the NN know it was doing wrong. But this is not communicated by Tesla.

In reply to @Erdayastronaut
My first thought actually doesn’t have to do with the car, the software or hardware, but with what I should be doing to maximize labeling for the neural net to work. For instance, the car tries to drive down the dead center of a busy street, not at all where I would drive…

I finally spent a little time with Tesla’s FSD. A few thoughts… In general, it’s likely the right approach to do real world testing of a fleet like this, but I’m so glad this is a closed beta. The car still drives like a teenager and makes wrong decisions quite often [a thread] pic.twitter.com/yeBN4nlXgE

If you're a tank watcher, if you're someone who watches the streams all day, or if you're anywhere near Starbase, let's try and figure this one out. Keep your eyes / ears open! What a bummer 🙁
#Starbase people: Camera missing/taken from off the side of Highway 4. Last seen about a quarter mile from the launch site at about 8:15. Please advise if found.
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
Thank you very much for your reply. Thank you for who you are and what your doing. I am missing you weekly and monthly videos. I can not wait for your new release.
Replying to @brian_swix
Thank you! Glad to hear from you. It is strange to hear “weekly and monthly”, I’ve never done even monthly videos. I think the most scripted videos I’ve put out in a year is less than 10. And OLF was the only thing close to weekly, and that didn’t count really 🙈
 
In reply to @tenjin387
He would end only asking things about SpaceX
Replying to @Itzalpean @tenjin387 and 2 others
I don’t think the word SpaceX came up once in my tour with @Firefly_Space… and considering only one of my videos this year has anything to do with SpaceX, I think you’re misjudging a bit 🤔
 
In reply to @brian_swix
Sorry, but I’m not sure how much more “bringing space down to Earth” I can be than taking the public behind closed doors up close and personal with hardware and getting lots of fun and exciting details from experts. My videos are out there to help make these convos digestible.
Don’t worry, once you see the Soviet family tree video, you’ll understand that I’m still working very hard on bringing space down to Earth for everyday people. You’ll see all the effort and the extra attention to make an insanely confusing topic understandable
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
Tim I know you are really enjoying yourself and doing a lot o great work on a lot of different projects. Please remember " Bringing space down to Earth for everyday people" I think your missing the mark over the last few months. Please remember we all love you don't change!

Join me on an incredible behind the scenes tour of @Firefly_Space’s factory & test site with their CEO, Tom Markusic! We get really technical, right up to their engines and go over so many details with a fine tooth comb, you HAVE to see this one!!! Enjoy! youtu.be/ac-V8mO0lWo
 
In reply to @Erdayastronaut
Like to suggest shorter videos, posted more often. I like watching you videos, but often have to skip the longer ones until I can find time for them.
I’m really happy with what I’m doing. There’s a ton of channels scratching the surface of topics. And there’s others who dive right in but risk going over their audience’s heads. I want to start at page one and have all the info in one place for ANYONE to learn real deep!
 
Tomorrow I’ll be releasing an amazing one hour long tour of @Firefly_Space’s factory and test site with their CEO Tom Markusic! This is chalked full of amazing details, I learned a ton from Tom! I can’t wait for you to see it! Patrons / members, the link is available now 🙌

With such a huge presence in Texas, will @GregAbbott_TX actually let you sell your cars in his state? Seems absurd one of the most American made cars, made right there in Texas, isn’t even allowed to be sold there, sans jumping through hoops.

I feel like you kinda summed it up there pretty well honestly 😉 I don't tend to make videos like that, too topical. I like explaining science and physics stuff best.
 
I can't wait for you to see this interview & factory/test site tour with @Firefly_Space's CEO, Tom Markusik! There are SO MANY rocket science details 🤤 Tom has a PHD in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering! I learned so much talking to him! Hopefully I can release it this weekend!

Hi @Erdayastronaut When u seeing Elon musk again for update on starship ?
Maybe after SuperHeavy makes it through static fire test campaign and it gets closer to launching?! I'm not sure!

It was so hard back in the day before there were superchargers anywhere near Brownsville or SPI. The closest used to be in McAllen, and yes, one time it was the fastest option for me… to drive to McAllen, literally top off to 100% and then drive back to Boca 😬
Replying to @Erdayastronaut @ChrisG_NSF and 1 otherfalse
That being said, I’d LOVE it if there were a few public superchargers at Starbase! Maybe attached to a small convenient store 🤔
