Deep Space Updates – SpaceX, Hayabusa Shoots an Asteroid, Mars Quakes – April 26th

Click any button for sharing!


A bundle of news and updates on missions I’ve previously talked about with recent events. Information on the Dragon 2 anomaly is still thin on the ground, but NASA & SpaceX are moving forward with the next Dragon 1 launch to the ISS so that’s an indication that they have probably eliminated any likelihood of commonality with Dragon 1.

Exploding dragon images by some sneaky SpaceX employee who’s probably in trouble with his mum for such bad language.

    It ain’t missing it.
    4:22 is 4:20 too.

  2. J R

    The smoking Dragon capsule…nice. haha

  3. Cawfee Dawg

    Elon should turn off his phone and be in bed at 4.20 every day. 🤣

  4. Dante Alighieri

    Dear Mr. Manley,
    We like the toys in the background.
    Share your toys.
    I’ll be sending a P.O. box address shortly.
    Thank you.

  5. TheFLOW1978

    I’ve heard that being late is one of the side effects.

  6. Mike Delyea

    Mars drill thing-a-ma-bob – maybe hitting permafrost. Permafrost is hard as rock.

  7. Motzer Alles Mist

    Great show !
    We can damage an asteroid and have fotos of that damage ! Thats awesome !
    Lets make more damage !
    rock n roll !

    “flat earth” friends? FRIENDS?

  10. Darren Signal

    We probably need a video on why the 420 reference is funny.

  11. Matthew Hajicek

    Did you say “Mono-Lethal-Hydrazine”? Sounds about right.

    What an incredible failure mode you discovered!

  14. Gabriel DeVault

    420 jokes while wearing a Santa Cruz shirt. WTG Scott!

  15. Charlie Fox

    I love that I am reading Delta-V at this same time that I see this. Thanks Scott!

  16. BaronVonBlair

    You live in California yet sound like my great grandfather. :) 👍

  17. Ikarim

    Out of everything, a shaped charge was the last thing I would imagine being used constructively in science, the more you learn

  18. José Ángel Martínez Navarro

    Hello
    Are you going to do a video about momo3 rocket of ist?

  19. diGritz1

    I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the asteroid.
    As for who shot the crew capsule…… My guess is find the lady in the babushka and you’ll have your answer.

  20. MonsterSound

    Always great to get your toke on things. 👀

  21. J.A.Ratt85

    You could say his plans went Up In Smoke

  23. U-D13

    I’m unlikely to be the first to say it, but — “puff!” goes the Dragon

  24. Ruben Leal

    What if one of the many sensors triggered the instantaneous disassembly?

  25. Pineapple

    People rely on Scott’s info more than I think Scott realises…keep it up! : )

  26. Sean McDonough

    2:43 – Probably a bit of a stupid question, but are we sure Mars didn’t just experience an impact event?

  27. Mike Gofton

    Great work Scott, your updates are well researched.

  28. mandie sayavedra

    Meteor Strike (IC 1995)

  29. Sean McDonough

    6:22 – Better call a plumber!

  30. Chris Chris

    No. Fantastic going Hayabusa!
    One small space craft with many operational uses.

  31. HK Normann

    I love your space updates. Keep them coming. Love from Norway 👌❤️

  32. Christian Woodland

    Thanks for the updates Scott! 😁👍🚀

  33. David Kaplan

    “I’m Scott Manley. Fly baked” :)

  34. mandie sayavedra

    Secret FisTemple ( IC SubGenius ) #2

  35. matttelz

    That’d be even more ironic if the combined volume of propellant fed through the engines was equivilant to 420kg per second…😒

  36. Don Jones

    Aha! Now it’s clear – it was sabotage, but the target was LZ 1, not Crew Dragon. Done by a cabal of videographers who just want one damn clear continuous view of a drone ship landing.

  37. Colin Jones

    “Fly Safe” has taken on a new (old) meaning here 😂

  38. TheJimtanker

    Hyabusa is a MUCH better probe than Osiris-rex. Totally different class.

  39. angc214

    This just in: CRS-17 launch has been moved up by 2 minutes.

  40. brecht2006

    Always nice to hear the updates from space, from your channel. The only update I get. No other channel. From Belgium, fly save.

  41. Bill Cumming

    Dragon2 test was due to a typo!
    The code should have been :
    Dragon2_Rocket_Test_Goes=”Voom”
    Intern programmer typed B instead of a V so you got “Boom”…

  42. K V

    Always informative and entertaining. Keep it up!

  43. Eamon Stack

    Hi Scott, excellent, informative and enjoyable video. Really value your space journalistic insights. Eamon

  44. A T

    thanks again scott! for the 30th time xD please keep doing this

  45. Hội Kỹ Sư Điện Việt Nam

    We are looking forward to exchanging knowledge with you.,,,,,

  46. David Parry

    _Luckily, Elon has announced that he will be the FIRST passenger aboard the FIRST manned SpaceX Dragon Capsule into orbit, to reassure and refute those who suggest the SpaceX launch vehicles are inherently dangerous and shouldn’t be trusted with manned flights._
    In the co-pilot’s seat will be a sack of HyperStrut(tm) prototypes and a bucket of unicorn’s tears…

  47. maxfmfdm

    can voyager I and II even be considered worthy of DEEP SPACE UPDATES?

  48. John Johansen

    4:07 They’ve even got simulated footprints.

  49. KPX 1138

    Another great video as usual! Keep up the good work and keep the videos coming!

  50. zeph94

    I’ve been watching for years but just now subbed. Please keep these “Space briefings” up!

  51. Scott Gauer

    CRS-7 had nothing to do with the COPV, it had to do with the metallic strut holding it in place. The COPV itself was fine (until AMOS)

  52. Ben Adians

    Litterly was trading news article about it when this popped up

  53. Tyler Massey

    OMG Dude. You’re the best! Thanks for everything you do.

  54. 1_2_Die

    Scott Manley, a god in the Olymp of modern education.
    Thank you, Sir!

  55. trashmail8

    Aeronautics Safety Advisory Panel… Also known as “ASAP” :-D

  56. Oliepolie

    Keep it up with the space updates!

  57. mjproebstle

    i shot the sheriff, but i didn’t shot the deputy
    b. marley

  58. Moto

    Hey Scott the Earth is Cubical not flat ;)

  59. Sean Whelan

    “the video *leaked”*
    I see what ya did there, Scott!

  60. Nigward

    There’s just one thing in the video that annoys me, where is the crew capsule on your Saturn V model in the background?

  61. Sam Smith

    Hey wait just a minute, the CRS-17 launch happens at 4:20 too!

  62. AnotherGlenn

    There’s that HP printer again. It hasn’t worked in years. He probably keeps his weed in there.

  63. fatehyabali

    In Pakistan 420 is associated with fraud.

  64. Spegix1

    btw I am from Czech Republic and our international phone extension is +420. Are you sure Elon does not have relatives in Czech? :D

  65. Josh Baer

    First I just learned how to play kerbal but now I watch every video!

  66. Curious Learner

    The Japanese with their deep space bombs.
    The asteroid better not be some hidden alien base., wouldn’t want a repeat of Pearl Harbor and aliens coming to nuke us.

  67. RocKiteman _ 2001

    *_”HELIUM??_** I thought you said to PRESSURIZE those tanks with **_HYDROGEN!!”_* 😝😝😝😝

  68. SpydersByte

    “place to bring your best flat earth friend” …as though flat earth people have friends :’D

  69. Freeland Salsburg

    The talk I witnessed, standing around in the hallway (Water cooler talk) at NASA from the SpaceX guys was that the anomaly with the Dragon Capsule Explosion was probably with Helium (again) not the Fuel. This was last Wednesday afternoon.

  70. NoFaceMan6

    explosions definitely do cast shadows

  71. TastyBusiness

    “I’m Scott Manley, fly dank.”

  72. Maico

    wouldn’t it be handy when you would use a ‘digital pointer’ pointing at the specific detail in a drawing that you talk about ?

  73. radarw64

    Thanks again! I love your no nonsense way of just telling us what is going on. I like to keep up with things and be in the know. Fly Safe!

  74. ragnarox16

    I know it’s old af, but can you talk about the x33 canceled delta nasa rocket and its kickass aerospike engines?

  75. MarkTheMorose

    Hayabusa: Earth, we tried to deliver your parcel, but you were out.
    Mark Watney: Earth, I fixed the Insight drill. Can I come home now?

  76. HolyPastrami

    Being able to watch a serious YouTube series about actual space exploration going on… what a time to be alive.

  77. Cole Smith

    Hayabusa keeps getting more and more exciting with everything working correctly!

  78. JaseCJay

    That’s nothing… next year, ALL April is 420!

  79. cmilkau

    For the 95% of the world who use metric units: 1000 psi ~~ 7 MPa = 70 bar ~~ 70 atm :D

  80. Kineth1

    10:42 I was gonna make a joke about pot, but then I got high.

  81. DreamskyDance

    I think those people working with hayabusa mission should be given bigger budget and maybe even cooperate with other space agencies ( NASA … ESA ) … for some large science mission like that ala cassini or something … multipraktik multiyear science exploration spaceship ..basically ( like cassini was ).
    Anyway..that would be nice to see … XD

  82. Kenny Plays

    Hey 4:22 is 4:20 too

  83. Ctrot

    Maybe this Dragon video will prompt people to stop recording videos in portrait mode. I can only hope.

  84. rommelfcc

    Yes take the fight to the asteroids, that will learn them for attacking us with their suicide tactics..

  85. Michael Martin

    “Hey, we’re testing the escape thrusters, have you got the 4k Gopros in armoured casings?”
    “Uhh… I might have slightly forgot to order them? …I do have my first camera phone from 2003 in a drawer though, that might still work”

  86. Sky173

    “Flat Earth friends”… they’ll still think it’s a hologram, regardless… lol

  87. seasong

    3:00 This is why NASA needs oil drillers, because they dont know jack about drilling

  88. Lino Riester

    Just wanted to say that it is incredible to see a space series so concise and still really well-researched. The insight and new information you always give in your videos are just fantastic. Thanks, Scott!

  89. Zod

    Got a foot deep on Mars and hit a big rock? Who could have guessed that was going to happen? *end sarcasm*

  90. Spanos

    What do you mean they can’t send anyone to fix it? Just tell Starman to pop on over and you’ll give him gas money for his troubles.

  91. Astria

    Jeff Bezos was seen quickly leaving the test site.

  92. brianoc10

    I dont follow many youtubers Scott but you are by far my favourite. Keep doing what you’re doing man, you’ve a long term fan in me.

  93. sofuckingannoying

    Never noticed until now that Scott has antennae on his head. See for yourself – 0:35

  94. RyllenKriel

    Hayabusa isn’t a scientific mission, it’s a secret Japanese defense force mission to attack kaiju in space. King Ghidorah was actually taking a nap on that asteroid, they missed with the shaped charge and now we’re all doomed!

  95. Dan Lane

    When you mentioned Hayabusa, I immediately pictured starman riding a space motorcycle shooting asteroids.

  96. Alessandro Savino

    They won’t miss it because 4:22 is four twenty too…

  97. Jerry Rupprecht

    So they shot the asteroid and then shot the shooting of the asteroid?

  98. Michael Lew

    Thank you, I like getting these little summaries of space events! Trying to get science news from google news etc. can be sketchy, to say the least.

  99. Cody'sLab

    Scott, you’re the best! Can’t wait till you are sharing news about my rockets. ;)

  100. Space Praesidium

    When Scott makes a sad level weed joke… but you still laugh.
