Jolting technologies provide such a disruptive advantage, that the ability to apply them across different fields, cross contaminating and taking advantage of the increasing rate of acceleration, is irresistible.
SpaceX is designing, prototyping and testing a new generation of spacecraft called Starship. Starship serial number 8, SN8, flew to the altitude of 12.5 kilometres just a few days ago. During that test flight, many different categories of new solutions were tested, which have never before been tried. Practically all of the steps of this historic test flight were successful, and even though as usual, Elon Musk lowered the expectations beforehand, saying that most likely the test would fail, it was a great success.
The mission of SpaceX is to establish a city on Mars with a million people or more before the end of the century. In order to reach that goal, an increasing rate of innovation is needed. The successful test of SN8 is testimony to this jolting nature of SpaceX and the jolting nature of the new phase of space exploration that we have entered.
The way this has been achieved is through the increasingly sophisticated simulations that we can run, thanks to the power of our computers. For Internet of Things networks, or robotic systems, there is no difference between simulation and reality. As the feedback loop of sensors and actuators is trained at a much improved rate in simulations, when the time comes to test it, the performance will be surprisingly, joltingly good.
