What kind of CPUs does Crew Dragon run in comparison to regular desktop CPUs? I know that there are multiple CPUs for redundancy but how would one of those units compare to, let's say, a desktop i9 9900k?


We use a dedicated quad core processor, similar in power to a 5 year old phone. - Sofian


What a funny question, they probably think space needs the latest and most powerful CPU, a custom design i11 50000k server grade.
People think Elon is mining bitcoins in space???
Most people probably never realize size and heat is a big negative in space.

They forget to realize we landed on the moon with a 2Mhz processor. The space shuttle uses 8086 CPU, and the ISS is running under a 80386 system.

SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, July 8 at 11:59 a.m. EDT, 15:59 UTC, for launch of its tenth Starlink mission, which will include 57 Starlink satellites and 2 satellites from BlackSky, a Spaceflight customer. Falcon 9 will lift off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission to the International Space Station, launch of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, and the fourth and seventh Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

The BlackSky Global spacecraft will deploy sequentially beginning 1 hour and 1 minute after liftoff, and the Starlink satellites will deploy approximately 1 hour and 32 minutes after liftoff. Starlink satellites will be deployed in a circular orbit, as was done on the first through fourth Starlink missions. Additionally, all Starlink satellites on this flight are equipped with a deployable visor to block sunlight from hitting the brightest spots of the spacecraft – a measure SpaceX has taken as part of our work with leading astronomical groups to mitigate satellite reflectivity.

You can watch the launch webcast here, starting about 10 minutes before liftoff. If you would like to receive updates on Starlink news and service availability in your area, please visit starlink.com.

Thanks for the update. Nice to get updates without actually having to on to NASA site.

NASA-SpaceX astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico after months aboard the International Space Station, marking the first splashdown of an American crew spacecraft in 45 years.

Since the Space Shuttle missions did not splash down instead landed like a plane  :D
