As several people have noted, Abassid traveler Ahmad Ibn Fadlan's 921 account of the Vikings (who he called the Rus) and their cleanliness does NOT inspire confidence (see these two excerpts I've put together). They *are* washing themselves and combing, but....

Conclusion: we can get an order of magnitude improvement in efficiency just by launching everything only to LEO and doing everything else from there.

SpaceX Super Heavy and Starship

Up to 100T to LEO
Up to 100T to moon / 50T back with refueling in LEO, or
Up to 100 people to the moon with refueling in LEO (!)
Up to 1100T propellant for Startship (sic?)
* Loiter time in LEO for propellant launches?

@riversimple@twitter.com The trouble is that the crux of your article - that although the hydrogen drivetrain may be less efficient, the overall vehicle isn't - doesn't actually hold up either. The hydrogen wastes so much electricity, it needs more than a 5 seat SUV.
