    Who is the ULA and why is everyone so hell-bent on getting to mars or wherever so recently ?

    This is a very strong, dependable, beautiful rocket.
    If only it wasn't so ridiculously expensive! (about $400M per launch)

    The commentary is ruined by the use of nautical miles and feet per second instead of normal metric measurements ... the rest of the planet has no idea what these figures are ... please use metric for international commentary!!

    Legit question:

    What is the Payload? It must be huge to need a D4.

    Saturn V was bigger, this burns 3,000 pounds of fuel per second while the Saturn V burned 20 tons per second

    4:47 tells you all you need to know. They could easily put cameras on the rocket/satellite to show in real time the stages, but they instead show you CGI. They have NEVER launched a satellite into space showing actual video footage of its stages. Now, ask yourself why not?

      +Mark Webcraft Apart from the rocket ripping apart thing, what if they burn out at the same time, is it a big deal? They could just jettison the upper stage and let the 3 cores attached

    • Mark Webcraft
      Mark Webcraft 13 days ago

      it will once the side booster drop off. If all engines ran at 100% to low in the atmosphere it could rip the rocket apart so they throttle the engines down. Also, the core must run longer than the boosters, so its ran at lower thrust

    1 + R^2 I=m X R^2 mass = weight / acceleration on earth 32.2 pounds has mass of 1 slug . F=ma 32.2 pounds = 1 slug x 32.2 feet/second/second. sea level acceleration = 32.2 feet/second/second. speed = feet/second. acceleration is how much the speed changes per second. also for larger r changes , g= g(R/r)^2

    • David Knisely
      David Knisely 2 months ago

      Each Saturn V cost more to build and launch than the Space Shuttle launches cost. For most things, we don't need that massive of a lifting capacity, which is why things like the Delta IV, Atlas V, Ariane 5, and SpaceX Falcon 9 make more sense, at least commercially.

    • BadWolf HS
      BadWolf HS 2 months ago

      Not very likely, NASA plans to use the SLS rocket for the Orion spacecraft, and it's quite likely that SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket will take people to the Moon within the next year or two which is even sooner than SLS. The Delta rockets are also not certified to carry human passengers, though if they did rate it for human passengers it certainly has enough lift to get a capsule near the Moon.

      Hydrogen/Oxygen fueled, you can tell by the color of the exhaust and the lack of smoke trails.

  • ψ Holographic Principle

    i know its rocket science but igniting a substance to achieve propulsion seems a bit primitive and outdated at this point. Oh wait, that makes sense, every time man invents something it seriously impedes many great & much more viable solutions that could follow. What because someone will lose their job? because some butt fucking rich company wont have more money they dont know what to do with? give me a break. I dont give a fuck. we should be on mars already. This shit is fucking primitive, a fucking flame coming out of a metal can. Like wtf, thats caveman shit.
