Grasshopper 744m Test | Single Camera (Hexacopter)

On Monday, October 7th, Grasshopper completed its highest leap to date, rising to 744m altitude. The view above is taken from a single camera hexacopter, getting closer to the stage than in any previous flight.

Grasshopper is a 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most rockets are designed to burn up on atmosphere reentry, SpaceX rockets are being designed not only to withstand reentry, but also to return to the launch pad for a vertical landing. The Grasshopper VTVL vehicle represents a critical step towards this goal.

Grasshopper consists of a Falcon 9 rocket first stage tank, Merlin 1D engine, four steel and aluminum landing legs with hydraulic dampers, and a steel support structure.

Looks surreal!

What is that 'normal' fire next to the thrust flame? Is it designed that way or some fuel leak or something?

how much money was spent on the equivalent of fuel used?

People are so stupid to believe this is real but then again most are probably kids that don't know about reality. They have been brought up in a CGI world and will believe anything they are fed by the media. It's funny I remember having an argument with some kids that would have fought to the death saying the WWF was real. Only years later once their brains developed they understood their stupidity.

It isn't fake it's just you are all too stupid to know

Ok. I am done. I see a bunch of uneducated liberals, who love to build a conspiracy. Don't you have anything productive you can do?

less then 3 years later they made this a functioning launch platform able to land on the land and on the sea

This is fake!!!! Not the rocket landing...that's not fake, but this footage is. The light is all wrong and so are the reflections.

Автор Owldude000 ( назад)
Such a small launchpad, without any water cooling or anything. Wow.

This is an animation. All animations are able to be seen, and seen by everyone, but one must train their eyes. But alas, those who believe this crap will never see it for what it is as they prefer the comfort of seeing it for what it seems and for what they are told.

You are all irrelevant and your novice level observations are worthless.

The comment sections at every Space Launch Footage will have some Nut claiming its Fake or its CGI. Are Video games rotting our Youths minds!? Seriously, you kids can't tell the difference between Reality and Fantasy? Believe it or not, Rockets were being launched well before Call of Duty was being programed...,.

Wow, just wow

Impressive but impractical...........spend your r&d dollars in other areas of rocket science please

Автор ckotinko ( назад)
I agree with a russian-speaking user who wrote: elon mask is doing it wrong.
His goal is to save the rocket, right? But tons of kerosene and oxygen saved for landing = tons of cargo not delivered to orbit.
Boosters can be slowed down by parashutes to subsonic speed and then captured by special plane or stopped by special small engines. Shuttle boosters landed on water at speed just 20 meters/sec(72km/h).

Absolutely epic! Software + extra-fine thrust control = win! Next step is just figuring out a way to generate thrust without having to haul 50 tons of fuel around with you, out of which 90% is used to propel itself...

Please explain. It goes up and then it goes back down. Is the fact that it landed upright the cool part? What are they hoping to achieve with this capability?
