Rocket Launch 360: Delta IV Heavy NROL-37

  • Опубликовано: 31 окт 2016
  • Step onto the launch pad as ULA’s Delta IV Heavy blasts off with the NROL-37 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office. The Delta IV Heavy is nearly as tall as the U.S. Capitol and generates more than 2.1 million pounds of thrust off the launch pad.

      Easy to make a statement without backing it up, LOX/LH2 is EXPENSIVE to work around.
      Delta IV Heavy costs a lot because of that, but is so much more efficient because of it. Sure, Falcon Heavy can lift more to LEO, but Delta IV Heavy beats it in the long run due to a more efficient upper stage ( , , C3 = 0km/s being escape velocity from Earth) and even Atlas V gets close.
      Delta IV Heavy is expensive though regardless ($322m is not cheap) but when you absolutely, positively, must get it as far as possible into space, it's the lifter of choice. That price tag is why it's being replaced by Vulcan-ACES soon.
      I'm not saying what SpaceX is doing is bad, but it's a different niche in the market. Hell, I've stood next to 1019 and seen two SpaceX launches in person, I definitely do not hate them.

      Liquid hydrogen as the fuel, instead of the much more common (and sooty) RP-1 kerosene jet fuel. Only exhaust byproduct of LH2 and O2 is WATER !! : ]

    Whoa, it was so powerful. And watchout for that grass fire at 3:01 haha

      If you only launch your biggest rocket once or twice a year, you're gonna fool a lot of dumb grass into growing where it doesn't belong. Not to worry: CCAFS has its own fire department.

    Love the IV but dangit, I am a lover of solids!!! Heck, I love all of it. But a fully loaded Delta with a full complement of GEMS is a personal fav of mine.

      Saturn V, Saturn IB, Titan II, Titan IIIE Centaur, Atlas-Agena, Atlas-Centaur are probably one of my favourites. Also a Saturn V MLV variant with UA1205 strap on booster would be on the list if it would have existed.
