    What's up with the burning tower? Is it just burning off the vaporized hydrogen so it doesn't build up near the pad?

    Personally I prefer the Delta V M+ with it's SRM (Solid rocket motors) or SRB (solid rocket booster), I always preferred them on the space shuttle and all of the solid fuel boosters like
    the Ariane family rockets ❤️🇪🇺🇫🇷. I love their power and the SMOKE !!! SRY DELTA 4 HEAVY. BTW, I LOVE NASA I always loved watching live launch but I would love if it could advance even more like SpaceX, like landing stages and going to Mars by the 2020's rather than the 2030's, ❤️❤️❤️ NASA ❤️❤️❤️

    Why did the commentator state the velocity at 47 seconds to be 1341 ft/sec which is clearly supersonic and then again at 2 min 2sec that the velocity was again 1341 ft/sec. I hope he was just reading from a script and lost his place rather than adding commentary after the fact. Does anybody else have a better explanation?

    Still years after this video was published, this Orion mission is the most brain dead idea ever. Just contractors, politicians all seeking jobs for non existent money and power to go someplace that has no future for anyone in the human race. Devote this money to the real problem in our lives, Fukushima Daiichi . Can you say killing us softly?

      I'm glad to have seen your reply. What is so simpleton about things like Fukushima, Hanover, Santa Susana and a myriad of other nuclear disasters that need our primary attention? 1 single atom of plutonium can give a person cancer. You my friend are delusional if you think we can get to Mars without the sum of the human race to live long enough to be taxed into oblivion while the elite party at your and mine expense. Been there and done that. Smiles to you.

      **nutsackmania** Finally a guy that knows what he is talking about. You get a four Martini rating 🍸🍸🍸🍸
      N1 Failures.
      Failure 1 KORD system early shut down
      Failure 2 ingestion of foreign debris caused KORD to shut down all 1st stage engines
      Failure 3 Pogo caused an uncontrollable spin rate and loss of control.
      Failure 4 Ruptured fuel lines in the central 6 engines of stage one caused by hydraulic shock at shut down.

      Like you I see no direct relationship between the number of engines and the failure of the N-1 first stage.
      And as I am sure you know the R-7 AKA Soyuz rocket family has 20 engines in its first stage and is in fact one of the most reliable ELV's ever made.

      Cheers

    Fun fact: for whatever reason, the Delta IV is the only rocket to use liquid hydrogen for both the booster stage, rather than kerosene. So in theory, it's the world's first environment-"friendly" rocket, if you ignore the boosters crashing into the ocean...

    • David Knisely

      +nutsackmania Right now it's mostly produced as a byproduct of fossil fuel extraction, but it is also made by water hydrolysis which can be powered by green energy. So we could make the entire pipeline 100% sustainable if we wanted to.

    Very cool, inspiring! US aerospace techs are conservative historically per safety reasons as they should. In contrast, Soviets space milestones initially outpaced those of American but they paid for the hurried advances in bloods. Russian rockets and Soyuz are reliable old techs yet stagnate compared to burgeoning private US space industry.

      Soyuz 1 lost one Cosmonaut - Vladimir Komarov on April 24th 1967. Three Cosmonauts; Dobrovolski, Patsayev and Volkov died on Soyuz 11, June 30th 1971. In all the years since then, Russia has lost no one else but they've come very close a couple times.

      Learn more about space program victims. Russians have 2 astronauts died during hundreads of mission. NASA has 15 dead already (RIP all of them). Of course sometimes they have some vehicles failed, but who no?
      They have big on ramp explosion with many casualties far ago.
      But for example STS has not ability to automated flight. Russian Buran has to do, and use it for first (and only) mission.
      Its sad, that world of science is divided by politics. If all can work together, we could be on Mars allready.

      just listen. when you are ascending at a slower speed yes their is still heat being generated from air resistance but you aren't traveling newly as fast as it does descending. to maintain stable orbit they have to Tavel 14 times faster then when they were leaving the atmosphere. the only way for a shuttle to descend back down to earth is to just graze the atmosphere to bleed off excess momentum which is where you see the heat generated when re-entering the atmosphere

    • mac9805b
      mac9805b 1 год назад

      +rock3tcat (ⵙⴰⵔⵓⵅ) A partial thrust profile on the main booster core from just before maximum dynamic pressure to MECO on the boosters in actually a really efficient way of flying a rocket like this. This leaves about 1 minute and 20 seconds of burn on the main core engine at full power after the boosters have jettisoned. This is important because the rocket is much lighter at this point and this 100 seconds provides a large change in the vehicle's velocity, that you wouldn't get if you ran the central core at 100% over the whole first stage profile.


  • 100SteveB

    A much more sedate lift off compared to a shuttle launch, they used to leap off the pad. Big beasties are always slow to get moving.

    • mac9805b
      mac9805b 9 месяцев назад

      High thrust, yes. But also high weight and very low fuel efficiency. Liquid fuel rockets are MUCH more efficient.


    • nutsackmania
      nutsackmania 9 месяцев назад

      Shuttle SRBs make a lotta thrust. And SRBs help a lot with payload capacity--are you kidding? Have you read about the proposed five-segment booster upgrade for STS? 20,000 more lbs to the ISS. They are the cheapest way to make that much thrust at sea level.


    • mac9805b
      mac9805b 1 год назад

      +100SteveB Indeed. The liftoff is similar to other liquid fueled first stage rockets, though. Solids on the Space Shuttle / SLS help / will help with getting off the pad quickly but contribute little to the payload capacity due to their low Isp and high dry mass.

      Because the only reason we went to the moon was politics and the fear of communism. There is absolutely no drive like that pushing us to do anything even remotely like that again. It's sad that we need some external drive apart from the amazing knowledge, and technological advances, we would experience. Imagine where we would be if the budget of NASA was like it was back in the 60's ?

    This is NOT a way forward. Orion is going to be another dead end of the space program.It is not a significant leap forward in any way.It uses expendable and costly launch vehicle.Delta 4 Heavy cost $375million per launch+you have cost of Orion itself.How many such flights can NASA afford per year?They are very conservative in their thinking.Trying to solve tomorrow's challenges with yesterday's methods.It is a bit like at the end of the 19th century they faced a problem of inefficient and slow individual transport mostly done by horse-drawn carriages.They could have "improved" it by let's say making lighter carriages or putting pneumatic tyres on them or they could make a big and bold move and invent cars...So which way was better?...There is a British company working on Skylon(a rocket plane with air breathing engines).If they succeed the cost per launch will drop to $5million.Even $10 million would be a revolution in space exploration.The Moon and Mars would be truly within our reach. Orion with its cost and 60 years old concept of delivering cargo to orbit is going nowhere. We will keep on dreaming about Mars for another 20 -30 years. Dream on, dream on........

      +Michal Zwirek :To add to EnDSchultz1s excellent analysis, just look at the SLS/Orion test schedule and NASAs budget history. Neither would accommodate anything beyond substantial LEO ops if even that. The SLS test schedule calls for the next test in late 2018 or about 4 years after the first test shown in the video. The entire Apollo program was conducted in just 5 years from the first Saturn-V all up test launch. NASA's last record budget was half a century ago. Other major government agencies have posted record budgets within the past decade or so. Todays NASA budget is the same as it was in 1960 as a percentage of fed spending. We won't be going to Mars anytime within the next two decades on budgets like that. It also shows how interested most of the public really is regarding spaceflight. The private sector startups are only beginning to really realize how difficult and expensive space is. Space X has been the most conservative, and smart enough to also land NASA cargo contracts. Blue Origins might have the solution to low cost spaceflight in it's SSTO but only time will tell if that's accurate and so far, it's taking more time than any of the startups were prepared for. Way more time.

    It's amazing how you sheep believe this nonsense. The lift off is undoubtedly real, but the moment the craft reaches a certain point and the rocket's "go pro" camera takes over looking downward, it is all CGI based. They can make anything they want happen after that point. In the coming years they will send a bunch of "courageous" men and women to Mars, and it will all be filmed on earth.

      The Nibiru cataclysm is a supposed disastrous encounter between the Earth and a large planetary object (either a collision or a near-miss) which certain groups believe will take place in the early 21st century. Believers in this doomsday event usually refer to this object as Planet X or Nibiru. The idea that a planet-sized object will collide with or closely pass by Earth in the near future is not supported by any scientific evidence and has been rejected as pseudoscience and an internet hoax by astronomers and planetary scientists.[2][3]The idea was first put forward in 1995 by Nancy Lieder,[4][5] founder of the website ZetaTalk. Lieder describes herself as a contactee with the ability to receive messages from extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system through an implant in her brain. She states that she was chosen to warn mankind that the object would sweep through the inner Solar System in May 2003 (though that date was later postponed) causing Earth to undergo a physical pole shift that would destroy most of humanity.[6] The prediction has subsequently spread beyond Lieder's website and has been embraced by numerous Internet doomsday groups, most of which linked the event to the 2012 phenomenon. Since 2012, the Nibiru cataclysm has frequently reappeared in the popular media; usually linked to newsmaking astronomical objects such as Comet ISON or Planet Nine. Although the name "Nibiru" is derived from the works of the ancient astronaut writer Zecharia Sitchin and his interpretations of Babylonian and Sumerian mythology, he denied any connection between his work and various claims of a coming apocalypse.

      I won't waste my time with your lies and your bad faith. I only have one answer : http://spacenews.com/spacex-falcon-9-launches-dragon-lands-first-stage/


    • Russell S
      Russell S 1 год назад

      +MrFriendly B You are not living up to your name! You can call me an ignorant liar until the cows come home, but it won't change the facts. I have followed U.S. space for sixty-three years and worked in and around it for much of that time. I have never lied about it. I don't have to. Since it began it has thrilled me and the nation almost every year -- except after Apollo and again after Shuttle when it was nearly shut down. Hopefully that will never happen again.

      First... the Air Force officer I quoted was comparing the Falcon 9 launch he had just watched with the Titans of 40 years earlier flying from the same pad at CCAFS. He (and I ) were not talking about the Falcon Heavy. It didn't exist yet. It still doesn't. If and when it does, it wlll fly from KSC, not CCAFS.

      Second... you can dwell on the two Shuttle accidents if you want to. I choose to look forward. I'll buy you a beer if and when SpaceX ever manges to match NASA's record by sending 160 crewed flights into outer space on inherently risky, experimental missions never before attempted while losing only two. If you expect that kind of success, it is you who will be sorely disappointed. Were you at Wallops Island when the Orbital/ATK Antares blew up in 2014? Were you down here last year when the SpaceX Falcon blew up two minutes into flight? I was. If you had been, you'd be taking a page from Elon and not bragging about things yet to come. Damned lucky both of those ISS supply flights were unmanned.

      Third... of course the F9H (and all of its supporting infrastructure) is being built with taxpayers' money. Under orders to turn over LEO to private interests, NASA awarded SpaceX over a billion dollars of public funds for ISS supply flights, and signed contracts to dole out $2 billion more. Has the company earned anything like this from its handful of flights for private customers? Maybe all that F9H money is coming out of Elon's private bank account. Or from Tesla. Please. No private start-up in American history has gotten more up front government welfare.

      NASA carries out the directives of Congress, using the money it is allocated each year. After Apollo, it was directed to operate a reusable space plane in LEO and build a space station. Now it is being directed to begin human exploration of the solar system. The agency has never disappointed and won't do so this time. Meanwhile, all good luck to SpaceX. And Godspeed to NASA (and the entire international coalition of spacefaring nations).

Keep believing that they will do it again soon, you'll be disappointed for the rest of your life. BTW we will see in a few months if Falcon Heavy will have the same faith as the N1, you're just showing to us how ignorant you are. And Falcon Heavy received $0 of taxpayer money, you're a bling buy but are you a liar too?

      +Sammy Feldman several reasons. for starters the delta IV heavy is not man rated. (the safety margins are not high enough) it is also going to be phased out because it is aging tech. as well as the real biggie and thats payload to LEO. the delta IV can manage 28 tons whereas the sls can manage between 70 to 130.
      thus the sls can put not just heavier but larger payloads into LEO it will also be man rated.

    This absolutely makes me proud to be American. It'll be amazing when the SLS returns astronauts to the Moon in a few years time, and a few short years later, we'll be on Mars. GO SCIENCE!

      US spends about 3.3% of its GDP on defense. France spends about 1% less, for comparison with another Western power. The US can afford to spend a lot on her military because the US has a GIGANTIC economy.

    I am glad to see us back in space with our Own spacecraft, and not having to bum a ride from the freeking Russians. But Really? we have to re-hash the Apollo "capsule" way of going into space?!? Sure our computers are 10,000 times better then back in the 1960-1971 era, but We really could not come up with something better??

    We should be building Super Star Destroyers and Millenium Falcons by now! We still have not come up with a Hyper-drive??!? Come on man this is 'Merica!!!!

      +Fick Dich No, that's simply not correct. If you have a mission that requires entering the atmosphere of a planet, you're going to want a capsule, because there, the least amount of things can go wrong. So, even in the future, most planetary landers, if they're meant for atmosphere-bearing worlds, will either be capsule-shaped or be very stubby rockets or elongated capsules. Particularly for martian SSTO shuttles.

      Dude capsules are only for shortterm missions. thats simply why why cant be the best since it will expire in some decades... they are not material efficient over long time. its only good for nasa because they have to do edge-of-technology-missions which will always be single or limited numbers. this is the only useful part in space for them.


    • Sarge Rho
      Sarge Rho 1 год назад

      +Fick Dich No, I'm still right. Capsules make the best possible manned spacecraft. They're simple, reliable and automatically orient themselves correctly during reentry. And currently, manned spacecraft don't need to do much more than that and being able to dock to where they're ferrying people.

      And wouldn't you know, most atmospheric landers and lander designs are also either capsule-shaped or have a capsule-shaped aeroshell.


    • Fick Dich
      Fick Dich 1 год назад

      +Sarge Rho wrong. its the cheapest way for a short mission. if for example we will EVER start to colonize space, moons or planets, it wont be anymore capsules. it will be spaceships with shuttles. Those shuttles might be some kind of capules since there is no atmosphere on some planets to make aerodynamics useful.

    Does the delta IV heavy transfer fuel on the fly from the two liquid rocket boosters to the center engine?

    • Simon Y
      Simon Y 2 года назад

      No. It just throttles down the centre booster until the outer ones separate. The Falcon Heavy rocket will transfer propellent though.

      Delta IV H could only throw Orion into medium orbit. Falcon Heavy will be powerful enough to send it around the moon like Apollo 8.

      +Simon Y The SRB's on the SLS aren't going to be recovered like they were with shuttle launches?


    • Simon Y
      Simon Y 2 года назад

      +Russell S There's no way. Constellation was a bloated mess, taking up huge amounts of NASAs budget while still remaining chronically underfunded. It's ludicrous to believe that $3.4 billion would cover the cost of the development of the Ares I, including an all new second stage complete with a revamped J-2X engine, and pay for a total of 20 flights to the ISS carrying cargo, plus another 4 test flights, plus the development of a cargo capsule. 

      And to call the SRBs on Ares reusable is pretty inaccurate. Maybe refurbishable, but at a very high cost. There's a reason SLS doesn't have reusable boosters.
