    Can someone answer me please? This rocket looks to me that it can land humans to moon already. Why still waiting for the SLS or other private programmes?

      Thomas Kundera 5 дней назад

      It's far from being big enough.
      The heaviest version of a Delta IV is bellow 800T, whereas Saturn V or the SLS are near 3000T.
      More than a factor 3 in take off mass.

    Why not use the falcon

    • Nolan Burke
      Nolan Burke 9 дней назад

      The Falcon 9 with the most payload capability at the time of this launch was v1.1, which could carry only 13,000kg to Low Earth Orbit. Orion weighs in at 25,000kg, meaning that it could not make orbit with v1.1. Additionally, Orion was to be tested at a higher reentry velocity (to simulate a return from the moon), which required a higher orbit and more fuel. Falcon did simply not have enough payload capability at the time, and still doesn't now (at least for this mission, F9 Full Thrust can do 22,000kg to LEO)

    So did they alter the design to use SRB's or is that a different system I've been seeing?

    • Steven Littleton
      Steven Littleton 9 дней назад

      Nolan Burke yes... Everything you said is obvious. What I'm asking is did they replace these liquid fueled side rockets with the SRB's (or maybe vice versa) because I've seen what I thought was all the same vehicle (possibly different generations) with SRB's & in this triple liquid fueled configuration. Or, are they two completely different vehicles from the same family of rockets. Thanks.

    • Nolan Burke
      Nolan Burke 9 дней назад

      These boosters are essentially two other rockets without the payload or second stage that have been strapped to the side of a fully-built rocket. They aren't the typical SRBs that fly on the other Delta vehicles, they run on the same propellants and have the same engine as the center stage. It's sort of like Falcon Heavy but with the Delta rocket, per se.

    I applaud their achievement, but 50 years ago, we had a "heavy" rocket too. There were 5 main engines at 160,000,000 Horsepower each. Takeoff weight was 3,250 tons. It went from zero MPH to mach 6 in 3 1/2 minutes. Payload was 261,000 Lbs. We built 13 of them, then shut it down, destroyed all the parts and patterns. And sat under a tree looking up at the stars, wondering why did we bother.

      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.

      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.

      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

      +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.

      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 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.

    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 :

    • Russell S
      Russell S Год назад +5

      +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).
