Launch of Orion EFT-1 on Delta IV Heavy, The First Step to Mars

  • Опубликовано: 5 дек 2014
  • LAUNCH REPLAYS:видео.html
    A Delta IV Heavy rocket thundered into orbit today from Space Launch Complex 37B carrying the very first Orion Spacecraft into orbit. This mission, labelled Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1) is unmanned and will test Orion's onboard systems and heat shield for a re-entry from lunar missions.
    Liftoff occurred at 12:05 UTC, December 5th 2014, Orion will separate from the second stage at around 3 hours into flight before re-entering Earth's atmosphere and splashing down in the Pacific Ocean.
    Launch was delayed from December 4th due to ground winds, and then problems with fill and drain valves on the Delta IV rocket.

    I remember in 2014 when this happened every space enthusiast supported NASA and the Orion program
    Now the comments are filled with over hyped Space X fanboys that think NASA's next Apollo program is the worst thing ever happened just because of HYPE
    If only people were less ignorant of the great job the folks at NASA are doing and will do with Orion in the future

      Shourya Bose SpaceX hasn't shown that interplanetary travel is cheaper yet. The BFR hasn't flown yet, it's still just a plan. What they have shown is that unmanned LEO flights can be done more cheaply.

    • Shourya Bose

      Spacynerd 42123 We were led to believe that the delays and cost overruns of NASA programs were a 'given' for space travel because of safety considerations and other things.
      SpaceX demonstrated that this is not the case, and the delays and cost bloating are political moves to appease certain senators.
      Even if you support NASA's approach to space travel, you have to acknowledge the aforementioned. That's what most SpaceX fans want to say. Nobody hates NASA in the sense of people's hatred of, say oil companies, which use underhanded techniques to maintain their monopoly. Even Elon has mentioned time and again that he's indebted to NASA.

      Shourya Bose Space X's promises are surely a good thing but Orion is still as exciting of a thing as ever
      I support both unlike many trolls on the internet that think space X is so revolutionary that anything human spaceflight related thing NASA is doing or plans to do is somehow obsolete
      Thing is they are not its just that SpaceX's promises are just insanely huge
      Instead of hating I support both sides as much

    • Shourya Bose

      Spacynerd 42123 People were hyped with Orion because it was the only way to go interplanetary in 2014.
      But now SpaceX has shown that going interplanetary can be done better, faster and cheaper so more people are supporting them.
      Of course these are nuances that a person with a pepe profile picture won't understand.

    Well. Looks rather obsolete now (from todays point of view) after the succesfull Falcon Heavy launch (and landing). Surely NOT the first step to mars. SLS will fly once or twice and then they will cancel the program because of costs. Future lies in reusable rockets. Same for the european ariane 6, so no NASA bashing.
    I bet the first vessel with humans landing on mars will be BFR (or its successor).

      Atheists decide not to kill others because it's common sense. You don't just go next door and stab them in the face. Also, I actually did go to a christian school, so I'm not falling for any lies, I'm following my own thoughts, and all I say is that I think that atheism makes more sense.

      It is wrong to kill and it even says it in your bible. So your god would be a hypocrite. What light was there, then without the sun, moon and stars? If I saw god legitimately in an un-photoshopped, non CGI image, I'd believe it. If I got proper proof, not just the bible, because anyone could've wrote it. It could've been some guy pretending to be someone. And with Jesus? Do you know how many people were falsely buried back then? Plus, what's stopping Mary from lying to Joseph about getting pregnant? Women and men were killed back then for cheating. She could've just been scared to tell her husband because maybe she didn't want execution.

      On orbit assembly is very much a thing, it's not a magic bullet however. First launch costs, scales linearly with how many launches you need. Secondly, launch cadence, how fast can you pull off the required number of launches, these things can take months to get ready for next launch. And then there is added complexity, mass and cost of on orbit assembly. Nothing impossible in any of these things obviously, but engineering is all about compromises, if you can launch something in one go, it's almost certain to be a better compromise than multiple launches.

    • Thomas Kundera
      Thomas Kundera 4 месяца назад

      A way to use that rocket to go to deep space could be in several launch: sending and assembling a lunar (or other destination) spacecraft in low Earth orbit, with something like 3 to 4 launch could be enough.
      But it may be more expensive and complex than waiting for the next SLS or Falcon generation.

    • aleksander suur
      aleksander suur 4 месяца назад +1

      It can not land humans on Moon, way too small. Even the first iteration of SLS isn't quite enough.
      As for difference between this and falcon heavy, falcon heavy has double the performance for third the cost.

    • Nolan Burke
      Nolan Burke 5 месяцев назад +1

      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)

  • M. S. L.

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

    • M. S. L.
      M. S. L. 5 месяцев 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 5 месяцев 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.

      Actually using too many engines is more likely to cause a failure. That's why the Soviets never made it to the moon in their N-1. If even one of those dozens of engines exploded, the rest of the rocket would go with it, which it did four times before the N-1 was scrapped.

    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...

      Tomáš Neumajer The Space Shuttle or STS was a disaster, responsible for 14 deaths, more than all other launch vehicles combined. It was many times as expensive as other launch vehicles of the same capability, and its limited LEO capability vs Orion's versatility is one of the reasons we haven't been to Mars yet. This is definitely not a step back.

      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.

    • grog3514
      grog3514 Месяц назад

      Falcon Heavy exists and flys. SLS hasn't been built yet. If you want to compare non existent rockets that will come out around the same time you will need to compare it to BFR. Even the final state of SLS pales in comparison yet blows it out of the water in terms of cost. You can start talking about SLS once it actually starts flying ... probably way into the 2020's if its history teaches us anything about them hitting their milestones.
      The best case scenario is congress pouring many more billions into the program and having it actually get built and be operational on time (which won't happen I promise you). In that unlikely case, they get a manned orion capsule to the moon a couple years earlier than BFR. Ok great ... why? Are those couple of years worth billions of our dollars? Hell no!
      The Saturn V was doing two important things when it was being developed. It was a crucial victory in the cold war and it was doing something that had never been done before in history. SLS is a political spending project and should be shut down.

    • Spacynerd 42123
      Spacynerd 42123 Месяц назад

      grog3514 Falcon heavy is a very powerful rocker but it's capability is just not as much as even SLS block 1
      SLS can launch the entire Orion spacecraft to TLI with plenty of room to spare but the FH even if expended falls 7 or 8 tones short of that
      And FH will almost never be used in its full capabilty to even come close to that
      And before you start talking about cost let me remind you that Saturn V was almost 2 times more expensive than SLS but it certainly wasn't a waste of money
      By my opinion SLS is not too expensive for it's size
      It's just that compaired to spaceX rockets the cost difference is significant even though these rockets cannot even match Block 1
      We can talk about BFR when and if it actually starts flying probably way into the 2020's
      Up until then I think the hate is not justified

    • grog3514
      grog3514 Месяц назад

      SLS block 1 will be able to lift almost exactly the same as the falcon heavy does now only the SLS will cost about 8 times as much (and many times more than that in development costs). The block 1B will be able to lift about 20 tons more than the falcon heavy but by the time that is ready, BFR will be as well.
      The hate is needed because they are literally burning my tax dollars. They are stealing my money and giving it to bureaucrats to dump on the bloated spending project that is the SLS instead of using the falcon heavy which would save countless billions of our dollars. By the time block 2 is completed, they will have spent enough money to fly over 200 BFR missions to mars.
      And this is even assuming that NASA keeps things on schedule which if you have been paying attention has been repeatedly delayed with future launch dates being constantly pushed back.

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.

    What's up with the image at 1:08? The rocket doesn't look real, like it's just a 2D image. If it is real, how was this view captured?

      There are little snippets like this throughout the video, because they want to show you something that no camera is in position to see. You think they are faking it because they did that?

      It's not real but it sure would be cool if it were. I wish NASA had enough funding to send up an outside camera rocket along side every launch. Wouldn't that be some great video?

      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.

    Orion is an obscenity. It's purpose is not to transport people into space. It's purpose is to transport tens of billions of taxpayers dollars into the gaping maw of Lockheed Martin. There is nothing that Orion can do that Dragon V2 cannot do at a fraction of the cost. Both Soyuz & Shenzhou are markedly superior designs.

      True. I don't know why Nasa is still making Orion. SpaceX is an official partner of Nasa, they aren't enemies. Nasa should accept that someone else does it better.

      SpaceX is far superior when it comes to rockets themsleves. Of course NASA far more experienced, but SpaceX is definitely closer to Mars than any other company or agency.

      ahem, the n1 was way before we had the software we have today, a lot of engines today is childsplay.
      also, the reason the falcon heavy is too late is actually a very good thing. Its because the falcon 9 has been improving in power to a point where they kept on having to redesign the falcon heavy to deal with the increased acoustics.

    • Thomas Wijgerse

      falcon heavy is superior than any rocket operational today, and when sls gets its first launch, I bet spacex has its bfr up and running which is more powerful and at a fraction of the cost, also a lot of engine has changed from being a drawback to an advantage.
