    Delta IV Heavy cost $400 million (2017) per launch!, $350 million (2018) with 28,790 kg (63,470 lb) capacity.
    while SpaceX Falcon heavy doing it for 90 million per launch! 63,800 kg (140,700 lb) payload capacity

      Well obviously that makes D4H far superior. The exhaust gasses look prettier so it's a better rocket. You do know the difference between a hydrogen and kerosene engine, right?

      mo lo so you’d rather spend $400+ million to get a 60,000 lb payload in LEO or would you rather pay $90 million to get a 140,000 lb payload into LEO if you choose the delta IV heavy your just a fool plain and simple

    • Ryan Parmenter
      Ryan Parmenter 3 месяца назад

      I would say your logic is flawed my friend. On D4H, losing one out of three engines would likely mean total mission failure. The Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy are designed with multiple engines for redundancy. Falcon 9 is designed to survive multiple engine-out scenarios and still perform it's mission. Same with Falcon heavy. On another note, I'll take 27 American made, 21st century engines over three Russian made relics any day, and twice on Sundays.

    Such colossal waste of material. Fucking rockets are an insanely, archaic, outdated and outmoded technology, they really are.
    Also, why the hell, do they always, have to go to computer simulation at some point? They can't find some friggen, way to attach some type of video equipment to the rocket for all stages of the flight? They do all this but can't do that?
    Mind Blowing. Out.

      As I said Nico, the Concord, Passenger, Jet almost, got us there with far less the fuss or the cost. Your average Fighter Jet reaches altitudes close to space already, at a minuscule, fraction of the cost and waste it takes with these rockets. So what I'm saying is to keep this basic, design only remodel it slightly, to be able to go the rest of the way.
      It seems like your point is kind of mute, seeing as we have not even, tried this route yet. And I don't consider the Shuttle a good example of what I'm talking about, though I feel it was a step in the right direction.
      So I'm sorry, but I can't agree with your position.
      My Best. Out.

      rockets (especially SpaceX rockets) are the best way to go through space, space planes are slower, and if we want to to further than the upper atmosphere, rockets are the best way.

    • whitemannativemind

      A better way is to go the route Richard Branson has already begun. A better way would be to develop spacecraft similar to jetliners and have them go into space, return and repeat that many times over. Fighter jets already, have the capability to travel close to the envelope of space, and I was watching a documentary on the Concord Jet, only a few nights ago, that did the same thing, and at twice the speed of sound, if I remember correctly. Now in all honesty, is it really, all THAT, difficult to develop a spacecraft of a similar nature that will ACTUALLY, DO, what these type of craft ALMOST, do already?! Surely goodness not. I do not believe NASA is making the slightest attempt to go in this direction at all, or any other space agency that I'm aware of, and this is a type of technological retardation here, it honestly is.
      Now providing better ways to power such craft is a question I'm unable to answer, but I have no doubt that there are those out there, with the knowledge, who can.
      I love what Elon is trying to do, but I'm saddened that he's not farsighted enough to avoid using such outdated and outmoded technology, powered by such an archaic source of fuel. Though, I believe, developing better sources of propulsion is part of the work his company is doing, so I'll give him a pat on the back on the much anyway.
      My Best. Out.

    Bravo to Elon and his massive successes with minimum failures, and of course today, not only did the
    Falcon Heavy launch a Tesla Roadster, into sun orbit, amazingly- the twin boosters landed- side by side! Hopefully this put a "point finale' to the naysayers here favoring wasted effort and tax payers $$$s going to the 'military-industrial' pork-barrel so well represented by the lobbyists and ULA !
