Falcon Heavy & Starman

Share

  • Published on Mar 11, 2018
  • When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.
    Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.
    Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth.

    The part that hits me, was that one sentence which defines who we are. MADE ON EARTH BY HUMANS.
    If we could all be united into a single federation then we could have achieved so much more, instead of war, hate and communalism, we could have a global country and each one of us would be a global citizen. Hope someday it will become a reality

But holy shit I don’t think it’s important. We live on a beautiful planet. We are capable of some truly amazing things when we work together. When we can unite behind a great cause.

    The CCCP launch the first probe in Earth's orbit, in 1961 Yuri Gagarin was the first human in Earth's orbit. United States launch the apollo eleven and Neil Armstrong was the first human in the moon's surface in 1969. the Salyout one and Skylab were the first space stations while viking one and venera nine the first probes in other planets. The Voyagers were the first probes in the gaseous planets, the MIR o the ISS is examples of the collaboration international breaking all fronties. The Pathfinder, Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity the rovers in mars, Cassini the first probe in saturn, Galileo and Juno are the missions in Jupiter, Hyugens the first lander in Titan. New Horizons in pluto, the Parker in the sun, InSight in mars, OsirisREX, STS and more. But now is the best time for live, the Falcon Heavy isn't only a show, is hope, is the most oportunity of SpaceX, and it was a success. Congratulations SpaceX, are the hope of the mankind.

    Welcome to the 1960s. Get over it and stop crying like a girl. We launched much bigger rocket back then and went to the moon many times. - and we sent an actual working car - and drove it on the moon. In fact, it is still there today and still works. Oh, we did it within 9 years too. You generation will take 30 years to do the same thing. And all the yapping about landing a rocket standing up - that was done by NASA in 1965. How do you think we landing on the moon? Not only did we land standing up, but we took off again in the same rocket without any assistance or repairs. Nothing new at SpaceX. Same old stuff but done slower and more expensively and smaller.

    • Coleen West

      +VitalFir 46 Repulsive landing was done by NASA years ago and studied at length. I am not aware of them specifically landing on a barge, but that idea was considered and rejected as a waste of resources - yes you can use up lifting weight by assigning that weight to repulsive landing mechanism or you can decide to use that capacity for the primary purpose of launching to space. Remember this, NASA did not have to worry about "limited" resources in the way that Spacex might - NASA basically had unlimited funding. They chose not to do repulsive earth landings of one stage as it simply wasted funds. I have yet to see any accounting from SpaceX that shows this to be financially viable. Yes, Elon says it is, but he also asserts that electric cars make financial sense while losing $35,000.00 on every car made. I will grant you this. I am very glad that SpaceX exists and I have got to show respect for what is being done. Just not too sure it is all that new.

      I can see you made some errors in your reply.
      1) The engines: Do some research, the merlin and kestrel engines were designed AND built by SpaceX in 2006 along with the Falcon 1 rocket.(which had no correlation with NASA, at this time SpaceX recieved no money, contracts, or help from them. At this time SpaceX was privately funded by Elon Musk spending his own money.) Only after the Falcon 1 successfully orbited the Earth and SpaceX submitted its plans to deliver cargo to the ISS did NASA finally give SpaceX the $1.6 billion that kept them alive and allow them to build the Falcon 9.(which SpaceX designed too by the way, because if they didn't show NASA that they actually had plans on how to complete the contract, how would they expect SpaceX to complete the cargo missions?).
      2)The fuel: Yeah there's nothing special about the fuel SpaceX uses. It's the same fuel that alot of other rockets use, such as the Saturn V.
      3) The landings: Again like I said, the ideas of landing rockets is not new. I'm not saying it is, but please do tell me when NASA or any other company landed an orbital class first stage booster on a barge in the middle of the ocean. Did you even look at the link I provided?
      4).The Saturn V: There are rockets more powerful (in thrust) and more reliable than the Saturn V. Russia holds two of those titles. The russian Soyuz of rockets are the considered the world's safest rockets ever developed and launched. The Russian N-1 rocket was more powerful than the Saturn V in terms of thrust, but the saturn v could carry more in terms of cargo to LEO. And also yes, SpaceX is able to produce rockets as big and powerful than the Saturn V. Just because they haven't, doesn't mean they can't. I'm just going to assume you don't know about the BFR/Starship that Spacex is planning on developing

    • Coleen West
      Coleen West 15 hours ago

      +VitalFir 46 There is nothing - absolutely nothing - that Spacex does that wasn't posted by NASA and paid for and discovered or invented by NASA decades ago. Not the rocket engines. Not the landings. Not the fuel. Nothing new here. In fact, not only does Spacex not bring anything "new" to the table, they aren't even able to remake something as powerful or big or reliable as the Saturn V. To this day no rocket has ever been made that is more powerful than the Saturn V.

      +Coleen West
      Yeah it made sense to do it, because it's the only way to do it. You can't land on the moon like an airplane obviously. NASA did achieve vertical landings before SpaceX, I'm not claiming they didn't, but you just seem to make it feel as if landing an orbital class first stage booster on a small landing pad in the middle of the ocean isn't impressive just because something happened in the 60s. And yes, NASA did fund SpaceX but only after they had already started launching their own rockets. NASA hired them to deliver cargo to the ISS and to do that SpaceX needed a bigger rocket, so NASA paid them to build the Falcon 9 and Dragon spacecraft. Thats all they were hired to do but SpaceX with their own money and engineering redesigned the falcon 9 to do powered landings, adding landing gear and creating a way to pack more fuel into a smaller space by freezing it. The "how to" has been known for a while yes, NASA did persue it during the shuttle era but they all lead to being cancelled. Leaving Blue origin and SpaceX as the only companies currently doing this right now. curious-droid.com/1107/vertical-landing-rockets-before-spacex/

    • Coleen West
      Coleen West Day ago

      +VitalFir 46 ...it doesn't matter. If it made sense to sacrifice capacity for landing one stage of a rocket vertically, NASA would do it. In fact, they did - twice. They did it in the 60s and they did it with Spacex. NASA not only supplied the money to do it they supplied the engineering talent and expertise. The "how to" is made public by NASA long ago. Whatever. Not a big deal. Old ideas and technology.

    Usually when someone make a video to celebrate a personal success they only include what they did right, trying to forget about mistakes or things that didn't go to plan.
    I love the fact that in this video we get to see the rocket landing in the water and that they openly talk about it.
    Good job to everyone involved from someone who understands absolutely nothing about rocket science, and thank you for giving yur best to carry us all in the next Space Age.

    The people of 1903 witnessed the first airplane flight in history. It was thought to be impossible, but we did it. The people of 1903 had no clue that only 66 years later-within a human lifespan-would we walk on the surface of the moon. Although space travel has been somewhat dormant for almost the same amount of time that it took us to get from the skies to the heavens, Elon Musk is changing that for good. We’re opening our eyes again and we’re keeping them open. Today, with the rapid growth of science, technology, and knowledge, imagine where we’ll be in 66 years. Imagine the life our children and grandchildren will wake up to.
    Godspeed, Elon. Godspeed.

    Why the first terrorist attack in space?

    Due to the development of affordable satellite Internet offered by Ilon Mask in its Starlink project, 12,000 satellites will launch into the near-Earth orbit, which will cover the planet with affordable high-speed Internet.
    This will be a financial shock for mobile telecommunication companies, etc., with their second business plans (5G, 6G, etc.). Because people will start to throw out mobile numbers and communicate directly through the available satellite Internet. There is a great danger of the first on the planet of a terrorist act that will be committed in space.
