Falcon Heavy & Starman

  • Publicado el 11 mar 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.

    A clear choice for a David Bowie song. And you choose "Life on Mars" instead of "Starman". Not complaining, it's a good song, but I feel tro-

    "she could spit in the eyes of fools" love the subtly of that statement. throwing shade at everyone whose ever doubted SpaceX and now the power that is Falcon Heavy. What a lovely time to be a live, the future is bright. Can't wait to see BFR make her maiden voyage.
    seeing those kids excited, I rember being that little, the wonderment, the excitement. I remember when Obama announced we had to cut back on NASA, that was like the last but of my childhood dying. But seeing something like this, a man like Musk pushing the boundaries and reinventing the wheel basically, that's everything. the kid in me is very much alive today.

      If you researched the old space launch. It's pretty much The issue of Lockheed Martin and Boeing selling overpricing parts to NASA. The government doesn't allow NASA to build parts internally. It's good that NASA is support SpaceX.

    this is very cool. Plus things like bringing down the cost of rocket use is huge. But with plans to increase the amount of rockets being used...add in more rocket companies are being made, and the current major companies plan on increasing their amount of rockets used, by...well by a seriously significant amount. And they still run on propellent, which is damaging to the environment, and its emitted throughout every level of the atmosphere as the rocket makes its trip to outer space...so there are some harmful pollutants emitted directly into places like the stratosphere, where they can near immediately begin destruction of the ozone layer...and with rocket launch increase, listening to Space Xs plans alone to increase rocket use its a lot...Rocket use will speed things up in terms of travel, but accelerate things like global warming and harmful climate change...So unless there are major changes in power generation and use, such as making more large solar panel arrays, use much less fossil fuel power, then harmful emissions are going to accelerate. this will lead to an accelerated destruction of ecosystems, and other important things. I mean Im all for technological increases, and colonizing other planets, but not if they accelerate the destruction of a planet...and using poop for food like some space entity tried...that's just gross...surely advancements can happen without humans having to resort to eating their own poop. I mean make a condensed nutrient pill in times where food stores run low, so space can be saved on less room needed for a certain amount of calories and meals...poop food is not cool.

    I hate to be a downer, but It seems if this really does become mainstream, it would get really old hearing at least 6 sonic booms several times a day during booster reentry and landing. Especially for the 45 min. NYC to Shanghai flights, etc. Even if its several km offshore, and especially with the bigger BFR booster yet to come.

    I've watched well over 30 STS missions live, including the final shuttle mission, and this is the only time I've genuinely cried happy tears during any rocket launch. I held it together up Bowie started playing in the stream, and then I lost it. I remember pulling over on the side of the highway to watch on my phone. I can imagine driving down the highway, seeing a grown man crying in his car, watching a video on his phone. Not my proudest moment for myself, but by far my proudest moment for humanity.
