    Is it normal for the flame to travel back up the rocket at ignition? Thats scary

    Retro rocketry. Most of the ULA employees must be worried about keeping their jobs as their rocket is so old fashioned.

    So when are you guys going to grow some balls and design a reusable rocket? Instead of buying overpriced Russian engines and pursuing the minimum amount of innovation.

    • tesla guy

      It's the goddamn NASA budget, yunno. Budget = restrictions. Want a proper rocket? Look at 'em private companies.

    • Joshua Cooper
      Joshua Cooper 9 months ago +3

      Benjamin Wood Yeah average military launch cost for ULA is ~$400 million vs SpaceX with ~$80 million dollars.

    • Benjamin Wood
      Benjamin Wood 9 months ago +3

      Scarce It would be much cheaper to invest the money into R&D. It's not like their launches are cheap in the first place. Even a brand new none reusable falcon 9 is still cheaper than anything ULA has to offer. They will quickly be left in the dust if they don't improve in a major way soon.

    • Scarce
      Scarce 9 months ago

      It's probably cheaper that they keep using new new ones instead of investing research into making a reusable one that might not even work the 2nd time, or efficiently in general.
      The heat in the rocket is so high that they use a special plating for the rocket so that it doesn't catch on fire for example and anything inside stays safe.

    Oh look more CGI BS 😂😂😂 Why not show the actual rocket going through space? Why conclude the coverage?? Why not show the most exciting parts of the mission? One answer. Fake! And people wonder why some people don't believe in this stuff is because of continuous videos like this showing CGI footage instead of real congruent footage showing rockets going to space. Wake up people they're not doing anything!

      +Juan Ayala try some of SpaceX's videos. This mission (and a few SpaceX ones) doesn't feature coverage of the space portion because it's a top secret National Recconassiance Office mission. Most will.

      Biff Dingus Meanwhile SpaceX is developing the cheapest and most advanced rocket systems of the 21st century. ULA is just 2 greedy military industrial contractors trying to suck funds out of the government to fund more pointless projects. Just look at Lockheed Martin and the F35. The project was a failure. Now SLS will likely be a failure as well. Due to SpaceX developing far superior rockets.

    • SFRJ Patriota
      SFRJ Patriota 9 months ago +1

      SpaceX > ULA. Seriously, ULA is building a rocket which by the time BFR is finished will be inferior in almost every way. Even when ULA updates SLS to carry more cargo it still wont be as much, and as cheap as BFR. BFR will only cost around 70-100 million per launch compared to ULA's 180 million figure. NASA is wasting its time on SLS. They should instead look toward shifting funds from ULA to SpaceX.

    • Ruben
      Ruben 9 months ago +1

      What's your point? Of course SpaceX would seem more presentable: they have more funding and experience in this. I believe we should be encouraging more companies in doing this for more competition :)

    • Wouter H.
      Wouter H. 9 months ago +8

      Actually it went perfectly on Spacex's side. The Falcon 9 got the satellite got in to orbit, but the payload adapter made by NORTHROP GRUMMAN (the satellite builder!) failed to separate the satellite from the second stage. Not the fault of SpaceX.

      It's actually complete speculation. There has been absolutely no evidence to suggest that it didn't make it to orbit.
      Most likely that they spread the rumor to make it so that nobody would be looking for it.
