Falcon Heavy Test Flight

  • Published on Feb 6, 2018
  • Following its first test launch, Falcon Heavy is now 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. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9.
    Its first stage is composed of three Falcon 9 nine-engine cores whose 27 Merlin engines together generate more than 5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff, equal to approximately eighteen 747 aircraft. Only the Saturn V moon rocket, last flown in 1973, delivered more payload to orbit. Falcon Heavy was designed from the outset to carry humans into space and restores the possibility of flying missions with crew to the Moon or Mars.

    I was there. It was well worth making the trip, and even worth sitting in the traffic jam heading home afterward.

    This will probably be the biggest flex in history ever. He starts from a not so rich family, founds a car company people say will fail, makes a rocket company several years after Jeff Bezos makes one, gets told he will fail, send a car from one company using the other company into space

    Take three hours to use a balloon system and cut 90% off your rocket needs. For what they used here on one launch could have been four launches with balloon systems.

    I'm glad the U.S. Congress has allowed the FAA to retain jurisdiction over the airspace over the U.S. territories. I'm happy that Congress has retained the regulation of the airspace over the U.S.A to have been left in control of the FAA and not some other "military power". In other words, the FAA still has complete jurisdiction of the airspace over and above the U.S territories up to and including airspace up to 60,000ft. After that, the FAA no longer has "control" of airspace of any aircraft over 60K.
    But what about the U.S. military? They are still subjugated to the FAA. Yes, they are. But Since the FAA has no control over airspace over 60K, what authority does NORAD have. If suddenly an invasion of rockets should suddenly come over the North Pole from Russian in a full blown out Nuclear attack, how has jurisdiction? Russian Nukes can fly into outer space and fly over the north pole and MIRV their warheads into U.S. Airspace.
    Come on guys, we had1970's computer machines in all our bars which played space war games with MIRV. The computer game required us to shoot down as many MIRV's as possible until they hit our soil. It was a "sick" game, but it was a game we all played when computer games first appeared in bars back during the "gas fuel crisis" during the 1974 fuel crisis.

    So, therefore, back in the day it was considered "fun" to play "world destruction". Because that's what it was. We really believed we could go to war at any moment.
    But today, even to discuss this time in history will make any person who remembers it, a "potential" violent person. My God, all you young kids, just ask your parents who went to college back in the 1970s to tell you about gas lines and also what it was like to play computer games where MIRV missiles were attacking the U.S. I can't remember the name of the game but it may have been called by a name where MIRV missiles had to have been shot down by our ground lasers or missiles. I can't remember the name of the computer game, but all of the seaside game stations had it available.

    Landing on Mars, what for, there is nothing there compared with our beautiful Earth, so I find it strange that people want to travel to a distant planet, it will take a month to get there, if you hadn't already collided with a meteorite or rock puncturing the spacecraft, and when and if you do land without crashing you might even have a vehicle to travel around in, but you won't find a pull over to have a meal and a beer and enjoy a view because there are no trees, vegetation or animals just a baron landscape with a harsh environment, a few weeks of that and you'll be bored out of your skull and wondered why you went, btw Elon said you can't return because the engine broke, needs a spare part.
    If you had that much money to book a one way ticket to Mars you have either lost it, bored with life and planning to end it, braindead, ugly as sin or an obstinate Flat Earther that couldn't face the fact that we do live on a globe.

      they said payload, payload is another word for cargo, it can be used to describe how many bombs a war plane can hold, or how much weight a rocket can launch into space, in this case the payload is the car since its the cargo being moved.
