Echostar 105 / SES-11 Launch Webcast

  • Published on 11 months ago

    SpaceXSpaceX

    Runtime: 51:16

    SpaceX is targeting launch of EchoStar 105/SES-11 from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The two-hour launch window opens on Wednesday, October 11 at 6:53 p.m. EDT, or 22:53 UTC. A two-hour backup launch window opens on Thursday, October 12 at 6:53 p.m. EDT, or 22:53 UTC. The satellite will be deployed approximately 36 minutes after liftoff.

    Falcon 9’s first stage for the EchoStar 105/SES-11 mission previously supported SpaceX’s 10th resupply mission to the International Space Station (CRS-10) in February of this year. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will attempt a landing on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

It would be nice if they could put stage 1 and stage 2 telemetry on the screen. Stage 1 on the left, stage 2 on the right and the T+ clock in the middle. Just so we could see telemetry for both stages..

Panie Musk jestem pełen podziwu dla Pana dokonań, jednak jest to technologia z 20 wieku. Na Pana miejscu zrobiłbym eksperymenty z nową technologią. Statki kosmiczne które działają bez ognia, wybuchów, a bez problemu, bez przeciążeń lecą na wszystkie planety naszego układu słonecznego. Samochody owszem elektryczne lecz nie potrzebują autostrad bo latają. Ta technologia już jest. Pozdrawiam Krzysztof z Polski.

That was a ridiculously intense re-entry - the plasma shockwave seen! Holy shit. Was this the fastest re-entry so far? The re-entry burn started at around 8.4km/s :o and only reduced it's speed to around 6.5km/s! Looks like some of the engines' nozzles got eaten by plasma. There were quite a few sparks being swept into the shockwave. "Engine-rich combustion" haha ;)

Thanks for a very interesting and informative video. I am curious.. After the satellite has been released, what do you do with the part of the rocket, carrying the satellite? Do you fly it back into the earth' atmosphere, so it burns up and falls into the ocean or that happens with it? If that is the case, how much is left when it hits the water. Are we talking parts of a few centimeters or more? Keep up the good work. I love what you are doing to the world.

***NEED AN ANSWER: *** so when the stage 2 rocket is activated the traveling speed starts to go up quickly as there is few friction in the atmosphere at 300km altitude. At minute 42:02 immediately the speed stops to 35'262 km/h and then starts going back. How this? An object launched at so high speed how can instantly stop?????!!! Shouldn't have a continuos movement as there is no friction!? Thanks to all for answer

Nicoltaly That is not a matter of altitude, but of speed. An object going about 25,000 miles per hour will not be pulled back by Earth's gravity but will be able to go to other places, such as the Moon or Mars.

11 months ago
Jim Murphy
Jim Murphy

It holds the moon in orbit around the earth. A factor most people don't consider is that at surface of the earth we are already 4,000 miles from the center, and going a few hundred miles farther from the center into low earth orbit is a very small percentage change. At the distance of the moon, which is roughly 60 times farther from the center of the Earth than a person standing on the surface, the pull of the Earth is 3600 times weaker. No human has been farther from Earth than the Moon, and at that distance the Earth's gravity still was present, though weak. For most (not all) rockets we launch the Earth's gravity is still the dominant force they feel. Even at their farthest point from Earth they are held in orbit around the Earth. Only a very, very few rockets get far enough from the Earth and or close enough to some other body (our moon, or another planet) that the Earth's gravity is weak enough to ignore.

That's a slightly pedantic reply though. Gravity falls off pretty fast. There is a point where, technically earth's gravity is still pulling on you, but it is so weak it is functionally meaningless.

NicoItaly there is no such distance. The gravity of every object in the universe extends for an infinite distance. The farther away you are the weaker it is but it never just stops. Look up "inverse square law" for the details.

I recommend you see the video evidence regarding bubbles on spacewalks for yourself, there are videos aplenty. I'll warn you again, the fringe elements of the YouTube "science" community seem to be the only ones putting up the footage, and unfortunately that's where you'll have to look to see it. If the imaginary wooden rod was to be tugged and only move at the speed of sound, that would imply the rod would have to do one of one things: 1) Grow longer to accommodate the distance one end has traveled while the opposite end remains stationary, waiting for sound to catch up. The idea that the state-change would propagate at the speed of sound doesn't add up, and let's shrink the experiment to see why: A 1/4" diameter steel rod 340 meters in length lays on the ground. At one end is welded a vertical handle of like material, and your hand is on it. At the other end the rod is fitted into a device that, once the rod is pulled from it, will fire a starter's pistol. Holding a stopwatch, you yank back on the rod and activate the timer at the same time. *Do you hear the sound of the starter's pistol in 1 second, or 2?* The speed of sound should be approximately 340m/s on a cool day with no humidity (wiki). The rod is now made of steel because it would actually be easier to find a 340 meter rod of steel than solid wood. tl;dr unsatisfactory answer I checked my work to make sure I was clear enough, I rekkon I was. I asked if the clocks, which were synced, would show a different time upon the spaceship's return. Applying relativity but removing 1 of the observers would allow the theory to stand, as the dilating effect would (should [never will]) be observed. Were there two observers, both would be watching events unfold from their own *relative* perspectives, from their own *relative* positions in space. The person on the spaceship would see the Earth shoot away from him and return, meaning the clock on Earth must, *as demanded by the theory,* show a slower time than his. The same applies for the observers on Earth, the returning spacefarer's clock absolutely must show a slower time than their own, as he was the moving away from and returning to their relative, stationary position in space. Both cannot be the case. Time is not a function of the physical universe; it's a glorified abstraction.

Ok, so about the pools: NASA uses pools to train for neutral buoyancy and for spacewalks. There isn't really a way (that I have seen) to be true or false, because most "bubbles" people claim to be in the videos appear to be the moon. The wooden rod: Neither of those would happen, since pushing or pulling something essentially causes seismic waves that move at the speed of sound. So if you were to tug on it, it would move at the speed of sound, not light or instantaneously. According to relativity, time passes slower to anything moving relative to you, so, according to the people on the ground, the clock on the spaceship will be slower while it is accelerating, and vice versa for the spaceship

I won't claim to know what lights in the sky are (save for planes, helis, ballons, etc) or how they're made, as I don't work for NASA/ESA/ETC and obviously don't know. But giant pieces of flimsy, delicate computer components miraculously existing in a state of constant free fall around a planet moving in excess of sixty thousand miles and hour (not including its alleged speed through the galaxy, and, further, the universe itself) that really only serve to "prove" the biggest sham of the 20th Century, relativistic motion? The argument doesn't need refuting if you have more than a handful of brain cells to rub together, friend. Also, your post presupposes the existence of the ISS in its alleged form instead of attempting to prove it, so the argument doesn't exist, hence the insult. All you can really claim is you see something odd shaped when you look up. =P Homework time: First, click on that blank bar up above with the word Search in it, and type in something along the lines of "NASA bubbles CGI ISS" and have a gander at the giant pool NASA films their spacewalks in. If you see the words Flat or Earth in the title, you've gone too far. Next, suppose you held the end of a solid wooden pole on the surface of the Earth that stretched across to the surface of Mars, it's end being held by someone else. They claim light takes just over three minutes to reach Mars from Earth, and nothing moves faster than light. If you tugged on the pole, would the other person feel it immediately, or 3 minutes later? (please try not answering with "would collapse under its own weight" or some variation, because that isn't an answer) Next, suppose you put a person on a spaceship with a clock, and he takes off from a spaceport wherein sits an intern with his own clock. Both clocks are synced. The spaceship launches and travels 6 hours away from Earth, and 6 hours back.They claim that, due to relativistic mumbo jumbo, flying away from Earth and returning would magically allow you to somehow have experienced less time than those remaining on Earth. Thanks to relativity's own machinations, though, from the perspective of the person on the spaceship he would've seen the Earth race away from his relative position before coming back to him, himself not really having moved at all (remember— relativity). Will the clocks show a different time?
