Falcon Heavy Test Flight

  • Published on 5 months ago

    SpaceXSpaceX

    Runtime: 34:19

    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.

When he said "Falcon Heavy, go for launch" it sounded like he said "Fuckin' Heavy, go for launch" And I would have been completely okay with that

Why are you broadcasting people screaming when you are inside.. And who exactly is screaming.? This is what i don't understand,, why are you constantly sending crap to mars,, you have barly scratched the moon... Just seems very odd...

Thijs Snijder .. Sorry but my comment remains in tack.. And yes i seen all those people cheering,, not... It seemed like those shows where it says applause,, but without people actually doing the applauding.. I only heard it and didn't see anyone... But yea putting that car in the video was a stroke of genius,, added to the realism..

Those people are the engineers who have worked on the falcon heavy, they have every right to be excited. as for the car, it isn't going to mars, it is in a heliocentric orbit with its furthest point beyond mars. whereisroadster.com

OK------- Fantastic! Good. i have an idea for a new more efficient Engine that would enable the Falcon 9 to lift what the Falcon Heave can. --- That is the Accelerated Flow Combustion engine that does away with the restrictive Combustion Chamber entirely, increasing the Specific Impulse above the chemical 360-SPI (11,000 ft/sec exhaust velocity) it has now. The new engine increases the SPI by using the Fuel pumps to accelerate the fuel and Oxygen to some 7,000 feet/second, before the fuel is ignited with Fuel's fixed never to exceed Chemical expansion velocity. If the fuel and oxidizer is already above the speed of sound before it is ignited, it does not need a restriction throat for combustion.The Accelerated Flow combustion engine could easily beat Hydrogen fuel. Hell, it could get up to a SPI of some 1,000+ (Single Stage to Orbit relm) in just a few years as new materials allow the pumps to increase the pressure pushing the liquid fuel/oxy mix out the specially designed Nozzle and down a carefully designed long combustion tube as it burns before entering the expansion bell.---------------- But that means someone is going to have to prove the new engine design actually works as it is a Wildly Eccentric propulsal and could not be built before this without modern technology. I hope it is Space-X. It would not take much to rebuild one of your Falcon's Merlin engines to this configuration. --- The Raptor engine using this tech would enable the BFR booster to be half the size it's design is now using the metals we now have.

In my 65 years I've been fortunate enough to have seen everything from the Mercury program to Gemini to Apollo to the Shuttles to the ISS. I was greatly disappointed at the end of the shuttle program and knowing that we were having to pay out $70 million a shot to have the Russians get our astronauts up to the ISS and back. With all the turmoil today in this country I am very, very proud of all you SpaceX people and the great work you are performing to get us back into space on our own. You have given me hope again for the future. Thank-you all so very much and good luck. Keep shooting for those stars!
