Space x May 22 Launch Video

Whoa. SpaceX said the capsule went from 0 to 160 kilometers per hour in 1.2 seconds, which is an acceleration of four times Earth’s gravity. It reached a top speed of 550 kph, arcing nearly 1, 200 meters into the air. You can see the trunk jettisoned at 0:30 (in a real flight, this sits under the Dragon and contains unpressurized cargo and the capsule’s solar panels). At the time I wondered where the trunk landed after the test; from this it looks…

SpaceX Falcon Rocket Launch

Share This article Just under a month ago, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket exploded just over two minutes into takeoff. SpaceX responded by postponing its upcoming launches and digging into the cause of the problem. The issue, it seems, was a bad strut within the rocket itself. The Falcon 9 uses RP-1 for fuel (a highly refined kerosene derivative). As the fuel tanks empty, helium is pumped in to keep fuel tank pressure constant. The helium tanks themselves…

SpaceX crs-7 Crash

SpaceX just failed in its third attempt to make history. On Sunday morning it tried and failed to retrieve one of its Falcon 9 rockets, the CRS-7, after a launch, which would have made it the first reusable rocket ever. But just a few minutes after takeoff, two minutes and 14 seconds to be precise, the rocket exploded into tons of pieces. It was traveling about 1 kilometer per second at an altitude of 40 kilometers. The vehicle has broken up,NASA…
