  • The flame sucking back in @ 00:38 is caused by the astronaut's sphincter...

  • Werner VonBraun's crowning achievement. And I mean that with the utmost respect. Culmination of his life's dream. :)

  • This is what we should be spending money on

    NOT on new war jets that can kill a man from 2 miles away
    NOT on new private beach houses for our govement
    NOT for new spy planes to spy on other countries
    NOT on more nuclear bombs to raise our c-peens

    We need to spend money on this. Advancing our world into the next age.

    • @Princess Luna Right well you can go to the middle east and tell them to set aside there religion and make friends as we all know this world is about oil and the super powers will keep on creating new and improved weapons to protect them selves from each other

      My dear, you are forgetting the Government form of the Golden Rule. "He who makes the gold, makes the rules". Stick around. Humans won't be here for long. They're too self-destructive.

  • A culmination of some awesome engineering. I recall these launches as a kid and I am still amazed at the technological achievements that were accomplished back then.

    Now with the Space Shuttle program coming to an end, it seems that we are taking a technological step backwards with the replacement spacecraft. It seems that we have lost the forward thinking and will to "push the envelope".

    • @migueldeagua I'm hoping for the company line... hoping they really are gearing up for the Moon again, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn's moons. Letting this space semi-truck fade into oblivion. I hope...

  • That's awesome but wouldn't it take forever to get to the moon at that speed?

  • Saturn V...probably the BEST multistage rocket ever produced. Not ONE single failure in all of its launches (Apollo 13 doesn't count, that was the CM)
    Saw every launch from Sheppard to Apollo 17. Spent many an early morning watching them "blast off" with uncle Walter on CBS in glorious black and white TV (we only had 3 channels to choose from)

    • @p51d007 You have to wonder though, if the Saturn V had 135 launches like the shuttle will have had - how many failures would there have been? An unanswerable question for sure, but my guess is at least one catastrophic Saturn V failure is not out of the question given that many launches. However, the escape rocket would have given the astronauts a decent chance of survival that the Challenger crew never had.

    • @dethaduj
      Escape speed capable liquid fueled engines are not viable for exactly the reason you state. Too many moving parts in the high-thrust subsystems. I also agree with your view that the LES would have worked. The velocity of a liquid fuel explosion would have been less than the Al/AP fuel in the SRBs on the shuttles.

  • Is this the same rocket as that one in Johnson Space Center Houston?
    I stood next to that big rocket, that thing is huge!

  • Love the way the flames rise but then get "summoned" by something far more powerful. Good choice of music.

  • WOW! Great footage!!!
    I don't know if i'm alone in this. But i have some sort of sixth sense when i see energy/mass moving.
    My stomach just dropped at about 1:30 when those release clamps unlock. I can 'see/feel' the weight of the Saturn launch craft just hanging there!

    I could swear it goes downwards ever so slightly...
    I wonder if anything like this camera speed is done with the STS's?

    Yet for all it's power, it's about as good as it gets as far as old outdated chemical fuel rocket propulsi More..

  • Rocket engines burning fuel so fast
    Up into the night sky so vast
    Burning metal through the atmosphere
    Earth remains in worry, hate and fear
    With the hateful battles raging on
    Rockets flying to the glowing sun
    Through the empires of eternal void
    Freedom from the final suicide

    Into The Void
    Black Sabbath

  • You have to admire how cool these guys were flying on an experimental bomb. I guess the jazz music helped relax them. Favourited and voted.
