    how far is it rocket from you? 300 or 400ft, people don't realize how small this rocket actually is, to put it in perspective, the rocket is no bigger than a small firecracker, thankfully it didn't collide with all those quadcopters that were flying above the rocket which are easily 50 times bigger than the rocket, they sent up a cricket for this historic launch because next to humans, dolphins, and apes, the cricket in all its various species is easily the next smartest species on the IQ ladder on this planet, and of course due to size restrictions a cricket was the obvious choice, sure cockroaches are rezilient but dumb as a post as proven in a basic Mensa IQ test, not to mention probably the size of the rocket it self so cricket was it, the cricket was placed in a small sturdy tempered glass ball glued to the tip of the rocket with enough leg room for it to sit comfortably in its seat with all the controls and keypads accessable for it to communicate to ground control and it was fitted with a very small headset, no monittor though because of it micro sized requirements it just hasn't been invented yet, so the cricket is limited to audio communication and keyboard typing, we recieved the 1st audio message which just sounded like a loud hissing noise almost like when you're frying something cold in fryer oil, first typed message was "uhivsaaicbikais;oasonaj;'/." trully historic, still trying to figure out what it was trying to say, haven't heard from it for over 2 hrs now, probably taking a nap

    • javier migoya
      javier migoya 21 gün önce

      Lucky Cricket is truly upset and has stopped communicating with ground control for now, last communication from ground control to Lucky Cricket was "ground control to Lucky Cricket, please respond how's about you tell us about your experiences so far?" Lucky Cricket immediately responded with "Hows about you all Suck My........." and it went silent, either we lost communication from say small solar flares or someone from ground control accidentally pulled the communication feed plug, Interesting response, I bet if I was any good at Wheel of Fortune I could figure the last word, I was never any good at filling in the blanks, I'll keep you posted for sure, thank you for your interest in this historic mission

      you're right it doesn't make sense not to tell someone the whole truth on what to expect, but it seems obvious that Lucky Cricket was misinformed, his fault though, he should of read the fine print, but then again there's no way for us to know if he read it or not because you can imagine how small the print is on a mission briefing made small enough for cricket eyes let alone the fine print on it, he didn't say much before the mission but now he's very vocal and disatisfied

      javier migoya 22 gün önce

      no, but we are still trying to figure out what the cricket typed in its 1st message, it was incoherent we believe due to turbulence, the 2nd Audio we got was clear, lucky cricket said "1st you try to fry me, then you try and freeze, you sons of bitches, get me outta here, I didn't sign up for this Shit!" as you can see lucky cricket is quite the comedian, lol

    I cannot even believe the amount of epic stupidity revealed by this comment thread. So all you airheads know....we humans have been launching rockets into earth's atmosphere since 1944. This is not alien technology. Just because your tiny mind doesn't understand doesn't make it a conspiracy. You are the people who we won't need when us intelligent human beings leave to colonize Mars and we will leave you on earth. IF YOU BELIEVE EARTH IS FLAT YOU SHOULD BE EUTHANIZED.

    • Nolan Burke
      Nolan Burke 2 aylar önce

      The shortest path to space is straight up, but spacecraft need to have a lot of sideways velocity to achieve and remain in orbit. The rocket initially launches straight up to get out of the thicker parts of the atmosphere that cause drag, and gradually turns sideways as the atmospheric resistance decreases. Eventually, the craft will have enough sideways velocity to achieve orbit, and will experience little to no drag while doing so.

Is it ireversible , this path , this modern way of living that is destroing earth ? Do we really need these material objects(cars , tvs , gadgets , gold and diamonds , etc. ) to make us happy ?

    Why cameras were not put on the rocket like this
    I think that NASA wants the world to think that this technology is made by humans ... and that the flag was fired from a US base.
    This experience .. The launch of blatant means that America alone has this technologie ..
    Russia, China and others have this technology ... and this is reliable in video tapes that show these things penetrating the skies of China, Moscow, etc.
    Then the point here ...

      Well, the second stage of the Falcon 9 burns RP-1 (essentially highly purified Kerosene) and Liquid Oxygen. The products of combustion of Kerosene are oxygen, Carbon dioxide, water, and some others. When the high pressure jet of gas expands into the low pressure atmosphere, it diffuses. At this point, the exhaust gases can be considered vapor, defined as "a substance diffused or suspended in the air, especially one normally liquid or solid".

      That's the first stage of the rocket orienting itself for reentry into the atmosphere and landing. It forces nitrogen gas out of tiny nozzles towards the top of the rocket to turn itself around. These are the puffs that you are seeing.

      1- the rocket takes a horizontal position to go into orbit with the earth
      2- if the position was vertical the rocket will not explode, it will fall to the earth because the combustible will never be enough to counter the earth gravity force

    Could anyone look at videos of this rocket taken from the various places of the US, as you can see the moon behind the trail, and figure out (triangulate?) the distance between them (and moon's distance from earth), to prove existing calculations by such obvious experiment? You can see moon appears in different place between the two trails at the end of each found video due to being shot from a different spot on the globe.

    • Thijs Snijder
      Thijs Snijder Aylar önce

      that would be impossible.
      lets say the moon is right above person A (90 degreees) at a distance of 400.000 km,
      Person B is exactly 1000 km west and we ignore the curvature of the earth.
      the angle of the moon for person B would be arctan(400.000/1.000) this gives us an angle of 89.86 degrees.
      the difference in angle between A and B would be 0.014 degrees. try measuring that with a shaky low quality camera.
      If we account for the curvature of the earth that difference would be even less.
