    daffidavit2 months ago SpaceX has tracking stations "all over the Earth". So why did they say they had to "cut off video of the Satellite deployment due to lack of tracking stations"? See the 5-minute mark in this video for an admission by SpaceX that they have "tracking stations all over the Earth". Yet we couldn't see the deployment of the satellites due to "lack of tracking stations". Come on, just admit it's for security purposes and I'll buy it, but don't B.S. us as if we're stupid. See 5 minute mark admission of tracking stations all over the earth.

    I read an article today about this launch on how it punched a electromagnetic 560 mile 'hole' in the ionosphere. This was due to the low payload and high speed, near vertical ascent. The hole recovered about 3hrs after the launch but this could have a profound effect on GPS signals

    I thought an object needed to reach 40,000 kph in order to escape our atmosphere, whereas Falcon 9 didn't reach 6,000? Is this because the ISS is still within the Earths atmosphere?

  51. David Ogawa

    David Ogawa3 months ago

    Voltron4ev4 The Falcon9 booster does not reach escape velocity, but does lift the second stage above most atmosphere. However, the second stage does eventually reach or exceed a speed to maintain LEO or even a geosynchronous transfer orbit.

    Thanks Connor. You Irish per chance

  55. planenerd907

    planenerd907Year ago

    you can escape the atmosphere at 1 kph, even 0.01 kph; it doesn't matter how fast you go, you will eventually escape the atmosphere. Hell, you could take stairs! But what you are thinking of is escape VELOCITY. That is the INITIAL speed required to continuously travel away from earth without eventually being pulled back, since gravity decreases in strength with distance. The difference here is that the rocket is CONSTANTLY powered. About the ISS, it is technically in the atmosphere, yes. At an altitude of 400 km, it is not beyond the entire atmosphere which ends at about 690 km. However, the atmosphere is so thin that it induces barely any drag on the ISS (sometimes they do have to course correct to address this still existent drag). Hope this helps!

    First of all ... congrats to SpaceX for getting this right and providing a new and cheaper way to access space. The engineering behind this is massively impressive. Sadly, an unbelievably large number of people believe or want to believe this is all a hoax. I have to think a good many are Russian trolls doing what there paid to do, but many more are ignorant asshats that jump on every conspiracy theory that comes down the pike. Many of these flat earthers are tools for the trolls and as Lenin once said, useful idiots.

    Stupid Flat Earther's can´t even come up with a good reason on WHY such a HUGE, HUGE conspiracy would take place to hide the fact Earth is flat. The most religious ones will argue that the reason the conspiracy takes place is to make the Bible to seem untrue. Riiiiiight. And yet, there are billions of humans who are religious AND know the Earth is round. For hundreds of years. Or thousands in fact. (educated europeans knew the Earth was round through out ALL of the middle ages). The Crusaders? The ones that had education, KNEW the Earth was round.

    ronpat100 personally the anger comes from the fact that anything that disagrees or disproves your belief system gets attacked by people like you. I filmed the entire launch and landing with my own telescope and it's real, yet I've been relentlessly attacked by people on your side who accuse my video of being a fake. Why? Because it disproves you. I was just sharing a video I personally filmed because I think it's an awesome event, but now I have to deal with nutjobs attacking me unprovoked. watch?v=C3j2HjI82mI So guess what? Now you get to deal with me in return. Turnabout is fair play, and there's nothing you can do to stop me. My footage disproves all of these nuts and I will make it my life's mission to make you all as uncomfortable as possible by continuing to film these launches and LZ-1 landings whenever I possibly can. You guys attacked me, now I get to counter attack with my own videos.
